MOST people may feel disgust consume claw (leg) of chicken, although it has been processed into tempting delicates. Perhaps because remember the past The Rooster, who liked to stir up garbage to find food. Could also be due to see the shape of a chicken claw which only consists of bone, muscle and a little skin. Although insignificantly, was a lot of consuming chicken claw very healt because contained calcium, collagen, hydroxyapatite which naturally can maintain bone strength. During the time people assume to prevent bone loss (osteoporosis) enough with calcium, when in fact it is not enough. Because, In fact, calcium can only strengthen the exterior bones. Therefore, many cases of osteoporosis are not cured simply by drinking milk calcium.

hi asvokatku we just do not eat chicken feet here int the US and to'me I am sorry to say it sounds a bit gross. and do you then eat the bone as that would be the only place having any calcium and you would have to eat an awful lot of them to do much good in getting enough calcium. I prefer getting mine from milk, calcium tablets, and eating canned salmon with its softened bones. that is at least not yucky looking. Along with the calcium we must take vitamin d in order to absorb the calcium from foods containing goodly amounts of calcium. I will leave the chicken claw eatingto those who are used to it.

Sounds interesting. However, The best way to prevent osteoporosis is to drink high calcium drinks such as milk because it contains Vitamin D which will help absorb calcium into our bones. Vitamin D is then converted into its active form, calcitriol. Calcitriol regulates the concentration of calcium in the blood thus promoting the healthy mineralization, growth and remodeling of our bones. It is vitamin D which is responsible for the regulation of the amount of calcium in our body and thus more vitamin D in the body will yield into more calcium concentration in our body thus preventing people from osteoporosis.

yes, you are correct ... to prevent brittle bones / osteoporosis, drinking milk has high calcium is the proper way. But remember, it's for prevention. For those who already have a porous bone / osteoporosis, high calcium milk, not necessarily effective

I didn't know that chicken feet has large amount of calcium in it and can prevent osteoporosis. Aside from chicken feet and dairy products, vegetables and fruits also has calcium like oranges, spinach, brocolli, mustard and brussel sprouts. Salmon is also rich in calcium. Chicken feet or claw might be a wonder if it really prevent one in having osteoporosis.
