Osteoporosis 3 Nutrition – Calcium Rich Food

In the Nutrition for Osteoporosis article about clean eating for healthy bones we found out that eating healthy, nutrient dense vegetables, animal protein, non-gluten whole grains, nuts and seeds allows our body chemistry to balance so we can assimilate calcium into our bones. But if we eat the standard American diet which upsets body chemistry we can take lots of calcium and it will never get into the bones because it gets excreted through the bowel or the urine or put where it’s not supposed to be causing arthritis, bursitis and other abnormal calcification processes in the body.


To learn how to eat the foods that allow your body chemistry to stay in balance grab your copy of Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook. It teaches you how to create colorful, delicious and highly nutritious meals. If you have your copy available turn to page 14 to take a look at the class A foods. You will see the list of colorful vegetables. Let’s highlight the vegetables that are high in calcium:

Now let me introduce you to Vivian Goldschmidt, founder of  SaveOurBones.com. Alarmed when told that she had osteoporosis at age 50 years old she went to work finding out what she could do to reverse it. And she has uncovered some amazing things. I especially enjoyed her article recently which surprised even me. Here is how it starts:


“A reader challenged me the other day to come up with one everyday food that will improve her calcium absorption and bone health. My answer surprised her since the food I suggested is so common that it is often overlooked. I decided to share the wealth and write an article about this bone-smart food so that you don’t miss out. And believe it or not, that food is… the banana! You see, bananas help your body to absorb calcium and other vital nutrients that promote healthy bones. Here’s how:

This amazing tropical fruit is extremely rich in a compound called fructooligosaccharides, which nourishes the bacteria (some bacteria in your body is very beneficial) in your colon, allowing for an increase in the production of digestive enzymes and vitamins that help you absorb important bone-strengthening nutrients, such as calcium and magnesium.”

You might want to get acquainted with Vivian too because she has a wealth of other information on her website and a report called The Natural Bone Building Handbook which you can download without charge.


And that’s just the very beginning of tips and important information that you will find on SaveOurBones.com. She can help you fine tune your healthy eating plan for osteoporosis also.
