I am 33 years old male diagnosed with Osteopenia. Which is strange because:
-I don't take any medicines
-I have been lifting heavy weight in gym from when I was 20
-Not hereditary risk
-I don't smoke or drink alcohol
But I do have some health problems (no energy and very slow regeneration after workout) for which my doctor didn't find any cause (visited endocrinolog and some other specialists). I was very low with vitamin d before, but now I have been taking it as supplements from when I was 28.
Anyway I am reading that "being too acid" could also contribute to Osteopenia, despite some doctors will deny it. Skeleton (in the form of alkaline salts of calcium) provides the buffer needed to maintain blood pH and plasma bicarbonate concentrations when renal and respiratory adaptations are inadequate and this can result in bone lose.
There was also double blind study which showed reversal of osteoporosis is possible with just potassium citrate (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/170...). Now I don't know who to believe, but I have had very low urine ph levels for years. It is always below 6 through all day, morning or night and most time it stays at 5,5. So I am thinking there could be something on it.
I found that the most simple and basic alkalinizing supplements are potassium, calcium and magnesium citrates. Does anybody have any opinion about that? Do you think alkalinizing supplements could help?
