Lets maintain our bones strong

Our bones continue develops until end of adolescence.
Bones reach the maximum length at age 20 but continue build strength and density until age 30. The bone mass normally achieved between ages 25-35 years of age.
At age of 39 years , one already lost 20 % of his/her bone mass. Give it a few more years and another 12 percent goes.
The peak loss occurs during post menopausal stage making women more and more susceptible to osteoporosis.

Workout to build bones
Regular exercises that put mild pressure on the bones can maintain bones strength. It must be done at least 45 minutes 3 times a week. Muscle stretching exercise can helps to attract calcium into your bones and aid absorption specially when a women have already menopaused.
