Did you know we naturally begin to lose bone density in our early 30's?
Early signs include brittle hair, poor tooth enamel and weak nails. Without proper nutritional support, stooped posture, decreased mobility and increased risk for osteoporosis will occur more rapidly. And while Calcium and Vitamin D have long been recommended, studies now show they are not enough.
Based on leading research, greens+ bone builder formula contains a synergistic blend of vitamins (including Vitamins D3, C and B12), antioxidants (such as Lycopene) and minerals (including 3 highly absorbable forms of Calcium), greens+ bone builder helps to:
Stimulate bone formation (via osteoblasts)
Inhibit cells which break down bone (osteoclasts)
Promote alkalinity in the body to retain minerals, prevent oxidative stress and maximize Calcium absorption
Reduce risk for osteoporosis, bone fractures, curvature of the spine
Available in natural blackberry flavour and bone builder tablets.
Based on leading research, bone builder contains a synergistic blend of bone-building antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, including 3 forms of highly absorbable Calcium, Vitamins C, D3 and Lycopene.
Together these ingredients help build and protect your bones for better posture, strength and mobility - with reduced risk for osteoporosis.
The benefits of including bone builder every day, include:
Stronger, healthier bones, including hair, nails and teeth
Increased bone formation (via osteoblasts)
Inhibited cells which break down bone (osteoclasts)
Reduced risk for osteoporosis and bone fractures
Available in convenient capsules and tablets, bone builder are perfect for people on-the-go, or for those already taking a greens+ formula that would prefer not to switch formulas.
bonebuilder The Formula
Five (5) capsules of bone builder contain bone builder contain:
|Calcium (formate 200mg; citrate-malate: 150mg; bisglycinate: 150mg) |
New research shows Calcium citrate-malate, long recommended for bone health is not enough. Two new forms: Calcium formate and bisglycinate, provide greater benefits due to their enhanced solubility. For maximum bioavailability and effectiveness, greens+ bone builder contains all 3 forms of Calcium.
Studies show a direct link between higher Magnesium intake and higher bone density in older adults. Like greens+, Magnesium promotes alkalinity in the body, thereby decreasing the risk for urinary Calcium loss.
|Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol):|
A major influencer on Calcium status, Vitamin D3 increases absorption from the intestines and helps prevent Calcium loss through the kidneys. Population studies show dietary Vitamin D3, either from supplementation or sunlight exposure, increases protection against osteoporosis and fractures.
|Vitamin C (calcium and magnesium ascorbate):. ,|
Essential for collagen (important strengthening component within bones) and bone formation. Population studies show low Vitamin C is associated with lower bone mass and elevated fracture risk. greens+ bone builder specifically contains a non-acidic form of Vitamin C (calcium and magnesium ascorbate).
|Folic acid - 400mcg |
Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) - 10mcg
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride) - 10mg
Adequate Folic Acid, Vitamins B12 and B6 status is associated with healthier bone mass. In addition to increasing bone forming cells, they actively lower homocysteine - now recognized as a major risk factor for osteoporosis and bone fractures.
|Silicon Equisetum arvense: Horsetail stem and leaf extract standardized to 7% silica - 43mg: |
Research shows supplemental Silicon slows natural bone loss with aging. Silicon helps promote bone forming cells (osteoblasts). It also binds and removes Aluminum from the body which is associated with Calcium loss. greens+ bone builder contains Silicon from horsetail to provide a natural, food-based source.
|Boron (FruiteX B® OsteoboronTM): |
Boron is critically important for bone health as it helps prevent Calcium and Magnesium loss and assists in the metabolism of Vitamin D3. Human studies show that the target dose for Boron to increase bone mass is 3mg (as found in greens+ bone builder).
|Zinc (Bioactive™ proteinate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - 10mg |
Copper (HVP chelate) - 1mg
Manganese (Bioactive™ proteinate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae - 3mg
These minerals are essential co-factors which help enzymes work properly - including the manufacture of bone tissue. Deficiencies in these nutrients have profound effects on overall bone mass density. Intervention studies show these nutrients to be more beneficial in bone loss versus Calcium alone. (Bioactive™ proteinate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
L-Lysine is an amino acid that has been shown to promote osteoblasts, improve Calcium absorption from the GI tract, and prevent Calcium loss from the kidneys. Due to its ability to increase bone mass, it is a recommended supplement for adults with osteoporosis.
One of the most important antioxidant minerals - particularly with research linking high levels of oxidative stress in today's environment to compromised bone health. In a large study (over 1200 subjects) those with the highest Selenium intake were 73% less likely to suffer a hip fracture versus those with the lowest intake.
|Lycopersicon esculentum: Tomato fruit extract supplying 7mg of Lycopene - 70mg |
In studies conducted at the University of Toronto, Lycopene has been shown to stimulate bone formation by osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) and has an inhibitory effect on the cells which break down bone mass (osteoclasts). Following these studies, researchers from Australia also showed higher dietary Lycopene intake with the prevention of bone loss in adults.
Take five (5) capsules with food.
Not to be taken by children, during pregnancy, while breastfeeding or by those on prescription medication unless under the supervision of a health care practitioner. Keep out of reach of children.
Note: bone builder contains no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners or preservatives, corn, dairy, egg, or yeast.
Store in a cool, dry place.
bonebuilder The Research
A new study to be published in 2010 has shown that the combination of greens+ and bone builder effectively stimulates the osteoblast cells that are responsible for forming bone - up to 1000 increase in the area of mineralized bone nodule growth versus control.
