By 25 years of age, we attain peak bone mass after which the bones start depleting.
In the current study, higher protein intake seems to be more beneficial for boosting (bone density) for women age 14 to 29 years compared to those age 30 to 40 years, who have already reached their peak bone mass, Beasley pointed out.
After puberty, men tend to acquire greater bone mass than women, and black women generally achieve higher peak bone mass than white women.
Since peak bone mass is not achieved until the third decade of life, young adults should consume adequate amounts of calcium, protein and vitamin D, found in dairy products, to support health and prevent osteoporosis later in life.
Possible reasons for this high prevalence rate are; low calcium intake leading to a lower peak bone mass, low physical activity and, high prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency.
The maximum amount of skeletal mass accrued in an individual is called their peak bone mass and averages about 2,400 grams in females.
