What Is It?
Ortho• Bone Vegan is an advanced bone formula providing nutrients that are fundamental for mineral deposition in bone and for regulating the excretion of minerals. Ortho• Bone Vegan differs from AOR's original Ortho• Bone in that it provides the most effective non-animal sources of calcium and vitamin D. Calcium citrate-malate is the most absorbable vegetarian form of calcium, and vitamin D2 is extracted from soy.
Primary Uses: Ortho• Bone Vegan provides all the nutrients known to benefit bone health, helping to reduce calcium loss and maintain bone mineral density. Calcium is the main mineral found in bone, and calcium citrate-malate is the most quickly absorbed form. Vitamins D & K serve to enhance the body's absorption and usage of calcium. MK-4 and MK-7 are two effective forms of vitamin K2. 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?
Vegetarians, vegans, post-menopausal women, those with osteopenia, a family history of osteoporosis and small-framed women would benefit significantly from Ortho• Bone Vegan.
Did You Know?
Although calcium citrate-malate contains only about 26% elemental calcium, it is one of the most well absorbed forms of calcium. The special structure of calcium citrate-malate makes it 6 to 9 times more easily dissolved in the stomach than plain calcium citrate and is absorbed 36% better. Calcium carbonate is 35-40% elemental calcium, but it has poor bioavailability. Calcium citrate is absorbed about 22% better than calcium carbonate, which reveals the superiority of calcium citrate-malate over both forms.
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. Take a few hours before or after taking other medications.
CAUTION: Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking blood thinners. Some people may experience diarrhea. Contains soy.
