5 Foods To Eat To Improve Bone Health

Published on

Sometimes it is hard to remember that the foods we eat are how we get the nutrients we need to stay stronger and healthier for longer. A lot of us just think about eating as a way to fix hunger. When it comes to your bone health, there are certain foods that you should try to fit into your diet to do more than just stop your stomach from growling.

1. Eggs

The morning is the perfect time to add new foods to your diet because it gets your day started on the right foot. If you don’t already eat eggs for breakfast, you should start! In rodent models, they found that egg yolk has the ability to increase bone mineral density and reduce cancellous bone loss.

2. Spinach

Pop-eye has some big muscles, he needs strong bones to carry all of that! Spinach is packed full of vitamin K which has shown in studies to help with osteoporosis. Spinach also encourages your body to produce osteocalcin, a protein that is essential for strong bone health.

3. Salmon

Seafood lovers rejoice! Oily fish like salmon are full of vitamin D which is needed for healthy bones. There is even a low amount of calcium in salmon which can help give your bones an extra boost of strength.

4. Prunes

Dried plums have the highest source of Vitamin K compared to other commonly eaten fruits. Studies show that prunes help improve calcium balance, reduce bone reabsorption, and enhance bone formation.

5. Onions

Make sure to keep some fresh mints on hand for this one, because sometimes being healthy can be a little stinky! Studies have found that women who eat onions have less bone loss during menopause. They also found that eating onions reduces your risk of hip fracture.
