Bone is an active tissue that adapts to mechanical and physiological demands to maintain its structure and mineral homoeostasis. Bone remodeling is tightly regulated by hormones and other endocrine mediators that can be affected by nutrient deficiencies, food components, and a number of endogenous and environmental factors.
This Special Issue compiles original research and scientific perspectives providing information on:
- Factors related to impaired bone health (worldwide perspective)
- Impact of diet on bone metabolism disorders
- Role of dietary macronutrients on bone homeostasis;
- Role of dietary minerals on bone homeostasis;
- Vitamin D deficiency and obesity
- Recent findings on vitamin K and bone metabolism
- Vitamins B and bone health
- Role of bioactive food components on bone cells
- Acid-base equilibrium and bone remodeling
- Nutrigenetic and nutrigenomic aspects of bone health
- Interactions between nutrition, physical activity, and lifestyle and their impact on bone health
