KEEP MOVING FOR HEALTHY BONES: Bone is a very dynamic tissue and actually responds well to stress. Engaging in weight bearing activities (anything from walking to strength training) will stimulate osteoblasts, the bone cells that are responsible for the mineralization of our skeletons. Try a wide variety of activities to provide “good” stress to all of your bones as well as avoid boredom. Engaging in regular weight bearing activities combined with getting adequate calcium, Vitamins D, A and C, magnesium and iron in your diet can improve your bone density no matter what your age.
