Depression raises risk of osteoporosis

If you've ever suffered from real, down-in-the-dumps depression, you may have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis.

Scientists are still trying to pinpoint the connection, but many think it has something to do with the hormone cortisol. When people are depressed, their adrenal glands go into overtime and produce too much cortisol, which can cause your bones to thin and lose density.

Other factors related to depression could also contribute to osteoporosis, like not eating right and getting any exercise. And if your doctor has prescribed medication to treat your depression, ask him about side effects. Several drugs used to treat depression can cause bone loss.

Build your bones with chocolate

Chocolate lovers now have a reason to splurge without feeling guilty. A new candy-like product, called Viactiv Soft Calcium Chews, can satisfy your chocolate craving and strengthen your bones, too. Each chew contains 500 milligrams (mg) of calcium, which is half the daily requirement for a premenopausal woman, as well as vitamins D and K to help your body absorb the calcium. Eating two squares a day is a sweet way to get the extra calcium your body needs.

Just be sure you don't overindulge, especially if you are taking aspirin or some other anticoagulant regularly. Too much vitamin K can interfere with these blood thinners.
