Brittle Bones

As we age our bodies, instead of storing calcium and phosphates in our bones starts to absorb it. A process designed to weaken them and lead to other chronic bone conditions like osteoporosis and osteogenesis. Regular exercise and vitamin supplements can delay or even virtually halt the process.

“We know that exercise is really good for you, but we’re getting a more complete picture of why it’s good for you. The essential advance in this study is to identify a new way in which exercise strengthens our bones and immune function.” Writes Sean Morrison senior author of a new paper published in the journal Nature.

Dr. Morrison, of the Children’s Medical Research Institute at UT Southwestern, has determined that habitual physical exercise helps promote bone regeneration and improved immune responses. High-impact exercises like jumping, running, and climbing, skipping and Boxing seem to stimulate the production of agents in bone marrow vital for the body’s immune defence and ageing.
