  • Prunes. Plant compounds called polyphenols in prunes may repair bone density in postmenopausal women. Enjoy three to nine prunes (fresh plums won’t cut it) a day to get the benefits.
  • Sesame. One tablespoon a day of sesame seeds and sesame paste (aka tahini) provides trace minerals such as magnesium, copper, zinc and manganese that work with calcium to improve bone health.
  • Kale. Leafy greens like kale are loaded with Vitamin K, which helps binds calcium into bones. Aim for three to four servings a week, as Vitamin K isn’t in most multivitamins.
