Did You Know?
The structural system provides a framework for the body consisting of bones, muscles, skin, membranes, and connective tissues, collectively giving the body form, mobility and protection. Although bones generally stop growing in length during mid-teens for girls and at around age 20 for boys, they never really stop the growing process, because they are constantly rebuilding themselves. To sustain this growth, the body must have sufficient supplies of certain nutrients including calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D. If there is a shortage of calcium in the bloodstream, the body will remove it from the bones without replacing it. This can eventually cause bones to become weak and porous. Unchecked, this can lead to a condition known as osteoporosis. When approaching menopause, the rate of bone loss accelerates greatly, partly because of a decreased secretion of the hormone oestrogen, which helps maintain bone mass. Men can also be affected, although the number of men experiencing serious bone loss is only about one fifth that of women.
What are the benefits?
Regular, lifelong activity is essential to keeping bones and muscles functioning optimally. Diet is also extremely important, and a shortage of calcium over an extended period can spell disaster. In fact, a loss of calcium is a most serious nutritional problem. Nature’s Sunshine’s Skeletal Strength provides nutrients the body uses to manufacture bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and skin. These nutrients counteract many of the forces that deplete the structural system of strength and flexibility under mechanical stress and the ability to replenish the blood supply.
The structural system is the framework for your body. This Key System Product provides a unique and comprehensive blend of nutrients the body uses to manufacture bones and muscles, and to fight the forces that deplete the structural system of strength and flexibility.
