As we age, our bones can become weak and porous. Sometimes this can lead to osteoporosis and brittle bones that easily fracture. Luckily, there are things you can do to help strengthen your bones.
One of the most important steps you can take to improve your bone health is to intake a sufficient amount of vitamin D and calcium. Besides taking supplements, you should also eat plenty of leafy greens and spend at least 20 minutes in the sun per day.
The second thing you should do is exercise, especially with weights. You don’t need heavy weights to get the desired effect. Resistance and weight training can help strengthen muscles, which in turn helps strengthen bones.
