(Before It's News)


Bone fractures are generally caused by injury, such as a fall, car accident, or sports injury, however, bone fractures can also be caused by osteoporosis.

If you have a bone fracture, you must get immediate medical attention and keep the fracture immobilized until you can get help.

After the fracture has been immobilized, you can then begin natural remedies to help heal broken bones fast.

Top Foods to Heal Broken Bones

High calcium foods – The major mineral in bones is calcium, so try to include foods high in this important mineral such as sea vegetables, green leafy vegetables, salmon, sardines with bones, and unsweetened cultured dairy like yogurt, kefir, and amasai.

Vitamin K foods – Kale, broccoli, spinach, and other greens are high in vitamin K1, and raw dairy products like cheese and kefir are high in vitamin K2 which is essential for blood clotting and bone formation.

Clean lean protein – The body cannot rebuild lost tissue without protein. Try to get at least 4-5 oz per meal of organic, lean protein such as wild-caught fish or grass-fed beef.
Vitamin C – Is essential for manufacturing collagen an essential component of skin and tissues. Increase your intake of vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables such as citrus fruits, bell peppers, strawberries, and tomatoes.

Zinc – The chemical reactions necessary to rebuild the bone requires zinc. To increase your intake of zinc, add beef, pumpkin seeds, and spinach to your diet.

Foods that Weaken Bones

Alcohol –  Promotes bone loss and increases inflammation which does not promote healing.

Salt – Sodium removes calcium from the bones. Try to limit your salt intake to less than 1500 mg (less than ½ tsp) per day.

Sugar and refined grains – Sugar and refined grains promote bone loss and provide very few nutrients for wound healing.

Cola and other sugar sweetened beverages – The phosphorus content of cola can actually remove calcium from bones.

Caffeine – Caffeinated beverages contain compounds that can bind to calcium, preventing calcium from being absorbed and therefore limits healing.
