What can I do so that I can prevent osteoporosis as I age?
When it comes to osteoporosis, it is much easier to prevent than to treat--and sooner is better than later!
After about the age of 30, your bone density starts to decline, especially after menopause
. You will want to do everything you can to slow the process and keep your bones strong.
Get Ready! Get Set! Go!
Because bone density is easier to maintain than to reverse the effects of osteoporosis, here are some keys to building strong, healthy bones, even after menopause:
- Include weight-bearing activity into your daily routine.
- Get plenty of calcium and vitamin D.
- Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and sodas with phosphates.
- Quit smoking.
- Include protein, healthy fats, and phytoestrogens in your diet.
- Get treated for depression if necessary.
Along with all of this, be sure you make your environment safe by eliminating risks for tripping and falling.
It is never too late to take care of your bones. If you haven’t already, start creating bone-healthy habits today for stronger bones tomorrow. Here’s to a stronger you!
