Q: How to cool off and strengthen your bones at the same time? A: Eat a cold, calcium-rich snack! Osteoporosis affects about 10 million people, mostly women, nationwide.
Young women should take about 1,000 milligrams of calcium and 400-600 IU of vitamin D every day (postmenopausal women need even more). This is a great excuse to eat cool, dairy snacks. Try blending yogurt and frozen fruit for a smoothie, or freezing it into an ice pop. How’s that for a tasty cool down?
