Study: For Healthy Bones, Start Running

We’re in the business of enhancing quality of life for our customers and their families by helping them be financially prepared for the future. Our life insurance and annuity products can help make retirement dreams come true – and they can help families cope when the unexpected happens. But quality of life, especially for older Americans, also depends on good health. So we want to share news of a study that found that running may be better than swimming, cycling or other cardiovascular activities when it comes to long-term bone health. Researchers theorize that putting greater strain on bones may help the body respond to exercise in a way that doesn’t increase calcium loss into the bloodstream, which weakens bones over time. So folks who are prone to bone diseases, such as osteoporosis, might want to lace up the running shoes to help their bones stay strong.
