Curcumin boosts bone density

Bone loses density with age and becomes fragile, a condition called osteopenia.

In this study, 57 healthy people with low bone density participated in a standard management plan with or without 1,000 mg of curcumin per day. The plan consisted of taking vitamins C, D, and calcium supplements, plus regular exercise for 20 minutes, four times per week.

After 24 weeks, while the non-curcumin group had not improved, the curcumin group saw significant increases in bone density at the heel, small finger, and upper jaw. Doctors said taking curcumin along with an appropriate lifestyle may help delay the effects of aging on bone density.
