Bone health

The human skeletal system contains about 206 bones at adulthood, while at birth there are 270 bones before some fuse together. Which can only imply one thing…..bones never stop growing and fusing. Which is why maintaining proper nutrition, to enhance bone formation, is vital for every step of ones life. Adding whole foods which resemble the shape of the human bone, such as celery and rhubarb, to your diet will benefit your bone health.

Celery

Celery resembles half of a bone because it biologically protects your bones from disease. Celery contains arginine and boron, both prevent osteoporosis. Arganine is an amino acid, which is known as a growth hormone releaser, which helps support the production of collagen as well as the growth of bone-forming cells. The trace mineral boron helps add to bone mineral density, prevents arthritis, enhances testosterone and improves the production of estrogen in menopausal women.

Rhubarb

Rhubarb resembles half of a bone because it biologically protects your bones from disease such as bone cancer.  Rhubarb contains 4 types of Anthraquinone which are:

1. Emodin
2. Aloe-emodin
3. Rhein
4. Physion

All four Anthraquinones work together to prevent or fight cancer cells in bones, when you add a moderate amount of rhubarb to your weekly diet. Avoid consuming too much rhubarb because that could lead to other medical issues.
