Soy Protein
To give your bone mineral density a protein boost, try incorporating high-quality soy foods like soybeans, tofu, tempeh, natto (fermented soybeans), soy nuts, soy flour, soy cheese, enriched/fortified soy milk, soy yogurt, and soy crisps into your diet a few times each week. Some studies suggest that soy foods may also help slow bone loss and prevent fractures.
