    Cistanche increases steroidogenic enzymes, lowers NO, helps osteoporosis and Alzheimer's

    I posted these studies in another thread, but I feel they deserve their own thread as they show that cistanche is helping the body on a systemic level. A few new studies on cistanche tubulosa: This one shows that cistanche increases biosynthesis of testosterone by increasing important...

    Pregnenolone (P5) - A New Osteoporosis Drug

    About a month ago, I made a post in regards to aspirin becoming a new treatment for osteoporosis. Several months ago, I made another post about an in-vitro study demonstrating powerful anabolic effects of pregnenolone (P5) on bones. Apparently, the protective effects of P5 on bone health are...

    Aspirin - A New Osteoporosis Drug

    A study published almost a decade ago made the bold claim that aspirin may be a novel drug for osteoporosis. [Effect of aspirin administration for the treatment of osteoporosis in ovariectomized rat model]. - PubMed - NCBI However, the study did not get much traction and was in fact mocked by...

    Osteoporosis Is Caused By Mitochondrial Dysfunction Driven By Nitric Oxide (NO)

    Let’s repeat the mantra one more time – structure and function cannot be separated, they are mutually dependent at every level of reality/life. As such, it is little surprise (to us) that a structural disorder like osteoporosis may be caused by a deficiency in energy production. Yet, despite...

    Pregnenolone Is Anabolic For Bones

    So much for pregnenolone being an inactive steroid. The study below shows that even very low concentrations of pregnenolone are high anabolic for the bone and its effects are comparable to those of potent steroids like DHT or the well-known androgenic-anabolic steroid (AAS) commonly known as...

    High Serotonin Is A Likely Cause Of Most Types Of Fractures

    Peat wrote in a few articles that serotonin is extremely detrimental for bone growth and that anti-serotonin drugs are anabolic for the bone. Serotonin is the most potent inducer of cortisol synthesis, which is probably the main mechanism behind its bone destructive effects. However, serotonin...

    Statins May Exert Beneficial Effects Through A Pathway Other Than It's Cholesterol Lowering Action

    Was surprised when saw a study showing statins have positive effects on bones, did a bit of searching and it turned out that it has some positive action,generally, through inhibiting rho kinase, which also is protective against heart disease. Im not promoting statin use at all(for obvious...

    Sex Hormone-binding Globulin In Osteoporosis

    Sex hormone-binding globulin in osteoporosis. - PubMed - NCBI Abstract Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) is a plasma glycoprotein that binds with high affinity to sex steroids, most notably 5alpha-dihydrotestosterone, testosterone, and 17beta-estradiol, thereby regulating their...

    SSRI Drugs Damage Bone By Increasing Adrenaline

    Over the last few years there have been a number of studies linking SSRI use with increased risk of fracture. Subsequent studies found this link to be definitively causal - i.e. SSRI drugs cause those fractures. However, the mechanism of action was officially ascribed to the medical...

    LRP5 Controls Bone Formation By Inhibiting Serotonin Synthesis In The Duodenum

    LRP5 - Wikipedia im so interest to find any info on how increase Lrp5(it strongly inhibit gut serotonin release) , only thing i found that upregulates the synthesis of it is vitamin D, and also Cholesterol. but who knows, maybe serotonin lowering effect of salt works through this pathway...

    Low-dose Glycine As A Treatment For Menopause, Osteoporosis, Obesity

    This study is a great find IMO but unfortunately it uses the elevations in blood levels of estrogen as a reason to label glycine as estrogenic, which is wrong. Just like progesterone, glycine can trigger release of estrogen from tissues/cells and this elevates the blood levels while lowering it...

    Transdermal Progesterone Reverses Osteoporosis

    I posted this study in the Progestene thread, but I thought that in light of its spectacular claims/results it deserved a separate thread. The dose of progesterone used was not high at all - 7mg twice daily for a total of 14mg daily. However, the study period was quite long (6 years) so it might...

    Aspirin As A "novel" Drug Against Osteoporosis

    If aspirin imporved bone density in this animal model of osteoporosis. So, combining with vitamin K (as Peat suggests) may have an even stronger effect on bone health. [Effect of aspirin administration for the treatment of osteoporosis in ovariectomized rat model]. - PubMed - NCBI "...Aspirin...

    Osteoporosis Is Caused By Stress And Estrogen

    I was shocked to find this "editorial" in, of all places, the BMJ since it is known as one of the bastions of modern "medicine" (together with NEJM). I hope this is a good sign that not all allopathic doctors are villains. Either way, it makes for a very interesting read and it reads as if Peat...

    Serotonin antagonists (could) prevent / treat osteoporosis

    Not sure if Peat has mentioned this before, but I decided to post it anyway. The take of the story is that serotonin antagonists, and especially 5-HT3 antagonists like ondansetron would be very good treatment for osteoporosis. Pharmacological inhibition of gut-derived serotonin synthesis is a...

    Vitamin K Administration To Elderly Patients With Osteoporosis

    That is a lot of K2. Vitamin K administration to elderly patients with osteoporosis induces no hemostatic activation, even in those with suspected vitamin K deficiency http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11846334 The administration of menaquinone-4 (MK-4), one of subclasses of vitamin K2...
