It is learned from Table.2: ALP of the ovariectomized rats rises from 115 (U/L) to 202 (U/L), which reflects osteoporosis. After the rats are fed with the high-magnesium concentrated liquid of the first embodiment, ALP is significantly lowered to 125 (U/L), which indicates that the high-magnesium concentrated liquid of the first embodiment can effectively improve osteoporosis. From the test results of BUN, CRE, GOT and GPT, it is learned: feeding the high-magnesium concentrated liquid does not affect the functions of livers and kidneys of the rats of the experiment groups. From Table.3, it is learned: feeding the high-magnesium concentrated liquid does not generate negative effects on the serum.

In addition to the serum examinations, the bone densities and the trabecula images of the rats of the experiment groups, control group and comparison groups are observed with a micro computed tomography (Micro-CT) technology, as shown in FIGS. 2A-2F and FIGS. 3A-3F. FIGS. 2A-2F are respectively the images of the bone densities of the rats of Experiment Group I, Experiment Group II, Experiment Group III, Control Group, Comparison Group I, and Comparison Group II. FIGS. 3A-3F are respectively the trabecula images of the rats of Experiment Group I, Experiment Group II, Experiment Group III, Control Group, Comparison Group I, and Comparison Group II. It can be observed in FIGS. 2A-2C: the rats of the experiment groups and the control group have higher bone density. It can be observed in FIG. 2E and FIG. 2F: the rats of the comparison groups have lower bone density. It can be observed in FIGS. 3A-3C: the rats of the experiment groups and the control group have more compact trabecula distribution. It can be observed in FIG. 3E and FIG. 3F: the rats of the comparison groups have less compact trabecula distribution.

With respect to the high-magnesium concentrated liquid of the second embodiment, middle-aged males are used in the experiment groups, and the young males are used in the control group. The exercise performance and numbers of red blood cells (RBCs) before, during and after exercise are measured, as shown in FIG. 4 and FIGS. 5A-5G. FIG. 4 shows the exercise performances of the experiment group and the control group, which take the high-magnesium concentrated liquid of the second embodiment and the placebo (PLA). The high-magnesium potable water taken by the experiment group is formulated to be potable water having a hardness of 600. It can be observed in FIG. 4: the exercise endurance performance of the control group taking the high-magnesium concentrated liquid does not improve but lowers by about 4.77%; the exercise endurance performance of the experiment group taking the high-magnesium concentrated liquid improves significantly and increases by about 7.36%.

FIG. 5A and FIG. 5C shows the numbers of RBCs measured before exercise, after exercise, and two hours later after exercise for the experiment group and the control group, which take the high-magnesium concentrated liquid and PLA. FIG. 5B and FIG. 5D respectively show the areas under the curves of FIG. 5A and FIG. 5C. FIG. 5E and FIG. 5G shows the total hemoglobin (tHB) measured before exercise, after exercise, and two hours later after exercise for the experiment group and the control group, which take the high-magnesium concentrated liquid taking and PLA. FIG. 5F and FIG. 5H respectively show the areas under the curves of FIG. 5E and FIG. 5G. From the drawings, it can be observed: for the control group, taking the high-magnesium concentrated liquid and PLA does not influence RBCs and tHB; for the experiment group, taking the high-magnesium concentrated liquid significantly increases the number of RBCs and the value of tHB, however. The decrease of RBCs of the experiment group taking PLA may be attributed to hemolysis induced by exercise. Hemolysis impairs oxygen transportation, inhibits RBC-mediated vasorelaxation, and thus adversely affects the performance of exercise. The trend of tHB is similar to RBCs. Therefore, it is inferred: the high-magnesium concentrated liquid of the second embodiment can relieve the exercise-induced hemolysis and thus can enhance the exercise endurance of middle-aged males.

In conclusion, the compositions of the high-magnesium concentrated liquids of the present invention are experimentally proved to have the function of improve osteoporosis or relieve fatigue.

The present invention has been demonstrated in detail with the above embodiments. However, these embodiments are only to exemplify the present invention but not to limit the scope of the present invention. Any equivalent modification or variation according to the specification or claim of the present invention is to be also included within the scope of the present invention.
