Vitamin E tocotrienols may soon be sharing the platform with other bone health supplements, suggests a recent study using American River Nutrition’s DeltaGold® annatto tocotrienol supplement with or without statins in osteoporotic rats. Hadley, MA (PRWEB) September 17, 2013 Annatto tocotrienol – mainly composed of delta-tocotrienol – given with or without statins stimulated bone formation and cut back bone decay in a postmenopausal osteoporosis rat model, according to findings...

Genetic Link Found Between Fat And Bone Mass
2013-03-12 11:09:01

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers at Tel Aviv University (TAU) have uncovered a direct genetic link between fat and bone mass — a discovery that they claim brings the medical community one step closer to understanding how both types of tissues are interconnected on a biological level. Genetics play an important role in the composition of the human body, and can play a key role in whether or not a person becomes obese or develops osteoporosis,...

Pinpointing The Origin Of Bone Fractures

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Engineering Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Pinpoint the Origin of Bone Fractures A new study from engineering researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute shows, for the first time, how the little-understood protein osteocalcin plays a significant role in the strength of our bones. The findings could lead to new strategies and therapeutics for fighting osteoporosis and lowering the risk of bone fracture. Funded by the U.S. National...

New study shows intake of olive oil associated with increase in bone formation markers A study to be published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism (JCEM) shows consumption of a Mediterranean diet enriched with olive oil for two years is associated with increased serum osteocalcin concentrations, suggesting a protective effect on bone. Age-related bone mass loss and decreased bone strength affects women and men alike are an important determinant of...

Cells in bone, fat and the pancreas appear to be talking to each other and one thing they likely are saying is, "Get moving." A small study of obese children enrolled in after-school exercise programs showed 12 weeks of vigorous exercise resulted in stronger bones, improved insulin sensitivity (reduced diabetes risk) and less of the most-deadly belly, or visceral, fat, Georgia Health Sciences University researchers report. It also indicated that blood levels of the hormone osteocalcin,...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ Scientists have discovered an unexpected connection between a hormone produced in bone and male fertility.  The study illustrates that the skeletal hormone known as osteocalcin boosts testosterone production to support the survival of the germ cells that go on to become mature sperm.According to Gerard Karsenty of Columbia University, the findings in mice offer the foremost evidence that the skeleton controls reproduction through the production of hormones....

Researchers have discovered an unexpected connection between a hormone produced in bone and male fertility.  The study shows that the skeletal hormone known as osteocalcin boosts testosterone production to support the survival of the germ cells that go on to become mature sperm. The researchers said the findings, which were reported in the February 18th issue of Cell, provide the first evidence that the skeleton controls reproduction through the production of hormones. According to...

Our bones have much greater influence on the rest of our bodies than they are often given credit for, according to two new studies in the July 23 issue of Cell, a Cell Press publication. Both studies offer new insights into the interplay between bone and blood sugar, based on signals sent via insulin and a bone-derived hormone known as osteocalcin. Mice whose bones can't respond to insulin develop high blood sugar and insulin resistance, both hallmarks of diabetes. Those symptoms are tied to...

A new study by Johns Hopkins researchers has found that insulin, the sugar-regulating hormone, is required for normal bone development and that it may provide a link between bone health and metabolic disease, such as diabetes. The study, headed by Thomas Clemens, Ph.D., the Lewis Cass Spencer Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, and published online in the journal Cell, identified a unique communication between bone and pancreas cells through which insulin signaling in osteoblasts "” cells...

Study boosts researchers' hopes of using osteocalcin to treat diabetes Rube Goldberg"”the cartoonist who devised complex machines for simple tasks"”would have smiled at one of leptin's mechanisms for curbing insulin release. As Hinoi et al. show, the fat-derived hormone enlists the sympathetic nervous system to prevent bone-making cells from releasing a molecule that prods the pancreas to discharge insulin. The study will appear online December 22, 2008 and in the December 29,...
