Erxian Osteoporosis herb : a Chinese herbal formula used to treat bone loss 

Erxian Osteoporosis herb. In 2017 a study was published in Clinical Interventions Aging concerning the use of Erxian Osteoporosis herb. The authors of the study reviewed six databases for studies about Erizian.  They found eight trials that had included 644 patients whose results showed favorable effects of Erxian Osteoporos herb for improving Bone Minderal Density of the lumbar spine and the femoral great truchanter.

Data: "lumbar spine (mean difference [MD]: 0.05 [0.03, 0.06]; I2=0%; P<0.00001) and the bone mineral density of the femoral great trochanter (MD: 0.06 [0.02, 0.10]; I2=59%; as compared to using caltrate  tablets and calcitriol alone."  Note: caltrate tablets are calcium tablets ; calcitriol is the hormonally active metabolite of vitamin D.

The authors concluded: "The study provides suggestive evidence of the superiority of EXD (Erxian ) monotherapy or combination therapy over basic supplements for treating osteoporosis. However,evidence remains weak. More rigorously designed and measured,  randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled trials with larger sample size are needed to verify the current conclusions." 

An earlier, 2016 study titled: "Er-Xian Decoction Stimulates  Osteoblastic Differentiation of Bone Mesenchymal Stem Cells in  Ovariectomized  Mice and Its Gene Profile Analysis  that was published in Stem Cells International in 2016. The conclusion of this study stated that Erxian "exerts an osteogenic effect on bone minderal density in OVX induced osteoporotic mice."

These are the only studies I could find. I list them so that those who considering  Traditional Chinese Medicine's approach to reversing bone loss can know that this herb does have scientific studies to support its use for building bones.
