World Osteoporosis Day (WOD)
WOD is an official IOF event and takes place on the 20th of October every year to promote the maintenance of bone health as a worldwide priority through research, training, education and awareness campaigns. This year’s theme focuses on Nutrition and addresses the public health challenges associated with insufficient intake of calcium, vitamin D and protein as well as other micronutrients crucial to bone health. Rousselot’s range of bioactive collagen peptides, marketed under the Peptan brand, are natural ingredients that can support bone, joint and muscle health.
