I can feel it in my bones!

Both men and women are susceptible to osteoporosis, kilo for kilo our bones are stronger than concrete. Our bones are alive and are reshaped and rebuilt daily according to the mechanical stress, and biochemistry of the body. Osteoporosis is a condition where bones lose strength and density and become brittle. ½ a gram of calcium is absorbed into, or released from our skeleton daily. We need a positive balance of calcium daily to maintain a healthy bone bank. Calcium will diminish from the body if our daily supply of calcium and other cofactors required for calcium absorption, are inadequate.
