The National Osteoporosis Foundation of South Africa currently puts the number of potential osteoporosis sufferers at one in three women, and one in five men.
A recent study in the Netherlands has shown that pinolenic acid (found exclusively in pine nuts) can help reduce bone loss and therefore lower the risk of osteoporosis.
The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ Siberian Pine Nut Oil is rich in pinolenic acid (Siberian pine nuts contain the highest concentration of pinolenic acid of ALL the pine nut species).
