Consuming calcium and protein-rich cheese lowers bone loss (Osteoporosis). The most important thing to do for the protection of bone health and reduction of the fracture risk is sufficient calcium and vitamin D intake.

Experts that draw attention to the importance of calcium and vitamin D consumption for children's development state that regular milk and dairy product consumption as well as vitamin D intake will particularly reduce the risk of osteoporosis in the future.

Osteoporosis means the loss of a major part of calcium required for strong and healthy bones and the decline of bone structure and quality. While the genetic structure is important for it, malnutrition and unbalanced diet starting from childhood, as well as a sedentary lifestyle, also paves the way for bone loss. The two of the most important factors to prevent osteoporosis is to ensure strong bone development and prevent bone loss. Daily calcium need must be satisfied to protect and support the bone health. Daily calcium need for adults is 1200 milligrams, and the best calcium resources are milk and dairy products. Cheese has more calcium content compared to other dairy products.
