It should interest you to know that eating the right food for your bone health is one of the major remedies for weak bones that comes with old age. Before I outline the foods that can help strengthen your bones and joints when you’re growing older, let me explain how bones get weak with old age.

The bones and Joints are made up of a complex or combination of proteins and minerals such as calcium. Calcium is one of the main components of your bones. It forms the structural framework, and it is responsible for the strength and hardness of your bones.

Now what happens when you grow older is that the calcium in your bones and joints can be slowly taken away or reabsorbed, and this consequently leads to the weakness of the bones (osteoporosis) and Joints.

To combat or prevent this problem, diets which are rich in calcium should be consumed more regularly. This is the rationale for the use of foods to help strengthen the bones at old age. These foods work by either supplying dietary calcium to your body which goes to your bones eventually, or by helping to prevent reabsorption of calcium from the bones and Joints.
