"Calcium for strength." - That's what I always say. - And, "Avoid salt and salty food!" - What do you always say?...(o:

When bones are weak and fragile, we tend to think of calcium and of drugs to help with the problem, but what about cutting down on salt? - Salt can deplete your body of calcium and so make you weaker.

See this extremely interesting information: World Action on Salt and Health (WASH)

Look at this amazing quotation from the website:

"It was calculated that a modest reduction in salt intake from 10g to 5g would have the same effect on hip bone density as an increase in calcium intake of 1000mg, a difficult amount to achieve without resorting to supplements."

And this:

"Diuretics, through a reduction in extra cellular volume, reduce calcium excretion leading to a positive calcium balance, increase bone density and reduce bone fractures."

Don't forget to make sure you have enough vitamin D too, because you need vitamin D to metabolise the calcium.
