Preventative measures against osteoporosis should be taken through all stages of life.
Our bones support us, allow us to move and protect our brain, heart, and other organs from injury.
It is important that we take steps to develop and maintain our bone health throughout the duration of our lives.
Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.
Bone density changes over time so it is extremely important that we maintain a healthy lifestyle from a young age in order to prevent weakening bones as we age.Learn More
Nutrients play a key role in bone health and we need to ensure that we consume enough of each in order to develop and maintain strong, healthy bones.Learn More
Our bones provide the scaffolding that holds our bodies upright. Healthy bones are made up of a honeycomb structure with tiny holes to keep them light and springy.
When important minerals drop below what is required in the bloodstream, bones are broken down to release these minerals into the body to perform other functions.
Bones that have lost a lot of mineral density have much larger holes as well as thin outer walls, which can then result in weak bones and increase their risk of breaking.
