It is very important to know how to take care of your bones as you get older. Bone density can decrease as we get older, making us more susceptible to injury and weakness. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, nearly 54 million Americans suffer from Osteoporosis and low bone mass.
Osteoporosis is a bone disease where the body experiences bone loss or failure to grow new bone, resulting in a higher likelihood for injury or fracture. Low bone mass can affect one in two women and one in four men, aged fifty or older.
In order to keep the body healthy and the bones strong, you must take preventative measures and begin to strengthen your body.
Exercise is a great way to strengthen the muscles and in turn, strengthen bones. By exercising on a consistent basis, you will create strong muscles which will contribute to your overall bone health. A strong body means strong bones. Even just thirty minutes of exercise per day can foster total body strength and endurance levels needed to avoid the dangers of bone mass deterioration.
In addition to exercise, it is important to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. Many doctors recommend that your diet be rich in vitamin D and calcium, to develop strong bones and a healthy body. Occasionally, however, even a balanced diet can not provide enough essential nutrients for bone health. Thankfully, BLUESPRING has an all-natural supplement rich in the vitamins and minerals needed for strong and healthy bones.
Bone Support Formula contains essential ingredients like vitamins C, D-3, and K-2, all of which are required by the body for not only strong bones but other important functions like immune system support and blood cell reproduction. BLUESPRING has also included important minerals like Magnesium and Phosphorus, which work in tandem with Calcium to grow dense and powerful bones.
The combination of these carefully selected ingredients results in stronger bones and overall better health. A lot of people believe that taking calcium by itself will be enough to protect the bones from degeneration, but the body needs more than just calcium to efficiently strengthen and protect the bones. Bone Support Formula is an all-natural herbal dietary supplement aimed at incorporating all of the necessary ingredients for healthy bone growth and an overall healthy lifestyle.
Some of the healthy ingredients found in Bone Support Formula by BLUESPRING have been scientifically proven as natural remedies to help the body support bone health. The effectiveness of this formula is due to a unique blend of the highest quality ingredients.
VITAMIN C (AS ASCORBIC ACID)
Historically vitamin C has been used to build the immune system and prevent sickness. However, the bone benefits of vitamin C are commonly overlooked.
Vitamin C (as an ascorbic acid) promotes above average bone mass and decreased fracture rates. Vitamin C suppresses a type of bone-destroying cell called osteoclasts, while stimulating the production of bone-building cells called osteoblasts. Most osteoporosis drugs only suppress the bone destroying cells, but they do not feature vitamin C’s added benefits of stimulating the bone-building cells.
High vitamin C intake has been shown to lower 4-year bone loss in elderly men. Postmenopausal women who take vitamin C have increased bone mineral density (BMD), which can be further enhanced by also taking a combination of calcium and estrogen.
VITAMIN D-3 (AS CHOLECALCIFEROL)
Cholecalciferol, also known as vitamin D3, helps the body to absorb calcium through digestion. While supplementation is important, especially for the elderly, vitamin D3 is also produced by your body from sun exposure. Lack of vitamin D3 can lead to osteomalacia (a painful bone thinning disease), osteoporosis, increased fractures, and multiple sclerosis.
Despite the obvious benefits of having enough vitamin D3, it does not act alone to boost bone health. A combination of vitamin D and calcium is needed to suppress bone turnover.
VITAMIN K-2 (AS MENAQUINONE-7)
Vitamin K-2 is produced naturally in the human body. However, elderly patients can expect a reduction in their natural vitamin K-2 production. Low levels of vitamin K-2 can lead to osteoporosis, coronary heart disease, and severe aortic calcification.
Vitamin K-2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7) supports bone growth and helps to maintain bone density. Similar in function to Vitamin C, Vitamin K-2 (MK-7) suppresses a type of bone destroying cell called osteoclasts while stimulating the production of bone building cells called osteoblasts. However, vitamin K alone does not prevent osteoporosis. The benefits of vitamin K for bone health are increased when taken with vitamin D.
CALCIUM (AS CITRATE, HYDROXYAPATITE, FRUCTOBORATE)
Calcium was used as early as 14,000 BC in building materials. Additionally, calcium was used in casts to repair broken bones as far back as 975 AD.
