Our bones are living organisms that perform important functions in addition to holding us up. Once they reach what's called peak bone mass sometime in our 20s, they undergo constant repair and maintenance in a process called remodeling. But despite this activity, we begin gradually to lose bone mass in our mid-30s (later for men) and will do so for the rest of our lives.
This age-related bone loss is entirely natural, but a highly acidic diet, smoking, excess alcohol consumption, and stress may make things worse. Supplementing with a variety of vitamins and minerals, especially if they're highly bioavailable like Doctor’s Best, will help ensure that your body has the building blocks for healthy bones.
