Our bones need particular attention; at least, if we want to have them strong and healthy when we grow old. I suppose that people in their 20s and 30s do not really worry much about their bones but seeing as how the older people have problems with their bones, I think that it is never too early to try and build up our own bones. My mother would tell you the same thing – she is now suffering from osteoporosis and man, is it hard for her!
So here are some kinds of food that can help you build up those bones as early as you can.
Alaskan King Crab
You can always go for calcium pills but why settle for something routine and boring when you can eat lotsa crab? The Alaskan King Crab is very high in protein and very low in fat. More so, it has a lot of zinc, which is very good for making your bones healthy. Per 3.5 ounce serving, you can get 7 mg of zinc – and you get to enjoy the succulent meat as well!
Yeah, prunes are known for other benefits but did you know that it contains a considerable amount of boron and copper? These two things help prevent osteoporosis. So the next time you get the munchies, grab a handful of prunes!
Eew…well, I do not particularly like oysters but for those who do, then good for you! Not only does this shellfish help prevent prostate cancer, it also contains zinc and copper, which can help increase bone health.
