World Osteoporosis Day (WOD), organized by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), takes place every year on October 20 to emphasize the importance of bone health. This year’s theme, Love Your Bones: Protect Your Future, is focused on preventative methods and the importance of early action to protect bone and muscle health.
World Osteoporosis Day Is October 20th
Prunes are emerging as a surprising fruit that can have a positive impact on bone health. Not only do prunes contain a variety of nutrients that play a role in bone building, structure, maintenance and breakdown – like vitamin K, phosphorus, boron and potassium – but research continues to show that prunes help support healthy bones. Sunsweet Growers Inc. is a proud supporter of WOD and incorporating bone-building habits – like eating a daily serving of prunes (4-5 prunes) – into a regular lifestyle routine.
