Apples and Boron for Osteoporosis

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition

Osteoporosis is a very real concern for many women especially past menopause. I know none of us want to end up with broken hips or any other broken bones for that matter. We need several things to have strong bones. From the nutritional perspective we need calcium and vitamin D. Most of us know where we can get that, but how about boron. Boron activates vitamins and minerals necessary for the formation of healthy bones. You need between 3 and 5 mg of boron a day to help treat osteoporosis. Let’s just prevent it by adding an apple, or some grapes, nuts, peaches, or pears. Any one of these foods are also good for a “grab and go”.

You also benefit your bones from exercise. Bone is living tissue when it is in your living body and it responds to exercise. You want to make sure you have strength training and weight bearing exercises as part of your lifestyle.

I feel stronger already armed with this information!



Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
