Loss of bone density and maintaining healthy bone function are major issues that not only affect menopausal women but also, surprisingly often, aging men. These problems are not solely linked to hormone dysfunction but often to deficiencies of essential nutrients including magnesium, vitamin D3, silicon, boron or vitamin K2.
Super Bone Formula, to maintain and improve bone density
¤ Super Bone Formula addresses these problems, now providing a number of advanced and highly-bioavailable nutrients such as KoACT™, Fruitex-B™, organic silicon, strontium and ipriflavone.
is a new, patented, chelated compound of calcium and collagen, which research from Tokyo University shows can help increase bone resistance 10% more effectively than calcium alone. Traditional calcium supplements may improve bone mineral density, but they fall short in supporting bone strength and flexibility. This function is provided by the collagen in KoACT™ which protects bones from fractures better than calcium alone. Collagen is the strong, flexible and fibrous protein that supports bone structure and helps it withstand daily impact.
¤ Fruitex-B™ or calcium fructoborate
is a boron-fructose-calcium complex similar to that provided by Nature in fruits and vegetables. This complex form of boron is much more bioavailable. Numerous studies have shown the importance of boron to the structural integrity of bones.
is an isoflavone derived from soya daidzein ; a number of studies have demonstrated its efficacy in protecting against osteoporosis. Supported by trials on large numbers of patients, ipriflavone’s benefits come from its oestrogen-mimicking action, but it has no hormonal side-effects. It is even more effective when combined with calcium. Its mechanism of action relates to activation of osteoblasts which are themselves maximised by calcium, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2.
promotes calcium transport and absorption in a ratio as close as possible to 1:2. Magnesium deficiency is linked to osteoporosis and brittle bones, making supplementation essential in many cases.
¤ Menaquinone-7, or MK-7
, extracted from Natto, is the most bioavailable fraction of vitamin K2. Its activity is boosted when combined with vitamin D3, which stimulates bone formation by increasing mineral density, particularly in menopausal women, whether or not they have osteoporosis. The activity of menaquinone-7 is also increased when combined with calcium.
contributes to bone health and strength. It supports differentiation of osteoblasts and helps maintain a balance with the activity of osteoclasts. It promotes collagen formation which gives bones their resistance to traction.
¤ Extract of Tabashir bamboo
contains more than 70% organic silicon, ten times more than horsetail. Silicon is an element that’s essential for the health of the skin, ligaments, tendons and bones. Its absorption decreases with age and can affect bone health, which is all the more important since it plays a major role in mineral absorption by supporting recalcification and maintaining Ca/Mg balance. Silicon also stimulates chondroblasts by enabling chondroitin sulphate and hyaluronic acid to be deposited within the cartilage matrix, which is why it is used to treat those suffering from the pain of arthritis.
¤ Vitamin D3
is essential for good absorption of calcium and its resorption by bones. It boosts the efficacy of calcium and prevents or delays bone loss. Even traditional medicine now recognises the need for supplementation with vitamin D3.
Super Bone Formula provides an effective range of nutrients naturally present in healthy bones, the synergistic action of which can prevent or slow down bone loss.
