Once bone formation has stopped (somewhere about 28 years of age) peak bone mass is maintained by a process called "remodeling". Remodeling is a process, which involves the continuous breakdown and re-formation of bone. Any factor, which causes a higher rate of bone remodeling, will ultimately lead to a more rapid loss of bone mass and thus more fragile bones.
At the ends of bones, where they meet other bones at the joints, lies valuable biomaterial called cartilage. This elastic tissue cushions your joints together with synovial fluid and together acts as a shock absorber to help reduce the wear and tear that come with functional stress and aging. Degradation may result in inflammation, pain, loss of movement, and loss of a key element of youthfulness. It is at this time you may be looking for products that may help promote bone health and build, protect, and restore cartilage needed to support proper joint function.
