Tag: Osteoporosis

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...

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,...

Because of bone's natural self-healing abilities, it has provided regenerative medicine with some of its earliest successes. However, as with many tissues, the defects that can be treated are currently limited in size.
A group of Japanese scientists has found that advanced glycation end products (AGEs) tend to accumulate in osteoblasts with age, inducing apoptosis via endoplasmic reticulum stress. This mechanism likely contributes to the development of osteoporosis [1]. AGEs and age Advanced glycation end-products, fittingly abbreviated as AGEs, are proteins or lipids that have had sugars attached...
