      Fruits, Veggies & Bone Health
      A new study reveals that eating fruits and vegetables can boost bone health by reducing calcium loss. The
      body’s acid-alkali balance plays a significant role in bone health. While fruits and vegetables are alkaline
      foods, diets high in animal products, soda beverages, and most junk and processed foods are highly acidifying.
      The study, conducted by researchers from Tufts University and Northeastern University, examined 171 men and women aged
      50 and above. Researchers split participants into groups, giving them supplements of varying pH levels and subsequently
      analyzed bone health. Participants who consumed bicarbonate supplements (alkali compounds) experienced significant
      reductions in calcium loss through the bones.
      "When fruits and vegetables are metabolized they add bicarbonate, an alkaline compound, to the body,” says
      Dr. Dawson-Hughes. “Our study found that bicarbonate had a favorable effect on bone resorption and calcium
      excretion. This suggests that increasing the alkali content of the diet may attenuate bone loss in healthy older
