An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. We are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries as quickly as possible. Unfortunately it is currently taking a little longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow 2-3 working days for shipment.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days.

Bones

There are 206 bones in the adult human body and more than 300 in an infant. As we grow older, smaller bones fuse together until we are left with our 206 fully-grown bones.

image Bones


Bones are not completely solid; the outside is made from cortical bone which is solid and the inside is made from trabecular bone, which is like a honey-comb structure. The spaces between the trabecular bone are filled with bone marrow cells which make the blood and they also contain some fat cells. Every second your bones produce 2 million red blood cells, whilst old cells are destroyed at the same rate

Our bones have a total of eleven main functions, including:

  • Providing us with our shape.
  • Protecting our internal organs.
  • Working in conjunction with tendons, ligaments, skeletal muscles and joints which allow us to move.
  • Acting as storage for minerals and fat.
  • Assisting in blood production.
  • Detoxification of the body by storing heavy metals and other foreign elements.
