Taikong Yangxin Prescription, Containing 10 Chinese herbs(543), in male Sprague-Dawley rats model, the herbal formula express favorably in significant protective effect against bone loss through increases of the trabecular BMD, bonevolume fraction, trabecular number and thickness(543).
No other studies have been found for this formula.

2. QiBaoMeiRan Wan
The herbal formula is a composition of 7 herbs including Shou Wu, Fu Ling, Niu Xi, Dang Gui, Gou Qi Zi, Bu Gu Zhi and Hei Zhi Ma(546) used in traditional Chinese medicine for nourished kidney yin and tonified blood(545) in menopausal women of that may be a leading canadate for treatment of osteoporosis as a result of etrogenic deficiency(545).  In ovariectomized rat model, QiBaoMeiRan Wan exhibited anti osteoporotic protective effects through increase in serum alkaline phosphatase, bone Gla-protein and C-telopeptide fragments of type I collagen and decreased the decline of serum calcium and phosphorus in the circulation, the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences suggested(544).

3. Bu-Shen-Ning-Xin Decoction

According to the joint study lead by the Fudan University Shanghai Medical College, administration of the decoration exhibited inhibitory effects on osteoclast differentiation and bone resorption through suppressed RANKL-induced NF-κB transcription(548) via selective estrogenic receptors.
Dr. Gui Y and the research team at the Fudan University showed that oral administration of Bu-Shen-Ning-Xin decoction (BSNXD)in rat model increased DHEA and inhibited RANKL-induced osteoclastogenesis in vitro in a dose-dependent manner(549).

4. Xianlinggubao prescription

5. Er-Xian Decoction
Er-Xian Decoration is a herbal composition containing Xian Mao, Yin Yang Huo, Ba Ji Tian, Dang Gui, Huang Bo and Zhi Mu used in traditional Chinese medicine for treatment of menopausal symptoms(552) and estrogenic deficient osteoporosis(553) through partially the ER signaling pathway(553). According to the study by the Second Military Medical University, Er-Xian decoction (EXD) not only exhibited a protective effect against bone loss in ovariectomized osteoporotic rats through inhibitory effects on osteoclastic bone resorption but also improved the ratio of protein expression of osteoprotegerin (OPG) and RANKL in osteoblasts(554) through its interaction of phytochemicals effects oficariin, curculigoside, and berberine(554).
Combination with epimedium herbs, and icariin also expressed the anti osteoporotic activity through emulated estrogen and improved bone density and architecture, the Second Military Medical University suggested (555).

6. Liu Wei Di Huang Wan
The herbal formula is a composition of  Shu Di Huang, Shan Zhu Yu, Mu Dan Pi, Shan Yao, Fu Ling and Ze Xie used in traditional Chinese medicine for treatment of varies diseases with kidney and liver yin deficiency. The formula may also be used for postmenopausal osteoporosis (PO) due to its phytochemicals orroniside and loganin activities in improved the activity of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and increased the contents of collagen type I and osteocalcin, Dr. Li M and the research team at the Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine suggested(557).
In  a 8-week-old female Sprague-Dawley (SD) ovariectomy (OVX) rat, intragastric administration improve bone density through significantly decrease the serum level of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), osteocalcin (BGP) in serum(556).
