Bone Builder 180 veg caps

Featuring Ovocet, our Bone Builder contains an organic form of calcium that is more absorbable, natural and environmentally friendly. Other minerals such as magnesium, vitamin D and K help improve the bioavailability of calcium for bone construction, making it a very comprehensive formula for bones, especially in the elderly and in individuals who don’t consume enough dietary Calcium.

Your calcium supplement will not give you stronger bones. This WILL.

Did you know that most calcium supplements are either made from limestone or oyster shell which contains heavy metals?
Our calcium is derived from eggshell which is lead-free and easily absorbed by the body. The presence of protein carriers further enhance the absorption of calcium into the body. Magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin K2, boron, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium are also important elements for maintaining strong bones. The addition of Hypromellose helps slow down the release of ingredients, hence reducing the risk of gastrointestinal side-effects.

Why These Ingredients?

Magnesium works together with calcium. It contributes to bone stabilisation and mineralisation, where some have suggested a ratio of calcium and magnesium needs to be maintained for optimal bone health. Vitamin D facilitates the absorption of calcium and regulates bone resorption, without it, you could have low serum calcium levels even though your calcium intake is sufficient. Vitamin K2 on the other hand, helps utilize the calcium by activating calcium-binding proteins while at the same time, reducing calcium deposits in arteries [1]. Vitamin K2 is also divided into MK-4 and MK-7, where MK-7 has higher bioavailability.

The addition of less common ingredients such as boron is due to its effect of prolonging vitamin D half-life. Some have suggested a low level of Vitamin D to be associated with a low level of boron [2]. Zinc, copper, manganese and selenium, although less understood, appears to be able to promote bone regeneration, and a deficiency in these elements correlate to a lower bone mineral density.

Important Note:

It’s always a good idea to check with your doctor before commencing any supplements. Depending on each person, you may need a DEXA scan to obtain a bone T-score. In addition, a blood test for vitamin D levels may be needed. Calcium levels are usually unnecessary and instead would focus on your dietary intake of calcium.
