Physical Activity Improves Bone Health

Research at King Abdulaziz Univeristy in Saudia Arabia has found that premenopausal women who exercised more than 120 minutes per week had significantly (P<0.0001) better biomarkers for bone health than those who exercised less than 30 minutes weekly. A follow-up study also found that bone mineral density was significantly higher (P<0.0001) in the active group versus the sedentary group. Activities included fast walking, running, cycling, step-ups, mobility exercises, and stretching.
