  • 1. Study Linked Vitamin C to Reduced Bone Loss Vitamin C may have protective effects against osteoporosis, according to a new study on mice. The research involved two sets of mice to determine if vitamin C may help prevent bone loss. The first set of mice has had their ovaries removed, a laboratory ploy known to lower bone density, while the second set had “sham” ovary removal surgery, which did not decrease their bone density. One group was supplemented with large doses of vitamin Cover a period of eight weeks, and the second non-supplemented group. Thestudy team found those mice not receiving the vitamin C supplementationhad a much lower bone mineral density (BMD). Furthermore, this studyshows that large doses of vitamin C actively stimulate bone formation toprotect the skeleton. Vitamin C could provide a natural method to maintainbone health without the use of expensive and dangerous pharmaceuticals inmany aging adults at risk for osteoporosis.Read more: Vitamin C Might Be an Effective Alternative to Fosamax:Study
