Your skeletal system provides the support and structure you need to facilitate movement. Together, your bones protect your internal organs, produce blood cells, and store and release minerals and fat. Essentially, without a fully functioning skeletal system, you would be a mass of skin and organs unable to move or protect yourself from harm.
Many of us take our bones for granted. Unfortunately, as you age, your skeletal system will start to break down. As you get older, you’ll lose bone mass and/or density. The vital minerals and calcium will deplete, leaving your bones thinner and more brittle.
