Bone Support Formula is a comprehensive, synergistic formulation of essential vitamins and minerals designed to support healthy bone density. It provides 100% of the daily value for calcium and magnesium and also contains 1000 IU of Vitamin D-3 and 45 mcg of Vitamin K-2 to maximize calcium absorption and utilization.
According to the Center for Disease Control, more than 27 million mature adults suffer from osteoarthritis, with the highest incidences of affliction in persons between 60 and 90 years of age. OA is most commonly called "wear and tear" arthritis, affecting joints in the ankles, hands, hips, knees, wrists and spine.
Pain, stiffness in joints, and decreased flexibility are annoying symptoms of osteoarthritis, but Bone Support Formula is a safe, natural, easy pathway to help the body gain relief from this insidious disorder. A combination of nutrients, minerals and botanical extracts work together to strengthen bones, keep cartilage pliable, and preserve muscle tone. The precise synergism of the elements that are found in the Bone Support Formula helps the body stimulates vital bone density to fortify and prevent fractures in mature men and women.
Arthritis in some form affects the wellness of nearly half of all Americans over the age of 50 and doctors report osteoarthritis is the most common bone disorder among aging patients. People who repetitively move certain joints at work are more susceptible to osteoarthritis and postmenopausal women are affected even more than men.
The combination of healthy natural ingredients in Bone Support Formula have been developed to work in harmony with each other to produce the best possible results to help the body for relief of osteoarthritis pain and increased bone health.
Focus on bone health now for future prevention of disabling bone disorders such as osteoporosis and osteomalacia. This formula is scientifically blended to help the body fortify itself address the most debilitating osteoarthritis symptoms:
The Bone Support Formula also aids in the prevention of these symptoms by supplementing the body with a good diet of healthy organic vitamins and minerals necessary for strong bones, pliable connective tissues, and proper levels of amino acids and electrolytes in the body.
The risk of osteoarthritis in the later years of life can be reduced by living a healthy lifestyle to keep your spine and joints in the best possible condition as you age. Of course, biological predisposition, and your particular history of bone and joint injuries, has a certain amount to do with how your body matures, but to a large degree, lifestyle has the most predominant effect on development of osteoarthritis.
Obesity Stresses Joints
We live in a society that promotes indulgence, particularly when it comes to fast food consumption, and the most obvious manifestation of overzealous eating in the U.S. population is obesity. Overweight persons are subject to more joint problems because the bones and connective tissues are stressed. Doctors recommend eating a nutritious diet and adding supplements, if prescribed, to promote healthy bone and joint maintenance.
Inactivity Welcomes Joint Disorders
To keep your joints pliable and lubricated, you need to keep moving. Lack of movement causes bones to lose density and weaken. The muscles that support the skeleton and the connective tissues in joints are compromised. Inactivity invites osteoarthritis. If you have already been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, exercise is even more important to keep joints strong and to strengthen skeletal musculature.
Injuries Invite Osteoarthritis
As we age and become more inactive, we become more susceptible to falls, sprains, and joint stress. Protect your body by paying attention to your overall physical condition. Prescription medication can cause dizziness, inattention, and confusion that can lead to accidents. Ill-fitting or defective prostheses can cause falls. Failing eyesight and degraded hearing may also contribute to accidental injuries that can lead to osteoarthritis. Be aware of your limitations and take precautions to prevent injury.
Remember the RED Rule
RED stands for Relaxation, Exercise, and Diet. Osteoarthritis prevention depends on all three of these important elements.
Rest and Relax
Getting a proper amount of sleep helps the body to keep all systems functioning as they should. Stress and depression often lead to sleeplessness, so treatment for emotional trauma is as important as physical treatment.
Strenuous physical exercise is not required for good bone health. However, inactivity breeds disorder. Find a good balance that fits your lifestyle as you age. Engage in daily exercise that is pleasing to you such as walking, swimming, dancing or golf. Avoid being a couch potato, but take an afternoon nap if it suits you.
A good diet is more essential to good health than anything else you do. Focus on eating well balanced meals, avoiding junk food, keeping your caloric intake at a lower level and supplementing your diet with appropriate vitamins and minerals. This will go a long way toward preventing osteoarthritis or making the condition more livable if you suffer from its symptoms.
For the past decade, Americans have spent more on non-pharmaceutical treatments for osteoarthritis than any other disease. A wide array of homeopathic and natural treatments has been tested with varying results. Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate, important cellular building blocks in body cartilage, are the most commonly used dietary supplements, and these compounds have shown in clinical trials that they reduce osteoarthritis symptoms. These ingredients are both found in Joint Support Formula by BLUESPRING.
