IBS & Osteoporosis – The BMP Connection

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Osteoporosis are two of the most common conditions that integrative practitioners see among their patients. These disorders are actually related.

The common factor? Bone Morphogenic Proteins (BMPs)—a group of cytokines that play important roles in bone and joint homeostasis as well as in GI mucosal integrity.

In this free webinar, Cynthia Worden, DO, will explore the connections between IBS and Osteoporosis, and share new insights into the dual role of Bone Morphogenic Proteins in supporting patients with GI and bone health issues.

She’ll also describe her clinical experience with Ostinol®–the only BMP-complex available for oral supplementation.

During this webinar, you’ll learn about: 

  • The epidemiological relationship between IBS and Osteoporosis—and the rising rates of both conditions
  • The discovery of BMPs, their structure, and their function within Demineralized Bone Matrix
  • Mechanisms of action and observed clinical impact of BMPs
  • The practical benefits of BMPs in supporting patients with IBS and Osteoporosis
  • Case studies & clinical experience with Cyplexinol® Musculoskeletal Regenerative Nutrition
