As reported by Women’s Health, a study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, scientists from the University of Exeter and the University of Leicester revealed that there is a clear connection between exercise and bone health in women.

In this study involving more than 2,500 women, aimed to compare their level of activity as measured by monitors on the wrist and bone health as measured by ultrasound on intricate bones.

From the study it was found that women who performed a high intensity run for 60 to 120 seconds each day had better bone health 4 percent than those who did it for less than a minute.

Bone health is 6 percent better for those who run for more than two minutes.

In addition to good bone health and strong, serves to sustain the body and can reduce the risk of bone diseases such as osteoporosis and fractures in the old days.
