6 Need to Know Tips on How to Build Strong Bones and Help Prevent Osteoporosis

In this article, you will  learn how to build strong bones and strategies to  prevent osteoporosis. We’ll also explore how osteoarthritis occurs and causes joint pain and inflammation.

Tip 1 – Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin D and Vitamin K strengthens bones and are some of the most important minerals and vitamins needed to keep your bones strong and functioning properly.

Tip 2 – Exercise helps prevent osteoporosis and is important to prevent osteoporosis and to stimulate new bone growth. Bones, just like muscles, become stronger with exercise. Physical activity, especially during childhood and adolescence, can greatly help in increasing strength and bone density.

Tip 3 – Add fermented foods to your diet to make your bones strong. Fermented foods like yogurt and kombucha have high levels of probiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria that reside in your intestinal tract and promote health. Researches indicate that the use of fermented milk products and probiotics can help increase bone mineral density.

Fruits and Veggies

Tip 4 – Consume plenty of fruits, vegetables, herbs & spices to help prevent osteoporosis. Fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices are rich in bone-friendly plant nutrients like polyphenols, essential oils and health-promoting sulfur compounds. These nutrients offer potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant protection. Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress are driving forces behind osteoporosis, since they dramatically increase bone resorption and cause a decrease in new bone production.

Tip 5 – Getting the right amount of sleep helps keep your bones strong. Interestingly, too much and too little sleep are both associated with osteoporosis. Finding the right balance for your body is essential to bone health. Chinese researchers in a study published Osteoporosis International found that those who sleep less than 6 hours daily and those who slept more than 8 hrs a day had an increased risk of osteoporosis.

Tip 6 – Excessive tobacco & alcohol use weakens bones. Smoking, as we all know, is bad for our health. Nicotine, in addition to all the havoc it wreaks in your body, also inhibits the bone protective effects of estrogen. Women who smoke go through a menopausal period earlier than expected, hence hastening the development of osteoporosis. Additionally, getting more than 2 alcohol drinks daily is linked to greater chances of bone loss and fractures

What can you do now to prevent or treat osteoporosis?

Your bone health is just too important not to invest in! Start early and make bone health a part of your daily routine. Thankfully, it’s never too late nor never too early to start building strong bones. Irrespective of your age and the degree of osteoporosis in your body, your body is always  able to make new, strong bone.” End excerpt. Here is the link to the full article.
