How Important Bone Health is?


Andrea Fernandes

Bones are made up of a framework of a protein called collagen, along with a mineral called calcium phosphate and that makes the framework hard and strong. Bones store calcium and release some into the bloodstream when it is needed by other parts of the body.

The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for adults is around 600 milligrams (mg) of calcium a day. The body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium. Worthy sources of vitamin D include oily fish (tuna and sardines), egg yolks, and fortified milk. Sunlight also contributes to the production of Vitamin D in the body. Bone Health is an integral part of everyone's nutritional routine.

Bones undergo changes continuously, wherein new bones are made and the old ones are broken down. When an individual is young, the rate of bone formation is higher than its breakdown. At around the age of 30, most individuals reach their peak bone mass. After that, the body loses slightly more mass than one can gain. One of the most important steps to maintain good bone health is by preventing or slowing down bone loss. Women are at greater risk of osteoporosis, as women have less bone tissue than men. Osteoporosis is a disease that makes the bones become brittle thereby leading to a higher risk of breaks as compared to normal bones. Osteoporosis occurs when the bones lose minerals, such as calcium, more quickly than the body can replace them, thereby causing a loss of bone thickness. It most often occurs in women after menopause, and in men of older age.

The main bone forming mineral is Calcium and 99% of the body's calcium resides in the skeleton. Dietary sources of calcium have to be included in the diet daily. Vitamin D works in coordination with calcium to reduce the risk of osteoporosis. It promotes the intestinal absorption of calcium and helps direct how calcium is incorporated into bone. Vitamin D also facilitates the transfer of calcium from the blood and other extracellular fluids to the surface of bones, where it makes them stronger and less likely to break. Vitamin D helps the body absorb are trace elements that are essential for bone metabolisms like zinc and manganese as well.
