Why is bone health important for women during the menopause?
Women's bones tend to be smaller and thinner than a man’s, and as a woman approaches the menopause, their ovaries produce less estrogen. This may cause a woman's bone cells to break down, and furthermore lead to Osteoporosis (a health condition that weakens bones).
Other than supplementation, how can women look after their bones?
Muscle-strengthening exercises are important for building bones in every stage of life, so there it may prove beneficial for a woman to maintain a regular pattern of exercise. Increasing one's calcium intake (through diet) may help too, as calcium builds strong bones and can easily be obtained from low-fat milk, dairy products and Fish.
Cutting down on Salt, caffeine and alcohol may also help to preserve bone health in women as calcium is often lost when these food & drink sources are regularly consumed in large amounts. And finally, keeping the environment around you clean & tidy will significantly decrease the risk of a fall, and in-turn reduce the risk of a bone fracture.