The natural vitamins and minerals that make up the Bone Support Formula have been individually and collectively tested and have not only properties that help the body better deal with pain, but help the body aid in prevention of bone disorders and promote regeneration of bone tissue in the body.
More than a home remedy, this is a scientifically formulated supplement that addresses the full spectrum of bone health. It is a safe alternative to a regimen of pharmaceutical analgesics, narcotics, and steroids that can eventually cause liver and kidney damage. At present, there is no cure for osteoarthritis, but there is genuine relief of its symptoms and along with a healthy approach to living, natural remedies can help fortify the body against this insidious disease.
The May 2013 issue of "Harvard Women's Health Watch" examined several of the therapies that may challenge medical thinking about how the degenerative disease of osteoarthritis is treated. For the past 30 years, research has been focused on cartilage as the cause of osteoarthritis treatment, but now the bone and the collagen in the joints are getting more attention. As the entire skeletal system is viewed as an integrated system, new techniques for treatment and prevention are coming to the surface. Pharmaceuticals have been tested that appear to inhibit the activity of the osteoclasts, which break down bone. Naturally occurring Vitamin C and Zinc found in the Bone Support Formula also inhibit osteoclasts.
Nutritional Supplementation for Osteoarthritis is Helpful
Patients suffering from osteoarthritis consistently show deficiencies in some essential nutrients, and dietary supplements should be taken, where appropriate, to ensure patients are receiving adequate levels of these vitamins and minerals:
Vitamin K Shown to be Effective in Treating Osteoarthritis
The Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University has studied the properties of Vitamin K for treatment of osteoarthritis. Vitamin K2 is a fat-soluble vitamin created naturally in the body through synthesis by intestinal bacteria, and includes vitamin K variations known as menaquinones, which have the ability to bind free calcium ions and assist in bone mineralization.
Research identified three isolated proteins in the human bone cells which depend on Vitamin K for metabolism: Osteocalcin, Matrix Gla protein (MGP), and Protein S. Osteocalcin is the essential protein synthesized by bone building osteoblasts and it is dependent on an active Vitamin D isotope Calcitriol. Osteocalcin is related to bone mineralization and depends on Vitamin K. MGP is present in bone, cartilage, collagen and other soft tissues such as blood vessels. It prevents soft tissue and cartilage calcification and promotes normal bone growth. Protein S is an anticoagulant that is synthesized by osteoblasts, and wholly dependent on adequate levels of Vitamin K, but there is no clear evidence of its role in either helping or harming bone tissue.
Another Vitamin K-dependent protein identified in studies is called Gas6. This protein has been found in cartilage, but also appears in the nervous system, heart, lungs, stomach, and kidneys. Protein Gas6 appears to function as a cellular growth regulator and is important in cell adhesion, cell proliferation, and protection against osteoclasts.
Vitamin K deficiency in healthy adults is uncommon, but it does occur. Menaquinones (Vitamin K2) are naturally synthesized in the intestine, but patients, who are prescribed certain medications such as blood thinners, and individuals who have hepatic damage, or low motility rates may exhibit Vitamin K deficiencies sufficient to interfere with bone cell synthesis.
Where can I get more information?
The Bone Support Formula is a new addition to the genuine, all natural products offered by BLUESPRING Wellness, a company dedicated to "Blending Safe Science and Common Sense." Following all FDA and GMP guidelines, every BLUESPRING product is are made in America to the highest quality standards. Find out more about the company at: www.bluespringwellness.com.
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 the unique blend of highest quality ingredients.
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 ascorbic acid) promotes above average bone mass and decreased fracture rates. Vitamin C supresses a type of bone destroying cell called osteoclasts while stimulating the production of bone building cells called osteoblasts. Most osteoporosis drugs only supress 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.
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 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) supresses 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 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.
In Ancient Greece the term Phosphorus was used as the name for the planet Venus and translates to mean 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 part of Epsom salts was first discovered in 1618. The metal alone was first produced in 1808.
Magnesium helps with 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 in many foods is lost during processing or cooking. These factors have contributed to decreasing levels of magnesium in most diets.
Documented use of zinc and zinc alloys have dated as far back as 500 BC. However, the importance of zinc in nutrition was not realized until sometime around 1940.
Zinc levels in bone 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 from smoking and displaces zinc in 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 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. Thus copper is used 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 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 its ease of absorption.
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. Potassium 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.
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.
In addition to calcium, calcium fructoborate also contains a form of boron. Due to chemical fertilizers, the presence of naturally occurring boron is diminishing in soil and foods. This decrease 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 (also known as Equisetum arvense) has been used as an herbal remedy for thousands of years and 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.
