Your bones provide structure to your body, protect your organs, anchor your muscles, and store calcium (used for more than just bones). Strong bones will serve you for the long term, whereas weakened bone mass can lead to osteoporosis, osteopenia, bone fractures, etc.
We often do not think about our bone mass and how strong or weak it is until our senior years, but what happens to your bones starts many years earlier. Your body begins to build bone mass from birth up to age 30 (approximately). It is estimated that by age 30, you have reached your peak bone mass, which means the bone mass you have built up to this point is the foundation that will carry you through your life. After age 30, your bone mass begins to decline slowly, and you tend to lose more bone mass than you gain.
Many risk factors determine the rate at which this happens besides just ageing, such as
- The amount of calcium in your diet (a diet low in calcium contributes to bone loss)
- your physical activity (weight bearing and physical activities help to strengthen bone mass.
- The use of tobacco and alcohol (excessive) can contribute to bone loss (leaches minerals from the body).
- Women tend to have less bone mass than men and are more at risk due to hormone fluctuations from teen to adult (PMS & menopause).
- Digestive disorders such as Crohn's, IBS and leaky gut can cause malabsorption of nutrients leading to a deficiency in minerals, including calcium and magnesium
- Eating disorders and being too thin can weaken bones and muscle, thyroid disorders and medications can increase bone loss, and long-term use of some medicines.
The good news is that an early understanding of the time frame for building bone mass can help you and your growing children to develop stronger bones at a younger age and maintain bone density throughout your life's timeline. Recognizing those lifestyle factors and how they put you at risk may also help you to offset the bone loss and move into your senior years with a stronger foundation.
Take stock of your diet and that of your children and teens to ensure they consume foods high in calcium and supporting vitamins and minerals, such as hormone-free dairy, fresh wild-caught salmon, dark leafy greens, and soy foods. If you cannot consume calcium-rich foods daily, consider supplementation to bridge the gaps in your nutritional intake, such as Salus Liquid Calcium & Magnesium.
