Our bones can be seen as a storage of our body’s mineral resources. Whenever our body is in need of certain minerals such as calcium, our bones release them into the blood. When our body needs more of those minerals than our bones have in stock, the bone density decreases and bone illnesses like osteoporosis can develop. Including specific herbs in your diet can help the body to store more of those essential minerals and as a result make your bones stronger, healthier and more flexible. While some herbs are a natural resource of minerals, others can stimulate the body to produce certain hormones to absorb these minerals from your diet
Besides providing minerals, some herbs like mountain arnica can also be used to accelerate the healing process after a bone fracture, which is widely used in traditional medicine.
