Did you know we naturally begin to lose bone density in our early 30’s?

Early signs include brittle hair, poor tooth enamel and weak nails. Without proper nutritional support, stooped posture, decreased mobility and increased risk for osteoporosis will occur more rapidly. And while Calcium and Vitamin D have long been recommended, studies now show they are not enough.

Based on leading research, greens+ bone builder formula contains a synergistic blend of vitamins (including Vitamins D3, C and B12), antioxidants (such as Lycopene) and minerals (including 3 highly absorbable forms of Calcium), greens+ bone builder helps to:

* Stimulate bone formation (via osteoblasts)
* Inhibit cells which break down bone (osteoclasts)
* Promote alkalinity in the body to retain minerals, prevent oxidative stress and maximize Calcium absorption
* Reduce risk for osteoporosis, bone fractures, curvature of the spine

Facts about bone health

* There are 206 bones in the human body
* The period between adolescence and the early 30s is crucial for establishing bone mass. Without proper nutritional support, bone density decreases more rapidly with age
* Over 10 million North Americans have osteoporosis, and more than 35 million have low bone mass – with these numbers increasing annually
* A diet lacking proper nutrients can result in increased bone and joint deterioration, often not detected without X-Rays or standardized blood tests
* When nutrients are restored in the form of vitamins, minerals, proteins and healthy fats, bone repair and bone-building capabilities can resume

Why Calcium supplementation is not enough
Although Calcium and Vitamin D3 supplementation has been long regarded as the ‘gold standard’ to promote stronger, healthier bones, new research shows there are other specific vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with significant bone-building properties.

These include: Vitamins B12, C and K, Folic Acid, Zinc and Lycopene.
Many of these can be found in natural foods such as dark leafy greens, deep coloured fruits, grains, nuts and seeds. Unfortunately, the typical diet is lacking in these foods, making supplementation vitally important.

Only greens+ bone builder contains all of these ingredients (and more) in research-proven dosages. Due to the synergy of these nutrients, greens+ bone builder can help:

* Reduce your risk for osteoporosis
* Increase bone mineral density
* Improve bone formation
* Enhance Calcium absorption and retention

Who should take greens+ bone builder?
Whether you are male or female, as you age your bone density mass naturally decreases. This is why greens+ bone builder makes an ideal supplement for nearly everyone, including:

* Those with a family history of, or genetic disposition for osteoporosis
* Those who have osteoporosis or low bone density
* Those who want to improve and protect their posture and mobility
* Those with poor teeth enamel, weak hair and nails
* Those with a diet lacking essential nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals

The ingredients that make greens+ bone builder work

Per 14.7g serving of greens+ bone builder or 3 tablets of bone builder

Note: greens+ bone builder also contains a full serving of greens+

Calcium (formate 200mg; citrate-malate: 150mg; bisglycinate: 150mg):
New research shows Calcium citrate-malate, long recommended for bone health is not enough. Two new forms: Calcium formate and bisglycinate, provide greater benefits due to their enhanced solubility. For maximum bioavailability and effectiveness, greens+ bone builder contains all 3 forms of Calcium.
Studies show a direct link between higher Magnesium intake and higher bone density in older adults. Like greens+, Magnesium promotes alkalinity in the body, thereby decreasing the risk for urinary Calcium loss.
Vitamin D3:
A major influencer on Calcium status, Vitamin D3 increases absorption from the intestines and helps prevent Calcium loss through the kidneys. Population studies show dietary Vitamin D3, either from supplementation or sunlight exposure, increases protection against osteoporosis and fractures.
Vitamin C (calcium and magnesium ascorbate):
Essential for collagen (important strengthening component within bones) and bone formation. Population studies show low Vitamin C is associated with lower bone mass and elevated fracture risk. greens+ bone builder specifically contains a non-acidic form of Vitamin C (calcium and magnesium ascorbate).
Folic Acid, B12 and B6:
Adequate Folic Acid, Vitamins B12 and B6 status is associated with healthier bone mass. In addition to increasing bone forming cells, they actively lower homocysteine – now recognized as a major risk factor for osteoporosis and bone fractures.
Research shows supplemental Silicon slows natural bone loss with aging. Silicon helps promote bone forming cells (osteoblasts). It also binds and removes Aluminum from the body which is associated with Calcium loss. greens+ bone builder contains Silicon from horsetail to provide a natural, food-based source.
Boron (FruiteX B® OsteoboronTM):
Boron is critically important for bone health as it helps prevent Calcium and Magnesium loss and assists in the metabolism of Vitamin D3. Human studies show that the target dose for Boron to increase bone mass is 3mg (as found in greens+ bone builder).
Zinc, Copper, Manganese:
These minerals are essential co-factors which help enzymes work properly – including the manufacture of bone tissue. Deficiencies in these nutrients have profound effects on overall bone mass density. Intervention studies show these nutrients to be more beneficial in bone loss versus Calcium alone.
L-Lysine is an amino acid that has been shown to promote osteoblasts, improve Calcium absorption from the GI tract, and prevent Calcium loss from the kidneys. Due to its ability to increase bone mass, it is a recommended supplement for adults with osteoporosis.
One of the most important antioxidant minerals – particularly with research linking high levels of oxidative stress in today’s environment to compromised bone health. In a large study (over 1200 subjects) those with the highest Selenium intake were 73% less likely to suffer a hip fracture versus those with the lowest intake.
In studies conducted at the University of Toronto, Lycopene has been shown to stimulate bone formation by osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) and has an inhibitory effect on the cells which break down bone mass (osteoclasts). Following these studies, researchers from Australia also showed higher dietary Lycopene intake with the prevention of bone loss in adults.
