Osteoporosis is a medical condition characterized by the loss of bone density.
In other words, the bone disease is a result of overexpression of bone loss due to bone resorption compared to bone made by the body, leading to risk bone fracture and breaking.
Additionally, 1 in 4 women and more than 1 in 8 men over the age of 50 years, with 1 in 4 men and women are having evidence of a vertebral fracture.
On finding a natural compound for the treatment of osteoporosis, researchers evaluated the efficacy, in term of changes in bone density, and safety of an oral formulation based on turmeric phytosome (Meriva®), in subjects suffering from low bone density.
Based on the results researchers said, "This preliminary study suggests that a curcumin-based supplementation in combination with an appropriate lifestyle could be beneficial in the prevention and management of osteopenia".
Moreover, curcumin treatment markedly increased levels of phosphorylated protein kinase B (Akt) and phosphorylated glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK3β) that have been found to induced bone loss in low levels.
