Bones & Joints 

Posted January 30th, 2024

Healthy bones do wonders for your body!1 They keep you standing upright and protect your organs 1,2 Your joints also do an incredible job of holding all your bones together and allow us to move and stay flexible! 3

Keeping your bones and joints strong

A holistic approach to healthy living is one of the best ways to maintain healthy bones and joints.1 Bones gradually lose their density as you get older, but there are some lifestyle changes you can make to help your bones and joints remain strong and healthy.4
Eating a balanced and nutritious diet can help you get the nutrients you need to keep your joints and bones healthy.5 For example, dairy foods rich in calcium such as yoghurt and cheese can help your bones maintain their strength4,6
Keeping active is another way that can help your bones and joints stay strong. The more you use your bones, the stronger they will get!4

Feed your joints and bones

Vitamin D

Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium so it can be delivered to your bones – eggs, saltwater fish and liver are a great source of vitamin D.5 Your body can also make its own vitamin D if you just spend a little bit of time in the sun every day.4


Devour some dairy

Calcium is important for healthy bones, and dairy foods like milk, cheese and yoghurt are full of it4,6


Eat your greens

The health benefits of leafy greens and vegetables are already well known, but these foods also have high levels of vitamin K, which is known to keep bones strong5


Reduce salt intake

Salt can cause your body to lose calcium faster than usual – try to limit your daily salt intake, don’t add it to your food and check the labels when shopping to make sure what you buy has less than 120mg of sodium per 100g4
