We don’t usually concern ourselves with having strong bones until we hit middle age, when bone loss becomes a health-related issue. When our bones do begin to lose density, brittleness and osteoporosis can become dangerous risks.
Osteoporosis has no symptoms and is a concern for all mature adults. Brittle bones can break during what might seem to be a “little” fall. But the lack of mobility causes other health problems. It’s best to prevent by eating the best vitamin-packed foods.
Eating foods rich in vitamins, such as calcium, vitamin D, vitamin K, and magnesium, build and maintain strong, dense bones. Here are seven foods containing these bone-building vitamins, that we can incorporate into our daily diet easily, to ensure that our bones keep us strong at any age.
- Fish, salmon, tuna and sardines
- Dark green leafy vegetables, kale and spinach
- Soybeans, soybean milk and tofu
- Lowfat milk, yogurt and cheese
In addition, avoid carbonated drinks and reduce salt and caffeine. Bone up and be strong!
