Bone loss can be reduced by Potassium

According to recent study, researchers have found that bone loss can be tremendously reduced by potassium supplements. Treatment for kidney stones has the spin-off of increasing bone density. Potassium citrate is often given as a treatment// for kidney stones. Hence it has been lseen, how potassium supplements affect bone density in these patients.

They looked at 15 women and men who had received potassium citrate for a period ranging from 10 to 110 months to prevent long-term kidney stone formation. It turned out that spinal bone density went up - whereas normally one expect it to decrease with this medical condition. This is the first time that potassium - rather than calcium - has been shown to have a beneficial effect on bone loss. This was just a small study - so the hope is that it can now be reproduced on a larger scale.
