What Is It?
Ortho• Bone is an advanced bone formula providing nutrients that are fundamental for mineral deposition in bone and for regulating the excretion of minerals. These include the best calcium source of 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.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Ortho• Bone serves not only to reduce bone loss but to maintain or even increase bone growth. MCHC contains more than calcium: it contains all the minerals and proteins found in bone, is rich in phosphorus, and provides proteins that act as growth factors, stimulating 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.
Who Should Take It?
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, osteopenia, frail post-menopausal women and elderly people in general will benefit the most from taking Ortho• Bone.
Take up to 10 capsules daily, dividing the dose among meals to facilitate maximum absorption, taking the largest single dose with the last meal or snack of the day, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
CAUTION: Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking blood thinners. Some people may experience diarrhea. Contains soy.
