Bones provide structure, protect organs, anchors muscles and stores calcium. And childhood and adolescence is the best time to build strong, healthy bones. Bones are in a constant flux. New bone is made and old is broken down. Younger bodies make new bones faster than they break down the old bones. Most of us reach the peak bone mass around 30 years of age. After 30, the bone mass gain is slower than bone loss. The higher the peak bone mass the less you’re prone to osteoporosis as you age.
Factors that affect bone health
Calcium in diet
Tobacco & alcohol use
The bone density test is used to determine the rate of bone loss. This information helps doctors decide if you need medication to slow bone loss. Homeopathy is a working alternative when the best diet and lifestyle efforts fail and you’re tempted to fall back on supplements. These supplements are known to cause increased fractures and consume more energy to digest and assimilate.Contact us for more information.
