About Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis - sometimes referred to as brittle bone disease - refers to a loss of bone density and can result in serious fractures.

According to Osteoporosis Australia, fractures related to this condition occur at a rate of about once every five to six minutes - and this number could climb higher as the population continues to age.

While osteoporosis is often considered to be a disease that affects women, men can also suffer from osteoporotic fractures - and people of all ages should take steps to protect their bones.

Vitamin D can help facilitate the body's absorption of calcium - the mineral that strengthens bones - and you may want to speak to the pharmacist at your local Terry White Chemists for more information. We sell calcium and vitamin D supplements to ensure you get the nutrients you need for strong, healthy bones.
