|1. || Protein || Proteins are needed for maintaining bone strength and for repairing damaged tissues. However, compared to young children, protein needs fall as we get older |
|2. || Calcium || A calcium-rich diet is the most important part of any regimen for the care of bones. Calcium is a mineral that makes bones stay strong. The human body consistently remove small amounts of calcium from our bones and that has to be topped up with Calcium rich foods.

|3. || Vitamin D || Helping the body to absorb the calcium is vitamin D, which also assists in maintaining adequate levels of this mineral in the blood. So we need plenty of vitamin D too. |
|4. || Vitamin C || Also helping the absorption of calcium is vitamin C, which, additionally, strengthens both bones and muscle. Because of its immunity-boosting properties, vitamin C helps in the healing of broken bones too. |
|5. || Vitamin A || vitamin A are cell growth, building immunity, promote healthy skin, and being an antioxidant it neutralizes the action of free radicals in the body, which can cause cellular damage. |
