Bone Up on Calcium

Growing years make you vulnerable to bone loss. So getting enough calcium becomes imperative. Even the experts say it is vital to pay extra attention on calcium in your old age for good nerve function and for preventing osteoporosis (a condition in which the bones become fragile and fracture easily).

To help our readers how to bone up to calcium we interviewed Dr Shubhda Bhanot, Nutritionist and Diabetes educator at Medanta the Medicity. Read on what did the expert suggest some top notch food options to add calcium in the golden days.

Eating dairy products like milk and yoghurt, fish, Amaranth, fenugreek, drumstick leaves, and ragi consumption ensure an adequate supply of calcium adds Bhanot. However, there are certain older adults who cannot easily digest milk and milk products so to bridge up the gap they should concentrate consuming other foods, such as broccoli and kale, which also contain calcium.

One can also go for a calcium supplement after adequate advice of a healthcare provider for proper calcium absorption.
