NFH Osteo SAP has been formulated with copper, manganese, and zinc. This trio of essentials assists in bone metabolism as cofactors for a specific enzyme. Osteo SAP is also made with vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, trace minerals, and protein. These essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals are components of bone tissue. NFH Osteo SAP is designed to support the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. This product also helps in the development and maintenance of cartilage and gums, helps in connective tissue formation, helps in the creation of red blood cells, and supports wound healing. It is an antioxidant for the maintenance of good health.
NFH Osteo also works to prevent Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a multifactorial disease with roots in genetics, endocrine function, exercise, and nutritional habits. Osteo means “bone” and porosis, “thinning” or “becoming more porous,” together literally meaning “thinning of bones.” Adequate nutrition is critical in osteoporosis prevention and treatment.
Many nutritional factors have been examined for associations with Osteoporosis and bone mass. Calcium is essential for bone development and stability, and low calcium assimilation is believed to contribute to the development of Osteoporosis. Vitamin D is crucial for the maintenance of calcium levels and increases its uptake in the intestine. Boron is involved in calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus metabolism, contributing to the prevention of bone loss associated with Osteoporosis. Vitamin K2 from a vegetable source activates osteocalcin, the major non-collagen protein in bone, and a specific marker of bone formation.
