Osteo Complex
60 /120 Capsules • 645 mg
Calcium is the most abundant and essential mineral in the human body. Of the two or three pounds of calcium contained in the average body, 99% is located in the bones and teeth. Calcium is needed to form bones and teeth and is also required for blood clotting, transmission of signals in nerve cells, and muscle contraction. The importance of calcium for preventing osteoporosis is probably its most well-known role. Calcium may also play a therapeutic role in various conditions.

Osteo Complex™ is a combination of calcium hydroxyapatite complex, citrate, vitamins, and vegetables high in calcium content. Clinical studies have shown that hydroxyapatite complex possesses distinct and superior advantages over other calcium preparations.

Microcrystalline hydroxyapatite is a naturally occurring form of mineral calcium apatite (calcium, phosphorous, and oxygen) that grows in hexagonal crystals. Pure hydroxyapatite is white in color. It constitutes most of the human bone structure, builds tooth enamel, and accumulates in tiny amounts in part of the brain. Although the majority of scientists and researchers have known hydroxyapatite for some time, recent developments in the area of materials science have made it more practical to use in the medical field as well as in nutritional medicine. Hydroxyapatite is a bioactive material stimulating a beneficial response from the body, particularly bonding to a host tissue such as bones.

Another mineral playing a significant role in bone development is magnesium. Several studies with animals have proven that magnesium depletion alters bone and mineral metabolism, which results in bone loss and osteoporosis. Magnesium deficiency is very common in women with osteoporosis compared to healthy individuals with levels of magnesium within range.

A combination of calcium with vitamin D3 forms the basis of preventive and therapeutic regimens for osteoporosis. A number of studies have suggested that the intake of calcium and vitamin D3 is effective when administered at respective dosages. Overall, combining calcium and vitamin D3 appears to be effective in reducing the incidence of fractures. An important finding has determined that vitamin D levels are inadequate in more than half of women treated for osteoporosis in the US and Europe. Calcium citrate formulations may help to prevent abdominal discomfort or flatulence, as well as minimize the risk of renal calculus formation.

The health benefits of vitamin K2 as MK-7 have been recognized by researchers. MK-7 promotes bone health and many more potential benefits. MK-7 has positive effects on blood vessels. A study of 564 postmenopausal women found that intake of vitamin K2 was associated with reduced coronary calcification. Another study found that daily intake of 90 mcg of MK-7 lowered the progression of carotid artery atherosclerosis.

Organic spinach and kale are rich in calcium, magnesium, and iron. They also provide important vitamins and healthy carbohydrates.
