Life Extension Bone Restore with Vitamin K2 provides the most complete, bioavailable calcium complex together with the active form of vitamin K2 which is vital for building healthy bone tissues.
A problem overlooked by most doctors is that loss of bone density is associated with deficiencies of not just calcium, but a host of other nutrients including magnesium and vitamin D3. In order for calcium to prevent bone loss, adequate amounts of vitamin D3, zinc, manganese and other nutrients should be available so that calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus can be incorporated into the bone matrix. Another issue that many people are not aware of is that many forms of calcium do not absorb particularly well.
In order to overcome the impediments that preclude aging women from achieving optimal calcium status, a mineral formula has been designed that provides 700 elemental milligrams from three different forms of calcium per daily dose, along with critically important nutrients needed to promote healthy bones. Bone Restore™ provides calcium along with nutrients such as boron and silicon to further boost the body's ability to maintain healthy bone density.
Boron has been identified as one of the most important nutrients to help maintain bone health. As such, Life Extension has incorporated a powerful form of boron, called FruiteX B® OsteoBoron™, which is more bioavailable than boron citrate, the nutrient used in most commercial bone building supplements.
Boron in general is a crucial mineral in bone/joint health. Numerous studies have shown boron to contribute to the structural integrity of bone.
Vitamin K2 (menaquinones) is found in meat, eggs, and dairy products and is also made by bacteria in the human gut, which provides a certain amount of the human vitamin K requirement. Human studies show that vitamin K2 is up to ten times more bioavailable than K1. Vitamin K2 remains biologically active in the body far longer than K1. Vitamin K2 is known to enhance the function of osteoblasts, the cells that form bone tissue whilst mediating the function of osteoclasts, the cells that busily break down bone tissue.
