This salad is loaded with goodness
to help you reduce the risks of bone degeneration

Recipe for building strong bones by Dr. Claudia Tamas

Pomegranates contain polyphenol antioxidants which aid in bone formation and regeneration, leading to stronger bones and reduced risk of bone degeneration. 

Citrus, along with being an excellent way to improve your immune health, citrus zest has a high amount of easily absorbed calcium, vitamin C, and ascorbic acid content, which are crucial components helping to improve bone health.

Celery is very high in calcium and silicon, helping to regenerate and strengthen damaged bones. It is also high in Vitamin K, which plays an important role in protecting against osteoporosis.
