A fair amount of my patients who have gut issues present with early onset osteoporosis.
Today, I would like to discuss the importance of gut health and dietary composition and specifically the choice of dietary fat in regards to your bone health. To help you all out make healthier dietary choices.
Apart from Calcium rich foods like dairy… Dietary fats containing vitamin D and other nutrients are also important for bone health!
Vitamin A, E and K are also necessary, as are antioxidants and magnesium. All of these nutrients need to be in your diet, and your digestive system needs to be working well so that these nutrients can be absorbed efficiently from the food that you eat and help to build and maintain your bone health.
It is important to be consuming calcium rich foods that come with fats that carry fat soluble vitamins needed for calcium absorption. Forget about following a low fat diet! This is not bone health friendly! Moderation is a key.
Goods fats that are rich in Vitamins D, A, E and K are: butter, ghee, coconut oil, full dairy fat, and bone broth. Animal meats, organ meats, fish and seafood will also deliver these vitamins. Other fats; Monosaturated and Polysunaturated Omega 3 & 6 will allso be essential, especially for your joint health.
