Ortho•Bone is an advanced bone health formula providing nutrients that are fundamental for mineral deposition in bone and for regulating the excretion of minerals. These nutrients are very important for those with osteoporosis, osteopenia or a history of bone fractures. Ingredients include a superior source of calcium, microcrystalline hydroxyapatite complex (MCHC) from New Zealand bovine bone, vitamins C, D3, K2, B12 and folate, and minerals boron, magnesium, manganese, silicon, zinc and copper. Together, these ingredients provide one of the best formulas available for promoting bone health and preventing osteoporosis and osteopenia.
Ortho•Bone is unique because it serves not only to reduce bone loss but to maintain or even increase bone growth. MCHC contains more than calcium: it contains all of the minerals and proteins found in bone, is rich in phosphorus, and provides growth factors that stimulate bone growth. The most effective forms of vitamins D & K2 are found in Ortho•Bone, serving to enhance the body’s absorption and usage of calcium. Vitamin C and silicon support collagen production, which builds the framework for bone. Magnesium makes up a large part of the bone mineral matrix; boron reduces magnesium loss; trace minerals manganese, zinc and copper are co-factors for enzymes involved in bone metabolism. Vitamins B12 and folate help reduce homocysteine, a metabolic byproduct that is thought to be toxic to bone fibers.
Ortho•Bone is a serious bone health product for serious bone health support, with a dose of 10 capsules per day delivering 1000 mg of calcium. Those with osteoporosis or osteopenia, frail post-menopausal women and elderly people in general will benefit the most from taking Ortho•Bone.
