OsteoBlast is a rich source of calcium specially formulated for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and for maintaining healthy and strong bones throughout life.
A number of vitamins and minerals are required to make and maintain healthy bones. These include:
Calcium is an essential nutrient that is required for strong bones and for supporting the body's critical functions, such as, controlling blood pressure to maintaining the heart beat. Ninety-nine percent of the body's calcium is stored in the bones and teeth. This calcium makes up the ‘bone bank’. Throughout our lifetime, calcium is ‘deposited’ in (with the help of osteoblast cells) and ‘withdrawn’ (by osteoclast cells) from the bone bank depending on needs. When dietary calcium intake is too low, the body will ‘withdraw’ the calcium it needs from the bones. Over time, if more calcium is taken out of the bones than is put in, then this can result in thin and weak bones or osteoporosis.
Magnesium is involved in calcium transport and can affect bone resorption and mineralisation.
Copper slows bone turnover by inhibiting osteoclast activity.
Manganese is required for the development of the skeleton (bones). It has been observed that, manganese levels are lower in women with osteoporosis.
Zinc is vital for growth and development. Deficiency can result in growth retardation as well as reduced osteoblast activity and the synthesis of collagen and chondroitin.
Boron can have anti-osteoporotic activity and can affect calcium and vitamin D metabolism. It can also increase the effect of oestrogen on bone – oestrogen has osteoprotective effects.Silicon is required for healthy connective tissue, bones and teeth.
Vitamin D assists in the absorption and re-absorption of calcium. It is particularly important for the development of the skeleton and bone mineralization. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to softening of the bones. It also increases the mobilisation of stem cells to become osteoblasts – see Vitamin D3 1000IU fact sheet for more information.
Vitamin K activates osteocalcin, a protein produced by osteoblasts that attracts calcium to bones. High dietary intake of vitamin K can reduce the risk of fractures in women.
Betacarotene (or provitamin A) is a precursor to Vitamin A, which is required for normal growth and maintenance of skeletal tissues.
Directions for Use
Adults & children: Take one tablet, with a meal low in protein, once or twice a day.
Do not exceed more than 500mg of calcium, from all sources, at any one time. Research has shown that, the body can’t absorb more than 500mg of calcium at any given time
