HEALTHY BONES TIDBITS

Having a healthy diet helps in strengthening bones. Eat foods that are rich in calcium, vitamin C, vitamin K and vitamin D.

If you are a regular smoker, quitting it will improve your bones. Smoking reduces bone density and this is bad for an aging person.

Check your medications and ask your doctor, if there are any problematic side effects on your
bones.

Supplement your diet to increase the intake of essential vitamins and minerals that strengthen your bones. Refer to your doctor for the right kind of supplements.

Vitamin D is essential for bone development & strengthening and the major source is sunlight. So spending an ample amount of shine in sunlight will help you a lot.

Alcohol consumption should be reduced to the minimum. Even soda is as harmful as alcohol and a controlled consumption of both can help bone strength a lot.
