Healthy Table

What can you do to ensure better calcium and bone health?

Bones have many functions in the body such as providing structure, protecting organs, anchor muscles, and store calcium. Sufficient calcium intake and weight bearing physical activity improve bone health and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.

Calcium is an essential mineral needed by the body for healthy bones, teeth, and proper function of the heart, muscles, and nerves. Good sources of calcium include:

•    Dairy products, such as milk, cheese, and yogurt (choose low-fat dairy products)
•    Dark green leafy vegetables such as bok choy and broccoli
•    Calcium fortified foods such as orange juice, cereal, bread, soy beverages and tofu products
•    Nuts, particularly almonds

Recommended amount of calcium for adults age 18 years and older is 1000 mg/day and for adults age 50 years and older is 1200 mg/day.

Regular physical activity has been associated with many positive health benefits including strong bones. Weight-bearing physical activities cause muscles and bones to work hard and build strong bones. Some examples of weight bearing physical activities include:

•    Walking, jogging or running
•    Tennis or racquetball
•    Stair climbing
•    Jumping rope
•    Basketball
•    Dancing
•    Hiking
•    Weightlifting

Adults should engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity daily. 

Healthy Table offers free nutrition information, education, counseling, screening and more. Healthy Table is available for individual sessions, group presentations, health fairs and other health-related activities. We are located in Birck Hall, Room 230. For appointments, call (630) 829-6518 or “like” and message us on Facebook at Healthy Table at Benedictine University. You can also follow us on Twitter at @Healthy_table1.
