Bone Builder® Extra Strength is made from purity-certified microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate (MCHC). This mineral-rich compound consists mostly of calcium and phosphorus but it has other naturally occurring minerals, magnesium, zinc, boron and silica, for example, in proportions appropriate for supporting bone density. But MCHC has more than just minerals. It also contains bioactive bone growth factors such as collagen as well as non-collagen proteins like osteocalcin, which regulates mineralization of bones and teeth.
MCHC has been studied for over 30 years and has been shown to be effective not just for slowing bone loss in postmenopausal women but actually increasing bone mass. It is more effective than calcium carbonate and calcium gluconate.
The MCHC in Bone Builder® Extra Strength is cold-processed to preserve the protein matrix and organic factors in bone. It is derived from free-range pasture-fed cattle from New Zealand and is regularly assayed by a third-party laboratory for heavy metal contamination.
Microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate (MCHC) is one of the most easily absorbed forms of calcium and is generally well tolerated. Bone Builder® Extra Strength offers a convenient way to promote new bone formation, support bone mass and slow age-related bone loss because you get over a gram of calcium in just 3 tablets.
Calcium, plus regular exercise and a healthy diet, can play a significant role in reducing the rate of bone loss or bone thinning and protecting bone strength.
MCHC should not be confused with bone meal.
