- Helps to build strong bones
- Helps in the absorption and use of calcium
OsteoBase includes 300 mg of elemental calcium and 300 mg of elemental magnesium per serving, with multiple forms of calcium to ensure maximum absorption.
Calcium in bone is combined with phosphorus to form microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCH). In the body, phosphorus is second in abundance only to calcium, and is necessary for bone health. Phosphate makes up 50% of bone tissue and is an essential ingredient in calcium supplements to develop and maintain bone health. OsteoBase uses multiple forms of calcium to maximize absorption.
Magnesium comprises about 1% of bone mineral and is known to influence both bone matrix and bone mineral metabolism. A tight control of magnesium homeostasis seems to be crucial for bone health. Calcium and magnesium balance is maintained through an intricately linked relationship that supports foundational bone health.
Vitamin K2 (as MK-7)
Vitamin K2 helps to bind newly absorbed calcium to the mineral matrix in bone through its activation of the protein osteocalcin. In addition, vitamin K has been found to help maintain bone mineral density by decreasing the activity of osteoclasts, or cells that break down the bone matrix.
Vitamin D (as D3)
Vitamin D is essential for the efficient utilization of calcium by the body. Vitamin D helps in the absorption and use of calcium by increasing the intestinal absorption of dietary calcium, increasing the reabsorption of calcium filtered by the kidneys, and mobilizing calcium from bone when there is insufficient dietary calcium.
Adults: Take 3 capsules per day. Take with food a few hours before or after taking other medications or natural health products.
