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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Smoking & Alcohol consumption: Loss of bone mineral density is associated with tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption
- 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.
