One thing about nutritional support for bone health that always seems to get overlooked is the fact that that you need more than calcium. You need more than calcium and magnesium. In fact, you need a lot more than even the calcium, magnesium and vitamin D that comprise most "bone formulas" on the market. What you want is a complete bone support formula that contains these 3 critical nutrients, but also covers the crucial nutritional co-factors your body needs to utilize those bone builders. These include vitamin K, vitamin C, boron, zinc, manganese, copper and phosphorus. Very few products cover all these bases as well as Jarrow Formulas mega-popular Bone Up. This 6 capsule per day formula lets you easily take divided, absorbable doses throughout the course of the day which is the ideal way to take calcium and bone support supplements. Also available in a Vegetarian format. Take Bone Up in divided doses with solid food for best absorption.
Bone-Up Description from Jarrow
BoneUp is a complete bone-health system that provides StimuCal MicroCrystalline HydroxyApatite (MCHA) and micronutrients for bone health. StimuCal MCHA is a natural source of calcium shown to support bone mineral density and not spike calcium levels in the blood with supplementation. StimuCal also provides bone proteins, including type I collagen, which has been shown in clinical research to support bone health. Vitamins D3 and K2 (as natural MK-7 from fermentation) work together to enhance calcium deposition into bones.
HEALTH CLAIM: Adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
