Scientists have determined that getting 1,000 milligrams of calcium a day makes bones grow denser. People over 50 should get 1,500 milligrams. Too much protein weakens bones. Eskimos have been found to have 10 to 15% lower bone density than the US average citizen because they eat mostly protein and fat. People on a diet heavy in meat and dairy products (Even with great calcium intake) have weaker bones than people eating soybeans and grains.
Try to avoid sodium as it forces the skeleton to give up calcium.
Sleep no more than eight hours but sleep enough. Get up every day at the same time. Be active during the day.
Avoid alcohol since it disrupts the second half of the night and increases snoring.
Keep room temperature at 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit.
No coffee or tea after six PM because they are caffeinated beverages. Sleep depravation (less than eight hours straight sleep) have be found to cause impaired psychological performance: loss of attention, memory, concentration, judgment, motivation and mood stability. It has been found that sleep depravation can impair psychomotor functioning: reaction time, reduced capacity for strenuous physical activity and performance. It could also impair physiological functioning: hypoxia or loss of oxygen, heart rate changes, alteration of hormone levels and suppression of immune function.
So, sleep well and watch out your calcium intake!
