Dr. Oz: Strong Advice for Bone Health

Posted:

Make no bones about it, the human skeleton is remarkable. It constantly rebuilds itself throughout life.

For bones to stay strong, you need a steady supply of regulating hormones and minerals. Upset that balance and you can get Osteoporosis, a condition that causes brittle bones where even a slight bump or a fall can cause a fracture.

Here’s how to strengthen up your bones. Get 1,200 milligrams of Calcium and 1,000 international units of vitamin D, ideally through food and natural sunlight, but supplements can work too.

Also try fermented dairy, like real yogurt, which can give you vitamin K too.

Do weight-bearing exercises. Those are the ones that cause you to push, pull, or lift.

Stop smoking, limit your alcohol to one drink and day, and skip the soft drinks – they all rob the body of calcium.
