Powerful Multinutrient Bone-Health System •Builds-On Studied Bone-Up Formula* •100% Ossein Hydroxyapatite Complex: Source of natural bone-growth factors •Same As Original Bone-Up Plus: Glucosamine, MSM, curcumin & SDG flax lignans
Ultra Bone-Up is a comprehensive nutritional regimen for healthy bones and joints.* It starts with calcium from bovine bone, using the finest source available: chemical-free, range-grazed, young New Zealand or Australian cattle. The source is Ossein Hydroxyapatite Complex (OHC), the protein-containing calcium complex found in cow bone, which has not been ashed so as to retain its special organic matrix. OHC alone has been shown to support bone density in humans.*
OHC produces a more prolonged calcium balance than do soluble calcium salts. It provides both organic and inorganic bone constituents: calcium, phosphorous and trace amounts of zinc, strontium, silicon and iron, plus amino acids and aminoglycans. Bone-building is enhanced by the presence of an organic matrix and a microcrystalline structure from which minerals can be released.*
Magnesium (Mg), another under-consumed mineral, is necessary for skeletal health with 60 percent of bodily stores found in bone. Women with failing bone health tend to show diminished magnesium levels. Mg influences the secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH), a critical regulator of calcium homeostasis affecting bone turnover. Mg is also necessary for the hydroxylation of dietary vitamin D, a process that converts it into the bioactive form called calcitriol.*
Vitamin D helps regulate the absorption and excretion of calcium and phosphorous, necessary elements for producing bone-mineral, hydroxyapatite. It also stimulates the synthesis of osteocalcin--a protein directly involved in bone mineralization and calcium homeostasis. Numerous studies have shown that vitamin D intake promotes balanced remodeling and strong bone-building from childhood through senescence.*
Vitamin K is essential for the carboxylation (i.e. activation) of specific bone proteins needed for building bones.* Vitamin K also discourages unwanted calcium deposition in arteries.* Vitamin K2, especially as menaquinone-7 (MK-7), is the more bioavailable form of vitamin K. K2 has a significantly longer biological half-life, remaining in circulation much longer than vitamin K1. MK-7 is the type of vitamin K found in natto, a fermented soybean product.
Zinc and manganese are present in small quantities in bone and help maintain the activity of bone-building cells, osteoblasts.* Vitamin C helps form collagen, the connective tissue that makes-up about 1/3 the weight of bone and imparts flexibility and durability.* In addition, the enzyme responsible for further strengthening (i.e. cross-linking) collagen-fibers requires copper. Boron has been shown to reduce urinary losses of calcium and magnesium when daily intake reaches 3mg/day. Finally, potassium helps support alkalization of the body so it is less apt to dissolve bone to neutralize an overly acidic systemic pH.*
Ultra Bone-Up also includes curcumin, resveratrol, glucosamine, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), and flax lignans for additional bone-health support.* Curcumin beneficially modulates inflammation response and promotes proper bone turnover.* Resveratrol is known to promote bone formation by stimulating osteoblast activity and proliferation while modulating bone turnover.* Glucosamine and MSM, best known as joint health nutrients, help support health at the bone-joint interface.* MSM may also further help dissolve and disperse the components of Ultra Bone-Up after ingestion.* Flax lignans are phytoestrogens that can help bolster the activity of bone-building cells.*
Living Formula for a Living Skeleton
The Original Bone-Up was first introduced over twenty years ago, but similar to your bones Bone-Up remains alive and dynamic. As bone research uncovers additional insights about bone health, the entire Bone-Up family of products is updated to reflect those advances. Often imitated, the Bone-Up family remains the tried and trusted leader for bone health.*
If you have a medical condition, are pregnant, lactating, trying to conceive, or taking medications (especially warfarin/Coumadin), consult your health care practitioner before using this product.
Adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
