Date:6/17/2008

NORWALK, Conn., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- More than half of people 50 and older are at risk for osteoporosis, the most common bone disease, according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation. It is essential to make bone health a priority because bone loss occurs without symptoms.

-- Since bone is living tissue that constantly renews itself, maintaining strong bones is of utmost importance, especially in our early years. After age 30, bone breakdown exceeds bone formation, causing us to reach our peak bone mass. It is therefore necessary, by age 30, to have accumulated enough calcium in our bones to maintain calcium requirements for both our skeletal structure and our body.
