Prof Marlena Kruger PhD, MSc

Professor in Nutritional Physiology

School of Food and Nutrition

Associate Dean Higher Degree Research

College of Health

Marlena is an established academic with over 95 peer reviewed publications. She is a world reknowned expert on lipids and bone health. She is also a consultant to Fonterra Brands Singapore Ltd engaging in research development and planning, strategic planning and execution of nutritional trials. Marlena obtained her PhD from the Medical University of South Africa, followed by post-doctoral training firstly at the Max Planck Institute in Heidelberg, Germany, followed by period at University of Texas at Austin, USA specialising in protein purification and identification. She thereafter was appointed as senior lecturer and later associate professor in Physiology at University of Pretoria, South Africa. She migrated to New Zealand in 2000 and established bone and nutrition research at Massey. She became Division leader for Human Nutrition in 2005, and was awarded a personal Chair in the same year. Her main focus in research include dairy foods, bioactives and lipids in bone health.

Marlena's current research focusses on food for maintaining bone and joint health and mobility. She plays a key role in the National Science Challenge High Value Nutrition and she has several international collaborators around the area of food for health and mobility.

Project Title: Phytoestrogens and bone health: the case for equol

Estrogen Replacement Therapy (ERT) has been used effectively in stabilizing skeletal bone mineral density and preventing vertebral fractures. However, data from the Women¿s Health Initiative study (WHI) indicated that long-term administration of estrogen may cause breast cancer and other undesired side effects in postmenopausal women. Thus, compliance to ERT is low and the search for alternatives is ongoing. Phytoestrogens, including isoflavones, are plant-derived estrogen-like molecules and have been considered as an alternative therapeutic agent to ERT. But the studies on bone in women have been inconsistent. This apparent lack of effect by the phytoestrogens, especially in Caucasian women, is now ascribed to the lack of metabolism of one of the isoflavones, Daidzein, to its active metabolite equol, in the intestines. Recent research in animals indicated that gut bacteria can be manipulated in order to modify the metabolism of the isoflavones in the large intestine. The purpose of this study therefore is to evaluate the effects of soybean isoflavones in combination with functional food components, including agricultural, marine and dairy products in New Zealand, on equol production and bone health in menopausal women. The final goal of this study is to establish the method for preventing osteoporosis by cooperative effects of functional foods from Japan with foods from New Zealand.

Project Title: Increased intake of vegetables and fruit: effects on bone in postmenopausal women

This project set out to determine whether an increased intake of vegetables/herbs/fruit in the diet of healthy post menopausal women would have any noticeable effect on their bone turnover markers. Bone markers are raised in women at increased risk of bone loss particularly during and after menopause. The study asked one group of 50 women to select from a range of specific vegetables/herbs/ fruit which have been determined to affect bone markers in animals but not previously trialled in humans. The group emphasising this specific range (Scarborough Fair group) was then compared with another group of 50 women also increasing their intake of vegetables/herbs/ fruit but emphasising different vegetable/herbs/fruit and a control group (43) instructed to eat their usual diet. After 3 months of regular consumption of this specific range of vegetables/herbs/fruit the Scarborough Fair group showed significantly lower bone turnover markers than the other two groups. The difference in resorption marker CTX was noticeably lower in those at increased risk of bone loss (osteopenic women). This means regular consumption of this range of fruit/vegetables and herbs lowers bone markers and therefore may result in less bone loss at midlife. This wholefood dietary strategy may prove an attractive option as it does not involve drugs, supplementation or large quantities of a single food.
