Remember you need 3 things for bone health:
- Calcium – the building block
- Vitamin D – the key to calcium absorption and strong muscles
- Exercise – to optimise bone mass and build muscle strength as studies show that bones respond to weight bearing and resistance exercise
Osteoporosis is a condition that causes bones to become more porous, gradually making them weaker, more brittle and likely to break. 1 in 2 women and 1 in 3 men over the age of 60 will develop a bone fracture due to osteoporosis.
