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
BONE-UP provides ossein hydroxyapatite complex (OHC) (from free-range Australian/New Zealand calves), which includes the superior combination of the inorganic calcium lattice of microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) within an organic protein milieu rich in naturally occurring growth factors. The OHC is combined with vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 as MK-7 (a more bioavailable form of vitamin K) to support the deposition of calcium into the bones as well as to assist in building up the organic bone matrix. Potassium citrate is also added for optimal osteo support.
