Take Care of Your Bones

Time to take care of your bones before they become shaky! A strong skeletal framework is essential for providing a structure to the body and to protect the internal organs. It is also important to have good posture, balance and strength. Calcium and phosphorous are the two nutrients responsible for developing strong bones. Try to avoid calcium supplements and go for calcium-rich food to have a healthy bone-friendly diet.

There are five types of food that help to boost the bone density: milk, orange juice, dairy products, nuts and seeds, and greens. Of the lot, milk is the best choice for healthy bones as it contains not only calcium but also a number of nutrients that are important in improving the bone density. Oranges are a rich source of vitamins, minerals and calcium, so ensure that your fruit bowl has your daily dose of oranges. Any of the dairy products like cheese and yogurt can also be used as a preferred source of calcium in addition to seeds and nuts like flax seeds, almonds, pistachios and walnuts. Leafy vegetables like broccoli and spinach contains a good amount of calcium and vitamin D, a magical combination as vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium from food.
