Probiotic Supplementation May Curtail Spine Bone Loss in Postmenopausal Women


Following menopause, women lose bone from the spine at a rate that is several times faster than that in men of the same age or premenopausal women. A new study has found that a probiotic supplementation that contains three Lactobacillusstrains may help minimize spine bone loss in postmenopausal women.





Researchers from the University of Gothenburg recruited 249 health, postmenopausal women to participate in the study. Half of them received a probiotic treatment containing Lactobacillus paracasei DSM 13434, Lactobacillus plantarum DSM 15312, and Lactobacillus plantarum DSM 15313 once daily for 12 months. The other half received a placebo. Lumbar spine bone mineral density was measured at baseline and at the end of the study period.





Participants in the control group saw a significant loss of lumbar spine bone mineral density (0.72%). In comparison, participants in the probiotic group saw no loss of bone mineral density.The study was published on November 1, 2019 in the journalLancet Rheumatology
