Nutrition is a key component in bone health and in managing osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis Canada stresses the benefits of a food first approach when getting the daily value of calcium and protein for bone health and in the prevention and management of osteoporosis.
Protein & Bone Health
Bone is made up of calcium, other minerals and protein, a nutrient that is necessary for building and repairing body tissues, including bones. Protein is an important nutrient for bone health and in the prevention of osteoporosis. It gives bone its strength and flexibility and is also the big component of muscles, which are, of course, crucial for mobility and in preventing falls.
