muscle and bone
In a new study published in Bone Research, Japanese researchers established a novel drug screening system and identified a promising compound to treat age-associated muscle and bone frailty [1]. Musculoskeletal system Muscle health and bone health are tightly interconnected. Various muscular dystrophies are a great example: disease-caused muscle wasting leads to skeletal deformities, which prompts...
No results
A high-quality, randomized, controlled trial found no effect of vitamin D supplementation or blood levels on the incidence of fractures in an aging population [1]. The common perception doesn't match the science It's a long-held aphorism that vitamin D is good for bone health. This has been popular since it was discovered to be a...
Osteoarthritis
A new study shows that even low levels of physical activity are very good for your muscles, bones, and joints, but exercising too much can potentially harm you [1]. The unholy trinity Sarcopenia, osteoporosis, and osteoarthritis are the trio of age-related diseases that affect, respectively, muscles, bones, and joints. Sarcopenia is the progressive loss of...

A new study published in the journal Aging has examined the effects of vibration on cellular senescence and osteoporosis. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part; instead, they emit potentially harmful chemical signals, collectively...
Osteoporosis Hip
Research on rodents shows that alpha-ketoglutarate could be an effective way to treat or even prevent osteoporosis [1]. BoneBone tissue serves as the primary structural component of our bodies. It protects our delicate inner organs, plays a key role in whole body calcium, phosphorus, and acid-base homeostasis, and allows movement to occur by giving our...
CGI image of the gut and microbiome
Researchers from the University of Geneva have shown that a warm environment improves bone strength and highlights a related link with gut microbiome composition. These findings also pave the way for novel therapies for the treatment of osteoporosis. Turning up the heat Osteoporosis is an age-related bone disease typified by the loss of bone density,...
