UNLABELLED Postmenopausal women with osteopenia received green tea polyphenols (GTP) supplement and/or Tai Chi exercise for 6 months. Bone turnover biomarkers, calcium metabolism, and muscle strength were measured. This study showed that GTP supplementation and Tai Chi exercise increased bone formation biomarkers and improved bone turnover rate. Tai Chi(More)
The effect of long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) on bone measurements was evaluated in gonad-intact middle-aged male rats. Seven rats were killed on day 0 of dietary intervention to determine bone parameters at baseline. Experimental rats (7/group) were fed one of the following lipid treatments (g/kg diet): 167 g safflower oil + 33 g menhaden(More)
UNLABELLED Green tea polyphenols (GTP) are promising agents for preventing bone loss. GTP supplementation sustained microarchitecture and improved bone quality via a decrease in inflammation. Findings suggest a significant role for GTP in skeletal health of patients with chronic inflammation. INTRODUCTION This study evaluated whether GTP can restore bone(More)
BACKGROUND Very few studies have investigated differences in musculoskeletal health due to gender in a large rural population. The aim of this study is to investigate factors affecting musculoskeletal health in terms of hand grip strength, musculoskeletal discomfort, and gait disturbance in a rural-dwelling, multi-ethnic cohort. METHODS Data for 1117(More)
