Building and maintaining strong and healthy bones largely depends on the optimal production of collagen, a protein that forms the basic structure of the bone and determines its strength. This protein creates the foundation for a proper deposition of calcium and other minerals that give the bone its characteristic solid and hard appearance. Bone cells need specific vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other micronutrients to support optimal collagen formation and mineral deposition. A chronic deficiency of these micronutrients can lead to mineral depletion in the bones and their weakening.
The Dr. Rath Healthy Bones Synergy Formula is built on our pioneering research in applying biological nutrient synergy for maximum health benefits. It contains essential nutrients that support optimum absorption and utilization of vital components for maintaining bone density and stability and the strength of our skeleton.*
Dr. Rath Healthy Bones Synergy Formula has been developed from the Osteoforte formula.
Key Synergy Nutrients: Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Calcium, Magnesium, Boron, Manganese, Vitamin K2, Lysine, Cysteine, Soy isoflavones and others.
Vitamin C: Supports the production of collagen, a basic functional component of the bone essential for proper disposition of minerals.
Vitamin D: Enhances the absorption of calcium from the digestive system, kidneys, parathyroid glands and maintains the optimum balance of calcium and other minerals for building bones. Moreover, vitamin D also has direct action on the osteoblastic cells which promote new bone formation.
Copper: In addition to its antioxidant properties, copper increases the effectiveness of vitamin D and calcium, thereby improving the structure and strength of human bones. As a cofactor in collagen synthesis, copper is essential for the formation of bones and other connective tissue.
Calcium, Magnesium, Boron: Required for proper mineralization of the bones, their density and strength. Boron also increases the absorption of calcium from the digestive system and the metabolism of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and copper in the body.
Collagen hydrolysate: Increases osteoblast activity, contributes to bone remodeling and supports the structure and strength of bones. Collagen is the necessary ingredient needed to maintain joint cartilage.
N-acetyl-D-Glucosamine: Needed for the optimum production of glycosaminoglycans key components of connective tissue. N-acetyl-D-Glucosamine also helps in cartilage and synovial fluid formation.
Chondroitin sulfate: Needed to ensure the integrity and function of the connective tissue required for building healthy bones and joints.
