Building Healthy Bones
Bone, composed primarily of calcium, is a living tissue which contains cells, collagen, and other substances. The body is constantly breaking down and rebuilding bones.
When the rebuilding processes cannot keep up with the breakdown mechanisms bones can become very thin and fragile and may break under the slightest pressure.
Maintaining strong bones and teeth is essential to your health. Weak bones can result in osteoporosis‚ leading to painful broken bones and falls; this can inconvenience you and prevent you from living life to the fullest.
Evidence indicates that taking adequate calcium and Vitamin D throughout life, as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, helps build and maintain good bone health.
Specific vitamins and minerals are included in this formula to help your body utilize and absorb the calcium more efficiently.
About the Bone Support Formula Ingredients
Calcium and Magnesium
AlgaeCal® is a unique plant source calcium and magnesium mineral complex derived from a South American marine algae. AlgaeCal® is hand harvested from the beaches of South America without harming the environment in any way at all.
AlgaeCal® is a naturally occurring mixture of bone building nutrients, containing calcium, magnesium and several other bone supporting ingredients such as boron and silicon.
It is important to balance your calcium intake with magnesium, because these two minerals act together as a synergistic team.
Calcium and magnesium must dissolve in your stomach before it can be absorbed in your intestines and used by your body. AlgaeCal® dissolves in the stomach and therefore is much more bioavailable.
Vitamin D3 (often referred to as Vitamin D) is an important nutrient and your body requires it to absorb calcium.
Vitamin D3 is actually manufactured by the body if we get enough sunshine. Exercise and calcium from our diet are also required to manufacture vitamin D3. Most of us do not get enough exercise and fail to eat calcium rich foods like vegetables and/or dairy products, or oily fish.
Without enough vitamin D, one can’t form enough of the hormone calcitriol (known as the “active vitamin D”). This in turn leads to insufficient calcium absorption from the diet.
Vitamin K (as Vitamin K2 MK-7)
Bacteria produce this type of vitamin K. It is present in high quantities in your gut, but unfortunately is not absorbed from there and passes out in your stool. Vitamin K2 goes straight to vessel walls, bones, tissues and your liver.
Vitamin K2 activates a protein hormone which is needed to bind calcium into the matrix of your bone, which appears to help prevent calcium from depositing into your arteries.
So while increasing calcium is good for your bones, it is not so good for your arteries, which can become calcified. Vitamin K2 helps protect your blood vessels from calcifying when in the presence of high calcium levels.
Elderly patients who have fractures have significantly lower levels of vitamin C. Those who have higher levels of Vitamin C tend to have fewer fractures. Bone mineral density tests show that those with sufficient vitamin C levels usually have healthy bones.
Vitamin C mineralizes bones and stimulates bone forming cells to grow. At the same time, Vitamin C prevents too much degradation of bone by inhibiting cells that break down the bone.
Vitamin C is vital to collagen synthesis (the body creates more collagen when there is more Vitamin C) and is an excellent antioxidant. Collagen is the glue that holds together ligaments, tendons and bones.
Humans also require boron. About 3 milligrams of boron daily reduces urinary excretion of calcium and magnesium, especially when dietary magnesium is low. This suggests that boron may promote bone health.
Without boron, the absorption of calcium can be limited and often underutilized. Boron is an essential factor in facilitating the bone-building effects of key nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D. Boron is critical to maintaining and improving one’s bone health.
Why Should You Choose the

Help you Build and Maintain Healthy Bones?
Your body requires certain levels of these nutrients in your bloodstream at all times. These nutrients aid the body in running the nervous system‚ blood clotting‚ and muscle contraction.
