The importance of Bone Health as we age
Strong Bones has been created to help maintain bone health. It is a tailored blend of 11 joint care ingredients including calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K as well as additional bone relevant ingredients which are designed to support optimum health in your bone structure.
Bones are living tissue that includes the combination of bone, nerves, cartilage and connective tissues, with blood vessels supplying important nutrients to the bones.
Only around 65% of bone is actually composed of hard mineral substances, with the rest being organic tissue providing extra strength, durability and flexibility. Collagen is a key protein which is also present in bones, holding the calcium structure together, rather likes bricks and mortar.
By the time we reach 30, our bones have reached peak bone strength and mass, with post 40 being the start of the bone mass decline. This is significantly speeded up in post-menopausal women, though men do not escape this bone loss with age.
In younger adults resorption (loss) and formation of bone is equal but as we age, the process of bone resorption sets in, resulting in a loss of bone density.
Dietary calcium is needed to ensure healthy bone is built. Failure to get enough calcium can result in severe bone loss with the result being osteoporosis. This can of course then lead to fractures.
It is important to ensure that both calcium and vitamin D intake is at least as much as the recommended intake, though many scientists will also argue that an even higher dose of these nutrients is essential as we age. This is due to the fact that vitamin D synthesis is typically less efficient as we age. Don't forget, much of our vitamin D is synthesised in our skin as a result of sunlight, something that we typically don’t get enough of.
Another key nutrient that is often forgotten about is vitamin K, which also plays a key role in the formation of bone and there is growing evidence that diets rich in vitamin K could play a role in increasing bone density in people with osteoporosis, which in turn has been shown in some studies to reduce fractures too.
