Bone Basics is more than just a calcium supplement for bone health. It is a complete bone-building formulation that includes nutrients which are fundamental for maintaining mineral balance in the bone matrix and for supporting healthy joints. Bone Basics is unique because it serves not only to reduce bone loss but to maintain or even increase bone growth.
The key ingredient is microcrystalline hydroxyapatite complex (MCHC), which is an extract from New Zealand bovine bone and a superior source of calcium and phosphorus. However MCHC is more than a source of minerals: it provides proteins, growth factors, and mucopolysaccharides that all work together to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss. The calcium in MCHC is absorbed more slowly into the bloodstream than typical calcium supplements, which allows it to be better taken up into the bones, rather than being deposited in arteries or other soft tissues.
Additional nutrients in Bone Basics include vitamin C, vitamin D3, vitamin K2, boron, magnesium, manganese, zinc, copper and glucosamine. Together, these ingredients provide diverse benefits such as enhancing the absorption and usage of calcium and supporting collagen production, which builds the framework for bone. Finally, glucosamine supports cartilage and synovial fluid production, which help to cushion and lubricate the joints. All this makes Bone Basics one of the most comprehensive formulas available for promoting bone and joint health.
Post-menopausal women, those with osteopenia, a family history of osteoporosis or who are small-framed would benefit significantly from Bone Basics.
