People should alter their lifestyles for healthy bones and joints

People over the age of 50 who go through bone and joint discomfort are common. If bones and joints are taken care of properly in the first few years of life, they could be avoided.

Osteoporosis impacts one in three women and one in five men over the age of 50. Osteoporosis is characterized by a decrease in bone mass, or Bone Mineral Density (BMD), which causes minor bone damage and raises the risk of fracture. In our formative years of childhood and adolescence, we developed bone mass; in contrast, as we age, we tend to lose bone mass. By the age of 30, the majority of people reach their peak bone mass. Osteoporosis is more likely to affect women, particularly those who are post-menopausal.

Because of this, failing to take the necessary safeguards when young may result in a serious weakening of the bones in later years of life.

According to Dr. Anup Khatri, a consultant orthopedic surgeon at Global Hospital in Parel, Mumbai, issues with joints and bones can cause pains, discomfort, fractures, as well as stooped posture, or a hunched back, among other things.
We, therefore, provide you with several lifestyle changes that, if implemented at a young age, can sustain the health of your bones and joints:

Nutrition – For a healthy life, one needs a balanced diet that includes fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, and dairy products. Bone health depends on dietary vitamins and minerals including vitamin D and calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

Levocarnitine, vitamin E, and other necessary amino acids are beneficial for muscular health. Consult a qualified dietitian if necessary.

Exercise – Calorie burn during exercise is equally crucial.
