Bone Basics is more than just a calcium supplement for bone health. It is a complete bone-building formulation that includes nutrients which are 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.
Bone Basics ™ is a multi-nutrient combination designed to support bone health, helps in the development and maintenance of teeth, cartilage and gums and helps in connective tissue formation, production and repair, and also helps in the maintenance of proper muscle function. It features a 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.
AOR™ guarantees that all ingredients have been declared on the label. Contains no wheat, gluten, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sulphites, mustard, dairy or eggs.
†Ossein microcrystalline hydroxyapatite complex (MCHC) is lyophilized bone meal guaranteed free of bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
Non-medicinal ingredients: sodium stearyl fumarate, hydroxypropycellulose and microcrystalline cellulose Capsule: hypromellose.
Take up to 6 capsules daily with meals, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. Take a few hours before or after taking other medications.
Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or taking blood thinners.
This product is known to be superior to your more standard calcium magnesium supplement since it adds other nutrients along with the calcium thought to be better for absorption and overall bone health. For example, it adds 400 mg of magnesium per dosage unlike the standard 200mg or less. At least 3 different leading health food stores have highly recommended it to me for this reason. So I give it a 5 for quality. The downside is that the capsules are absolutely the largest I have seen anywhere and I end up opening up the capsules and mixing the powder with water to drink. Add to that a mild taste of bone marrow since this is made from animal bone by product, I would encourage you to get a look at the size of the capsule before buying. I checked with the company about this and they have reassured me that drinking it as a powder is fine but recommend that it absorbs better if taken with food or a smoothie-so you can decide. It's also on the pricier end than other products (ie. New Roots has the same for a lower cost). For the new calcium combination that the company and stores boast about I am happy to continue to finish the product.
AOR makes the best supplements, and Bone Basics is a good all around supplement for bone health.
