Podcast Episode Sixteen: Understanding Bone Health & How to Keep Your Bones Strong

Bone health isn’t just about getting enough calcium and avoiding osteoporosis (although those are good goals).

Bones are living organisms, and they require specific needs to keep them healthy.

  • Understanding osteoporosis (why it happens and how to counteract it)
  • Benefits of nutrition and digestion
