Uses For OsteoBalance
†Osteoporosis Support Formula: OsteoBalance provides 1,200 mg of calcium per serving, combined with a comprehensive profile of important bone building nutrients. Randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled studies have reported statistically significant benefits of calcium supplementation for bone health and osteoporosis support†. Calcium malate and calcium citrate/malate are both highly bioavailable forms of calcium. In a two-year, double blind, placebo-controlled trial, calcium citrate/malate provided bone mass support for postmenopausal women with low dietary calcium intake. One study demonstrated that concomitant supplementation of the trace minerals zinc, copper, and manganese with calcium citrate/malate helped to promote proper bone metabolism in postmenopausal subjects. Magnesium supports healthy bone mineralization and boron plays an important role in reducing urinary calcium and magnesium excretion. Like boron, vitamin D reduces urinary calcium loss but is also a key nutrient because it enhances calcium absorption.*
