OsteoPrime Plus: Unique formula that helps reduce bone loss.
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 Plus?
It's designed for important phases in women's bone health: OsteoPrime Plus bone formula delivers balanced nutrients to support and maintain healthy bones; including 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 Plus includes MenaQ7: This natto extract enhances calcium absorption and bone-building function.
OsteoPrime Plus uses clinically proven ingredients: This combination uses ingredients proven to support healthy bones, increase bone density and reduce bone loss.
OsteoPrime Plus contains both strontium and calcium. Should these two minerals be taken together or will one interfere with the absorption of the other?
Dr. Allen Gaby, co-formulator of OsteoPrime Plus, comments:
To the best of my knowledge, the idea that strontium and calcium should not be taken together is theoretical, and not based on any clinical research. Some of the studies in which strontium therapy was beneficial did not separate the strontium from the calcium, or at least did not mention anything about whether or not they were taken together or apart. There are many nutrients that share the same absorption mechanism with other nutrients, but that does not mean they have to taken separately. Many foods contain both strontium and calcium, and the body seems to have figured out how to absorb them both.
It is possible (though I am not aware of any documentation) that, when giving massive doses of strontium, the absorption would be greater if calcium were not taken at the same time. However, there is evidence that high-dose strontium has significant adverse effects, including some adverse effects on bone. There is also evidence that lower doses of strontium may be more effective than higher doses, with respect to maintaining bone health. For those reasons, I am reluctant to recommend the high doses of strontium that some doctors claim should not be taken at the same time as calcium. The amount of strontium in OsteoPrime Plus is physiological (i.e., similar to the amount naturally occurring in food), and one might reasonably presume that the body's normal absorption mechanisms would be able to handle both the strontium and calcium at the same time.
What’s the difference between Vitamin K and Natto K2 in this formula?
OsteoPrime Plus contains MenaQ7, an exclusive, patented, highly bioavailable form of Vitamin K2. Clinical studies have shown that it enhances calcium absorption and bone building function.
In fact, one study compared the bioavailability and absorption rates between vitamin K2 and vitamin K1. For six weeks participants received either vitamin K1 or vitamin K2 (as menaquinon-7). Researchers then compared the levels of blood levels of vitamin K in both groups. They found that the participants who took natural vitamin K2 had much higher blood levels of vitamin K compared those receiving vitamin K1.
OsteoPrime Plus provides a balanced combination of important nutrients to support arterial health and maintain healthy bones.
Why so many types of calcium in this formula?
Simply put, more forms of calcium ensure more complete availability in the body. Each calcium salt—that is, each calcium attached to a different mineral—offers differing quantities of elemental calcium. Elemental calcium is the "bottom line" amount of calcium you absorb from food or a supplement. And while some calcium/mineral combinations have more elemental calcium than others, they’re not always easy to absorb. For example, calcium lactate is about 32 percent absorbed while calcium citrate is approximately 30 percent absorbed. Tricalcium phosphate is an important addition to the formula because is the most prevalent form of calcium in human bone.
Why does OsteoPrime Plus contain MK7 rather than MK4?
OsteoPrime Plus contains exclusive Natto K2 in the form of MK7 (methaquinone 7). MK7 is much more bioactive and bioavailable than MK4. However, MK4 has been shown to have very high benefits in high doses. The MK7 in OsteoPrime Plus can give the benefits needed in a smaller dose, and thus why it is easily put into a bone health supplement.
Dr Alan Gaby, the co-creator of OsteoPrime Plus, states the following in regards to MK7 vs. MK4:
MK4 is used in Japan in very high doses (45mg/day) for bone health support.
In studies MK7 in small doses had improved benefits in regards to bone health, whereas large doses of MK4 were needed.
Long-term safety has not been determined with MK4.
MK7 has a longer half-life (it lasts longer in the body).
MK4 in small doses is of no significant value in helping to support bone health.
MK7 is the only form of vitamin K2 that is likely to have a beneficial effect when used in small doses.
Why would someone take OsteoPrime Plus instead of OsteoPrime?
OsteoPrime Plus is an ultimate bone support product. OsteoPrime Plus is designed for women or men with significant bone support needs. It contains exclusive Natto K2 which diverts calcium away from the arteries to the bones. OsteoPrime Plus contains key minerals, such as strontium for increased bone strength, not found in other bone support supplements.
Can you tell me why the calcium products don't mention that they need to be taken with food? I've heard that food improves absorption.
Calcium absorption varies based on many things, including the form of calcium as well as the presence of food in the digestive tract. While some research suggests that absorption might be a little better with food, it is not necessary to take calcium supplements with food to receive health benefits. If an individual has a sensitive stomach, we do recommend taking supplements with food to lessent the chance for stomach upset.

Good for your bones
OsteoPrime Plus review posted by Betty on 11/16/12
If you have bad bones because of medication, try this instead of bone hardners that are drugs with a lot of side effects. This is the best thing you can get. My Naturapathic doctor prescribed a professional one. This has the same ingredients and made from the same co. for almost half the price. Good deal!
OsteoPrime Plus review posted by Roger H. Lord on 9/5/12
I took a fall in June and broke an arm and a hip. I tripled my dose of osteoprimeplus (from 4 tablets one a day to 4 tablets three times a day. It helps in the healing process so much that I was in a wheel chair for two months instead of 7.
