How’s your bone bank looking? 🦴🏦 Over 1 million Australians suffer from Osteoporosis, a condition where bones become brittle and weak and are more likely to fracture. This can be prevented by exercise and ensuring a good intake of calcium and vitamin D.

Exercising regularly can help achieve greater peak bone mass than those who don’t. For most people, bone mass peaks in the third decade of life, after that time we can begin to loose bone.

The best exercises to help gain bone mass are weight bearing and resistance exercises. These include walking, jogging, climbing stairs, dancing and lifting weights. It is recommended to aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise at least 3 times a week.

So if you imagine your bones as a bank, the more regular exercise you put in the less risk of osteoporosis you’ll have in the future.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

Australia: sun, beaches, rainforests and..vitamin D deficiency? ☀️ It’s hard to believe that despite having such great climates, 1 in 4 Aussies are thought to be vitamin D deficient with 7% of us having a moderate or severe deficiency.

Vitamin D is a hormone in our body that regulates our calcium levels in our blood. It’s therefore important for good bone and muscle health. Recent research has shown that having a deficiency is linked to an increased risk of bowel cancer, heart disease and auto-immune diseases.

Exposure to UVB radiation (from the sun) is the main source of vitamin D. Once we’re exposed to this our body goes through a number of changes to make vitamin D. You can also get vitamin D through some dietary sources such as milk, oily fish and eggs.

There are certain groups of people who are at risk of deficiencies, including people with naturally dark skin as the pigment inside skin (melanin) acts as a filter to UVB radiation. Older frail adults, those wearing concealing clothing for religious or cultural reasons and night shift workers are also at risk.

The safest time to get your UVB radiation from the sun is when the UV index is below 3. If the UV index is above 3 be sure to wear protection, most people will get their quota of vitamin D through a few minutes of day to day activity.

So Australia, let’s get our bones nice and strong for 2019 🦴💪 Take care and stay healthy x

Always make sure that you use sunscreen at least SPF30 whilst in the sun and avoid the peak times of 10am-3pm.
