Keep Your Bones Strong

It's no big secret that as we age, our bones tend to grow a bit more brittle. Here's what the experts say you can do to keep your bones strong:

1. Cut out soda - The acid in those fizzy drinks can diminish bone mass

2. Work out every day - A daily walk can help keep bones strong

3. Get enough calcium - Baby Boomers need up tp 1,2000 miligrams a day

What's With the Increase in Heartburn as We Age?

You used to be able to wolf down hot wings and tequila after midnight. Now you even pass on a chili dog after 6 pm. Why?

Doctors say that over time the enzymes that aid digestion decease over time making it harder to break down food. In addition, taking anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen for joint pain. These substances made the stomach lining more sensitive.

To minimize the problem, experts recommend eating smaller portions and eating more slowly. (Also, try not to eat anything too late in the evening.)

Now, where did we put that habnero sauce?

Bon appétit!

 

 

 

You're as Healthy as You Think
