Support Your Gut
Many people aren’t aware of how important the gut is to your bone health and the health of the rest of your body. We recommend eating foods with prebiotics and probiotics, these can improve the health of your gut, allowing your food and nutrients to be properly digested and absorbed into the body. Calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D and Vitamin K are all extremely important for bone health.
Limit Stomach Acid Reducing Medications
Did you know that certain medications such as proton-pump inhibitors and heartburn medications can actually decrease the absorption of calcium? Due to the decrease in stomach acid, the body cannot properly breakdown, digest and absorb the foods we eat. If you suffer from chronic heartburn, indigestion, etc. schedule an appointment with our Mesa nurse practitioner today, we would be happy to help.
Improve Your Diet
As mentioned above, there are various vitamins, nutrients and minerals that are vital to bone health. Vitamin K, Vitamin D, Calcium and Magnesium should all be increased through diet and/or supplementation. It is important to determine if you have any deficiencies of these vitamins so that they can be properly addressed. Schedule an appointment with Rose Canyon Health & Wellness for vitamin deficiency testing in Mesa, Arizona.
