"Fosamax, Boniva and Actonel all gave me nausea and ulcers. I love Osteo Protect because it makes my bones stronger without side effects." - Sally
"I thought all calcium supplements were the same. I was so wrong. Osteo Protect is the only one I took that I can prove works. My bone scan actually showed reversal of my Osteoporosis with it." - Jill
Calcium has long been known for its role in tooth and bone growth. Supplementation with calcium has been shown to prevent bone loss. Studies have also shown that calcium may protect against cancer and help with weight loss. Calcium is also essential for proper muscle function, development of digestive enzymes and fat metabolism. Calcium is also good for irregular heartbeats and for regulating nerve function.
Boron is important for the overall health of our skeletal system by increasing bone mass. Research has suggested that boron may be a key component in bone health and in the prevention of osteoporosis1.
Vitamin K is a group of fat-soluble vitamins that play a key role in the posttranslational modification of certain proteins, mostly those that are required for blood clotting, but also proteins that chelate calcium and those that are involved in bone and tissue metabolism. Vitamin K2 (menaquinone) is normally produced by bacteria in the gut and vitamin K deficiencies are very rare unless bowel malabsorption is present (leaky gut, heavy antibiotic use). Vitamin K is found in high quantities in green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts). Vitamin Ks are capable of blocking the blood thinning action of anticoagulants such as warfarin.
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin and often referred to as the "sunshine" vitamin. It plays a major role in digestion and the utilization of calcium. This process is critical in the formation, function and health of normal bone and teeth.
Healthy bones require adequate intake and absorption of specific nutrients. Research has shown that Manganese, Silica and Vitamins B-6 and C are all important for optimal bone health by increasing the absorption and utilization of calcium.
