What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis means 'porous bones' and is a condition where bones lose their density and strength, becoming weak, fragile and brittle. Osteoporosis occurs when bones lose �bone building� minerals such as calcium and other minerals important to bone health, and the body cannot replace these minerals fast enough to keep bones strong. As a result, bones become thinner and less dense, increasing the risk of fracture. Commonly these fractures occur in the wrist, hip or spine.
Why is calcium intake important throughout life?
Calcium plays an essential role in building and maintaining bone. The main mineral in bones is calcium, accounting for approx 67% of bone weight. Bones also act as the body�s reservoir for calcium � when the amount of calcium in your blood falls below a certain level the body draws calcium from the bones. Calcium is used in important functions of the body eg: heart, muscles, blood and nerves. Calcium levels in the body need to be replenished daily by consuming calcium in the diet.
