Labisia pumila Osteoporosis, Osteopenia remedy. One of the
helpful things about our global economy is that people in the West now
have greater access to Asian health practices - including information
about many natural bone building remedies.
This is a herb native to Malaysia which has proven helpful to those concerned about reversing Osteopenia and/or Osteoporosis.
As early as 2012 there were studies showing that this herb
increased bone strength. Three researchers from Malaysia published " Labisia pumila Prevents Complications of Osteoporosis by Increasing Bone Strength in a Rat Model of Postmenopausal Osteoporosis" in the Journal of Evidence Based Complementary Alternative Medicine (9/9/2012).
authors note that "Estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) is the main
treatment postmenopausal osteoporosis. However, ERT causes serious side
effects, such as cancers and thromboembolic problems......". They said that the aim of their study was to see if the herb could be effective in preserving and/or increasing bone strength.
study used the postmenopausal rat model to "determine the effects of
LPva (labisia pumila) on the bio mechanical strength of femurs exposed to
osteoporosis due to estrogen deficiency." The researchers found that
Labisia pumila supplementation improved the femoral strength of the rats.
Additional studies by these same researchers were published in 2013 and
in 2014. One of these studies showed that Labisia pumila was more effective than estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) for reversing bone loss due to post menopausal drop in estrogen!
