Bone health: The Ancient Chinese Remedy That Helps Build Bone Density And Speed Up The Healing Time Of Fractures

Date: 5 June, 2001

A 3,000-year-old Chinese herbal bone health formula that has recently been launched in the UK looks set to fill the void left by the inadequate, even dangerous, conventional bone-building drugs, like Fosamax, weve had to rely on for so long.

And when we say it boosts bone health, were not just talking about osteoporosis: The reports HSI have read claim that this remedy can actually heal bone fractures in as little as three weeks literally half the usual healing time.

It has produced remarkable results in clinical trials and is now routinely used in many of Chinas most prestigious hospitals. The formula, marketed under the name Osteoking, includes astralagus root, Asian ginseng root, safflower, tienchi ginseng root, Eucommia bark, tangerine peel, and purified water.

Taken individually, these ingredients each have their own benefits, yet combined in the manner and ratios found in Osteoking, they appear to have a more specialised bone-building action.

Targets what the Chinese believe is the most important organ for maintaining bone health
A lot of the material and research discussing bone health from a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) point of view, talks about the importance of the kidneys a vital Qi (life force) organ.

Healthy kidneys convert a hormone called calcitriol, which enables your body to absorb calcium, to its active form of vitamin D. When your kidneys are not working well, they start to make less calcitriol so even if you eat calcium, your body cant absorb it. Thats when your parathyroid hormone (PTH) kicks in to make sure you always have enough calcium in your blood.

PTH is produced by several small, bean-like parathyroid glands in your neck whose job is to tell your bones to release calcium into your bloodstream. Over time, this process can actually weaken your bones.

Understanding this important link, it makes sense that some of Osteokings individual ingredients astragalus, ginseng, and Eucommia bark are known for their tonic effects on the kidneys. But Osteoking also has more direct effects on bone formation.

Why you should pay special attention to your bone health if youre 50+
To get a better idea of how Osteoking works, it helps to know more about the actual structure of your bones and how theyre made. Two types of bone cells are involved in the bone-building process: osteoclasts and osteoblasts.

The osteoclasts break down existing bone to make way for new bone. After the osteoclasts do their work, the osteoblasts trigger the bone-building thats necessary to replace the bone that has been lost. From childhood until around the age of 30, the osteoblasts work harder than the osteoclasts, which means more bone is built than lost.

For a while, the osteoclasts and the osteoblasts work pretty evenly, but around the age of 50, the osteoclasts begin to outpace the osteoblasts, which means more bone is lost than is newly made. This is what causes bone density to decrease.

An animal study conducted at Kunming Medical Colleges Department of Orthopedics in China, has shown that Osteoking is able to improve bone health by boosting levels of osteoblasts. Researchers studied three groups: one group received no treatment, one received a saline/model treatment, and the remaining group received Osteoking.

In the no-treatment group, researchers noted that the bone cells were normal. In the saline/model group, the bone tissue deteriorated and even showed some bleeding. But in the Osteoking group, more osteoblasts were seen, along with more calcium salt deposits. The bone in the saline/model group was also soft and easily cut, while the Oseteoking groups bone was dense and hard to cut.1

98% improvement in fracture healing following the use of Osteoking
Several human clinical trials have also shown promising results. HSI reviewed a copy of the final report on the treatment of 60 cases of traumatic fracture with Osteoking from the Department of Orthopaedics at the Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Kunming City.

The clinical evaluation showed that Osteoking reduced swelling by 95 per cent and improved fracture healing by over 98 per cent. It also appeared to be 98 per cent effective as an analgesic (pain-killer).2

In another study carried out at the Department of Orthopaedics in the 59th Central Hospital of the Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) in China, researchers studied the effects of Osteoking in 60 people, all with traumatic fractures documented by X-rays.

Study subjects in the Osteoking group took 25ml of Osteoking every other day for 12 days. The control group subjects took four capsules of a formula called Yushangling three times per day for 24 days.

At the end of the study, the researchers concluded that: The efficiency rates of analgesic, repercussion, and fracture union of the Osteoking group were more significant than those of the Yushangling capsule group. The Osteoking formula demonstrates improved effects on the union of fractures. It could shorten the time required for such a union to occur.3

Taking Osteoking could avoid the need for painful hip replacement operations
Researchers at the Kunming Medical College have studied Osteokings ability to combat bone necrosis (when bone erodes or slowly dies). The researchers administered the suggested dosage of Osteoking (25ml taken every other day at bedtime) to subjects needing treatment for necrosis of the hip. The duration of treatment varied depending on the state of illness of each subject, ranging from 180 days to 720 days, and was combined with a course of exercise.

