Building strong bones like Wolverine

Hello Geekdom,

It is your Geek Fitness Guru wanting to throw in some great facts today.

I notice people love their favorite mutant Logan aka “Wolverine” but not that he is tough and has great healing factor (I wish I had that after an intense workout which always come in handy). But what I’m talking about is his Adamantium Skeleton.

Never let things stop you from reaching those dreams because it can come true.  All it takes is the right protein intake.

  • Calcium makes up a major part of your bones and helps keep them strong.
  • Vitamin D enables your body to absorb calcium

Calcium Intake

  • Milk
  • Yogurt and Cheese
  • Sardines
  • Greens
  • Soy Foods

Vitamin D

  • Sunshine – sunshine is not a food. But the body produces vitamin D in response to sunlight. Without vitamin D, our body cannot properly absorb the calcium in foods.
  • Salmon – Salmon and other types of fatty fish offer an array of bone-boosting nutrients. They contain calcium as well as vitamin D, which assists in calcium absorption. They’re also high in omega-3 fatty acids. Fish oil supplements have been shown to reduce bone loss.

Main important fact “Weight-Bearing Exercise”

To get the most out of your bone-boosting diet, you’ll want to do regular weight-bearing exercise. This includes any activity that uses the weight of your body or outside weights to stress the bones and muscles. The result is that your body lays down more bone material, and your bones become denser. Brisk walking, dancing, tennis, and yoga have all been shown to benefit your bones.
