Bones are constantly being remodeled, not only during the growth stages, but also into adulthood. This process of bone turnover involves two types of cells: osteoblasts and osteoclasts. Osteoblasts promote bone formation and create collagen, so that calcium can effectively adhere to the collagen and create new tissue. Osteoclasts destroy old bone tissue by releasing acid and enzymes to dissolve calcium and collagen. However, osteoclasts can become excessive due to hormonal imbalances and other factors, leading to calcium deficiency in the bone. Therefore, nutrients that suppress excess osteoclast activity and support osteoblast activity are important to the health of the bones.
