Preventing Osteoporosis with Ipriflavone. – Review

Preventing Osteoporosis with Ipriflavone. – Review – book review

Vicki Elmore

By Andrea Girman, M.D., M.P.H. and Carol Poole

Are you at risk for osteoporosis? This debilitating bone disease affects an estimated 1 in 5 women over age 50. If you are not opposed to or are unsure about taking conventional hormone replacement therapy, this book is a must-read before you take any action. Ipriflavone, a soybean derivative, is being hailed as an osteoporosis breakthrough. There is compelling new evidence that ipriflavone can prevent or even reverse osteoporosis. Unlike estrogen, ipriflavone doesn’t have any effect on other parts of the body. It doesn’t stimulate cells in the breast or uterus nor has other undesirable side effects.

As part of The Natural Pharmacist series, Dr. Girman’s book cuts through the hype and gives the consumer scientific evidence about soy therapy for osteoporosis.
