We have a bone to pick with osteoporosis: What can you do to avoid it?

Jan 28th, 2019 | Category: Young Living Product Blog

A number of factors can contribute to osteoporosis, but according to the Mayo Clinic, here are some of the most common:

1. Family tree: If you have family, like a sibling or parent, with osteoporosis, you are more likely to have the disease yourself.

2. Years old: Even though young people can get osteoporosis, it is more prevalent among people 50 years and older.

3. Small frames: Women and men with small body frames, because they have less bone mass to lose, are at higher risk for osteoporosis due to decrease in bone mass over time.

4. Insufficient calcium intake: A lack of calcium across a lifetime can cause a lack of bone density.

5. Lack of exercise: Those who tend to sit all day, like at desk jobs, or who don’t exercise enough are more prone to osteoporosis.
