The summer months are upon us, and so is the danger of dehydration. Water is essential to the functionality of life. Unfortunately, most individuals intake less H2O than they need to stay hydrated. The adult human body is composed of approximately 60 percent water that vitalizes organs, tissue, muscles and even bones. It also regulates body temperature, supplies nutrition and oxygen to cells, metabolizes carbohydrates and proteins for better absorption, and filters bodily waste.
As we age, our bodies become a little less agile and a little more fragile. Bone health is especially important to manage as we get older because oftentimes our bones weaken and can develop into a condition known as osteoporosis. While it is not always entirely preventable, understanding the causes and treatments for osteoporosis can help.
