Everyone has heard someone say to them, “Don’t forget to drink your milk – it’s good for your bones!!” Well, being kids – most of us don’t listen to that advise or even like the taste of milk – I know I didn’t like the taste of milk and even now I have to put some coffee syrup in it!!
*Eat more cabbage, broccoli, and onions
*Have a handful of pumpkin seeds
*Eat more foods high in potassium
*Dandelions – yes the flower. Dandelions also contain silicon which is great to strengthen the bones
*Eat more soybeans, soy products and bananas
*Breastfeeding reduces your risk of getting osteoporosis – so moms – I highly recommend breastfeeding!
*Have sex 3 times a week
*Eat more oranges and apples
*Add more sweet potatoes to your diet
*Green leafy Vegetables – parsley, spinach, and kale
*Eat more avocados – great source of vitamin D!!
*Black pepper – use a little to season your foods!
*Use a little vinegar when you make your soup broths – they dissolve the calcium from the bones of the chicken!!
*Season your foods with lemon juice
*Nuts and legumes
*Avoid refined sugars and chocolates!!!
*Have honey instead of sugar – it helps aid in the calcium breakdown most beneficial for bones
*Watch your fiber intake – it binds the calcium
*Don’t smoke or drink alcohol and cut back on the caffeine!!!
*Believe it or not but dairy products are not the best source of absorbable calcium
*Do weight bearing exercises
*Have more green tea
*I’ve also recently found out that those high-protein meat diets will take the calcium from your bones. So beware of what diets you decide to go with. And avoid Tums – turns out it actually decreases stomach acids needed for calcium absorptions even though it states it’s good for calcium supplements!!
*Try to eat more foods high in vitamins C, D, K, zinc, folate, magnesium calcium
*Always be sure to consult your doctor if you have a current or pre-existing condition before trying natural remedies. Natural remedies are sometimes not best for all people.
