What dairy does for our bodies and why is it important.

At the age of 30 women start to lose the calcium and strength in their bones and they break down causing Osteoporsis which causes the bones to become weak and break. Adding dairy into your diet helps prevent this disease and give nutrients and vitamins to your body.

What is Osteoporosis?

If we don't start providing the nutrients and vitamins in dairy then over time our bones become weak and start to break down causing a disease called Osteoporosis. It weakens the bones causing the bones to lose minerals like calcium, they become fragile and break easily. Some ways to prevent this disease is get the daily recommended amount of calcium and Vitamin D, engage in regular physical activities, avoid smoking and excessive alcohol, talk to a doctor about your health.
