Strong Bones help you build and maintain stronger bones.
Strong bones contain the proper form of calcium (MCHA) from New Zealand, with cofactors for immediate absorption for the prevention of osteoporosis.
Bones are indeed amazing. They serve as a frame for our bodies and protect key locations. Bones also form several important biological roles as well; these include the creation of blood, storage for nutrients, and being a medium of detoxification. It is important to support strong bones and bone growth; this is especially true for women, who are four times more likely to suffer from osteoporosis. As women age, changes in their estrogen levels can affect their bone mass; this is often unnoticed, as osteoporosis is a silent disease.
Strong bones are a broad-spectrum formula to defend against osteoporosis. The strength of Strong Bones begins with microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA), the most readily available form of calcium for human supplementation, which is also rich in proteins and phosphorus. This is the same type of calcium found in humans. Our MCHA is sourced from pasture-fed New Zealand bovine, certified free from antibiotics, herbicides, pesticides, and Mad Cow Disease. It is freeze-dried to offer the highest quality possible.
The amino acids L-lysine and L-proline help to improve calcium absorption and support collagen production with the support of vitamin C.
Glucosamine sulfate represents a natural component for healthy cartilage and the production of connective tissue.
Magnesium is included to facilitate the absorption of calcium.
Zinc, copper, manganese, and boron are essential elements for bone growth, collagen formation, and the maintenance of strong connective tissue, along with promoting calcium retention.
Vitamin B1 (thiamin) is essential to the formula to support the metabolism of carbohydrates and for its role in energy production at the cellular level.
Vitamin L=K2 is included for its dual role in bone production and assisting in the prevention of bone loss.
The more absorbable form of magnesium, bis-glycinate, has replaced magnesium oxide due to its superior absorption.
Silica-rich horsetail promotes the strength and elasticity of connective tissue.
Curcumin 95% curcuminoids are among the new ingredients in Strong Bones. With a long history of use as an anti-inflammatory, recent studies show its value in the battle against osteoporosis.
Lutein extract supports levels of this carotenoid, which have been shown in studies to be deficient in women with several forms of osteoporosis.
Grape seed extract, 95% proanthocyanidins, has been shown to enhance bone density in animal trials.
Green tea, 75% epigallocatechin gallate-According to studies out of Hong Kong, green tea EGCG boosted the activity of a key enzyme that promotes bone growth by up to 79%. EGCG also significantly boosted levels of bone mineralization in the cells, which strengthens bones. Scientists also showed that high concentrations of EGCG blocked the activity of a type of cell (osteoclast) that breaks down or weakens bones.
Lycopene, a phytochemical found in tomatoes, helps to protect bone-producing cells from oxidative stress.
Studies in both the US and the Netherlands have shown folic acid supplementation helps prevent bone fractures in the elderly.
The coenzyme form of vitamin B12, methylcobalamin, completes the formula, as research at Tufts University has identified methylcobalamin as a modifiable risk factor in bone mineral density research.
