Aging can be a tough thing on a lot of people. Ask those who lead full and busy lives and they will tell you they usually do not notice the years creep in until they are are right upon them. This may not be a bad thing but there are steps a person needs to take to make sure that he or she is in good health as he or she advances in years. Nutritional requirements and exercise requirements are two things that change as a person grows older.

One condition a lot of older women suffer from is Osteoporosis. This is a bone condition and usually means a lack of calcium leading to bone density deterioration. It can cause changes in posture and physical discomfort. It is most common in women. Women need to make a conscious effort to take in more Vitamin D and calcium as the years pass by in order for the bones to remain strong. Regular check ups can also help monitor calcium levels and save any bone deterioration.
