OsteoPrime: Bone-health and mineral mass support in capsule form.
Why use calcium and mineral formulas?
Calcium and other minerals are primary building blocks for bones: Bone is living tissue and needs calcium and other important nutrients to support healthy bones and teeth, and support healthy bone density. Since proper calcium intake can't always be met through diet alone, a strong supplement can make a huge difference.
Why use OsteoPrime?
It's designed for complete bone health: OsteoPrime bone formula delivers balanced nutrients to support and maintain healthy bones; including 5 forms of calcium for strong bones and teeth; magnesium to help form new calcium crystals; and zinc, vitamin C, and boron to help form the connective structures of the bone.
OsteoPrime uses clinically proven ingredients: This combination uses ingredients proven to support healthy bones and increase bone density.
OsteoPrime is formulated by Jonathan Wright, M.D., and Alan Gaby, M.D.: Dr. Wright is medical director of the Tahoma Clinic and a regular contributor to Prevention and Let's Live magazines, and Dr. Gaby is President of the American Holistic Medical Association & Medical Editor of The Townsend Letter for Doctors. Their combined expertise created OsteoPrime bone formula.
Human bones are dynamic living tissues. Much like other organs in the body, bones contain blood vessels (that bring needed nutrients), nerves (for the delivery of information and messages), and specialized cells (osteocytes) that work to maintain its structure. Large amounts of calcium and phosphorus give bones rigidity and strength, while collagen (a fibrous protein) provides flexibility. Cemented together by the minerals magnesium, sodium, and potassium, the primary solid components of bone – calcium, phosphorus, and collagen – require superior nutrition.
Similar to skin, bones are continually built up and broken down, rebuilding themselves many times. By regulating minerals, vitamin D, and specific hormones bone maintains a continual balance of bone remodeling. This ongoing process ensures density, strength, and resistance to fracture. The aging process presents significant changes in human bones. As women reach perimenopause and menopause, declining reproductive hormones leave bones vulnerable. When men enter their sixth decade, a slow loss of strength in bone occurs.
While the nutrients needed to sustain bone health are found in foods, current farming techniques are depleting the soil of many key minerals. Vitamin and mineral intake from food has been shown to be much less than it was a century ago. Agricultural chemicals may interfere with the metabolism of vitamins and minerals. Food preservatives such as ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) may interfere with absorption of vitamins and minerals. Supplementation of key nutrients can help ensure strong bones throughout a lifetime.
OsteoPrime Key Ingredients
While OsteoPrime contains 23 ingredients associated with bone health benefits, the following 15 vitamins and minerals have been the subject of the most extensive research showing their impact on bone health.
The most abundant mineral in the body, calcium supports bone health, nerve health, and healthy heart function. There are several calcium salts in nature, each with unique bone supportive benefits. Calcium triphosphate is the most prevalent form of calcium in human bone. Calcium salts contribute differing quantities of elementary calcium. Some salts contain more elemental calcium, while other forms are easier for the body to absorb. For example, calcium lactate is about 32 percent absorbed while calcium citrate is approximately 30 percent absorbed. By combining a number of different calcium salts in a supplement, absorption and utilization can be optimized.
Research has suggested that supplemental calcium may have superior benefits for the support of healthy bones. A review of fifteen trials, representing 1806 participants, demonstrated that calcium was more effective than placebo in supporting healthy bone density. A Harvard study that tracked 78,000 women over a decade demonstrated that those who had higher intakes of dietary calcium were more likely to experience support for bone health than those whose dietary calcium intake was lower.
More than 50% of the body's magnesium content is in bone; a primary function of magnesium is the regulation of active calcium transport within bone structures. Currently, the American diet contains, on average, only 250 mg of magnesium per day, less than the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of 420 mg for men and 320 mg for women. In a study of women taking supplemental magnesium for two years, significant support for healthy bone density was demonstrated.
Zinc is a trace mineral and essential cofactor for enzymes involved in the synthesis of bone matrix. Studies have shown that the zinc content in bones declines as people age. There is also a significant correlation between zinc intake and bone health in both men and women.
Through healthy support of collagen, copper may support bone mineral density over time. In clinical research, women taking supplemental copper experienced beneficial effects on bone density.
Several trace elements, including manganese are essential in bone metabolism as cofactors for specific enzymes. In a 16-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover trial, manganese provided nutritional support for the bones in the low back and the knee joint.
Boron is an essential nutrient for healthy bones and joints. Clinical research showed boron supplementation supported healthy bone mineral density. It is thought that this beneficial support is related to interactions between boron and calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, which is supported by the finding that supplemental boron reduced urinary calcium excretion.
Found in most plant-based foods, strontium levels in the soil determine how much will be contained in the plant. Recent studies of strontium demonstrated it is a bone supportive mineral. A review of strontium research shows the mineral supports healthy bone remodeling, healthy mineralization of bone tissue, and supports healthy distribution of bone mineralization. Strontium is thought to both support both healthy osteoclasts and healthy osteoblasts in bone.
Silicon has recently been recognized as an key nutrient that is important in small amounts for bone health. A recent study of over 2800 individuals found that higher dietary silicon intake in men and women supports skeletal health, especially the health of cortical bone (dense compact bone in adults).
Phosphorus provides nutritional support of healthy bones. Recent research has shown phosphorus and calcium work together to support healthy mineralization of bones. A research review of over 600 subjects demonstrated the importance of healthy calcium/phosphorus ratios in bone health support. Phosphorus supplementation (when bound to calcium) supports healthy bone formation and soft tissue health.
The results of two studies suggest that taking folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 may support bone mineral density by reduction of homocysteine levels.
Folic acid: Study results show folic acid supports healthy homocysteine levels
Vitamin B6: May help vitamin K activity in bone metabolism.
Vitamin B12: Combined with folate, reduced homocysteine levels and supported bone health in both men and women.
Vitamin C supports the healthy formation of procollagen (a precursor to collagen), supports collagen synthesis, and stimulates healthy bone formation. Clinical research demonstrates that vitamin C supplement use supports healthy bone mineral density. A study of 770 women who took at least 500mg of calcium and vitamin C had support of healthy bone mineral density in the lumbar spine (lower back).
The primary functions of vitamin D are promoting calcium absorption in bone and maintaining normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus.40 The long-standing belief that adequate vitamin D can be obtained from exposure to sunlight alone is yielding as widespread vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency are reported. Research has demonstrated supplementation with vitamin D3 and calcium may be especially important during the winter months.
Vitamin K influences osteocalcin, a protein in bone, to attract calcium and support bone mineralization.
A 3-year, double-blind, placebo-controlled intervention study of 155 women found that vitamin K1 may substantially support bone density.
A study within the Nurses' Health Study, studied data from 72327 women between the ages of 38 to 63 and found low intakes of vitamin K was correlated with poor bone density support.
