A low energy fracture is breaking a bone easily, for instance from a fall that would have no consequence in most people. This occurs in osteoporosis and some say in the forerunner to osteoporosis known as osteopenia where bone is not at an optimally healthy level but not truly thinned and weakened yet either. Low-energy fractures of the hip, forearm, shoulder and spine are known consequences of osteoporosis; the brittle bone condition.
This is a summary of a symposium on the role of nutrients for treating alcoholic liver disease (ALD). The participants were the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in collaboration with various departments from the National Institutes of Health. Supplementing these patients with SAMe may lessen ALD by decreasing inflammation and free radical damage, by improving Glutathione activity and decreasing the level of the substrate known as s-adenosylhomocysteine or SAH; the direct precursor to homocysteine in the liver.
Previously researchers from France have shown that the Olive Leaf Polyphenols Oleuropein and Hydroxytyrosol have a beneficial effect on bone by decreasing inflammation within the bone. Later animal study findings supported these findings. In this newly published study scientists from Arizona State University in Tempe gave patients either a high-polyphenol Olive Extract 400mg per day for 8 weeks or inactive placebo.
Researchers split 225 hospitalized and acutely ill older patients into two groups, one group received a placebo daily for six-weeks and the other group received a Multiple-vitamins, Mineral supplement daily; both along with the hospital diet. The average age of the patients was 75.6 years. At the end of the six-week period those on the Multiple-Vitamin Mineral supplement had improved levels of important vitamins whereas those on placebo had a drop in these same nutrients.
