Estrogen and taurine effects on IL-1 and IL-6 and bone

Research indicates that estrogen stops bone resorption by inhibiting IL-1 and IL-6. Taurine also inhibts IL-1 and IL-6 formation. Post-menopause taurine levels decline. Increased bone resorption post-menopaus could partly be due to reductions is taurine levels which increase IL-1 and IL-6. Supplemental taurine could have an estrogen-like effect on bone.
