Ostivone

Has anyone tried Ostivone? It was mentioned in a discussion yesterday. That was the first I had heard of it. I did some reading on it and it could be an option.

Looking on line for information, nothing seems available except from for profit sites. So hard to evaluate its impact

ditto-had never heard of it before. One study did show that it might reverse and stop some bone loss. Most of the sites sell it so am not sure how reliable that is. Anyone that has info on this would be interested in it.

Last night I spent quite alot of time trying to find some info on Ostivone. I found some comments at www.evitamins.com under side effects that stated that approx 22% of people who took it had a 22-29% reduction in lymphocytes (white blood cells) that fight off viral infections. My white blood cell count has always been at the low end of the normal range so I will have to really think about it. I also read that it could take two years once you are off the Ostivone to get your white blood cell count back to normal. From what I understand, it is supposed to help your bones absorb the calcium.

Here are two sites on it:

Well, I can't say for sure it is promising, only because most of hte links are by for profit groups trying to see the stuff, but no studiesas to impact. I would discuss it with a pharmacist if you plan on taking it. I don't find enough information to really evaluate it independently;
