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.
