Did you know that as you reach your mid-30s, your bones start to decline? Technically, it’s called bone resorption, but it means that your bones can’t sustain themselves anymore and we lose strength.
There is a fun little battle between the osteoblasts (cells that form the bones) and the osteoclasts (cells that break the bones down). Through most of our lives, the osteoblasts are the victors, but once we hit our 40s, those pesky osteoclasts take charge and the scales tip the other way. Bone loss speeds up; bone formation slows down.
