Why participate?

We naturally lose bone density as we age, however it's accelerated during the early postmenopausal years. The animation below  compares the bone density of young women with postmenopausal women. Retaining bone density as we age helps reduce fracture risk and is better for overall health.

By participating in our study, you will receive all the test results from the bone scans, blood samples, stool tests and dietary analysis we perform at the conclusion of the study (worth approximately $1,200). You can then share these results with your healthcare practitioner.
