Deep Wrinkles May Be a Health Warning

Researchers recently found that deep wrinkles may be a sign of an increased risk for bone fractures. In a study of 114  postmenopausal women, it was discovered that those who had numerous, deep wrinkles on their neck and face were more likely to have low bone density in their hips, spine, and heels and this relationship was independent of age or of factors known to influence bone mass.

Since collagen is found in both skin and bones, it makes sense that a loss of collagen in one area, may indicate a loss in another. If you do have deep wrinkes, you should book an appointment for a  bone density scan and consider a comprehensive bone health supplement that includes calcium., magnesium and vitamins D and K2 to protect against further bone loss.
