Osteoporosis Treatments In herbal medicine perspective

Osteoporosis is defined as a condition of thinning of bone and bone tissues as a result of  the loss of bone density over a long period of time.
V. Treatments
B. In herbal medicine perspective
1. Red clover

In the study to test the combined effect of a quality-controlled red clover extract (RCE) standardized to contain 40% isoflavones by weight (genistein, daidzein, biochanin A, and formononetin present as hydrolyzed aglycones) together with a modified alkaline supplementation on bone metabolic and biomechanical parameters in an experimental model of surgically-induced menopause, showed that red clover preparation in dosages amenable to clinical practice do improve OVX-induced osteoporosis while a mild metabolic alkalosis might further synergize some therapeutic aspects(44).
2. Soy
In the study to to examine whether soybean protein isolate prevents bone loss induced by ovarian hormone deficiency, researchers at the Department of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, University of Illinois at Chicago, indicated that despite the higher rate of bone turnover in the soybean-fed animals, the vertebral and femoral bone densities of these rats were significantly greater than those of rats in the ovx group, suggesting that formation exceeded resorption(45).
3. Soybeans, clover and alfalfa sprouts, and oilseeds (such as flaxseed)
Studies in humans, animals, and cell culture systems suggest that dietary phytoestrogens found in Soybeans, clover and alfalfa sprouts, and oilseeds (such as flaxseed) play an important role in prevention of menopausal symptoms, osteoporosis, cancer, and heart disease(46).
