The study examined the quantitative computed tomography (QCT) measures of bone and related it to dairy intake in individual participants. These measures provided information on the bone geometry and compartment-specific bone density, both of which are important determining factors of bone strength. A positive trend was seen in the relationship between dairy consumption and bine strength, and this remained independent of the levels of vitamin D serum in the body.
If you’re looking to increase bone strength, here are some other foods that may help:
1. Leafy Veggies
Veggies like spinach and kale are great for bone strength.
2. Soya Beans
Soya beans and foods made from them are great dairy-free alternatives to load up on all the calcium that your bones need.
3. Egg Yolks
Egg yolks, which often get thrown out because of cholesterol fears, are great sources of vitamin D, which is essential for the body.
4. Orange Juice
Orange juice has vitamin D for bone health.
Nuts are also great sources of calcium and are healthy snacking options too.
