The Healthy

Eat onions every day for five per cent better bone mineral density in later life, says a study carried out at the University of South Carolina, US.

Eggs are one of the few food sources of bone-boosting vitamin D; researchers say it can also boost your ratio of fast-twitch to slow-twitch muscle fibres.

Red peppers contain nine times the carotene of green peppers: the pigment bolsters bones and could reduce your risk of stress fractures, says Gidus.
