Ortho-Bone is an advanced bone health formula providing nutrients that are essential for mineral deposition in the bones and for regulating the excretion of excess minerals. These nutrients are very important for those with osteoporosis, osteopenia or a history of bone fractures/weakness. Included in the formula are 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 the leading formula on the market for promoting bone health and preventing osteoporosis and osteopenia.
Ortho-Bone is unique and different from other bone supplements on the market because it serves not only to reduce bone loss but to maintain or even increase bone growth. MCHC contains more than just calcium: it contains all of the minerals and proteins naturally found in bone, as well as phosphorus and growth factors that stimulate bone growth. The most effective and bio-available forms of vitamins D & K2 are found in Ortho-Bone, serving to enhance the body’s absorption and usage of calcium (lacking in other bone supplements). Vitamin C and silicon support collagen production, which builds the initial 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, post-menopausal women and elderly people in general will benefit the most from taking Ortho-Bone.
