Against osteoporosis, 5 nutrients and foods to benefit it

Against osteoporosis, 5 nutrients and foods to benefit it

Foods rich in omega 3

Omega 3 helps fight inflammation. The problem is that the human body does not produce it naturally. You'll find it in rapeseed, soybean, and flaxseed oils, and fatty fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines, and more.

Foods rich in vitamin D

It is necessary for healthy bones and cartilage. The Swiss League Against Rheumatism explains this “People who take enough vitamin D suffer less from osteoporosis in the knee or hip.” If the sun is the main source of vitamin D, you will find it – again – in fatty fish, offal (especially liver), eggs, butter, and dairy products.

Foods rich in fiber

Its consumption also helps maintain a healthy weight and fight inflammatory phenomena. Thus, various studies have highlighted their interest in the prevention and management of knee osteoarthritis. Switch to fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Focus on broccoli

Broccoli is especially noteworthy. In addition to the presence of vitamins C and K, which strengthen bones, these vegetables contain sulforaphane, a compound that – according to various laboratory studies – slows the development of osteoarthritis.

Green tea

Green tea is full of polyphenols called catechins, which are involved in controlling inflammation. Patient testimonials show a reduction in pain during treatment of knee osteoarthritis.
