Smorgasbord Health 2017 – Top to Toe – The Incredible structure that keeps us upright.

Unless we break a bone or crack one, we tend to take our skeleton for granted. As we get older we can also experience problems within the structure particularly in the joints that limit our mobility and provide an excuse for not doing quite as much exercise as we should!However, it is never too late to help your bones as our diet and our exercise levels do have an impact on the regeneration of this essential framework.I am going to give an overview today on our skeleton and then follow that up with a closer look at the essential nutrients needed in the formation and maintenance of our bones and the precious marrow that is held inside them. This marrow is essential for our immune system and overall health. Arthritis in its various forms is likely to affect most of us as we grow older and I will cover the three most common – Osteo-Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Gout during the series. The other area that is an increasingly more prevalent problem for the elderly is osteoporosis.
