  • Nutrition more important than exercise for bone strength

Looking at mineral supplementation and exercise in mice, researchers at the University of Michigan (UM) found surprising results: nutrition has a greater impact on bone mass and strength than exercise. Moreover, even after the cessation of training increase bone tissue was preserved as long as mice on a diet with mineral additives.

"The longer-term mineral-supplemented diet leads to not only increases in bone mass and strength, but the ability to maintain those increases even after detraining", said David Kohn, Professor at University of MI in the US.

"This was done in mice, but if you think about the progression to humans, diet is easier for someone to carry on as they get older and stop exercising, rather than the continuation of exercise itself", Kohn said.

The researchers also found that this diet has a positive effect on bone mass even without training. This surprised Kohn, who expected exercise with a normal diet to fuel greater gains in bone strength, but that wasn't the case.

Special long-term diet with added minerals can prevent the destruction of bone with age, even if the person is not engaged in sports.

Combining the two amplifies the effect.

Most previous studies have focused mainly on calcium, while the University of MI drew attention to phosphorus.

It is known that bone mass reaches a peak a person's early twenties, and then declining.

The authors of the study note that people need to include in your diet calcium and phosphorus.

The question becomes how to maximise the amount of bone when young, so that when declines do begin, people start from a better position, Kohn said.