Calcium Citrate has been shown to help bone density. Additionally, it is the easiest form of calcium to digest, can be taken with or without meals, and does not induce acid reflux. Also, the citrate may help with preventing kidney stones.
Hydroxyapatite, a mineral containing calcium, absorbs more efficiently than some other forms of calcium and contributes to up to 50% of bone weight. Hydroxyapatite has been shown to be more effective than calcium carbonate at inhibiting bone loss. Additionally, hydroxyapatite has been shown to improve bone mineral density (BMD).
Calcium fructoborate contributes to bone and joint health, has antioxidant properties, and reduces inflammation. Also, it enhances the effects of calcium and vitamin D.
PHOSPHORUS (AS HYDROXYAPATITE)
In Ancient Greece the term Phosphorus was used as the name for the planet Venus and is translated to, light-bringer or light carrier. It is sometimes referred to as “the Devil’s element” due to its use in explosives and poisons.
Phosphorus works with calcium to build strong bones. It also helps the body absorb vitamin D, magnesium, and zinc. There is a delicate balance in the body between phosphorus and calcium. Too much phosphorus in the body can be dangerous and requires supplementation of additional calcium. However, when the two are absorbed in correct proportion, they contribute to healthy bone density and the prevention of osteoporosis.
In addition to storing calcium, hydroxyapatite also includes phosphorus, magnesium, protein, other minerals, and amino acids all of which are found in bone tissue.
MAGNESIUM (AS OXIDE, CITRATE)
Magnesium, as part of Epsom Salts, was first discovered in 1618. The metal, by itself, was first produced in 1808.
Magnesium aids in bone formation and the regulation of vitamin D. Studies have shown that magnesium has positive effects on bone mineral density, especially in postmenopausal women.
Magnesium impacts both matrix and mineral bone metabolism. Low magnesium levels can stop bone growth, contribute to osteopenia, and increase bone fractures. Additional findings indicate that low magnesium levels may be a risk factor for osteoporosis.
Consuming higher levels of calcium increases the body’s need for magnesium. However, despite the continuous magnesium depletion by way of cyclical crop growth, magnesium is rarely added back into soil. Also, magnesium is lost during processing or cooking in many foods. These factors have contributed to decreasing levels of magnesium in most diets.
ZINC (AS MONOMETHIONINE)** BRANDED NAME L-OPTIZINC FROM INTERHEALTH USA
Documented use of zinc and zinc alloys have been dated as far back as 500 BC. However, the importance of zinc in nutrition was not realized until sometime around 1940.
Zinc levels within the bones decrease with age, especially in postmenopausal women and smokers. Zinc supports bone-building osteoblasts while suppressing bone-destroying osteoclasts. This function allows zinc to assist in improving bone mass.
For smokers, a toxic substance called cadmium is ingested upon inhalation and displaces zinc within bones. As smokers age, this cadmium can enter the brain where it can cause nerve damage. Increased zinc can remove cadmium from the body. Thus, former smokers need more zinc as they age to prevent cadmium poisoning.
L-OptiZinc contains the mineral zinc and a bioavailable “L” form of methionine, an amino acid. According to research this combination leads to better absorption and retention of zinc when compared to other oral zinc supplements.
COPPER (AS CITRATE)
Copper has been used for over 10,000 years in metallurgy. However, it also plays a biological and dietary role.
Copper is mostly stored in the bones and helps to join collagen and elastin. Copper deficiency can lead to osteoporosis and bone fractures so it is utilized to prevent and treat osteoporosis.
Copper may be beneficial in the treatment of osteoarthritis as well, however further studies are required.
Taking copper with zinc, manganese, and calcium can decrease bone loss, especially for postmenopausal women. Additional copper may be needed when taking zinc, iron, or vitamin C.
Copper citrate is used in supplements because it is more easily absorbed into the body than other forms of copper.
MANGANESE (AS CITRATE)
Manganese was used in Ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt for glassmaking. Today, it is mostly used in the production of batteries.
In addition to its industrial applications, manganese helps the body form bones. Decreased manganese can contribute to bone weakness and malformation. One study showed that taking manganese with calcium, zinc, and copper helped reduce spinal bone loss in women after menopause.
Manganese may increase levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD), an antioxidant that protects joints. When taken with glucosamine and chondroitin, it can reduce pain for those with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Manganese citrate is the preferred form of manganese for medications and supplements due to how easily it can be absorbed.
