Life Extension Bone Restore Will Help Combat The Loss of Bone Density and Osteoporosis
Throughout your life, cells referred to as osteoblasts build bone material and then fill it with calcium. During this time, osteoclasts work just as rigorously to tear down and reabsorb bone. This delicate balance is controlled by many factors, including systemic hormones and cytokines. Bone mass reaches its apex by the middle of your 20's and plateaus for about ten years. During this time bone turnover is constant, with bone formation approximately equaling bone resorption.
As your body ages, this delicate balance is lost. Your hormone levels shift, more drastically in women than in men. During this process osteoclasts gain the upper hand and your bone mass begins to decline. Most women have already begun to loss bone by the time they reach menopause, but the rate of loss can increase up to 10 times during the first five years after menopause.
Loss of bone density is not just caused by a calcium deficiency, but also with an insufficient intake of a host of other nutrients including magnesium and vitamin D3. In order for calcium to be effective in maintaining healthy bones, sufficient amounts of vitamin D3, zinc, magnesium, manganese, and other nutrients must also be present so that calcium and phosphorus can be incorporated into the bone matrix. Also, many forms of calcium are not particularly well absorbed by your body.
Calcium is the most prevalent mineral in your body, it is mostly found in your bones and teeth. During the formation of your bones, calcium forms crystals which strengthen your maturing bones.
While loss of bone mineral density is mostly associated with women, aging men can also have this problem. Both men and women may experience substantial deficits of magnesium if they do not take a supplement. Life Extension Bone Restore now contains magnesium citrate, which is one of the most highly absorbed forms of magnesium. Magnesium is needed to maintain strong bones, but is also critical to maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. Actually, magnesium is critical for facilitating hundreds of enzymatic reactions that our bodies require to maintain optimal health.
To overcome the problem that prevent aging adults from absorbing enough calcium, Life Extension offers a proprietary comprehensive mineral formula called Bone Restore which has been designed to support healthy bone density and strength. Bone Restore provides 1200 milligrams of elemental calcium from three different forms, along with the critically important nutrients magnesium, boron, zinc, silicon, manganese and vitamin D3 needed for healthy bones.
In fact, the boron in this formula, called FruiteX B® OsteoBoron®, is a boron/carbohydrate complex, similar to what is found in fruits and vegetables and is more bioavailable than boron citrate. Scientific research has established the beneficial effects of boron on the strength of bones and joints.
One reason why aging individuals deal with bone mineral density loss even though they are taking calcium supplements is due to their body's inability to absorb enough elemental calcium. Life Extension Bone Restore contains calcium in capsule form to ensure that it breaks down fully in the digestive tract.
Calcium supplements are best taken with meals. They should always be taken with a full glass of water, juice, or other liquid to enhance solubility. Unfortunately, calcium should not be taken with fiber due to fiber's interference with its absorption. If calcium-containing formulas are taken only once daily, they may be best taken in the evening.
