It’s never too early to invest in your good skeletal health. The main goal of prevention is to achieve the greatest possible ‘top bone mass “(CFA).

The more bone stock a person has, he/she also has greater loss margins and thus reduced risk of fractures.

At older ages, the bone mass is maintained by a process called bone remodeling. The human skeleton is renewed constantly being in a dynamic equilibrium. Any factor affecting bone resorption or bone formation and leads to a rapid loss of bone tissue makes bones more fragile.

Lifestyle & diet also influence skeletal health.
