Why track it?
Bone mass can start to decline from the age of 30, and so people like to track it over time to monitor changes, and spot any issues that may indicate a problem. A good diet that includes plenty of nutrients such as calcium, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Potassium and Magnesium is key to keeping your bones healthy.
How is it measured?
The only way to measure your bone mass percentage is by using a special body composition scale.
If you know you want to track bone mass percentage we certainly aren’t going to stop you, but it’s our opinion that you don’t need to track this unless your doctor recommended it.
