Description The role of nutrition and exercise in bone mass development
Creation Date 01 September 2000
Doc type Article
Document Abstract:
Adult bone health is governed by the balance of attainment of peak bone mass (PBM) during developments and loss of bone mass with ageing. Skeleton is dynamic, constantly being resorbed and replaced under careful control by genetic, hormonal and mechanical factors. PBM starts to decline between 3-5 years after menopause. This paper reviews the role of nutrition and physical activity in this process of constant remodelling, required to maintain the integrity and maximum mechanical skeleton strength.
