#Bone builders

Do you have strong and healthy bones? Here are some bone building nutritional recommendations:

1. Whey protein- helps build muscle, prevents bone loss and creates new bone tissue

2. Green Tea- the polyphenols in green tea help reduce bone loss associated with hormonal imbalances that occur as you age

3. Dairy Products- Skim milk with fortified vitamin D,  has been shown to deliver more calcium than whole milk and the vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium

4. Berries- berries contain vitamin C which nourishes soft tissues, like ligaments and tendons, which help keep your bones flexible and strong

5. Leafy greens- contains the bone building essentials, like calcium, magnesium and vitamin K

6. Fish- like salmon, has significant amounts of vitamin D, which is crucial for calcium absorption
