5 Foods for Strong Muscles and Bones
In order to have a strong set of bones and muscles, we need food that can help fortify the foundations of our system. What are these? There are a lot actually, but we will only share 5, particularly the following:
Even if you are already way past childhood, you still have to drink milk. Calcium is necessary in the fortification of our bones. Just like a building that needs to be repainted, our body needs to “repaint” calcium into our bones.
And to have a better result, look for the milk that contains not only calcium, but also vitamin D. Vitamin D is responsible for the proper regulation of phosphorus and calcium in your body.
Never miss your green, leafy vegetables. Spinach is not only your typical greens. It contains vital nutrients your body needs such as Vitamin A, iron, fiber, and of course, Calcium. We should all make Popeye our model sailorman.
But what if you cannot fathom the awesomeness of spinach? In short, what if you do not like the taste of spinach? It’s simple. Just add one cup of cooked spinach to your fruit smoothie. You will never notice that it is there!
- Lean meats
Muscles need protein. And it is a fact that we can get protein from lean meats. Did we say meat? Yes. Does it mean you can eat the delicious stake that has been grilled to your liking? Not exactly. If you want to pamper your muscles, eat lean meat such as:
- Lean cuts of red meat
Breakfast is not complete without eggs. Eggs contain a high amount of nutrients that you need. These nutrients are essential for healthy muscles. Not only does it contain protein, but also calcium. If you want to stay fit, you can cut calories by consuming only the white portion of the egg. But if you want to obtain all the essential vitamins and minerals an egg has to offer, we suggest that you eat the whole thing!
Okay, okay, exercise is technically not a food, but our body cannot function well if we do not have it. We need to give importance to exercise the way we give importance to eating. Our body is designed to move around. Give what it needs.
Aside from exercise, we also have to submit ourselves to physical therapy, especially those who have injured themselves because of exercise. Patients who need physical therapy should not skip their session. Every session can maintain or improve the well-being of your injured bones and muscles.
