Did you know that when your body doesn’t get enough calcium it can actually steal calcium from your bones in an effort to assist in various metabolic functions? It’s true!

While bone loss is typically an inevitable part of getting older, certain conditions and health issues resulting from bone loss, like osteoporosis, can be avoided by staying active (weight bearing exercises) and ensuring you are getting enough calcium and vitamin D.
