Bone Support, Bone Density, Osteoporosis
Bone building formula
✔ Increase bone mineral density
✔ Reduce risk of osteoporosis
✔ Plant-based calcium with 97% absorption
BoneSure is a combination of bone building vitamins and minerals targeted for reversing bone loss, with clinically proven results to increase bone mineral density and reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis. It increases collagen formation, to help maintain bones, cartilage, teeth and skin.
BoneSure contains organic calcium and magnesium from calcareous marine algae (Lithothamnion sp.). It is a plant-based, nutrient rich complete mineral complex with naturally occurring calcium, magnesium, boron, silica and 70 other trace minerals and phytonutrients. Being plant-based, the minerals are highly soluble with 97% bioavailability, translating to great mineral absorption and better bone building.
This marine plant draws calcium from sea water and pre-digests the nutrients into a matrix, so the calcium is bio-active at about 97% (using a 30 minute disintegration testing). Aquamin® is porous in nature, similar to a sponge
that has high surface area. Aquamin® also contains high levels of natural magnesium, plus other trace minerals such as copper, iron, potassium, silicon, sodium, and zinc.
Aquamin is a natural, marine-sourced multi-mineral, which is derived from the cytoskeleton of the red algal Lithothamnion spp. Over the course of the aquatic plant’s life, minerals are accumulated from the seawater, and stored as carbonate salts in the plant. 74 components have been identified in total. Other than washing and milling, Aquamin is unaltered from the raw material and as such represents a natural multi-mineral material that has FDA GRAS certification and is suitable for many food and supplement applications.
Boron is a necessary mineral for the metabolism of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium and is one of the most critical components for supporting a healthy bone matrix. Boron increases calcium absorption and studies indicate
it is required in maintaining and improving bone health and preventing postmenopausal osteoporosis.
Vitamin D3 has a large impact on bone health and is required for absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D3 works with the parathyroid to regulate calcium in the bloodstream, and is important for prevention of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and hypocalcemia. It is a necessary vitamin for the normal growth of bones and teeth. When Vitamin D3 is acquired through food, it first requires conversion by the liver and then by the kidneys, thus there is an increased risk of osteoporosis in cases of kidney or liver disorders.
Vitamin K2 is known for its role in blood clotting, however it is also essential for bone formation and repair, as it is necessary for the synthesis of osteocalcin, the protein in bone tissue in which calcium crystallizes. Vitamin K2 is both
manufactured by intestinal bacterial and can be sourced from natto which is fermented soybeans. Japanese clinical studies show impressive increases in bone mineral density with natto consumption.
Vitamin C is effective as an antioxidant, immune booster, and for collagen formation. It also has the ability to increase bone density, thus plays a role in preventing and treating osteoporosis. In a study involving 994 post-menopausal women, Vitamin C supplementation use had a beneficial effect on the levels of bone mineral density. Another study observed estrogen deficiency correlated with sub-optimal levels of antioxidants in the bone. With additional Vitamin C, estrogen levels rose in the bone marrow substantially, leading to bone loss was preventable in post-menopausal women.
Magnesium is the second most prevalent mineral in the body with a specific role in bone health. Magnesium aids in calcium metabolism and works together with calcium within the body. Calcium is one of the most important nutrients in the body. More than 99% of calcium is stored in the bones and teeth, where it supports structure and is
ready to be called to action for many other critical functions. The bones of the human body are continually remodeling, through a process of breaking down (osteoclasts) and building up (osteoblasts) with deposition of calcium into new bone formation. As one ages, the balance between bone resorption and deposition changes, with bone breakdown exceeding formation. This can lead to bone loss and an increased risk for osteoporosis.
