Abstract

Evidence for Bone Reversal Properties of a Calcium- Collagen Chelate, a Novel Dietary Supplement

Menopause drastically increases the risk of osteoporosis, and although drug therapies are available, having an efficacious dietary supplement as an adjuvant therapy or alternative is desirable. Recent findings suggest that a calcium-collagen chelate (CC) in the form of a dietary supplement is highly effective in improving bone mass in osteopenic rats. Therefore, we hypothesized that the consumption of CC reverses bone loss in postmenopausal women with osteopenia as early as three months.
