Low bone density could mean you’re at risk or already have Osteoporosis. As you get older, Osteoporosis can weigh on the mind and can be a bigger and bigger issue. It’s been proven that exercise and eating right can lead you in the right direction to keeping your bone density up and avoiding painful injuries later. There is one fun easy way to increase bone density that almost anyone can do, it’s called a Whole Body Vibration Machine and it does exactly as it says.
When we think of Vibration Machines, many of us think about the picture above, ladies in their one piece bathing suits getting shaken for a number of minutes in hopes to stay thin. Even though this ancient concept of the whole body vibration machine is the same, technology has changed dramatically as well as the knowledge of how to shed fat and increase bone density.
Where can I buy these machines?
These machines are available through fitness stores for purchase, however you can purchase time at some gyms or beauty procedure locations (some doctor offices that specialize in Botox or laser type locations).
Sites like Amazon have Whole Vibration Machines however beware, there are machines that specialize in weight loss, machines that specialize in increasing bone density and machines that focus on both. The difference is achieved by the direction the machine vibrates. This video discusses the differences between machines, we do not encourage the purchase of this particular brand, however it does show the difference and benefits between machines: http://youtu.be/a5tbroqEq3w
What other benefits may these machines have?
“Advocates say that as little as 15 minutes a day of whole-body vibration three times a week may aid weight loss, burn fat, improve flexibility, enhance blood flow, reduce muscle soreness after exercise, build strength and decrease the stress hormone cortisol.” -http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/fitness/expert-answers/whole-body-vibration/faq-20057958
