Bone density is the term used to describe bone strength. Healthy bones are dependant on:
Adequate nutrient intake of calcium and other minerals, vitamin D, K, B vitamins, protein, and sufficient energy in general
Adequate digestion and absorptions of the nutrients above
Correct pH balance of the body
Healthy hormone balance
The bone density ultrasound is a fantastic tool that can assess bone density without exposure to radiation. It can be used to screen your bones to see they are at the correct density for your age or identify early signs of bone loss to reduce the risk of osteoporosis long term. Similar to muscle weight, adequate bone density is a sign of balanced health.
