BioGenesis OsteoGenesis, 120 count
BioGenesis OsteoGenesis provides bioavailable nutrients to support bone building activity and specialty nutrients to support optimal calcium metabolism. Each serving provides vitamins D3, K1, and K2, which are critical to building and maintaining bone mass, as well as chelated magnesium, calcium, vanadium, manganese, and boron.
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 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 (as calcium citrate and calcium malate) are chelated and 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. Maintaining adequate intake of calcium throughout life can have profound effects on enhancing bone density.
Magnesium (as magnesium glycinate and magnesium citrate) are chelated forms of magnesium and are also well absorbed and bioavailable. Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and supports numerous functions including enzyme regulation, calcium transport, and parathyroid hormone activity. Itis also a critical component of the structure of the bone matrix, and deficiency is linked to an increase in bone brittleness and fracture risk.
Vitamin D-3 (as cholecalciferol) is the biologically active form of vitamin D. Cholecalciferol is a pro-hormone that has multiple roles in maintaining bone mineralization and serum calcium levels. Active vitamin D induces proteins that serve to enhance calcium transport across intestinal mucosal cells. In response to low serum calcium, vitamin D also stimulates calcium resorption in the renal tubules to help maintain calcium levels.
Vitamin K-2 is a dependent cofactor for carboxylation of the human matrix GLA protein (MGP), a major inhibitor of arterial calcification. Vitamin K2 (as menaquinone-7) has been shown effective for maintaining calcium balance by helping keep calcium in the bones and out of the vascular media.
Boron improves the metabolism of calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium.
Horsetail extract (Equisetum arvense) is a natural source of water-soluble colloidal silica. Silica has been shown to strengthen the bone matrix connective tissue by enhancing cross-linking of collagen strands.
