Eat foods jam-packed with essential vitamins and minerals to enhance your bone health. Opt for cherries, walnuts, ginger, salmon, oranges, tomatoes, and turmeric that may help reduce inflammation. If there is a deficiency of vitamin D3 and vitamin D12 then do the test to get the exact amount of medication you need to supplement in oral or injectable form.
