In brief: Hormones
The bones have hormonal receptors.
When the estrogen levels decreased due to menopause the bone cannot incorporate calcium and then they become weaker as the woman ages. It is very important to take a good amount of calcium with food and supplements and exercise to keep the bones healthy.
