Build Stronger Bones
November 21, 2012
Hosted by Lorna Vanderhaeghe, M.Sc.
Our bones are in a constant state of regeneration as bone is being broken down and rebuilt. Hormones and our liver, kidneys and immune system all work together to ensure that bone is maintained. Over time a gradual decrease in bone mass causes the bones to become porous, brittle and fragile, increasing the risk of fracture. Bones of the hip, spine, wrists and ribs are the most common fracture sites. Osteoporosis affects almost 30 million people; over 80 percent of those are women. One in four women has osteoporosis and one in eight men. Lorna discusses the nutrients to keep your bones strong for years to come.
