When we talk about health, we often mention ways to keep our weight and our hearts in tip top shape, but we often overlook another very important part of our bodies … our bones! Our bones are vital to us for many reasons, they keep us standing, walking, talking and they form protective barriers around organs like our kidneys, liver and heart.
Making sure that our bones stay healthy as we age is more important than we realize sometimes, and even though we’ve always been told that foods like milk, yogurt and cheese are the best ways to get the calcium and vitamin D needed to maintain bone health, there are plenty of other great foods out there that can do the same thing.
Check out these four foods you need to add to your diet today to keep your bones strong for years to come.
These are just some of the good sources of calcium and vitamin D. I even read somewhere that there are other fishes that can be a great source of vitamin D aside from omega-3. How about the green leafy vegetables? Are there others that can be added to this list?
