Bone Nutrients 120 capsules by Seeking Health provides calcium and other nutrients that are critical to building and maintaining healthy bones. While bones are in a constant state of turnover, they absorb less calcium as we age, gradually losing their strength and density over time. Several factors can help slow the rate of bone loss including regular weight-bearing exercise and sufficient intake of vital nutrients that the body needs to rebuild bones. Calcium, magnesium, vitamin, D, vitamin K, boron, and silicon work in complementary ways to support the density, strength, formation, and metabolism of bones.
For optimum health of your skeletal system, Bone Nutrients by Seeking Health is formulated with:
Calcium: Calcium is the basic bone-building mineral required by the body. Adequate calcium intake every day, over a lifetime, is important for maintaining sufficient bone density as we age. Regular exercise and a healthy diet with enough calcium helps teens and young adult women maintain good bone health and may reduce their high risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Magnesium: Magnesium has a multi-faceted role in bone health. This mineral has an influence on calcium metabolism and bone formation through its role in converting vitamin D to its most active form. Magnesium is also helpful in regulating several hormones that affect calcium absorption and utilization while acting as a cofactor in over 300 enzymatic reactions.
Vitamins D and K: Vitamin D is a key regulatory hormone that helps the body ensure proper calcium levels are maintained for healthy bones and teeth. This vitamin assists the body’s absorption of calcium while helping limit calcium loss in the urine. Vitamin K is necessary for proper bone structure due to its role in stimulating osteocalcin, the major bone matrix protein.
Other Supportive Nutrients: Boron is included for its usefulness in enhancing the absorption and utilization of both calcium and magnesium. Bone Nutrients also contains silicon in an active, soluble form that the body can readily use. Silicon supports the proper construction of collagen in the protein matrix of the bone ultimately generating an increase in bone density.
Bone Nutrients by Seeking Health is an excellent addition to a healthy diet and exercise program for anyone who wants to support maximum bone health. Individuals may also chose to include a daily, high-potency multivitamin/mineral formulation for more complete bone support.

For a calcium supplement, these are very easy to take. In capsule form, it completely eliminates the hard to swallow chalky feeling other calcium supplements have. I'll continue these as part of my daily plan. (Posted on 10/17/12)
