Ask A Nutritionist: What Nutrients Help Improve Bone Health?

By: Megan Holdaway, RDN

  • 1 Minute Read   

In this episode of Ask a Nutritionist, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Megan Holdaway answers the question, "What nutrients help improve bone health?" 

Focusing on bone health at all stages of the life span is critical to ensuring good health and mobility. Childhood and adolescence are especially important periods for building peak bone mass—the largest amount of bone tissue a person will ever have—that will be use through the rest of their life. 

Consuming a healthy eating pattern that includes three servings of calcium-rich foods like milk, cheese and yogurt each day can help support healthier bones. They also contain vitamin D, which helps prevent the softening of bones like rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Megan also talks about how to optimize your diet quality, identifying foods and nutrients that play a role in supporting overall bone health.
