But, we who are in the post-menopausal demographic really need to make sure we get enough calcium . . . through the foods we eat, not by popping a pill.
The National Osteoporosis Foundation reports that more Americans than ever are at risk for breaking a bone, and the best way to make sure that doesn’t happen to us is to make sure we’re eating the right calcium-rich foods, taking enough vitamin D (which is helps our bodies absorb the calcium it needs), and do strength-training exercises to build muscle mass.
Here is a very short video (two minutes!) where I talk through the best foods we can eat to build better bones. Enjoy!
