With regards to calcium, the constituent of bones, the richest and most usable nutrient in the body is milk. The essential vitamins and minerals are required to be taken regularly, particularly during childhood (6-10 years) and adolescence (10-18 years).

Consumption of milk and dairy products until the early twenties when bone development reaches its climax helps with the increase in bone mass and the consolidation of the bones. This way, the risk of osteoporosis, also known as bone loss, can be avoided in the advancing ages.
