By the time women reach their 20th birthday, they are at risk for developing osteoporosis. Dr. Oz discusses the risk factors and solutions for this crippling disease. 

 

Risk Factors for Osteoporosis:

  1. Overly thin women - if the circumference of your wrist is less than 6 inches, you could be at risk
  2. Smokers and drinkers

Solutions for Osteoporosis

  1. Calcium - you MUST take 1000mg a day with vitamin D or milk
  2. Kefir - a type of yogurt rich in vitamin K2
  3. Learn how to fall - Dr. Oz demonstrates in the clip, but you want to roll your shoulder so that you somersault on impact.
  4. Walk 1/2 hour each day to stimulate bones to keep rebuilding
