What Is It?
This combination product contains vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that help to strengthen bone, a living tissue that requires constant upkeep. Most important in the combination, is calcium, which ensures that bones stay healthy and strong. Also crucial is vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium from foods, and prevents calcium loss in the urine. The mineral magnesium is essential for assisting bone in creating new calcium crystals. Of course, these and other key nutrients (from vitamin K to trace minerals such as manganese, boron, and zinc) can be taken individually. But for greater ease, a bone-building formula combining them all can be very convenient.
For more information on the individual vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients found in the combination, see the separate entries in the WholeHealth Chicago Reference Library.
The amount of each individual ingredient in bone-building formulas is quite small. So the best approach for anyone concerned about possible interactions with a specific drug or dietary supplement is to refer to the separate entries (calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, vitamin K, and so on) in our WholeHealth Chicago Reference Library.
See individual entries in the WholeHealth Chicago Reference Library for cautions about specific ingredients contained in your bone-building formula.
