Bone is living tissue. As people age, bone loses calcium and other minerals and its structure undergoes changes which can result in loss of bone tissue. Low BONE DENSITY or bone mass can leave seniors with weaker bones.
This can be due to inactivity, or hormonal changes, such as menopause in women and a gradual decrease in testosterone in men. It leaves seniors with a greater risk of fractures from a bump or a sudden fall.
As with muscles and joints, movement and exercise can prevent the onset of bone conditions. Exercise can slow the rate of bone loss and help them to stay strong. Weight-bearing exercise and exercise in water is beneficial for bones.
Essential Oils and products that can help maintain bone health include:
