Bone-Up provides StimCal ossein MicroCrystalline HydroxyApatite (MCHA) Complex (from free-range New Zealand calves), which includes the superior combination of the inorganic calcium lattice of MCHA within and organic protein milieu. StimCal is rich in native type I collagen - the predominant protein found in bone - has been clinically demonstrated not to disproportionately spike calcium blood levels as do other forms of calcium such as the carbonate and citrate salt forms. StimuCal is combined with vitamin D³ and vitamin K² (as MK-7 from natural fermentation [a more bioavailable form of vitamin K]) to support the proper deposition of calcium into the bone matrix, thereby maintaining skeletal integrity, as well as supporting cardiovascular and arterial health. Potassium citrate is a systemic alkalizer for optimal osteo support.
Health Claim: Adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
