Protect Your Bones From Damages

Unless badly injured or broken, our bones remain the most overlooked part of our body. So frictionless is their alliance in our body that we hardly take a note of the various essential functions that they perform.

Our bones act as a storehouse for essential minerals, especially calcium. With so many essential functions to perform, it is a must that bones are intensively cared for and guarded at every stage of life.


Follow a Calcium-Rich Diet

As a first good step, adults must incorporate calcium-rich food into their diet. Milk, cheese, and other dairy foods are perfect options for reaching the body’s calcium needs. Other than these, soy milk, green leafy vegetables, leguminous pulses, salmon, and nuts are good sources of calcium too.

Exercise Regularly

Yes, exercise is vital, and you must do it routinely. It will not only keep your movements sharp and active but also keep the muscles and bones strong.

Lounge in the Sun

Ample exposure to the morning sunlight is the ideal natural tonic for bones. This is especially important for people who are 50 years and older. Sunlight is a natural source of vitamin D which incites calcium and phosphorus intake in bones.

Say No Tobacco and Alcohol

Over-consumption of tobacco and alcohol can considerably affect the calcium balance in the body. Furthermore, it can also hinder the generation of bone-protecting hormones and vitamins.
