Calcium for Strong Bones
Vitabase Osteo-Support provides needed calcium for strong bones. According
to the National Institutes of Health, it is not unusual for many
individuals to consume less than half the calcium they need for building
and maintaining healthy bones. Heavy use of caffeine, such as in coffee,
of sodium phosphates found in carbonated drinks, and of alcohol can cause
drops in the calcium the body retains.
To function properly, calcium must be
accompanied by several other nutrients including vitamins A, C, D, and K;
phosphorus; and magnesium.
Osteo-Support also includes 200 mg of ipriflavone, a synthetic derivative
of genistein or daidzein. Genistein and daidzein are isoflavones (natural
plant components that have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and
Research studies have shown positive
results from ipriflavone supplementation in maintaining or increasing bone
mineral density, particularly when combined with a calcium supplement. In
studies, ipriflavone was shown to have potential to prevent rapid bone
loss after menopause, to increase bone density in postmenopausal women, to
decrease bone fracturing, and to relieve bone pain from osteoporosis.

Vitamin D is necessary for growth and utilized in the digestive
tract to aid in the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus.

Current studies indicate that women
approaching menopause who increase their intake of soy isoflavones
have significantly higher bone-mineral density. Japanese women with diets
rich in soy isoflavones had greater bone-mineral density than those with
diets low in soy isoflavones. More study is needed before specific health
benefits can be established.

ingredients for strong bones in one convenient product. With 120 percent
