Nutrition more important than exercise for bone and mass strength, says study
We all are aware that diet and exercise can help you to maintain a good bone health. But, these new revelations of the study will shock you! Researchers have found that nutrition has a greater impact on bone mass and strength than exercise, looking at mineral supplementation and exercise in mice. Yes, you have heard it right!
Reportedly, even after the exercise training stopped, the mice retained bone strength gains as they ate a mineral-supplemented diet. According to David Kohn, Professor at the University of Michigan in the US, the longer-term mineral-supplemented diet not only increases the bone mass and strength but also maintain those increases even after detraining. Another vital finding is that the diet alone has helpful effects on bone, even without exercising. Isn’t it surprising?
Reportedly, according to the data, the long-term consumption of the mineral-supplemented diet could be helpful in preventing bone loss and strength with age, even if you don’t do exercise training.
Reportedly, The new study, published in the journal PLOS One, examined the effects of increased dietary calcium and phosphorous and found benefits of increasing both. According to Kohn, it doesn’t mean that people run out and buy calcium and phosphorus supplements. Hence, the findings do not translate directly from mice to humans, they do give researchers a conceptual place to start.
