Osteoporosis can be prevented. Because your body builds bone mass until you’re 30s, prevention should start early. Making sure you get enough calcium and vitamin D (required for your body to use calcium) is essential. Research has shown that exercise early in life boosts bone mass, while exercise later in life helps to maintain it. Here are ways to prevent osteoporosis.
- Adding soy to your diet
- Quitting smoking
- Limiting caffeine to about three cups of coffee a day
- Get good exercise for bone mass like tai chi and lifting weight
- Eat high calcium foods include low fat milk, cheese, ice cream, salmon, yogurt, and leafy green vegetables
