How do bones stay strong after menopause?

A Answers (1)

  • Added calcium to the diet and bone-strengthening exercises can help bones stay strong and healthy. As women age, it is important to add calcium through dietary changes or supplements. Some calcium-rich foods are dairy products, broccoli- and tofu. Be sure and look at low-fat options so you can continue to manage weight as you age. Weight-bearing exercise such as walking or strength training can help make bones strong and healthy.
