Osteoporosis - How to prevent?

Thankfully, there are several ways to prevent osteoporosis:
  • Get enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet 
    It is recommended that you take about 1000 – 1200mg of calcium and 800 international units of vitamin D each day. These includes calcium and vitamin D that are naturally present in food and drinks, and also those in supplements.   
  • Exercise
    Weight-bearing exercises such as walking, jogging, or climbing stairs help to prevent osteoporosis. Also, exercise in general helps to strengthen muscles and avoid falls. 
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid heavy alcohol intake
