This is a well-rounded bone support formula with several forms of calcium and magnesium for optimal absorption. Most of us know that calcium and magnesium are important minerals for strong, healthy bones, but they are not the only minerals that make up our skeletal tissues. Manganese also accumulates in bones and enhances growth and repair by stimulating osteoblast activity and suppressing osteoclast activity. It is also necessary for healthy cartilage. In addition, manganese can help to improve balance thereby decreasing the risk of fractures due to falls.
Vitamin C is necessary for growth and repair of tissues throughout the body and is especially important for healthy bone structure because of its role in creating collagen, the frame upon which minerals are deposited to make bones. Vitamin D is necessary for deposition of calcium into bones and is associated with decreased risk of bone fractures and improved dental health. Vitamin K supplementation has been linked to a reduced risk of bone fractures and is necessary for bone formation and repair and the synthesis of osteocalcin, a protein in the bone matrix.
Zinc is important for cell growth and contributes to the healing of bone fractures. Deficiency of zinc can lead to impaired bone development as well as tooth decay. Copper also contributes to the healing of bone fractures and is important for creating collagen, a protein that is the structure upon which bones are built. Zinc and copper help to balance one another.
Silica and boron are also important for bone structure and strength and enhance absorption of calcium. In addition, boron is a component of tooth enamel. Betaine hydrocholoride (HCl) enhances mineral absorption.
