Bone Basics is a multi-nutrient combination designed to support bone health. It helps in the development and maintenance of teeth, cartilage and gums and helps in connective tissue formation, production and repair. It also aids in the maintenance of proper muscle function. Contains microcrystalline hydroxyapatite complex (MCHA), an extract of bovine bone derived from New Zealand pasture-fed, free-range livestock not subjected to routine antibiotics or rBGH. Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet, and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.Bone Basics is more than just a calcium supplement, it is a complete bone-building formulation that includes nutrients fundamental for maintaining mineral balance in the bone matrix and for supporting healthy joints. Bone Basics is unique because it serves not only to reduce bone loss but to maintain or even increase bone growth.The key ingredient is microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) complex, an extract of free-range New Zealand bovine bone (free from antibiotics and growth hormones) and a superior source of calcium and phosphorus. MCHA provides proteins, growth factors, and mucopolysaccharides that work together to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss. Additional nutrients include: vitamin C, vitamin D3, vitamin K2, boron, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and copper. These co-factors enhance the absorption and usage of calcium and support collagen production, which builds the framework for bone.
