Exercise & Adolescent Girls – Osteoporosis Prevention 40 Years in Advance

Preventing osteoporosis begins at a young age.  Yet another study has found that when girls exercise, their risk of post-menopausal osteoporosis is reduced.  These results were identified with bone mineral density and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) testing.

Bottom Line:

In addition to adequate calcium intake and adequate vitamin D status, lifelong exercise plays an important role in preventing osteoporosis.

Be Well,
