Osteoporosis Reversed Using This Common SupplementYour doctor has probably told you that there is no cure for osteoporosis.

There are some things a good doctor will recommend to slow down its progression (such as calcium, vitamin D, and exercises). But reverse it? Sorry, no.

However, a new study published in the journal Nutrients does give new hope.

Apparently, a common supplement found in all supermarkets drastically boosts your bone production, improving or even reversing osteoporosis.

Your body renews its bones throughout your life to keep them strong. This process literally involves breaking down your old bones and forming new ones to replace them.

Osteoporosis is a bone disease in which your body breaks down bones faster than it rebuilds them. This is especially common in postmenopausal women due to reduced secretion of estrogen, although osteoporosis often happens to men as well.

The authors of the new study found that some researchers had recommended taking ginseng based on some limited research, so they decided to investigate its effectiveness properly through a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, which is the strongest type of scientific study.

They recruited 90 people with osteopenia, the precursor to osteoporosis, in which bones are already being broken down too fast.

They divided the participants into three groups: one that received one gram of ginseng daily, one that received three grams of ginseng per day, and another that received a placebo or fake treatment.

The subjects received a variety of blood tests and bone density scans before and after the 12-week study. The blood tests checked for chemicals and vitamins that indicate bone formation and bone destruction.

After the 12 weeks, the researchers found that the ginseng was indeed effective at promoting new bone formation.

The group that took three grams of ginseng daily had higher levels of calcium and osteocalcin in their blood, which are the most definitive indicators of bone formation. They also showed improvements in their urine deoxypyridinoline scores, also indicating bone formation.

Osteocalcin is produced by osteoblasts, the cells that build new bone. It appears inside the bones, but around one third of it is released into the blood. That is why it is such a strong indicator of new bone formation. Osteocalcin works in combination with calcium, the mineral that actually provides the building blocks for new bones.

Perhaps the most important thing about this study is that it confirms what I have been preaching for years: You can indeed rebuild your bones naturally even if you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis! Thousands of readers have already done that.

But ginseng is only one piece of the puzzle. To completely reverse osteoporosis, you need to follow the simple lifestyle changes explained hereā€¦
