Good evening Dede Kann, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Nutrition during the healing process after a fracture is one aspect that must also be considered to help speed up the healing process, where the best way is to provide adequate and balanced nutrition for your daily intake.
Nutrients that have an important role in the healing process include:
Protein - where almost half the bones are formed by this substance so that an adequate supply of protein during the healing process will be very helpful in the process of connecting broken bones. You can get this protein intake from various food sources such as red meat, fish, milk, cheese, beans, and processed soybeans (tofu, tempeh)
Calcium - this substance also forms the majority of bones in the body, so that adequate calcium intake during the healing process can be very helpful in repairing broken bones. Rich sources of this substance include milk, dairy products, green vegetables, beans, tuna, and cereals
Vitamin D - This vitamin plays an important role in the process of bone formation, including in the process of healing broken bones. Sources of this vitamin can be obtained from egg yolks, milk, salmon, sardines, and yogurt
Vitamin C - can be obtained from citrus fruits (oranges, lemons), kiwifruit, berries, tomatoes, chilies, potatoes and green vegetables
Iron - obtained from red meat, fish oil, eggs, green vegetables, and various processed wheat
Potassium - can be obtained from bananas, orange juice, potatoes, beans, fish, red meat, and milk.
Eat a variety of diverse food sources and also have a variety of ingredients needed as described above.
Avoid alcohol consumption, foods that are high in salt and also drinks that contain caffeine because these three foods / drinks can slow down the healing process.
I hope this helps.
