Many nutrients, such as calcium, vitamin D, protein, magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium, play a key role in bone health. If you eat a healthy diet (with lots of fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and lean proteins), you’ll get enough of most nutrients needed to keep your bones healthy and functioning well.
Join Rothman Orthopaedics’ Dr. Jason Epstein and Allison Harrell, Registered Dietitian and Culinary Medicine Specialist, to learn more about how to keep your bones strong and taste delicious food to support your bone health.
