Are You Building Healthy Bones?

Whether you’re a teen, middle-aged adult, or senior citizen, it’s critical to have strong, healthy bones. After all, bones represent your supportive structure.
If they become brittle, osteoporosis can set in, resulting in fractures.

Fortunately, there are some simple actions you can take to boost your bone health:

• Exercise each day. Walking, running or other forms of exercise can help you build stronger bones.
Weight-bearing exercise, in particular, is an effective way to protect against osteoporosis.

• Consume more calcium. Leafy green vegetables, Greek yogurt, and salmon are excellent and healthy sources of calcium that can help keep your bones strong.

• Remember your vitamin D. Tuna, egg yolks, and sardines are all excellent sources of vitamin D which also contributes to bone strength. Just 10-15 minutes of safe sun exposure daily also can boost your vitamin D levels.

Vitamin D deficiency symptoms have been linked to numerous health problems, including heart disease, depression, and even cancer.
Here are 10 signs you’re not getting enough vitamin D:

  1. Depression or anxiety
  2. Bone softening (low bone density) or fractures
  3. Fatigue and generalized weakness
  4. Muscle cramps and weakness
  5. Joint pain (most noticeable in the back and knees)
  6. Blood sugar issues
  7. Low immunity
  8. Low calcium levels in the blood
  9. Mood changes and irritability
  10. Weight gain

Remember, NRT (Nutrition Response Testing) can detect vitamin D deficiencies…
