I just came across some info that made me do a double-take…
Did you know that one in two women and up to one in four men will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis?!!!
Not only that but HALF of all adults age 50 and older are at risk of breaking a bone due to poor bone health.
Even though those worries might seem a long way off, what you do TODAY can have a big impact on your bone health.
👉Here are some key things you can do to help you stay strong and independent as you get older:
● Get enough calcium and vitamin D: Talk to your healthcare provider about ways to make sure you get enough daily.
● Exercise regularly: Make muscle-strengthening and weight-bearing exercise a non-negotiable. A minimum of two resistance training workouts a week is recommended.
● Don’t smoke and DO limit alcohol intake: Both can lead to bone loss.
● Ask your healthcare provider: They can give you info about your risk of getting osteoporosis, and guide you when it comes to getting a bone density test.
If you want help in building healthy habits that support your bones (and the rest of your body, too!), we're here for you.
As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
