Exercise Can Forestall Osteoporosis

Higher levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) may decrease your bone mineral density by increasing cytokines, which are regulatory proteins produced by white blood cells.

Researchers measured FSH and bone mineral density in 36 women between the ages of 20 to 50. They found that higher FSH levels were correlated with lower bone mineral density.

However, they also found that study participants who exercised more than 3 hours a week retained greater bone density.
