In brief: Exercise, Calcium

Exercise - especially weight bearing exercise will help to increase bone mass (premenopausal) or slow down the rate of bone loss (post menopausal).
Calcium slows the rate of bone loss. Women over 50 should take between 1200mg-1500mg per day of calcium (divided into 2-3 doses per day). Leafy green veggies, dairy and yogurt added to your diet. Estrogen replacement in postmenopausal women may help.
