Bone Health Made Easy
Your bones provide structure, protect organs, secure muscles, and contain calcium.

Bones are constantly changing, generating new tissue to replace the old. As you age, it's important to maintain good bone health.

According to Dr. Ken Howayeck, there are four key elements:

  • Get plenty of calcium.
  • Pay attention to vitamin D.
  • Strengthen bone density through physical activity.
  • Avoid substance abuse.
