8. Osteoporosis

a. A study conducted on Ovariectomized rats (who typically lose substantial bone mineral density after the ovariectomy) were used as a model for postmenopausal osteoporosis. It was found that the addition of a 7% oryzanol rice bran oil (RBO) concentrate to the diets of ovariectomized rats resulted in less bone loss at several bone sites than control rats.
