2- greens

watery vegetables

 

Leafy green veggies are good for the body, we all know that, What we don’t know is that they provide an often overlooked calcium source.

3- Nuts

mixed unsalted nuts

Nuts provide a great source of calcium, zinc and magnesium. Many people are afraid of eating nuts for the fear of getting fat. Don’t worry, eating them in moderation won’t get you fat and will give you strong-healthy bones.

 

4- Cut the salt

Too much sodium is not good; It leeches calcium from the bones. An acceptable amount should be less than 2,400 mg per day.

 

5-Weight-Bearing Exercise

weight bearing exercises are exercises that use one’s own weight to strengthen his/her body. An Example of these exercises are walking, jogging and yoga.
