Suitable diet and dietary supplements for osteoporosis?
Please advise me the most suitable diet and dietary supplements for osteoporosis.
While our genes decide the potential height and strength of our skeleton, a lifelong healthy diet combined with regular physical activity helps to optimize the strength of our bones. If you have osteoporosis (porous bones), safe types of exercise and daily supplements of calcium and vitamin D may be recommended by your doctor, along with good sources of calcium, such as milk and dairy foods, calcium fortified soya milk, canned sardines and pilchards, watercress and pulses. Other key nutrients for bone health include protein, vitamin K, magnesium, and potassium.
