About resveratrol

Resveratrol is a fenolic compound. It contains two bezen rings and three hydroxyl groups attached to these. Between the benzene rings there are two carbon atoms with a double bond between. It is classified in the chemical group phytoalexins. The compound is found in many parts of several plants. It is especially abundant in red grapes.

Plants make resveratrole to protect against infection by bacteria and fungi, and the syntesis of reservatrol increases when such an attack occur or the plant is injured.

Resveratrol has anti-oxidant properties and as such help to protect against tissue damage and aging.

Experiments on simpler species with short lifespan, like insects and some fishes has shown that reservatrol increases the lifespan of these species significantly. Research on humans have not yet been fully conducted to give any conclusive results about lifespan increase due to reservatrol comsume.

Resveratrol has shown to decrease the bad effects of high fat or of bad fat in the diet in experiments with mice, for example the bad effects on the sirculatory system. The substance did not however lower the fat and colesterole content in the blood.

Experiments with mice has shown that reservatrol prevents cancer and counteracts allready existing cancer, but the effect is most significant when the substance comes directly in contact with the tissue. Therefore it is effective to counteract skin cancer with topical applyance and cancer in the digestive system. It also seems to be effective when the substance is injected directly into body cavities. It is difficult for the body to take up enough resveratrol from the digestive system into the blood circulation to significantly counteract cancer outside the digestive system.

Mouse studies has shown that resveratrol increases the condition and the ability to endure hard work. It can therefore be useful for people doing athletic activities.

Experiments on mammals has shown that resveratrol helps to protect against damages and degeneration in the nervous system, for example in the brain, including the kind of degeneration and assamblance of plaques occuring as a result of Altzheimer's disease.

About calsium and its role in the human body

As a pure element, calcium is a metal. In the body calcium exists as ions. Most of the calcium in the body is bounded to fosphate (calsium-fosphate) and is a major building component of bones. Calsium exists in the cells as soluted calsium ions, ca2+. The blood also has calcium soluted. 47% of the blood calcium is bounded to albumine proteins, 47 % is soluted calcium ions and 6% is complexed with fosphate, citrate and other anions, that is negative ions.


The role of calsium in the body


Calcium fosphate is the most important building component in bones.

The content of calsium in the cells determine the permeability of the cell membrane for other ions. The higher the calcium content, the slower will other ions go through the cell membrane. Therefore a right calsium content will hold the exitability of nerve cells at a right level.

The recommanded calcium intake for children and adults is 1200 mg per day (2.2 grams). For teenagers and pregnant women, the recommanded intake is 1500 mg per day. For lactating women 2000 mg per day is the supposed need. 200 mg per day is difficult to achieve by diet alone, and an extra surplus is necessary.


Calcium deficiency

If the concentration of calcium in the blood drops beyond normal levels, hormones from the parathyroid glands are released. These hormones make the bone tissue release calsium from the bones into the blood.

Prolonged deficit of calsium supply from the diet will therefore make the bone thinner, weaker, with low calsium density and result in easily broken bones. This condition is called osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis can also occur with normal calicum intake. A deficit in vitamin D also is a causal factor of osteoporosis, still another causal is lack of daily exercise, but there are factors not yet fully understood. A daily surplus of the recommanded calcium, plus vitamine D intake is a measure to prevent osteoporosis, and possibly also to drive the condition back. But since also other factors are in play, these measures will not always fully avoid the condition.  Daily exercise is a third measure that will increase the chance of succeeding to prevent osteoporosis.

If the calcium deficit is high, this can result in a state of deformed bones called rachitis.

Since calsium deficit makes the nerve cells more exitable, this deficit will lead to cramping, unvoluntary twisting,  higher heart rate and grimaces . With grave deficit, the heart rate can get out of control, resulting in inefficient pumping of blood and cardiac arrest.


Too high concentration of calsium

A too high concentration of blood calcium will slow down nerve impulses, leading to lethargy, muscle weakness and slow reactions. With severly increased calsium concentration, there will be dimmished conciousness, absense of reflexes and eventually coma.

About osteoporosis

By osteoporosis the mineral content of the bones, or bone mineral density, is reduced and thereby the strength and radiologic density is also reduced.

WHO operational definition of osteoporosis is a bone mass 2.5 standard deviations or more below the average for healthy, young, adult women (T-score = ¸ 2.5).

Osteoporosis gives higher risk for fractures and is defined as a systemic skeletal disease.

Patients with osteoporosis will function normally until they break a bone (established osteoporosis). Because of the high risk of breaking bones, patients with osteoporosis will often be plagued by sveral slowly healing fractures at the same time.

It is primarily women who are affected by osteoporosis. Normally a woman's skeleton is at its strongest around 25-35 years of age. Bone density remains roughly constant as the balance between breakdown (resorption) and formation (ossification / osteogenese) for about 10 subsequent years. Then follows a period of bone loss of about 0,3-0,5% per yearly. After menopause bone loss accelerates due to loss of estrogen production - it may reach up to 3 to 5% per year over a period of from 5 to 7 years. Norwegian Osteoporosis Society defines osteoporosis as loss of bone mass greater than 25%.

Pre-osteoporosis is "low bone mass," and called Osteopenia. Osteopenia is defined as bone mass in the range between 1 and 2.5 standard deviations below the mean ((¸ 1> T-score> ¸ 2.5)


Factors that contribute to reducing bone dencity

- Use of certain medications, particularly corticosteroids
- Inactivity
- Weight Loss
- Lack of vitamine D
- Lack of calcium
-Lack of estrogen (or testosterone in men) after menopause or in disease states / surgery.



Astronauts lose calcium from bones quickly because there is little pressure along the long bones. During long space missions, it has been practiced to put the legs under pressure to artificially create pressure on the bones. It is not known that such treatment is tried as a treatment for osteoporosis.


Prevention of osteoporosis

The development of osteoporosis or preventeion of it can be don eby a combination of elements:

- Training that exerts weight on the bones
- Smoking cessation
- Adequate energy intake to avoid weight loss
- Enough Calcium intake - (dairy products or supplements)
- Vitamin D intake by food rich in viatmine D (fat fish, fish oil and seafood) and by supplements.
- Exposure to sun that makes the skin produce vitamine D.


Management of osteoporosis

In the treatment of osteoporosis is the primary recommendation from the health authorities the use of food supplements of calcium and vitamin D, as well as drug therapy with bisphosphonates.

Secondarily are  recommended SERMs (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators), or estrogen supplements (for women).  In addition, now a PTH-based drug that stimulates the development of bone is available in the market.

Estrogen may be appropriate, particularly when co-treatment of menopause problems also are indicated.

Fosamax is a medicine that reduces osteoporosis. This is one of the few medications that are available in through prescription in many communities.

Exercise with walking or other use of the arms and legs provides a significant improvement in bone. Increased muscle mass seems protective of bone.
