I have the best scientific answers for you. Science proves that Calcium and proteins are vital in making our bones and joints very strong. Again, the amount of iron in our body helps to create blood and stamina to the optimum. So, my authentic recomendation for you is:

(1) Do eat foods like banana, green leafy vegetables because these foods contain a big amount of iron that help create blood and stamina in us.

(2) Do take milk and animal protein foods because they help us in repairing bones in our body and thereby strengthening our joints.
