Stand tall against osteoporosis.
No matter what your age, it’s never too late to stop bone loss now for better posture and fewer fractures down the road. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Pump it up
    Make weight-bearing exercise a regular habit to increase bone density and prevent osteoporosis
  • Cut the caffeine
    Avoid excessive calcium loss in the urine by switching to healthier beverages
  • Aim for lifelong calcium and vitamin D nutrition
    An extra 800 mg of calcium and 400 to 800 IU of vitamin D a day can help protect the bones, from childhood through adulthood
  • Get your soy
    Make tofu, soy milk, soy protein, and other sources of beneficial isoflavones a regular part of your diet
  • Watch the salt
    Avoid excessive salt intake and high-salt processed and restaurant foods that may contribute to calcium and bone loss
