Dr Sears' Zone Bone Support, 90 softgel caps, dose 3 per day.
Bone Support is specifically formulated to provide superior nutrient
bioavailability and complete nutritional support to help maintain
healthy bones. Bone Support is a synergistic combination of six sources
of calcium which promotes absorption of calcium.1 Bone Support also contains magnesium, an essential mineral which assists in optimal bone formation.2
In addition, Zone Bone Support contains Vitamin D, boron, vitamin K and
horse tail to maximize the body’s utilization of calcium to help
enhance bone formation. Vitamin D is directly involved in calcium
metabolism;3 boron is necessary for the action of vitamin D;4 vitamin K acts as a coenzyme in the synthesis of proteins involved with bone formation;5 and the herb horse tail is among the richest sources of the mineral silicon, which can also play a role in bone structure.6,7*
- Six sources of calcium including carbonate, citrate, gluconate,
aspartate, malate, and micronized hydroxyapatite to maximize calcium
- 400mg of magnesium to balance calcium for optimal bone strength
- Vitamin D, vitamin K, boron, and horse tail are synergistic nutrients working to support bone health
- Softgel allows for greater bioavailability
