Taking care of your bone strength can make a big difference in your overall health and wellbeing, particularly as you age. In 2005, approximately 10 million people in the U.S. suffered from osteoporosis, resulting in about 2 million bone fractures. Osteoporosis affects about 50% of women and 25% of men over 50. Most of these cases, however, could have been avoided with proper nutrition and supplementation. Ensuring that your bones receive all the necessary nutrients so that they maintain their strength is critical in the long run.
