Your bones are not just solid structures that make up your skeleton, they are also living tissue. Bones support muscles, protect organs and store much of your body’s calcium. Bone and muscle health are critical to maintaining an active and rewarding lifestyle for people of all ages. The fitness of bones and joints determines, to a greater extent than any other factor, how well people do as they age.
