The #1 Best Drink for Preventing Bone Loss
We consulted medical expert Amy Goodson, MS, RD, CSSD, LD, on the number one drink to sip on for preventing bone loss.Human bones are constantly undergoing a regenerative process, by reabsorbing old bone and creating new. As a result, at any given moment our skeletal makeup is a healthy mix of old and new bones—about every 10 years, our entire skeleton is replaced. Bone loss occurs, however, when that mix becomes imbalanced. When more old bone is reabsorbed than new bone is created, our bodies become more at risk for fractures and breaks even when doing seemingly simple tasks.
Taking the title for the best soft drink is Pepsi Mango. Pepsi says that this carbonated beverage has a splash of mango juice and is also recommended to be served over ice with a twist of lemon or lime. The product description also suggests shoppers try the drink with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you're looking for a classic treat! A 12 pack of these 12-ounce cans retails for $5.79 at Target.
