Bone Density is a comprehensive formula containing 1,000 mg of calcium from hydroxyapatite, calcium, citrate / malate and calcium carbonate, plus specific vitamins and minerals. The hydroxyapatite used in this formula is obtained from raw bone matrix. Hydroxyapatite is an effective form of calcium for for bone support.
BONE DENSITY FACTORS with Boron A nutritional aid for periodontal and skeletal support. Research has shown that as we age, our bones lose moisture. The moisture in bones, including the jaw bone,comes from a jelly-like substance called "proteoglycons". This jelly-like fluid is a transfer medium for theminerals that make bones and teeth hard. Bones serve as a reservoir for minerals and there is an ongoing turnover of these minerals for cellular needs. Stores are rebuilt with minerals absorbed from the diet if sufficient moisture is present. Brittle, dry bones fracture easily, and this is a special problem for the elderly. Aging individuals both break bones more easily and find it more difficult to mend once the breaks occur It's an established fact that hormone levels affect the uptake and loss of calcium. In post menopausal women,estrogen levels fall, resulting in less calcium absorption. The mineral, boron, has been shown to assist in slightly elevating estrogen levels. Other hormones are necessary for calcium uptake; some of which require Vitamin D. Calcium is imbedded in the collagen bone matrix in a specific way. This crystalline calcium is called hydroxyapatite. Attached to the hydroxyapatite are other minerals like magnesium, potassium, copper, silica,manganese, vanadium, and molybdenum. This complex structure gives bones their characteristic rigidity. BONE DENSITY FACTORS includes nutritional components that address the health of bone tissue,mineralization, and skeletal support.
NUTRITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS Hydroxyapatite: The natural, inorganic compound that makes up the crystalline matrix of bone and teeth,giving them rigidity. Consisting of a 5:3 ratio of calcium to phosphate, highly absorbable hydroxyapatite is helpfu lin preventing bone loss. Praline: An amino acid that is the chief constitutent of collagen, which forms the tough, fibrous protein base ofbone tissue ,Proteoglycans: Also called mucoproteins, they are the organic material that combine with the inorganic hydroxyapatite to complete the bone structure. The body also uses proteoglycans to manufacture tendons,ligaments, and cartilage.Calcium: Since this is the predominant mineral in bones, additional high quality and easily absorbable calcium such as citrate and calcium citrate malate are needed.Magnesium, Potassium and Trace Minerals: Magnesium and potassium are the other "macro" minerals necessary for bone structure. While needed in smaller amounts, the trace minerals play critical roles in bone maintenance.Boron: Found to be associated with calcium metabolism, boron also affects steroid hormone metabolism and has demonstrated the ability to naturally elevate estrogen levels in postmenopausal women. Vitamins & Folic Acid: Required as coenzymes for the building and repairing of bone tissue. Vitamin D is particularly important in the absorption and utilization of calcium.
