What is the link between estrogen and bone health?

Estrogen is important in maintaining bone mass in adult women; in part it slows bone remodeling (replacing old bone with new bone). And while bone remodeling is normally a good thing, it takes place over weeks and months. Therefore, it leaves a woman more susceptible to bone fracture -- estrogen helps to slow this process down. So basically, the estrogen maintains the proper balance between the activity of bone-forming cells (osteoblasts) and bone-resorbing cells (osteoclasts).
