Six Effective Tips for Stronger Bones

Six Effective Tips for Stronger BonesOur bones provide the framework that holds our bodies together and it is essential that we keep them healthy and strong any way that we can. Normal activity breaks down your bones and they need to be rebuilt with a combination of diet and exercise. As you get older, it becomes hard for new bone to develop, and eventually more of your bone is being lost than gained. Fortunately, there are things you can do to remedy the problem.

Here are six effective tips for maintaining stronger bones:

1.      Calcium Supplements

 

Most people believe that milk does a body good and that calcium is needed for strong bones, unfortunately many don’t realize that milk can cause more harm than good. A recent Harvard study found a lack of data supporting that eating dairy results in strong bones or improved health. Unfortunately, the researchers found instead that there is many serious health risks associated with dairy consumption, including cancer. The safe bet is to get your calcium through supplements like Health Pak 100 or Calcium by Usana, so you can feel confident you are getting the calcium your bones need.

 

2.      Vitamin D Supplements

Vitamin D is necessary for your body and bones to efficiently absorb calcium. Usana also carries a Vitamin D supplement for people that do not get enough from their diet or that are not able to spend sufficient time in the sun.

3.      Magnesium

 

The third factor you need for maintaining stronger bones is magnesium. Magnesium is also necessary for proper calcium absorption, because it converts vitamins D into its active form. It takes an adequate intake of all three nutrients; calcium, vitamin D, and magnesium, to maintain strong bones.

 

4.      Exercise

Exercise is crucial to all aspects of your health, including your bones. Studies have proven that resistance training and weight-bearing exercises are essential for increasing bone strengthen. Building up your physical strength will also strengthen your bones.

5.      Quit Smoking

 

There are numerous reasons to quit smoking, including bone health. Countless studies have shown that smoking prevents the body from efficiently absorbing calcium, which will decrease bone mass over time.

6.      Reduce Caffeine

 

Caffeine is not as bad as most people think, but unfortunately it is not good for your bones. Too much caffeine will interfere with the body’s ability to absorb calcium. A recent study proved that drinking more than two cups of coffee a day would actually accelerate bone loss in individuals that do not already have a sufficient daily calcium intake.

Your body needs healthy bones to function at its full potential and it is crucial that you follow these six effective tips for maintaining strong bones. Calcium is the key to stronger bones, but it needs vitamin D and magnesium to work efficiently. It is also important to exercise, quit smoking, and reduce caffeine consumption to ensure the calcium has the ability to work its magic and strengthen your bones.