POTASSIUM (AS CITRATE)
Potassium was initially used to produce glass, bleach, soap and gunpowder. It was not until 1840 that potassium was recognized as an essential nutrient for plants. Eventually, potassium was found to be one of the most important bone nutrients in the human body.
Potassium neutralizes metabolic acids that deteriorate bone and it can positively impact bone mass and bone mineral density. The benefits of potassium on bone mass have been shown in pre and postmenopausal women, men, and the elderly.
Potassium helps to conserve calcium and phosphorus in the body. It has also been proven to reduce bone breakdown and stimulate new bone formation in postmenopausal women.
Potassium citrate is the preferred form of potassium for medications and supplements due to its ease of absorption.
BORON (AS CALCIUM FRUCTOBORATE)
Like manganese and potassium, boron is used in the production of glass. It is also used in detergents and bleaching formulas. Additionally, boron is used as an insecticide against cockroaches, ants, and fleas. Boron also has important pharmaceutical applications and plays a biological role in bone health.
Calcium and calcium fructoborate contain a form of boron. Due to chemical fertilizers, the presence of naturally occurring boron is diminishing in soil and foods. This has contributed to a global increase in arthritis.
Calcium fructoborate has antioxidant properties, reduces inflammation, and contributes to bone and joint health. Additionally, it regulates estrogen and testosterone, further contributing to bone health.
Studies have shown that calcium fructoborate has provided significant reduction in pain and stiffness in osteoarthritis patients. For osteoporosis patients, calcium fructoborate has proven to reduce bone pain and improve calcium metabolism.
HORSETAIL EXTRACT (EQUISETUM ARVENSE) AERIAL PART
Horsetail extract (also known as Equisetum arvense) has been used as an herbal remedy for thousands of years. It has been on this planet for more than 100 million years!
Horsetail extract contains silicon. Silicon is an important component in strengthening bone, improving bone density, and improving overall bone health. One study confirms that horsetail may improve bone density and strengthen connective tissue. Thus, it may be beneficial for patients with osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis.
Betaine Hydrochloride is a digestive enzyme that can assist in the absorption of other vitamins and minerals. It helps the body absorb calcium and potassium. Additionally, it is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis.
Betaine Hydrochloride is linked to healthy homocysteine levels. Homocysteine facilitates a healthy bone metabolism. Bone metabolism is the ongoing process where mature bone tissue is replaced with new bone tissue. This process occurs throughout a person’s lifetime. However, it also occurs when the body repairs broken bones and fractures.
Several studies have indicated Betaine Hydrochloride may be useful as a treatment for osteoporosis.
Other Ingredients: Cellulose, stearic acid, modified cellulose, magnesium stearate, silica.

Nutritional supplements work differently for different people. If your body is depleted from essential nutrients you might start to feel noticeably better in a short period of time.
If you are healthy and your nutrition is good – you might not feel physically different but have the mental assurance you know you are preventing future potential problems.
Our bodies are different; it is advised that you stay with the recommended dosage and read the tips for lifestyle improvements to get the very best results.
Recent studies have shown that calcium is not enough. Without the right co-factors it is not absorbed and an excessive amount is lost in urine. These co-factors are D-3, Vitamin C and others. Bone Support formula is made from combining these essential nutrients, minerals and botanicals to build maximum bone health. Because of this it would be better to take Bone Support than Calcium alone.I NOTICED THAT BONE SUPPORT FORMULA IS A TABLET, AND I DON’T LIKE TAKING PILLS, WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?
Since most of our customers started with our Super Blue Stuff OTC topical pain relief cream, we hear this often. There are many who don’t like taking pills. However, we have found that Bone Support Formula can help your body achieve a healthy balance from the inside while Super Blue Stuff OTC will relieve your pain topically. This along with Joint Support Formula will help you build maximum joint and bone health while relieving the pain.
If you have a hard time with tablets – even at meals - we suggest that you grind the tablet with a mortar and pestle or crush it with the back of a spoon or purchase a pill crusher online or at your local pharmacy. Then it can be sprinkled on your food and taken more easily than a whole tablet.
Another alternative will be to break the tablet in half making it easier to swallow with your meals.
It is our opinion that if you can make this work for a while, then the benefits will prove to be worth it.HOW DO I STORE THIS PRODUCT?
