What is the Effect of Low Energy Availability (EA) Achieved by Diet or Exercise on Bone Turnover Markers in Active, Eumenorrheic Women?

Research Paper Title Bone metabolic responses to low energy availability achieved by diet or exercise in active eumenorrheic women. Background The researchers aimed to explore the effects of low energy availability (EA)[15 kcal·kg lean body mass (LBM)-1·d-1] achieved by diet or exercise on bone turnover markers in active, eumenorrheic women. Methods By using a crossover design,… Read More

Fighting Osteoporosis with Regular Exercise

Nearly all adults over the age of 60 have dealt with or are currently battling bone density loss. Your bones age just the same as the rest of your body and, as time goes by, the natural loss of bone material far exceeds the rate of new cell production. Bones that are broken down are… Read More

Linking Skeletons, Loading & Fractures…

Did you know that your skeleton adapts to changes in mechanical loading, altering its mass and structure to modify bone strength? Also, bone mineral density is positively related to body mass index (BMI), and alterations in body weight are accompanied by changes in bone mass that reflect the new loading environment. Low BMI is a well recognised risk factor… Read More

Bone Mineral Density: Runners vs Cyclists

Research Paper Title Participation in road cycling vs running is associated with lower bone mineral density in men. Background The effects of regular non–weight-bearing (NWB) exercise on bone health are largely unknown. The objective of the study was to determine the effects of participation in NWB sports on bone health in adult male recreational athletes. Methods Male… Read More

Linking Bone Metabolism & Density with Vitamin D Deficiency

Research Paper Title Vitamin D Deficiency and Its Influence on Bone Metabolism and Density in a Brazilian Population of Healthy Men. Abstract Vitamin D supplementation is universal for postmenopausal women, but not for elderly men, in whom osteoporosis is also commonly neglected. This study aimed to evaluate vitamin D deficiency and its association with secondary… Read More
