There are a number of factors that contribute to your risk of developing osteoporosis. As a child the body begins forming the skeletal structure and the skeleton grows throughout childhood until you reach adulthood. Although the skeleton stops growing in size when you reach adulthood, the skeleton still continues to increase bone mass until well into adulthood. At some point, peak bone density is achieved. Thereafter bone mass begins decreasing as you age. The higher the bone density is when peak density is achieved, the less your risk of developing osteoporosis when you are older. It is therefore vital to ensure the body has all the nutrients required to help it to reach high bone densities as a young adult to help to avoid disorders like osteoporosis later in life.
The Cal/Mag supplement by Douglas Laboratories provides you with 750mg of calcium as well as the other nutrients required to support peak bone density and to promote healthy bone formation.
