Osteoporosis is the most common type of bone disease characterized by reduced bone mass, micro architectural detoriation of bone tissues and increased risk of fracture. This debilitating condition is likely to affect 1 in 3 women and 1 in 12 men over the age of 50. The most common type of osteoporosis is the bone loss associated with ovarian hormone deficiency at menopause.
Bone is a living tissue that is constantly being built. Bone mass increases during skeletal growth to reach a peak between the age of 20 – 25 years. However with age, bone starts losing some of its minerals and proteins causing problems like bone fracture, osteoporosis, low back pain, joint pain and troubles with nail, hair and teeth. Osteoporosis is also called a silent disease as it often goes unnoticed until a minor fall causes an unexpected fracture.
According to Ayurveda, bone loss, weakened bones or osteoporosis can occur due to improper transmission of nutrients between bone tissues referred to as Srothodushti of Asthidhatu caused by Vatakshaya. This condition can be remedied.
Reosto is a preparation of herbs and minerals formulated according to Ayurvedic principles for maintaining bone health. It boosts calcium levels, sustains bone mass, reverses bone loss, hypogonadism and also increases estrogen and progesterone secretion. Estrogen the breaking down of bone tissue while progesterone stimulates the formation of new bone.
Several studies have been conducted with Reosto which shown that after taking Reosto, serum calcium levels increased and total bone loss was reduced. Common symptoms of osteoporosis such as backache and leg pain were also reduced.
