Many nutrients and herbs are used to strengthen bones. The most familiar of these is calcium. Dairy products such as milk and cheese have long been a standby as a source of calcium and other necessary minerals. There are other sources of calcium-rich herbs. One of these is oatstraw (Avena Sativa). It has high amounts of herbal calcium, which is an effective bone-building material.

Nettle (Urtica Dioica) is used to strengthen bones because it is rich in organic mineral content. It is often combined with alfalfa (Medicago Sativa) to nourish the skeletal system. Alfalfa is known for the cleansing effect it brings to the body. Red raspberry and peppermint are also mineral-rich herbs that will make a big difference in your bones. Many other herbs can be used along with a well-balanced diet to promote overall good health.

More Ways to Strengthen Bones

Most of the herbs that help with bone strength can be grown in your own back yard or in small pots. You can choose from hundreds of natural herbs and spices and have your supply fresh at hand every day. If you are not sure about the proper time to harvest each one, ask someone with experience. Some herbs can be ineffective if harvested at the wrong time.

Herb teas are very popular for promoting healthy bones. These teas have been blended by the experts in natural supplements and come ready to use. All you have to do is provide the hot water and enjoy. You can let someone else do all of the work and enjoy the benefit of healthy bones just from a relaxing cup of tea.
