Guide To The Foods To Eat For Osteoporosis

Dark And Leafy Greens

The importance of calcium for treating osteoporosis cannot be overstated. Individuals need a lot to ensure they minimize the symptoms and unfortunate side effects associated with this brittle bone condition. This is why osteoporosis patients will need to eat lots of dark and leafy greens in their diet. Dark and leafy greens include kale, collard greens, spinach, and broccoli. Collard greens contain 232 milligrams of calcium for every 100 grams. This is more than kale’s 150 milligrams for every 100-gram serving. Unfortunately, both of these leafy greens can be bitter, which means that individuals are less likely to consume them. This is something that osteoporosis patients will have to force themselves to overcome.

These dark and leafy greens also contain vitamin K, which studies suggest influences bone density. Specifically, if individuals do not get enough vitamin K in their blood, they will have lower bone density. However, this vitamin is much harder to consume enough of than calcium. This is why everyone needs more greens in their diet than they might believe.

Patients need to eat more of this next food if they are going to have a chance at improving their bone strength.
