Top 5 Natural Ways to Boost Your Bone Health

Do you take care of your bones?

Strong bones are essential for living a resilient and fulfilling life.

Healthy bones allow you to stand, walk, run, sit, work, and play.

Unfortunately, as we age our bones naturally begin to deteriorate and become weaker. This can lead to degenerative bone diseases such as osteoporosis.

In fact, your bones reach their peak density around age 30 and begin to slowly decline from there.

But the good news is that there are many easy and natural strategies you can use to maintain your bone health as you age.

Here are the top 5 natural ways to boost your bone health:


Eat More Vegetables

Vegetables are loaded with phytonutrients that protect and strengthen the bones.

These nutrients include antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

One of the most important nutrients found in vegetables is Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is beneficial for bone health in a number of different ways. This vitamin is crucial for the production of collagen which is an important protein  found in the structure of the hair, skin, nails, connective tissue, and bones.

Vitamin C is also a precursor to the body's "master antioxidant" glutathione. This antioxidant can help protect the bones from the degenerative effects of oxidative damage.


Reduce Sugar Consumption

Many people are not aware that consuming sugar can actually deplete your body of important minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium.

This is best illustrated by the idea that sugar causes tooth decay. Most people think this is because the sugar sits on the teeth and eats away at the enamel. This is not how it actually happens, however.

Sugar consumption increases the the body's need for minerals which can draw minerals out of the tooth from the inside out thus weakening the enamel and leaving the tooth vulnerable to tooth decay.

This same exact process can happen in regards to your bones leading to degenerative bone diseases such as osteoporosis.


Weight Bearing Exercise

Exercise that puts healthy stress on the bones by increasing load has been shown to have a positive impact on bone density.

This is because the bones adapt to the stresses placed upon them by becoming stronger, denser, and less brittle.

The best types of exercises include weight lifting, walking, hiking, skiing, rebounding, jump rope, and various forms of strength training.

Be wary, however, that some other chronic forms of weight bearing such as long distance running on concrete can ultimately be detrimental to bone health over time.


Get Healthy Sun Exposure

More and more evidence is coming out suggesting that vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients for optimal bone health.

We all know that vitamin D is obtained from sun exposure.

But what many people do not know is that around 30 minutes of mid-day unobstructed sun exposure is required every day in order maintain adequate vitamin D production.

Most people are unable to meet this requirement which is why there is widespread deficiency of vitamin D and this is also why it may be wise for you to supplement with vitamin D

We include vitamin D in our bone strengthening Silical System formula.


Supplement with Collagen

Collagen is one of the most abundant protein in the body.

As mentioned earlier, it makes up the structural matrix of the skin, hair, bones, joints, and connective tissue of the body.

Adequate bioavailable collagen supplementation provides the body with the building blocks necessary to rebuild bones and maintain their strength and resilience throughout life.

This is why we include collagen in our Joint Formula.


Build Better Bones

With these easy and natural strategies you can begin to support your bone health so that you are not a victim of degenerative bone disease as you age.

It is really quite simple.

Eat a healthy diet full of fresh vegetables and low in sugar. Get adequate bone building exercise. Prioritize moderate sun exposure and supplement with vitamin D and collagen protein.

If you can manage even a couple of these recommendations, you will be rewarded with better bone health.
