It wasn’t until I took a college anatomy class that I learned that bones continue to strengthen until around age 30. At this time our bones peak with strength and are the most dense. Afterwards, bone health changes and can weaken with wear over time. This is natural and to be expected, especially for women that are prone to more bone loss due to menstrual cycles, childbearing, and menopause. Mature adults can slow bone loss with exercise, a healthy diet, moderate sunshine time, and avoiding caffeine which leaches calcium from bone. Osteoporosis is one condition that many people, especially women, fear and are concerned about. By eating a healthy diet and practicing a healthy lifestyle this condition is avoidable. Get the facts and learn more about bone building.
