Probiotics Reduces Bone Loss in Women

Parent Interventions

Probiotics is helpful in reducing bone loss in women. After the age of 30, bone loss exceeds bone formation, resulting in a gradual loss of bone density. For women, bone resorption- and consequently bone loss-accelerates, as estrogen levels decline during menopause. This acceleration increases the risk of osteoporosis and resulting fractures, according to a study conducted among 249 healthy women aged 47-69 years by La Trobe University, Australia in 2018. The placebo-controlled study showed 78% decreased bone loss compared to placebo. La Trobe nutrition researcher Associate Professor George Moschonis, will lead a new study aiming to investigate the effect of probiotics in an Australian female population using novel techniques. It will examine the modulatory role of the gut microbiome.