Of these cases, 51 subjects had necrosis in both hips and 25 had necrosis in just one hip, which makes for a grand total of 127 hips that the researchers evaluated. Among the 127 hips, 105 showed good results from the treatment.

And only three of the 15 severe cases went on to receive hip replacement operations. While not all subjects experienced these results, after half a year to one year of taking Osteoking, many showed repair and changes around the necrosis region.4

What to take for best results
The recommended dosage is one bottle (25 ml) of Osteoking taken every other day at bedtime your bodys natural regeneration period. For best results, it is recommended that you take it for at least one month.

Contraindications: No adverse effects have been reported following Osteokings use at the recommended dosage. However, it is not recommended for use by pregnant woman, those with mental disease, glaucoma, or anyone suffering from heart, lung or kidney failure or excessive bleeding.

      Thank you for your comment,

      It sounds as if you have a lot to cope with and osteoking (and osteowonder) may not be able to help you with your symptoms. The best we can recommend is that you get in contact with the manufacturer of the product (we don’t sell it ourselves) though their website: http://www.osteomedicine.com/

    I have AVN femoral head. Took Osteoking for a few months, then had to move a couple times but want to start it again. Didn’t have comparative xrays to tell whether my first round had helped or not…but I liked it. I think it did help with pain and mobility. Good luck.
    ps. It looks like if you order it from China and you order 3 boxes they will give you the fourth for free…and free shipping to US too I think….

  28. Becky Posted August 18, 2009

    I am 28 years old and have AVN in both knees, and I am suspecting my hips as well. I am looking for ANYONE who has tried Osteoking….

  29. Holley Posted July 10, 2009

    I am 50 years old and was recently told I have AVN of the hips. I have just had major surgery to take out a dermoid from my ovary and now I am going to get an MRI to confirm and find out what needs to be done about my hips. I was told that surgery – drilling holes in my femoral heads – may help, otherwise hip replacement may be needed. I do not want to go through surgery again if I don’t have to and I am looking into alternatives to assist me. Would osteo King help me?

  30. freya koss Posted June 15, 2009

    Has anyone with AVN and osteoarthritis of the femoral head taken Osteo King and improved their condition? If so, how long did you take the product before improvement?

    Thank you

  34. LOUIS Posted March 3, 2009

    I am 62 years old with a very active job building wooden houses.
    For the past year I am experiencing problems with both hips and knees.
    My mother died of osteoporosis.
    At present I can hardly walk , because of my one hip
    I have just been to a doctor and X ray scanning
    I cant send you the report because it is in Afrikaans
    But what it said is —–

    My back there is no problems , but slight signs of osteoporosis

    Right hip joint , advanced osteoporosis with completed deleting of the joint space and the head of the femur is going flat

    Left hip joint , signs of osteoporosis with also narrowing of the hip gap

    They suggested that I go for Prolotherapy injections or joint replacements
    I hate the idea. On Prolotherapy the healing succes is only 80%.


  35. Pat Posted January 22, 2009

    I have 2 leaky Heart Valves it’s called Aortic Insufficiency). I don’ take any medication for this. I am 77 years old. Would this product be allright for me to take?

  36. Gretjen Posted January 21, 2009

    where is osteoking available in the U.S.?

  37. Robert Posted January 21, 2009

    A very interesting report but for those such as myself, with heart probs it obviously isn’t suitable.
    Although I have no knowledge of its effect on Osteoporosis, as far as fractures are concerned the Homoeopathic remedy Symphytum in a low potency heals broken bones phenomenally quickly,as a lay homoeopath I’ve administered it on several occasions over the years and it certainly does what it says on the tin!

  38. nelia Posted October 29, 2008

    my mother(86 yrs) had fracture and dislocated hip. She couldn’t walk and became bedridden since July’08. Doctor said she has osteoporosis . she also had a fall. She doesn’t want any surgery. Can she take osteoking?

  39. nelia Posted October 29, 2008

    my mothe(86 yrs) had fracture and dislocated hip. she couldnt walk and became bedridden since July’08. Doctor said she has osteoperosis . she also had a fall. She doesnt want any surgery. Can she take osteoking?

  40. vvanhauw@gmail.com Posted October 23, 2008

    I had a severe (humerus) fracture beginning this year and ordered Osteoking directly from the Chinese pharmaceutical company. Very good service. In my case, Osteoking helped very well healing the fracture. Humerus fracture need a lot of time to heal 3 to 5 months as the process of calcium creation goes very slowly for these types of fractures. I started taking osteoking after the first month (when the X-rays showed a minor improvement). One month later the doctor was very surpised on the healing process. I was removed from plaster could start my excercices to gain back the movement in my arm.
    I had very positive experience with osteoking and can only recommand it.
    Mail me in case you have any question.

  41. jon Posted September 15, 2008
