Bone Care!

It’s a fact of life: As you age, your bones become thinner and lose their density. Over time, you become more prone to injury.

Following are the steps to pause thinning of bones.

  1. Eat lots of vegetables: Vegetables are the best source of Vitamin C, which stimulates the production of bone-forming cells. Greens and yellows have been shown in studies to help with bone mineralization.
  2. Add Vitamin D to your day: To help absorb calcium Vitamin D is required. Early morning walk in the sunlight is the best source of Vit D.
  3. Smoking & Alcohol consumption: Loss of bone mineral density is associated with tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption
  4. Regular Bone density checkup: There are tests to measure bone mineral density that helps to determine risks of osteoporosis and fracture. It is recommended that women are tested within two years of menopause.
