In tandem with keeping active, it’s also important to fuel your body with the right stuff. Calcium is a well-known bone food, and can easily be ingested via cheese, milk, and other dairy sources. If you can’t consume calcium from dairy, you can also get a good intake from green leafy vegetables, almonds, sardines, dried fruit, pulses and tofu, so there really are options for any diet and taste preference. However, calcium alone isn’t the answer, you also need Vitamin D as this enables your body to absorb the calcium. You can up your Vitamin D levels through sunlight (being careful to avoid getting burned, of course) from foods such as eggs, fortified yoghurt, oily fish and lamb’s liver. Alternatively you can boost your Vitamin D levels by taking supplements. Again, if you have questions around what’s right for you, it’s best to speak to a specialist who can advise you based on your situation.
