Bone Mineral Density & OsteoPrev
Musculoskeletal health is extremely important, and this includes bone mineral density (BMD). BMD is a major determinant of bone mass and is the most commonly measured quality of bone. BMD may be affected directly by many things, including lifestyle factors and hormonal balance. Things like daily exercise, minimizing stress levels and consuming a healthy diet all contribute to ensuring optimal levels of bone health and preserving bone strength. While minerals like calcium are a good place to start for promoting bone health, other nutrients working synergistically are required for bone mineralization.
OsteoPrev is a formulation designed specifically for promoting healthy bone density and includes a variety of calcium and phytonutrients to ultimately support bone health and increase skeletal strength.
What is in OsteoPrev?
Isoflavones are plant-based compounds that resemble estrogen at the molecular level. These compounds activate osteoblast cells, promoting new bone formation, while also increasing cell-signaling proteins that may inhibit the bone-absorbing activity of osteoclast cells. Ipriflavone is an isoflavone derivative that does just this, and has been studied to show bone function and strength.
Calcium & Phosphorus
Nearly all calcium in the adult skeletal system is paired with phosphorus, called hydroxyapatite. Calcium has had extensive studies done to be effective in promoting bone health, especially when paired with phosphorus. Phosphorus also plays a role in bone mineralization.
Magnesium & Boron
Approximately 50% of magnesium found in the body is found in the bone. Magnesium has been shown to play numerous roles in bone health, including increasing calcium absorption, acting as a cofactor for alkaline phosphatase activation, and supporting vitamin D3 conversion in the body. Magnesium deficiency is very common in modern America, as it can decrease from excess consumption of alcohol, salt, coffee, phosphoric acid in sodas, and long term stress. High boron levels in the body have been shown to support proper skeletal health.
Vitamin D3 & Vitamin K1
Vitamin D is a vitamin known for its role in supporting bone health and aiding in the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the GI tract. Studies have shown that there is a direct correlation between bone mineral density and the active form of vitamin D. Vitamin K1 is responsible for synthesizing osteocalcin, which is a protein involved in calcium transport. Vitamin K has been studied for its ability to decrease the activity of osteoclasts, helping maintain bone formation and strength. Vitamin K works synergistically with Vitamin D3 to improve calcium absorption.
