April 5, 2010 — Nutra Research Inc. has reintroduced its OsteoAid bone health supplement with the new and improved formula, containing Calcium MCHA and Vitamin K2. The popular bone-density supplement is available to healthcare professionals immediately.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) reports that research shows one out of every five women over the age of 50 have osteoporosis. And, about half of all women over the age of 50 will have a fracture of the hip, wrist, or vertebra (bones of the spine). (Osteoporosis is the thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density over time.)
As we get older it becomes more difficult for our bodies to absorb nutrients from our daily diet. OsteoAid is a formulation of key nutrients and minerals that have been identified as key factors in building and remodeling bone, and reducing bone loss.
Calcium and Vitamin D3 are recognized by the NIH as the most important mineral and vitamin our bodies need to strengthen bone. National nutrition surveys have shown that most people are not getting the calcium they need to grow and maintain healthy bones. The body needs Vitamin D to absorb calcium. Without enough Vitamin D, one can’t form enough of the hormone calcitriol (known as the “active vitamin D). This in turn leads to insufficient calcium absorption from the diet.
OsteoAid is formulated to provide three different sources of calcium: calcium MCHA (microcrystalline hydroxyapatite), coral calcium, and calcium citrate. Magnesium and vitamins K1 and K2 are also provided in OsteoAid.
