Most people have suffered at least one broken bone in their life. This is a completely normal occurrence and fractured bones are mostly caused by accidental falls, sports injuries or similar events.

After seeking medical assistance, one should pay great attention to the healing process and implementing certain natural remedies that will help your bones heal faster. These are some of the foods that will aid in the bone healing process:

Children

As children are quite active, they suffer broken bones quite a lot. But the good thing about kids is that their bodies are still young and resistant so the healing process does not take too long. The key is in providing them with plenty of vitamin D, protein and anti-inflammatory nutrients.

The best way to get a suitable amount of these compounds is providing them with calcium rich smoothies, milk and yogurts but also fresh fruits and veggies which are loaded with various vitamins and nutrients like manganese, beta carotene and selenium that can help with the healing process.

Non dairy sources of calcium include leafy greens, broccoli, seaweed, salmon, figs, oranges, sardines and edamame.

Adolescents

People in their adolescent years are most resistant to fractured bones than in any other period of life. Because of this, when suffering from broken bones, adolescents are encouraged to eat a balanced diet, including dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt as they are filled with calcium and vitamin D, which are crucial for building strong bones.It is important to remind them not to abstain from all physical activity as it will help with the blood circulation, which is also an important factor of the healing process.

Adults and Elderly People

Beside children, elderly people suffer most fractures. As we get older, our bodies tend to lose the ability to heal properly. Maintaining a healthy diet rich in vitamins K, C and D, and also eating foods packed with clean lean protein and zinc are the first steps towards success.

As adults we need to pay more attention to nutrition. This means avoiding certain unhealthy habits such as alcohol, caffeine, and sugary goods, but also refined foods, as it could greatly contribute to the complete healing process. It is often recommended that older people wear supporting equipment which can help in the process of healing.

Most of the time you cannot predict a bone fracture. But what you can do is to maintain a healthy lifestyle consisting of a balanced diet and a healthy dose of exercise. This way you are nurturing your overall health, improving your bone density and even preventing certain conditions like osteoporosis in the distant future.
