Exercise and Dietary Routine for Healthy Bones

Bones has this characteristic of becoming brittle and fragile with time. With improper nutrition and lack of exercise, bones become more prone to fractures. It is important to keep a track of your nutrition and physical activity. Here are some diet and exercise tips to keep your bones strong as steel:

Calcium-rich food

Calcium is the major constituent of bones.  It is important to take daily calcium to keep bones healthy. Eating calcium-rich foods like dairy products, beans, and leafy greens can help in restoring calcium levels in the body.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is important for calcium absorption in the body. Without Vitamin D, calcium does not accumulate in bones. Vitamin D is found mostly in sunlight, basking in sun can help in obtaining Vitamin D. Vitamin D supplements can also be taken after consulting your doctor.


Proteins are building blocks of the body and it makes about one-third of bone mass. Adding protein to your diet is equally important. Dairy products, meats, lentils, and soya are some most protein-rich foods.

Weight-bearing exercise

Exercise is crucial in bone health. Our bones are made to take our weight and give strength to our body. The more we use them, the stronger they become. Weight-bearing exercises such as squatting and walking can help in deposition calcium on bones. It is important to consult an expert before starting any hardcore exercise.
