How to keep your structural system healthy
Your structural/skeletal system is made up of the bones and joints which protect your organs, tissues and cells, and which your muscles are built upon.
The key to maintaining healthy bones is getting plenty of exercise to strengthen them, but also ensuring your diet also contains enough vital nutrients to help them develop and grow.
Calcium is a naturally occurring mineral which helps promote healthy bone and joint development.
There are many natural sources of food that can help, including dairy products, which are rich in calcium.
Why is the structural system important?
Your skeletal system provides the structural support for your body.
It protects your organs and serves several other vital functions, including aiding the production of blood cells, and storing and releasing fats and minerals into the bloodstream. Your skeleton also provides the base for all your body’s movement and helps you do the everyday tasks you take for granted, such as sitting down, standing up, walking, lifting and driving.
This means that keeping your bones, joints and muscles healthy, particularly as we get older, is important.
Staying active through regular exercise, and supplementing your physical activity with a diet that’s rich in fruit, vegetables, lean protein and calcium will not only help to keep your body healthy, it will also help to keep your bones and muscles strong and slow the onset of the natural aging process which, unfortunately, happens to us all.
