Bone and Joint Health
Bones and joints benefit from a properly balanced diet. Although we think of bones and joints as static, or completely developed once adulthood is reached, they are constantly restructuring themselves. Therefore, to stay healthy, they need a constant supply of nutrients including protein, water, and minerals like calcium and phosphorous.

- Normal range of motion and flexibility.
- Ability to perform routine tasks or movements, i.e. climb stairs, jump up or down, or play.
