3 Natural Ways to build healthy Bones and Prevent Osteoporosis

When the vertebrae weaken due to osteoporosis, they gradually become wedge-shaped, resulting in the "dowager's hump," a prominent curve in the upper back. After that, neither starch nor willpower will be able to help you straighten your spine.

According to a study published in 2014 in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, osteoporosis is very common, affecting up to 10% of adults over the age of 50. It isn't, however, a necessary part of growing older.

Bones are living structures that are constantly remodeling themselves by adding and subtracting material. Your bone mass reaches its maximum in your third decade of life. Following that, it's a downward spiral, which accelerates in women after menopause as estrogen levels drop.

Men, like women, can develop osteoporosis as they get older, though bone loss begins later in men — around the age of 65 or 70 — than it does in women. Aside from age, having a family history of the disease, being small and thin, smoking, drinking too much alcohol, and being physically inactive are all risk factors.
