Osteopenia Causes, Symptoms and Herbal Treatment


Bones are the important parts of our body that make the body skeleton. Many body functions are done through these bones and many internal body mechanisms are carried out by bones and the bone marrow inside them. Bone and bone marrow found inside the bones has the main function in the body’s defense mechanism. Any abnormality in the bones lays to abnormalities in those functionings too. Bone density makes and defines the bone quality, that is necessary for its normal functioning and body posture. It usually begins at the age of 40 to 50 years. Menopausal women are at risk of this bone mineral deficiency. Left untreated conditions have complications that are hard to treat.

We will discuss in detail the ayurvedic medicines for their herbal management.



The low bone mineral density that can cause fracture occurring chances in the body is known as Osteoporosis. Osteopenia should not be understood as a disease rather it is an abnormal symptom that arises due to an abnormality in the body that occurs due to decreasing bone density in your body. Untreated osteopenia condition can lead to more complications and most commonly it causes osteoporosis.

A person with osteopenia is at risk of getting a fracture, a little hit, sudden fall, or unintentional trauma could lead to a fracture. General weakness can be seen while the shedding bone mass can lead to un-noticed height loss.
