Summary In this book, the authors delve into the latest findings in bone and other tissues including muscle and brain, and discuss the recent evidences of the roles of protein, potassium, B vitamins, vitamin D, omega 3 fatty acids and flavonoids on bone and muscle health. The interactions between bone and other conditions such as chronic kidney disease are examined. Furthermore, the role of nutrition is also reviewed specifically for the prevention of sarcopenia, frailty and their consequences (falls, hip fractures, loss of autonomy) to address the challenges of an aging population. Nutritional Influences on Bone Health - 9th International Symposium presents the latest scientific data, concepts, and updates on the knowledge of several nutrients. This unique book will be of great interest to health professionals across many disciplines including nutrition and dietetics, gerontologists, nurses, general practitioners as well as anyone in the food and fitness industry
