Don't let your bones suffer unnecessarily! The body's need for calcium is essential, but a calcium supplement may not be the solution. Instead, treat your diet as medicine. Individuals who consume 5 servings of vegetables and fruits a day have a higher bone density. Let us tell you why...
A study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism explains that consuming a more alkalized diet can improve bone health by reducing the excretion of calcium from the body. As the body matures with age, it becomes more challenging to eliminate acids produced by metabolic processes. Bones begin to break down and release minerals like calcium in a process called bone resorption as a way to neutralize the acid build up. In general, most vegetables and fruits are alkalizing whereas animal meats and all processed foods are acidifying.This is a natural process and the body thus regains what it needs through diet. That is why it is essential to treat your diet as a means of nourishment.
Our juices are loaded with naturally occurring calcium as well as a long list of other minerals and vitamins. We'll keep your body alkalized, so it doesn't have to rely on the fabric of your bones to eliminate the acidity from eating too many of the wrong foods.
Here is a list of some great high in calcium foods to add to your diet:
Celery, Collard Greens, Arugula, Kale, Tomatoes, Spinach, Oranges, Dates, Figs, Apricots, Almonds, Sesame Seeds, Soybeans
