Ideally, we would get the optimal supply of supplemental nutrients from the food we eat. But for most of us, that’s just not possible — even when we’re doing our very best to eat well. Plus, most people don’t realize how critical specific nutrients are for the absorption of other nutrients. Without this synergistic effect, your body can’t absorb certain nutrients and won’t get the benefits.

When choosing your supplements, go with a medical-grade multivitamin/mineral formulated specifically for bone health, and make sure it contains balanced, therapeutic levels of these nutrients in their most bioavailable forms.

Our exclusive Better Bones Basics is formulated with ideal amounts of vitamin D, calcium and magnesium and also includes other essential bone-building minerals at therapeutic levels, along with nutrients to optimize absorption and bone-building support.

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D — and specifically the hormone our body produces from vitamin D — is the most important regulator of calcium absorption. People with low vitamin D absorb 65% less calcium than those with adequate levels of this vitamin. Osteoporotic fractures are much more common in folks with low levels of vitamin D, though fracture incidence can be dramatically reduced with vitamin D supplementation.

Vitamin K

Emerging research is showing vitamin K2 as MK-7 (menaquinone-7) is one of the keys for building bone strength, helping to prevent osteoporosis, protecting the heart, and even reducing mortality. For example, K2 is involved in preventing fractures in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. An analysis of the results of 19 different studies focusing on postmenopausal women with osteoporosis showed that vitamin K2 plays a role in improvement of the vertebral bone mineral density and the prevention of fractures.
 
Calcium 

Your body contains more calcium than any other mineral — making up about 2% of your total adult body weight. It’s stored in your bones and teeth, and the skeleton itself is a reserve of calcium. If your body doesn’t get the calcium it needs from food or supplementation, it takes it from the skeleton and weakens your bones.

Magnesium

​​Magnesium assures the strength and firmness of bones and makes teeth harder. It’s one of the key nutrients needed to ensure calcium is both optimally absorbed and best utilized by the body. It’s also necessary for converting vitamin D into its active form. What’s more, magnesium is required for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body.

Zinc

Zinc helps produce the matrix of collagen protein threads upon which the all-important bone-forming calcium–phosphorus compound is deposited. It’s also necessary for the production of enzymes that degrade and recycle worn-out bits of bone protein. Zinc deficiency is problematic because it prevents full absorption of calcium. Low levels have been closely linked with the development of osteoporosis.

Manganese

Manganese is often overlooked as an important ingredient in good bone health, and there’s not even an RDA for manganese. However, research shows clearly that manganese is a co-factor in the formation of bone cartilage and bone collagen, as well as in bone mineralization.

Boron

​​The benefits of boron for bone health have only recently been discovered. Your body requires boron for proper metabolism and utilization of various bone-building factors, including calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, estrogen, and perhaps testosterone. Overall studies show boron has a mineral-conserving and estrogen-enhancing effect, especially among women with low magnesium intake.

Directions Take two (2) tablets two times daily with meals, or as directed by your doctor. If you are sensitive to supplements, start with two (2) tablets per day with a meal for one week, then increase to the recommended dose. If you experience digestive issues or loose stools, reduce to two (2) tablets per day with a meal. After symptoms abate, return to the recommended dose and consider adding a probiotic or l-glutamine to your regimen.
