Botanical Bone Health Support
This formula contains extracts from the herb Cissus quadrangularis, which provides powerful support for bone health. Despite its ability to promote bone generation and strength, this extract is used in very few formulas. But it is in Dr. Strum’s Intensive Bone Formula.
Bone health is essential for an active, healthy lifestyle. This state-of-the-art bone health formula was created by renowned oncologist and prostate specialist Stephen B. Strum, M.D.
For those who need powerful bone support
This formula is specifically designed for individuals who need powerful nutritional support for bone health. A daily serving of 10 capsules includes these nine bone-healthy nutrients:
Potassium citrate — Favorably affects bone mineral density by buffering acidity and maintaining the healthy balance of bone breakdown and synthesis. Through a unique calcium-sparing process, potassium citrate encourages the availability of calcium the body needs for bone remodeling.1-5
Cissus quadrangularis — Extracts of this Ayurvedic herb (also called winged treebine) have been the focus of numerous scientific studies. It possesses powerful bone-health-promoting properties, including support for bone generation and strengthening capabilities, even in low estrogen conditions.6-12 Trials in humans have reported promising effects on bone health.13,14 Very few formulas contain this plant-based bone defender.
DimaCal® — A patented form of calcium that encourages calcium absorption.15
Vitamin D3 — Essential for facilitating the transport of calcium into the bone matrix. This is an important step in maintaining strong, healthy bones and teeth.
Vitamin K — Essential for transporting calcium from the bloodstream into the bone. Menaquinone-7 is a highly bioavailable form of this important nutrient.16,17 Working together with vitamin D, it helps maintain youthful calcium metabolism and bone mineralization.18
Magnesium and Zinc — Promotes healthy bone mineralization.19-22
Boron and Silica — Supports the bone matrix as it undergoes normal growth and turnover.23
