Carrots may have a profound and positive effect of improving bone health, some scientists suggested.
Osteoporosis is a bone disease characterized by the inability of the body to produce bone to make up bone loss, leading the loss of bone density over a long period of time.
People with low bone density are susceptible to fracture, break from a fall due to bone weakening.
The exact causes of osteoporosis are unknown. However, researchers do know that certain preventable risk factors such as smoking, low calcium intake, physical inactivity, excessive alcohol consumption and unpreventable risk factors such as aging, family history, genders, race, body frame size,... and sedentary works are associated to increase the onset of the disease.
Some researchers also suggested that loss of bone density due to age, medications used to treat breast cancer, arthritis, asthma and certain chronic diseases such as Crohn's disease and Addison's disease and hyperthyroidism, hypopituaritism and eating disorders are also considered as some major risk factors of osteoporosis.
Most common symptoms of osteoporosis include back pain, as a result of a fractured or collapsed vertebra, loss of height and a stooped posture.
Many patients with osteoporosis also experience symptoms of a bone fracture.
If you experience some of the symptoms of above, you may have osteoporosis.
Conventional medicine such as Bisphosphonates: Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva, Zoledronic Acid Bisphosphonates may be effective on reduced risk of fracture, decelerated bone loss and ameliorate pain. However, they may induce some adverse effects, including impaired thinking, fainting, and feeling light-headed, rapid heart rate,.... and gastrointestinal discomforts.

In the reaffirm the antioxidant activity in protection of osteoporotic women, researchers at the University of Wisconsin (UW)-Madison launched an investigation of carotenoids in human serum effect of promotion of bone health among postmenopausal women.
* Intake of carotenoids scores a significant effect of protecting the bone density, observed by the dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry and osteoporosis diagnosis was based upon T-scores.
* Serum lycopene and beta-cryptoxanthin measured by 0.03 and 0.006, respectively in participants were correlated to the total intake of fruits and vegetables.
* Higher lycopene intake had lower risk of hip fracture (p =0.01) and nonvertebral fracture (p = 0.02).
And several members in carotenoids may play a protective role in bone health in older adults.
* Carotenoid and lycopene intake exerted a 4-y change in lumbar spine BMD for women, and
