According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, about 10 million Americans have osteoporosis and another 44 million have low bone density which places them at risk of developing osteoporosis. As Baby Boomers age, that number is expected to climb as 10,000 people turning 65 every day. In this interview, bone health expert John Neustadt, ND, explains why a bone density scan is not the most clinically important endpoint and how to identify fracture risk in clinical practice. Neustadt details his whole-person approach to reducing fracture risk that includes medications, diet, lifestyle, environmental, and dietary supplements.

About the Sponsor
NBI was started by John Neustadt, ND, in 2006 when he couldn’t find formulas he needed for his patients. NBI’s clinically validated products unlock people’s full health potential. NBI products solve 2 problems he was having. Existing products didn’t contain the dose or combination of nutrients used in clinical trials and shown to work. Equally frustrating, other companies would cite studies on their websites, but then use lower amounts of nutrients than what was used in the study or use entirely different nutrients that weren’t supported by the research. Neustadt’s approach to formulating product is based on more than 2 decades of clinical research, clinical work with patients and has published more than 100 research reviews and 3 books and was recognized by Elsevier as a Top Ten Cited Author in the world for his work.
