Bone Health

As we age, our bones become less dense. For women this is particularly true after menopause, as our bodies produce less of the hormone oestrogen. This increases the risk of developing conditions such as osteoporosis, where bones become brittle and are more prone to break.

While loss of bone density is an inevitable part of aging, there are a number of different ways to manage your bone health, including the importance of prevention of bone loss through diet and a healthy lifestyle.
