Description Beginning at an early age, women begin to build bone mass, reaching a maximum bone density in their late twenties. A diet rich in essential bone nutrients is critical during these early years of bone development, but food intake surveys suggest that women consume half the recommended amounts of calcium and other bone nutrients for optimal bone health. This deficiency is pronounced in teens who are less likely to eat right but who would benefit from increased bone nutrient consumption as their young bones are absorbing nutrients at a rate nearly double that of adult women. As a woman ages, healthy bone mass and density becomes a more significant influencer of overall health and quality of life. Scientists agree that adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.* Building strong bones through a woman’s formative years and maintaining bone mass and density as she ages are critical parts of a lifelong health strategy.
