Make Bones Stronger

Comments Off on Make Bones Stronger

Did you know? Poor bone health can cause conditions such as rickets and osteoporosis and increase the risk of breaking a bone from a fall later in life. That’s why you need sufficient calcium to strengthen your bones and vitamin D to help your body absorb calcium. According to research, adults need 700mg of calcium a day. You should be able to get all the calcium you need by eating a varied and balanced diet.

Here is a list of foods that are good sources of calcium:

  • milk, cheese, and other dairy foods
  • green leafy vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, and okra, but not spinach
  • soya beans
  • tofu
  • soya drinks with added calcium
  • nuts
  • bread and anything made with fortified flour
  • fish where you eat the bones, such as sardines and pilchards
