Nutrients to Support Bone Density*
Bone-Up is the most advanced and complete nutritional regimen for maintaining strong, healthy bones.* Bone-Up utilizes the finest source of calcium available: microcrystalline hydroxyapatite. While calcium is important for bone mineral density (BMD), the bone matrix also requires nutrients like vitamin C, silicon, and vitamin K. Vitamin D is also essential for absorbing more calcium.
Who Needs to Supplement Calcium?
2%-4% of your skeleton is “remodeled” every year as bone cells are broken down as we age. As a result, calcium and other minerals in the rest of the bone matrix must be replaced. Poor nutrition or the onset of aging can result in a loss of calcium and other minerals from the bone, creating tiny holes that make bones weak and brittle. Proper diet, exercise, and supplements can help.
Clinically Documented Formula
In an 8-week double-blind placebo-controlled study, supplementation with Bone-Up (not placebo) was found to produce statistically significant decreases in bone degradation markers, while increasing levels of plasma bone specific alkaline phosphatase (an indicator of bone synthesis), plasma 2,5-OH- vitamin D (an indicator of vitamin D nutritional status) and plasma parathyroid hormone.*

Bone-Up provides ossein hydroxyapatite complex (OHC) (from Australian/New Zealand range-grazed calves), which includes the superior combination of the inorganic calcium lattice of microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) within an organic protein milieu. The OHC is combined with vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 as MK-7 from natural fermentation (a more bioavailable form of vitamin K) to support the deposition of calcium into the bones as well as to assist in building up the organic bone matrix.* Potassium citrate is also added for optimal osteo support.*
