Supplements for Strong Bones & Joints

Calcium is an essential component of maintaining strong bones as you age. It’s the building block of bone health, and it is the most abundant mineral in the body. Calcium makes up a significant portion of your bones and teeth. The best supplements for strong bones and joints are calcium and Vitamin D.

Here is everything you need to know about supplements for strong bones and joints:

Why You Need A Calcium Supplement

Around the age of 30, your body builds up peak bone mass. Your bone production naturally begins to slow down after you turn 30, which can cause an overall loss of bone for some people. 

Calcium helps combat this, not just for people over 30 but also for younger adults as well. By paying attention to calcium intake in your 20s, you can get a head start on building up calcium reserves that your body will utilize well into the future. Calcium and Vitamin D is great for all ages, from kids to senior citizens. Building and maintaining healthy bones is important regardless of your age or gender. 

Vitamin D is calcium’s essential companion. It plays a crucial role in bone health by allowing calcium to be sufficiently absorbed in the gut and used by the body. That’s why we created FitFormula’s Calcium + Vitamin D supplement to make it easy to get both.

The Best Way To Take Supplements for Strong Bones & Joints

For best compliance, it is recommended to take calcium in supplement form and look for a powdered supplement combined with Vitamin D for optimal absorption. 

Vitamin D is different. It does not occur naturally in many foods. The best source of Vitamin D is through direct sun exposure during the brightest part of the day. Unfortunately, for a number of reasons, this isn’t possible for most people. For these reasons, Vitamin D supplementation is highly recommended.  

Other Ways You Can Keep Your Bones and Joints Healthy

Eat your greens!  Dark greens such as kale, cabbage, and turnip are high in iron and very high in calcium. Try mixing your greens with lean, white meat or fatty fish for a hearty but healthy meal that will support your bones. 

You can also exercise regularly. Exercise is essential to enhance posture, flexibility, balance, and overall movement for anyone wanting to keep your bones strong. Even light exercise such as walking and stair-stepping can help reduce the risk of hip fractures while keeping you fit and active.
