FYI Friday: Osteoporosis & Bone Loss

Dr. Eric on how to help prevent bone loss with your food choices.

#fyifriday folks.

#DrEric wants you to know that 55% of adults over 50 years of age have some form of #osteoporosis or #osteopeniašŸ˜± . To help prevent #boneloss be sure you are eating plenty of both green leafy šŸŒ±and cruciferousšŸ„¦vegetables as they are high in not only #calcium, but also #magnesium and #VitaminK

(Calcium alone doesnā€™t build bone! šŸ¤”Your body needs a combination of ALL of these to do the job). . It is also important that you get enough #VitaminD from either sun exposureā˜€ļøor supplements, so that your bones can properly absorb these #nutrients. . Weight bearing exercise is likewise essential for #bonehealth because bones develop specifically as a response to gravityšŸŒŽ . #spinach #broccoli #kale #brusselsprouts #cabbage #collardgreens #sunshine #health #menopause #wellness #nutrition #foodasmedicine #foodheals #smha #skeletalhealth www.santamonicahealingarts.com
