Nearly one out of three seniors over the age of 65 suffers a fall once a year. It is not uncommon for this to result in serious consequences, such as a femoral neck fracture. This is due not only to the risk of falls increasing with age but also to the decrease in bone density – bones splinter more easily and do not heal as well. Accordingly, many people decide to prevent this and preserve bone health through targeted nutrition. Many think first and foremost about calcium and the daily glass of milk. This is certainly not wrong but nutrition tailored to bone health includes just a bit more. Two biofactors which are as important for your bone structure as calcium are vitamin D and magnesium. Here you can learn about the role they play and why it can be dangerous to neglect them.
