The Bone Team
OrthoÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¢BoneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ contains key nutrients that are fundamental to maintaining bone health and preventing disorders like osteoporosis. MCHC (bone meal) is the most superior source of calcium available, containing proteins that actually stimulate bone growth and being the safest for arterial health. Vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption. Vitamin K2 (MK-4 & MK-7) increases bone density and reduces the risk of bone fracture. Vitamin C supports collagen development, which is the foundation of bone structure.
Small doses of other nutrients are also important for bone health. Boron decreases calcium excretion. Magnesium is needed for a strong bone matrix. Manganese, zinc, copper and silicon have bone building abilities. Vitamin B12 and folic acid regulate homocysteine, which is toxic to protein fibers in the bone.
The Right Balance
Maintaining bone health involves much more than just calcium and requires a delicate balance of many essential nutrients. Unlike most calcium supplements that just maintain bone, OrthoÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¢BoneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ actually stimulates bone growth and mineralization. OrthoÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¢BoneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ contains all the key ingredients at the appropriate doses to keep bones in optimal condition. OrthoÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¢BoneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ is also available in a vegan-friendly formula that helps maintain bone health, providing instead calcium citrate-malate and vitamin D2.
