5 lifestyle tips to keep your bones strong

Building healthy bones is important for leading an active lifestyle and preventing injuries. Here are five lifestyle changes to keep bones strong.

Strength training

Strength training helps increase muscle mass, protects the bones, and increases bone density. 

Eat calcium-rich foods

Calcium is a vital mineral for the development of healthy bones. Incorporate calcium-rich foods in your diet to help keep your bones strong. 

Limit caffeine intake 

Limit caffeine intake, as too much caffeine can prevent calcium absorption and lead to bone loss.

Get vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential for keeping your bones healthy as it helps boost calcium absorption. Spend plenty of time in natural light to get vitamin D. 

Avoid low-calorie diet 

A well-balanced diet that provides 1200 calories daily is essential to build healthy bones. A low-calorie diet can lead to muscle mass and reduce density.
