By the age of 60, almost ½ of women will have osteoporosis and men have bone loss of about 1% per year after age 60. Menopause, andropause, vitamin D deficiency, calcium deficiency, smoking, alcohol, lack of exercise, certain medications and genetics are all risk factors for osteoporosis. Traditional medications for osteoporosis have serious side effects (necrosis of the jaw, acid reflux, atrial fibrillation) but still build bone, but the bone is not strong.

Calcium - necessary to build the matrix of bone, can decrease bone loss by 30% to 50% in the correct doses. Calcium also helps make cholesterol available to aid in the production of sex hormones. Be sure to have your levels checked routinely, as you can have too much.
Vitamin D - increases absorption of the calcium and increased bone building and mineralization
Boron - needed for calcium metabolism, also helps activate estrogen and vitamin D. Overall, it increases mineral content in bone and also increases cartilage formation.
Vitamin K2 (product coming soon)– increase bone mineralization
Vitamin C - increases calcium absorption by 100%
Magnesium - increases absorption of calcium, activates vitamin D, decreases bone breakdown, activates bone building and increases mineralization density
Vitamins B6, B12 and Folic Acid – deficiencies linked to osteoporosis and high homocysteine levels. Elevated homocysteine interferes with collagen cross-linking leading to a defective bone matrix.
Strontium – promotes bone formation and decreases bone resorption.
Hormones that influence bone growth (Click here to learn more about Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy)
Progesterone - helps build bone
Estrogen - increases the absorption of calcium and helps build bone structure. Studies have shown that estrogen is equal to oral bisphosphonates in controlling bone turnover and increasing bone density in postmenopausal women.
Testosterone - helps build bone
DHEA – increases bone growth
