The scare of Osteoporosis has become more than it was before. As we grow older, our bones start to give way. We can do our best in our young years so that we don’t have to worry too much about our bone health as we age.
A few ideas are listed below:
Fruits and Veggies!
Your mother must have insisted on you having your greens when you were little. Well, she was wise. Fruits and vegetables are a great source of Vitamin C, that is important for the production of bone-forming cells and which help prevent bone damage as well. The right amount of vegetables in one’s diet also helps increase bone density. Kale and spinach are great to help with keeping your bones healthy.
Potassium is powerful when it comes to protecting your bones. It helps neutralize bone-depleting acids that eat away at bones. They help in keeping calcium intact in the body. With the help of potassium compounds that are nutrient-rich – bones can reabsorb minerals and mineral loss through urine is countered. Bananas should be a part of your diet, and they are a great source of potassium and magnesium as well.
A few other things that you could try and do include, reducing the amount of caffeine and alcohol you consume, find out what supplement you can eat to help bone strength, exercise, it is the key to staying healthy and keeping your bones healthy and most importantly get some sunshine to get your dose of Vitamin D.
