Healthy Bones

Everyone wants to look good. In order to look good you need to take care of the inside as well. Today’s post is about STRONG HEALTHY BONES.

Postmenopausal can experience a significant amount of bone loss the first ten years after menopause. It is so important to eat well, take high quality supplements and do weight bearing exercises.

DIET

  • Eat a low-glycemic diet to avoid spiking your blood sugar. It is important to eat some protein and some fat with all meals to maintain normal blood sugar.
  • Gluten sensitivity might be a problem, I would avoid grains as well.
  • Eat plenty of vegetables and some fruit, (I love berries in my morning smoothies.)
  • Eat calcium-rich foods, nuts, organic or raw cheeses, salmon, dark green vegetables are wonderful. (Sardines with bones are great but personally I don’t enjoy them.)

Supplements

  • Multi-vitamin/Mineral Supplement
  • Calcium/Magnesium
  • Vitamin D (good to get you levels checked)
  • Fish oil
  • Probiotics
  • Digestive Enzyme
  • Fiber (drink lots of water)

It is so important to buy the best pharmaceutical grade supplements that you can. These are what my family and I take.  I highly recommend them! Your bones will thank you:)
