Our bones become more brittle as we get older.
This increasing the risk of a fracture if we have a fall.
What can we do?
We should carry out weight bearing activities to help strengthen our bones.
Examples of this are:
🌟Resistance Training - using bands -weights- or your own body weight
🌟Nordic walking with poles to give upper body a workout as well as your legs
We also need Calcium to keep our bones strong. We can find this in milk, cheese and yogurts.
We also need Vitamin D, this helps our bodies to absorb calcium.
We can get Vitamin D from certain foods and the sunshine 🌞 (remember to apply sun cream).
