Why is it important for younger women to think about bone health?

When women are younger – in their teens and early 20s – they have a chance to build denser, stronger bones, according to the National Osteoporosis FoundationOff Site Icon (NOF). It’s important that young women take advantage of that opportunity because once they’re older, improving bone health is no longer possible.

Building strong bones while you’re young can help prevent osteoporosis – weakened bones – when you’re older, according to the NOF.

For more information about young women improving bone health, talk with your physician.
