Ferroptosis is a newly discovered non-apoptotic cell death whose key is lipid peroxidation. It has been reported that ferroptosis is involved in the occurrence and development of tumors and nervous system and musculoskeletal diseases. Cellular ferroptosis contributes to the imbalance of bone homeostasis and is involved in the development of osteoporosis; however, the detailed mechanism of which is still unclear though it may provide a new direction for anti-osteoporosis. The current drugs used in the treatment of osteoporosis, such as bisphosphonates and teriparatide, have many side effects, increasing people's search for natural compounds to treat osteoporosis. This review paper briefly summarizes the current research regarding the mechanisms of ferroptosis and natural anti-osteoporosis compounds targeting its pathway.
