Healthy & Strong Bones At Every Age
Healthy & Strong Bones at Every Age
As we age losing bone density means weaker bones that are more prone to break and bones that cannot support as much weight. In essence, this makes us feel weaker.
We can tackle this problem in two ways. With the right kind of exercise and targeted nutrition via food or quality supplements.
For exercise, yoga and general fitness training, are great choices. With a qualified instructor, you will be able to ease into a program without the fear of injury. Both Yoga & Simple Fitness routines will provide plenty of weight bearing positions that will help to strengthen your bones.
When considering the correct foods and nutritional supplements, your goal will be to get the right amount of Vitamin D and Calcium.
Foods such as, Broccoli, Collards, Spinach and Kale will suffice so long as you each about 3.5 oz a serving daily.
Some quality nutritional supplements are Bone Solid by Country Life, and Bone-Up by Jarrow Formulas. If you go this route, make sure to take these products as directed to get sufficient Vitamin D3 and Calcium.
