The 5 Pillars to Bone Health
Nourishing your body all the way to the bones, requires you to look at the body a little different than just replacing the nutrients that make up the bone. Our skeletal structure not only keeps us upright, but our bones are also a storehouse for minerals and the birthplace for our red and white blood cells, platelets and stem cells, deep within the bone marrow. We might only think of our bones when it comes to aging and their density, but this dynamic tissue plays numerous roles in our overall health. A diagnosis of osteopenia or osteoporosis can be scary. As we age, our bone density changes, but how much it changes can depend on many factors, relating to our whole body.
