Healthy bones: Nutrition for Postmenopausal Women. Vital to healthy bones, calcium and fat-soluble vitamins (like D and K2) are in the micronutrient category. Micronutrients, as you may recall from a recent post in this series, are vital to healthy development, disease prevention & well-being.
Healthy bones rely, in part, on these micronutrients, especially as your estrogen levels decline. It’s important to know that estrogen is protective of bones, so talk with your nutritionist about calcium and fat-soluble vitamins.
Sources of calcium include dairy products and dark leafy greens. Sources of fat-soluble vitamins include pasture-raised liver, grass-fed red meats, and cod liver oil.
