Why You Don't Want To Take Boniva: Dr Joel Fuhrman Explains

Dr. Joel Fuhrman explains that if you are considering taking a drug like Boniva, you need to understand that a proper diet rich in green vegetables combined with proper Vitamin D supplementation is a much more effective and less dangerous path to greater bone health: 

Common Side Effects of Boniva 

Boniva has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which a group of people taking the drug have side effects documented and compared to another group not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine. In these studies, the most common side effects of Boniva included:

 * Back pain -- in up to 13.5 percent of people
 * Indigestion or heartburn -- up to 11.9 percent 
* Bronchitis -- up to 10 percent 
* Arm or leg pain -- up to 7.8 percent 
* Abdominal pain (stomach pain) -- up to 7.8 percent 
* Diarrhea -- up to 6.8 percent * Headache -- up to 6.5 percent. 

Other common Boniva side effects (occurring in 2 to 6 percent of people) included: 

* Infections 
* Weakness 
* Vomiting 
* High cholesterol 
* Muscle pain 
* Arthritis 
* Dizziness 
* A spinning sensation (vertigo) 
* Pneumonia 
* Sore throat 
* Bladder infection (urinary tract infection or UTI) 
* Constipation 
* Insomnia (see Boniva and Insomnia).

If you are looking for an excellent vitamin D supplement, Dr. Fuhrman has created a unique formula which combines Vitamin D3 with calcium and magnesium that are designed for optimal absorption:

  • Vitamin D3 – cholecalciferol – a vitamin which is fat-soluble and promotes the increased absorption of calcium and phosphorus in the intestines
  • Contains calcium and magnesium that are balanced for the best absorption
  • Critical for bone growth as well as the maintenance of healthy bone density
  • Contains silica, a trace mineral that is also a significant component of collagen
  • Enhances the absorption of calcium for optimum bone health, as well as strong nails and hair
  • Reduces the risk of osteoporosis and helps treat existing osteoporosis
  • Critical for a healthy immune system as well as cell growth regulation and the prevention of cancer
  • 180 capsules – 60 day supply
