Answered on June 20, 2014
Created June 20, 2014 at 2:06 PM

Hi everyone, I am a runner and I spend more time not running then running as always injured. I had an MRI and am found to have osteopenia which means I have low bone density but not so low as to have osteoporosis. Being paleo how can I get my bone density up? What can I eat? What exercises can I do to build it up (without weights please) and what supplements can help? Many thanks :)

Thats great I love sardine I just eat them right out the can. What about soft bones in salmon tins too? I could eat both those things all day long. I thought being a runner and a walker would be enough lol. I have just bought a cycle to be delivered tomorrow I will do some cycling. Infact I might try doing badminton every other week too. Thanks.

I started taking AlgaeCal and Strontium when I was diagnosed with osteoporosis this year. It's supposed to reverse osteoporosis so I take it daily. I am hoping my next bone density can is improved. I only started it in February so I'm sure it can take a while to rebuild my bones. I'm young (24) and heard that you still build bone up until you are 30.

et al… It's a risk of the sport.

Weight train, get enough protein, calcum/cofactors, total energy.

Calcium hydroxyapatite is the best Supplement for bone density. 2 easy sources are below (1 food source, 1 supplement):

  1. Jarrow's bone up supplement.
  2. Sardine bones.
Review some of my past questions for medical journal articles speaking to the efficacy of calcium hydroxyapatite over other sources of calcium for bone density. That being said, exercise is probably the best bone density promoter available.
