Yogurt intake may increase hip bone density, reduce risk of osteoporosis in older adults

The largest observational study to date of dairy intakes and bone and frailty measurements in older adults has found that increased yogurt consumption was associated with a higher hip bone density and a significantly reduced risk of osteoporosis in older women and men on the island of Ireland, after taking into account traditional risk factors.

The study led by Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, in collaboration with St James’s Hospital Dublin and co-investigators from Nutrition at Ulster University, Coleraine investigated participants from the Trinity Ulster Department of Agriculture (TUDA) aging cohort study (>5000 people).

Total hip and femoral neck bone mineral density measures in females were 3.1-3.9% higher among those with the highest yogurt intakes compared to the lowest and improvements were observed in some of the physical function measures (6.7% better). In men, the biomarker of bone breakdown was 9.5% lower in those with the highest yogurt intakes compared to the lowest. This is an indication of reduced bone turnover.

Study: Yogurt Bolsters Bone Health in Irish Adults

A new study out of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland has found positive correlation between yogurt consumption and bone health.

Considered the largest observational study of dairy intake and bone and health to date. The study focused on older adults in Ireland. The researchers found that higher hip bone density and a significantly reduced risk of osteoporosis in older populations was associated with an increased yogurt consumption after taking into account traditional risk factors.
