Drinking Calcium Water Can Reduce Osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis affects more than 75 million people in the United States, Europe and Japan and many millions through the world. Now it is recommended that drinking calcium water may help in reducing osteoporosis.

Calcium is a key element that prevents osteoporosis. And majority of the people do not consume enough of this nutrient. "This is a benefit not just for older individuals with osteoporosis but for many teenagers, and those in their twenties where it is crucial to achieve peak bone mass," says Dr. Andrew J. Laster, MD, FACR, of the Arthritis & Osteoporosis Consultants of the Carolinas. Now a local natural water drink in USA is advertising it and doctors are recommending the drink. The calcium is bio-available, or readily absorbed, as the calcium in milk.

"Osteoporosis currently has a mortality rate equivalent to breast cancer," Says Dr. Joseph Lane, Chief of Osteoporosis Prevention at Cornell's Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Yet, Dr. Lane says, "Osteoporosis is a Preventable disease."

The calcium drink is called Sanfaustino. Each one-liter bottle of Sanfaustino contains over 45% of the adult RDA for calcium -- without the fat and calories of other calcium sources. Sanfaustino is sodium free and has been enjoyed by Italians since 1894.
