A “normal” decrease in bone density begins slowly from around 30. For some people, this bone loss intensifies. However, at a certain age, the loss of bone volume becomes more significant than the regeneration that occurs in bone cells. Bones then become porous and more fragile. This is how osteoporosis appears.
Osteoporosis is a silent disease without any apparent symptoms and it is often noticed when a person suffers a fracture for the first time. And then, it is already too late! According to Osteoporosis Canada, at least 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men will suffer a broken bone from osteoporosis during their lifetime. Prevention is, therefore, the key!
Vitamins and Minerals Essential for Bone Health
In addition to adopting a healthy lifestyle, taking supplements can help prevent osteoporosis. Calcium, Boron and Vitamin D3 are among other essential nutrients to ensure the maintenance of bone health and thus prevent osteoporosis.
