It is no surprise that vitamin D and calcium are responsible for warding off osteoporosis. However, not too many of us are aware of the fact that bone loss can be a result of our daily diet. In today's hectic society a lot of us are way too busy to pay attention to what we eat and the effects that our diet has on our bodies.

We all have gotten so used to popping a multivitamin every morning that we simply don't care about any other valuable means of nutrition.

However, when it comes down to bone health, the diet we consume plays a very crucial role.

One of the ingredients which present a threat to our bones is salt. A recent study has proven that postmenopausal women with a diet rich in salt lose more bone minerals than other women of the same age.
