Produce For Stronger Bones

1 May

Potassium, found in many fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of brittle bones and fractures by slowing the loss of calcium from bone, according to a recent review of 14 studies by researchers at England’s University of Surrey. Most of Americans get just half of the recommended 4,700 milligrams of dietary potassium per day. Boost your intake of high-potassium produce, such as baked potatoes with the skin on (800 milligrams in a medium potato), broccoli (400 per cup), and bananas (450 in a medium one).
