Bone is living tissue. Bone mass increases throughout growth until our early twenties, when peak bone mass is achieved. But, from the age of about 40 years, bone loss exceeds bone formation and bone mass gradually decreases.
Bone formation and bone resorption are influenced by physical activity and diet. An inactive lifestyle leads to bone wastage and excessive loss of bone tissue leads to osteoporosis, a condition that is characterised by bone fragility and increased risk of fractures.
How can joint and bone help women through the menopause?
The hormonal changes of peri-menopause and menopause when oestrogen levels fall triggers a loss of minerals in bone tissue. Adding extra support at this time targeted for bone and joint health can help reduce the risk of the development of osteoporosis . Joint support supplements generally contain vitamin D and calcium, a good combination for healthy bones.
In men, the gradual decline in sex hormones can also lead to bone weakness but this often happens later in life.
