Healthy levels of iron are critical for muscle strength, energy and good mental function. Iron helps make haemoglobin—the part of our red blood cells that carries oxygen around our body. If your body does not make enough haemoglobin, then this might explain why you feel tired or why you’re not able to do normal daily activities.

Osteoporosis occurs when our bones lose minerals (e.g. calcium) which makes them less dense and more brittle. Affecting over 1 million Australians, it leads to a higher risk of breaks. Regular exercise and a higher calcium and vitamin D intake are all ways to prevent osteoporosis.
Foods rich in calcium (spinach, kale, okra) and vitamin D (cheese, salmon, tuna fish) that help to improve your bone density. It is the intake of both types of food that makes it work. Vitamin D helps to convert calcium into its active form—where it can actually make a difference.
The addition of physical exercise plays an important preventative and treatment role in improving bone density, the type of exercise is critical. To get the most out of your exercise, it must be regular (at least 3 times per week) and progressive.
A progressive exercise program focuses on gradually increasing the amount of weights and the level of difficulty. Weight bearing exercises is done while on your feet. Where you can bear down using your own weight.
While more cardio focused exercises are great for your overall health, it's the weight bearing aspect of the following list that are more effective for bone health:
That is why a GP and a Physio are the perfect team to diagnose and develop a treatment plan. Your treatment team can help you increase your mobility so that you can tackle greater resistance and weight bearing exercises.
For the more elderly population, the team can also improve your mobility with exercises that assist with balance, muscle strength and improve done density to help reduce falls. Improved balance is great for people looking to be more mobile and to experience less discomfort when exercising.
