HALF OF ALL ADULTS OVER 50 FACE THIS RISK

Did you know that one in two women and up to one in four men will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis?!!!



Not only that but HALF of all adults age 50 and older are at risk of breaking a bone due to poor bone health.

Even though those worries might seem a long way off, what you do TODAY can have a big impact on your bone health.



👉Here are some key things you can do to help you stay strong and independent as you get older:

  • Get enough calcium and vitamin D: Talk to your healthcare provider about ways to make sure you get enough daily. 
  • Exercise regularly: Make muscle-strengthening and weight-bearing exercise a non-negotiable. A minimum of two resistance training workouts a week is recommended.
  • Don’t smoke and DO limit alcohol intake: Both can lead to bone loss.
  • Ask your healthcare provider: They can give you info about your risk of getting osteoporosis, and guide you when it comes to getting a bone density test.

If you want help in building healthy habits that support your bones (and the rest of your body, too!), LYONSTRONG may be a great fit!



It focuses on fixing your movement patterns which in turn will help you eliminate any pain you might be experiencing and make you stronger during the process.
