Question: Hello, I'm wondering besides Calcium, Magnesium & D-3, do you know any other important supplements that can really help increase bone mass or bone density? (this is for my 58 year old mom)
We have quite a few options as far as bone health supplements. Let's take a look at some of the more popular bone supplements available at SwansonVitamins.com...
Vitamin K2 Menaquinone
Derived from 100% natural Japanese natto (a fermented soybean product), menaquinone-7 is scientifically proven to help promote bone and cardiovascular health by keeping calcium out of the arteries and getting it to where it really belongs—into the bones that need it. Vitamin K2 itself consists of 13 numbered natural substances called menaquinones of which primarily menaquinone-7 has been scientifically proven to benefit cardiovascular and bone health. Extensive research completed in the Netherlands indicates the natto-derived form of menaquinone-7 helps get calcium out of the arteries and into the bones—where it belongs.
Swanson Soy Isoflavones addresses cardiovascular maintenance, bone strength, menopausal discomfort, immune function and more. With 750 mg of SoyLife, soy germ complex standardized to two percent isoflavone content, our Soy Isoflavone capsules are an easy way to get a healthy supply of natural soy nutrition on a daily basis.
Bonolive is the first clinically evaluated olive-based bone health supplement that supports two fundamental bone health goals: promoting bone formation and supporting bone strength. Bonolive can also help complete any bone-supporting regimen by addressing an important factor other supplements do not. There are three primary categories of bone health supplements: minerals and proteins, which provide the building blocks for healthy bone; vitamins, which promote the utilization of minerals; and phytoestrogens like lignans and isoflavones, which promote hormonal balance (a factor especially important for women). Bonolive is in a class of its own. It actually works to support healthy bone metabolism and stimulate bone-building at the cellular level. None of the other supplements work in this manner.
KOACT Calcium Collagen Chelate
About 25 percent of bone structure is collagen. It contributes to bone strength by lending a certain amount of flexibility to the rigid structure, allowing bone to "give" a little under pressure. KoACT® unites calcium with collagen in a patented calcium collagen chelate—a complex shown to be more effective than either collagen or calcium alone. In preliminary clinical studies, KoACT® has demonstrated the ability to promote both bone density and bone strength with exciting results. Simple combination products don't measure up. KoACT® has the power to support bone strength and bone density naturally with its calcium collegen chelate.
