Our bones support us and allow us to move. They protect our brain, heart, and other organs from injury. Our bones also store minerals such as calcium and phosphorous, which help keep our bones strong, and release them into the body when we need them for other uses. Ensuring we look after our bones now can optimise our health in the future.
The best place to start is in childhood. Ensuring your children have an adequate intake of calcium and vitamin D (the vitamin that aids in the absorption of calcium) is crucial. School and teenage years are of particular importance. As Kate Carter identifies in her article, our bodies continue to build bone well into our 30’s.
Eating well and ensuring a continuous supply of calcium into your body is not only recommended by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, it is not always readily available in modern diets. Therefore, a supplement is advisable. Sona Calcium + Vitamin D is a one stop shop when it comes to bone health. For more info click here.
Get out and exercise! Exercise should be incorporated into your daily routine, for bone health and for much, much more. Weight- bearing exercise is vital in maintaining bone health throughout your life. Exercising can also make sure you maintain a healthy body weight. Being very underweight or following a very low calorie diet can have significant repercussions when it comes to bone loss.
