Osteoporosis is also known as “brittle bones.” It is a condition that occurs when not enough bone is being built, or too much is broken down. This frailty of the bones can cause them to break more easily. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, “Worldwide, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, resulting in osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds.”
There are many issues that can impact your risk factors for osteoporosis. Things such as family history, age, gender, and race can increase your risk of getting it. Two risk factors that are within your control include diet and exercise.
The International Osteoporosis Foundation suggests, “adequate levels of calcium intake can maximize the positive effect of physical activity on bone health during the growth period in children.” In addition, “calcium supplementation has been shown to have a positive effect on bone mineral density in postmenopausal women.” In a study in both men and women, fruit and vegetable intake was positively associated with bone density as well.
Starting Your Day With A Good Breakfast
Why not start your day with a delicious and refreshing breakfast that combines both calcium and antioxidants? A yogurt parfait is a great way to start your day. Combine plain yogurt with calcium-fortified granola. Top it with fresh or frozen berries and toasted nuts or seeds.
