VITAMINS, MINERALS, AND BOTANICALS PROVIDE COMPREHENSIVE BONE-DENSITY SUPPORT
- Bioavailable micronutrients to support bone-building activity
- Specialty nutrients to support optimal calcium metabolism
OSTEOGENESIS AND OSTEOGENESIS ES provide a comprehensive blend of ingredients to support the maintenance and development of healthy bones. Contrary to popular belief, bone health is not only dependent on proper mineral intake. Maintenance of bone density is also heavily reliant on the numerous body reactions that support the balance between bone resorption and remodeling. The nutrients and botanicals in OsteoGenesis and OsteoGenesis ES are designed to not only provide the building materials for healthy bones, but also to support the endogenous pathways that favor maintenance of healthy bone structure.
CALCIUM (CITRATE/MALATE) are the calcium salts of citric and malic acid. These chelated forms of calcium are water-soluble compounds and therefore are highly absorbable and bioavailable. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body with the majority of body reserves being in the bones and teeth. Depletion of bone calcium occurs when blood levels of calcium are below optimal level. This repeated borrowing of bone calcium can lead to porous bone tissues and increase the risk for fractures and breakage. Although much of bone mass is acquired during adolescence and early adulthood, maintaining adequate intake of calcium throughout life can have profound effects on enhancing bone density. In studies of post-menopausal women, oral calcium supplementation has been shown to reduce bone loss and fractures.
