Fosteum Description

Fosteum is a medical food, prescribed specifically for those that require a distinctive nutritional need that is not being met by diet alone to help slow bone loss. Osteopenia indicates your bone mass is low and could result in osteoporosis. Fosteum can help slow down bone loss which helps to increase bone formation and reduce the threat of fractures.

If you are a woman approaching menopause, your doctor may recommend Fosteum if you are taking corticosteroids long-term for an inflammatory condition, have a family history of osteoporosis, are inactive or bedridden for an extended period of time, or consume excessive amounts of alcohol.

Let Fosteum Help Take Care of Your Bones

Fosteum contains 27mg Genistein, 20mg Zinc Chelazome, and 200 IU (international units) of Cholecalciferol. Genistein is a hormone-like substance found in soybeans that has shown to be a phytoestrogen that mimics estrogen when your own levels start to drop during menopause. It also contains an antioxidant that helps stop or prevent cell damage from oxidants. Zinc Chelazome is a trace mineral that is important for cell growth and has an essential role in healing burns and wounds. Cholecalciferol is a kind of vitamin D that regulates calcium and phosphorous levels in your body for healthy teeth and bones.

Conditions Treated by Fosteum

Everyone starts to lose bone mass after the age of 30 as the bone build-up gives way to bone break-down. Bone tissue contains two kinds of cells; osteoblasts that build and shape your bones, and osteoclasts that break down the bone tissue to be reabsorbed by your body. Children grow because more bone is built than the amount is destroyed. As adults, things take a bit of a turn and bone building cells cannot keep up with the cells that are breaking down bone. With time, this results in porous bone tissue that can be fractured easily with a fall or bump. Taking better care of your health during the early years may save you from disabilities during the golden years.

Before Starting Fosteum

Ask your doctor about any health risks if you take Fosteum while you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and list any current OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if Fosteum is right for you.

Fosteum Precautions

Do not start taking other supplements or meds without talking to your doctor to be certain the effects of Fosteum will not be compromised. Fosteum should not be given to children. Some foods that should be avoided while taking Fosteum are certain potato chips, tortilla chips, and crackers that contain olestra, a fat substitute that could interfere with the medicinal effectiveness.
