Pineapple contains manganese that is beneficial in preventing and treating osteoporosis. Manganese deficiency has been linked with bone malformation and bone loss, which in turn can cause low bone density and osteoporosis.
- Eat one cup of fresh pineapple chunks daily before a meal. One cup of pineapple provides about 75 percent of the required daily dose of manganese.
- Alternatively, you can drink a cup of pineapple juice daily to prevent osteoporosis.
Coriander is rich in minerals that are valuable in maintaining bone health. Both coriander leaves and seeds are rich in calcium, potassium and manganese along with magnesium and iron. Calcium and manganese play a key role in treating and preventing weak bones. These nutrients also help reduce spinal bone loss in older women.
- Mix two teaspoons of coriander seeds in a cup of hot water. Cover and steep for five to 10 minutes. Strain and add honey. Drink this twice daily.
- Also, include more coriander leaves and seeds in your cooking.
