The body reaches its peak bone mass at around age 30, so it is important for both men and women to build as much bone mass as possible before this age. After this, the rate of bone loss begins to exceed that of bone building, which results in gradual net bone loss over time. Poor nutrition in early life (before this peak) can reduce the levels of bone mass at the peak, thus increasing the risk of developing osteoporosis later on in life.
Strong, healthy bones are essential for an active lifestyle; but without the right nutrients in the right amounts, bones can end up growing weaker and losing density. Over time, this can result in osteoporosis – a disease in which bones become porous and brittle, breaking more easily, and taking longer to heal if damaged. Osteoporosis is increasingly common, affecting as many as 1 in 2 NZ women and nearly 1 in 3 NZ men over 60.1 The best way to prevent it is to start building bone density as early possible, by ensuring sufficient calcium and Vitamin D intake, and regular weight bearing exercise to strengthen bones. After menopause, bone mass can decline quite significantly due to the lowered levels of oestrogen (bone-protective hormone).
