Osteoporosis Recipes

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by loss of bone mass and fragile bones. To prevent or slow the progression of the disease, diet plays an important role. Eating right helps keep bones healthy, even when bone loss is engaged. Calcium and vitamin D are essential nutrients for maintaining good bone health. In older people, studies have shown that adequate intake of calcium can slow bone loss. Vitamin D, in turn, promotes the absorption of calcium, helping to bone health. Proteins also are important because they are essential to the manufacture and repair of tissues. A recipe for preventing osteoporosis will be composed largely of these essential nutrients to prevent or slow the progression of the disease.

Calcium is found in dairy products, but it is also in salmon and canned sardines (with bones), almonds, legumes and green vegetables, such as broccoli and bok choy. The main source of vitamin D is that our own body produces in response to the sun, but in the winter in our northern latitudes, it is difficult to meet our needs in this way. Vitamin D is also found in fortified foods such as milk, soy milk, margarine and orange juice. The only natural sources of vitamin D in food in Canada are fatty fish and egg yolk. Each recipe to prevent osteoporosis contains a good source of calcium and / or vitamin D.
