Introduction. Excessive physical activity can lead to an early aging and degenerative disease such as osteoporosis characterized by decreasing bone density and the number of osteoblasts and increasing the number of osteoclasts. This study aimed to examine the activity of grapes ethanol extract to prevent bone damage in overtraining-induced rats.

Methods. The study design was experimental research using a completely randomized posttest-only control group design. Subjects were 36 male albino rats, aged 2.5 months, weighing 180-200 grams divided randomly into two groups. Control group (n= 18) was treated with overtraining + placebo for three weeks and the treatment group (n= 18) was treated with overtraining + 1.25 g/kgBW grapes ethanol extract for three weeks.

Results. The result showed that the average number of osteoblasts in the control group after treatment was 125.44 ± 7.770 cells per field of view, while in the treatment group was 137.06 ± 12.037 cells per field of view (p<0.01). The control group's bone density was lower than the treatment group (308.84 ± 17.195 vs. 438.11 ± 25.940 μm, p<0.01). In contrast, the number of osteoclasts in the control group after 14 days was higher than the treatment group (19.89 ± 3.411 vs. 13.33 ± 4.485 cells per field of view, p<0.01).

Conclusion. This study suggests that grape extract's antioxidant capacity can prevent a bone defect in the overtraining-induced rat.
