What Is Bone Loss?
Bones form the structural framework of the human body. Up until the age of 30, bone formation is faster than bone loss, which causes the skeleton to grow both in size and density, resulting in an overall increase in bone mass. However, this renewal process declines in women after the age of 301 resulting in several bone health issues.

Osteoporosis, meaning “porous bones,” is a medical condition associated with the weakening of bones. Often referred to as a silent disease, osteoporosis can go undetected until a fracture occurs.
