Bones have many functions. They support the body structurally, protect our vital organs, and enable us to move. Also, they provide an environment for bone marrow, where the blood cells are created, and they act as a storage area for minerals, particularly calcium.
Osteoporosis is a bone disease where there is a reduction in bone mineral density. It increases the risk of fractures occurring. Losing bone density is a normal part of aging. We reach peak bone mass between ages 25 and 30, and then slowly begin to start losing bone mass at age 40. For women, reduced levels of estrogen after menopause accelerate bone density loss. Taking the right diet & supplements can help to protect & prevent bone mineral density loss (Osteoporosis).
