Osteoporosis is a serious health problem in the population, mainly for
postmenopausal women.
Therefore, it is important to develop programs to decrease
The main objective of this study is to determine the influence of
phytate consumption on bone mineral density.
The bone mineral density was evaluated in postmenopausal women by
means of dual X-ray double energy absorptiometry for calcaneous (C),
lumbar spine (LS) and femoral neck (FN).
The results obtained were related to the consumption of phytate by
means of a dietary questionnaire.In the three different areas (C, LS,
FN) we observed significantly higher values of T-score in women that
consumed adequate amounts of phytate as opposed to those that did not,
(C 0.1 vs. -0.5, LS -1.2 and -2.5 and FN -0.2 and -1.2).
There is also an increase in the T-score as more phytate is consumed,
up to a maximum of two times a week (C -0.7 in non consumers, -0.2 in
those that consume phytate once a week and 0.2 in those that consume
phytate twice a week; LS -2.8, -1.7 and 1.1 and finally, CF -1.3, -0.6
and -0.1).
The results obtained seem to indicate that the adequate consumption of
phytate may play an important role in the prevention of bone mineral
density loss in postmenopausal women.
