Bones are an indispensable part of our body, which are the basis of muscles. Strong bones are significant for a healthy body. Lack of calcium and vitamin D in the body is the leading cause of bone weakness. But due to some of our habits, our bones are also weak. Let's know about those habits-

  • Excess Smoking - If you are addicted to smoking, then quit your habits. These habits of yours can make your body bones weak. Excess consumption of tobacco reduces the density of your bones.
  • Exessive salt- Your bones also become weak due to consumption of too much salt. The reason for this is the sodium present in salt. Excess of sodium in the body slowly makes your bones hollow.
