Prevent Osteoporosis: 4 Tips for Keeping Your Bones Healthy and Strong


Did you know that osteoporosis affects 50% of women aged 50 or older, increasing their risk of bone fractures?


While this statistic may seem alarming, the good news is that osteoporosis can be preventable with the right strategies. By prioritising bone health early on, you can reduce your risk of fractures and enjoy a healthier, more active lifestyle in your 50s and beyond. Here are some tips to help you keep your bones strong and resilient.

  1. Stay Active: Regular exercise is crucial for maintaining bone density and strength. Engage in weight-bearing activities like walking, jogging, dancing, or strength training to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.

  2. Eat a Balanced Diet: Nutrition plays a significant role in bone health. Ensure your diet is rich in calcium, vitamin D, and other essential nutrients that support bone strength. Incorporate dairy products, leafy greens, fortified foods, and supplements as needed to meet your daily requirements.

  3. Avoid Smoking and Limit Alcohol Intake: Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can weaken bones and increase the risk of fractures. If you smoke, seek support to quit, and limit alcohol intake to no more than one drink per day for women and two drinks per day for men.

  4. Get Regular Check-ups: As you age, it's essential to monitor your bone health regularly. Women over 50 should consider scheduling a DEXA scan to assess bone density and identify any signs of osteoporosis. Early detection allows for timely intervention and treatment.
