8. Dark green leafy vegetables
Though dark green leafy vegetables are touted as one of the major means for improving one's calcium status.
This one could be tricky because spinach has good amount of calcium but the presence of oxalate prevents the absorption of calcium.
Instead opt for collard greens, mustard greens, methi, amaranth, mustard green and turnip greens for getting enough calcium in the diet.
100gms of black gram dal (urad dal) has around 200mg of calcium. Also soyabean, horsegram, lima beans and lentils can be included in one's daily diet to get the required quota of calcium.
Eggs are a good source of many minerals. Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin d.
11. Physical activity
20-30 mins walking daily helps stop further weakening of bones. Weight bearing exercises such as low impact aerobics, stair climbing, running, skipping helps to strengthen our bones.
12. Calcium fortified foods

13. Omega 3 fatty acids
These can have a positive impact or even prevent serious degenerative illnesses rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.

Deep water fishes like sardines, salmon, tuna and mackerel have good amounts of calcium and other minerals. These fishes when consumed with their bones increase the calcium three folds.

A ganglion is a cystic swelling in continuity with a joint capsule or tendon sheath. It is a degenerative disorder arising from the joint capsule. It is filled with clear, viscous fluid. Ganglia are common on the dorsum of wrist.
They are often painless and resolve spontaneously. Often, only reassurance of the patient is required. Wrist splints relieve the pain. Aspiration and injection are rarely effective. Surgical excision is best avoided as recurrance rate after surgery is quite high.
