Treatment Offered   

Different herbal drugs reported for their effect on the management of osteoporosis were compiled from published research articles. The available data are arranged according to their Sanskrit name, English name, botanical identity and partly used. The mechanism of action of reported drugs is analyzed critically and presented systematically.


 Analysis of data reveals that about 11 different drugs mentioned in classical texts of Ayurveda are reported for their anti-osteoporotic properties in different clinical and experimental studies (Table 1) Clinically Nigella sativa is reported for its effect on the bone
markers of postmenopausal women. Different parts of the plants like Withania somnifera, Cissus quadrangularis, Punica granatum, Tinospora cordifolia, Curcuma longa, Nigella sativa, Melia azedarach, Asparagus racemosus, Moringa oleifera, Zingiber officinale, and Sesamum indicum are studied experimentally and found effective in the management of osteoporosis.


Osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disorder characterized by reduced bone mass and osteoporotic fracture. This condition seriously hampers the quality of life of individuals and needs an effective treatment measure without any adverse effect. Different single herbal drugs mentioned in Ayurveda showed significant results in the improvement of osteoporotic changes. All these drugs are easily available, simple for administration, and devoid of any adverse reactions. Further clinical studies can be planned to establish their
role in the effective management of osteoporosis in clinical practice.
