Stronger Bones

Osteoporosis is a condition which results in a loss of bone strength, making bones more fragile and likely to break.

These are tips for stronger bones

1) Regular weight exercise can help maintain strong healthy bones. This includes exercises that involve the legs and other parts where the bones support our body weight

2) Essential fatty acids like lecithin helps in calcium absorption by increasing the contact time in the small intestine

3) Vitamin D is essential for assisting our body in the absorption of calcium. Our skin, in contact with sunlight, will produce Vitamin D on its own. Food like cheese and cereal also contain Vitamin D

4) Reduce consumption of coffee (oopss), carbonated drinks and liquor. These drinks will lead to calcium loss and will also reduce bone density.
