Osteoporosis is the thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density over time. Calcium and phosphate are two minerals that are essential for normal bone formation. As you age, calcium and phosphate may be reabsorbed back into the body from the bones, which makes the bone tissue weaker, resulting in brittle, fragile bones that are more prone to fractures, even without injury.
