Soy Isoflavones Proved To Help Build Bone

June 2007
Environmental Nutrition;Jun2007, Vol. 30 Issue 6, p1
The article reports on the study conducted by a group of researchers from Japan and China which discovers that regular intake of isoflavones from soy has slowed bone resorption and increased bone formation. Researchers review the findings of nine previous studies and examine specific markers for bone loss and bone formation that showed up in blood of 432 participants. They have found out that taking up to 90 milligrams of isoflavones a day for 12 weeks is enough to boost bone health.

    Amylin is a member of the calcitonin family of hormones cosecreted with insulin from the pancreatic β-cells that can act as an osteoblast mitogen and as an inhibitor of bone resorption in mice and humans. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of amylin on bone formation and some...

    Bone remodeling is the concerted interplay of two cellular activities: osteoclastic bone resorption and osteoblastic bone formation. Bone remodeling is the physiologic process that maintains bone mass, skeletal integrity and skeletal function. A molecular understanding of this process is...
