    Default 4 Herbs That Build Strong Bones

    Thanks to dairy marketing bureaus and their massive marketing budgets, most people think of dairy products to build strong bones. But eating more of these foods may not be the best way to boost your bone health and ward off osteoporosis. When it comes to building strong bones and preventing bone diseases, herbs really shine. Here are my top 4 herbs that build healthy and resilient bones:
    Dandelion

    Dandelion shoots (the stems, leaves, and flowers) are not only rich in the essential bone-building nutrient, calcium, they also contain plentiful amounts of boron, which is critical to strong bones. Dandelion shoots have one of the highest amounts of the mineral boron of almost any food.

    Very informative. The only one of the 4 herbs I knew about was horsetail (silica) for strong bones. Was really surprised to see nettles, as it is also a very good herb for kidney health. You use it in the form of a tea, just as the article recommended for bone health. Love it when one herb actually has multiple benefits.

    I am growing nettles in a large container for soup and tea. I started when I was allowed very few green vegetables (no brassicas at all) and desperate for alternatives. OK now, but I'll be interested to see how they taste. So many 'weeds' have nutritional benefits.

    I do use horsetail and dandelion in season. I have no nettles on my property and wouldn't know where to find them. I surely do have red clover and will incorporate some of that into my diet as well. Thanks for finding this, Julie!

    Yesterday evening, while waiting for the pigs' water tub to fill, I picked a pint of red clover blossoms. I made a cupful into a tea this morning. It was pleasantly mild. That's the sort of thing you have to take it on faith because you're not going to feel any improvement, but while the clover is in bloom I might as well gather blossoms for tea from time to time.
