The Shocking Drink that EATS Your Bones (and what to do instead)


“The secret to healthy bones is drinking milk and taking drugs.” THAT is what TV commercials and even most doctors want you to believe… Read more...

But it’s a BIG and very DANGEROUS lie, according to Vivian Goldschmidt, MA, founder of Save Our Bones – the world’s largest natural osteoporosis community.

Yes, your bones need calcium… but consume large quantities of milk and you’re actually draining your bones of this essential mineral!

Here’s why milk is a brutal bone thief:

Milk has an acidifying effect on your body…

Let me explain…. Everything we put into our body gets processed and alters its acid/alkaline balance.

And like everything in nature, the body tries to correct the imbalance. So because milk has an acidifying effect, your body automatically pulls calcium out of your bones to neutralize the acid attack.

Why calcium?

Because it is a POTENT neutralizer. That’s why the main ingredient in some antacids is calcium.

Think of milk entering the body like a raging forest fire and your body’s natural processes is the team of brave firefighters. So your body jumps into action and uses calcium to put out the acidic attack.

And even though milk contains 300 mg of calcium in one cup, unfortunately, the net result is a calcium deficit in your bones.

So… what should you drink instead?

Vivian recommends drinking almond or rice milk as a delicious alternative to milk. And unsweetened fermented or cultured dairy products such as yogurt, kefir, and sour cream are okay to enjoy.
