AOR’s Ortho Bone™ contains not just calcium, but all the key ingredients at the appropriate doses in the most effective forms to keep bones in optimal condition and to reduce bone loss. This is why 10 capsules a day provides your daily dose of calcium. The MCHC calcium source used in Ortho Bone™ also contains growth factors and proteins, which is why it actually stimulates bone development rather than just reducing calcium loss.
Ortho Bone™ is an advanced bone health formula providing nutrients that are fundamental for mineral deposition in bone and for regulating the excretion of minerals. These nutrients are very important for those with osteoporosis, osteopenia or a history of bone fractures. Ortho Bone™ is unique because it serves not only to reduce bone loss but to maintain or even increase bone growth, something that most calcium supplements are unable to achieve. This is due to the key ingredient, a superior source of calcium called microcrystalline hydroxyapatite complex (MCHC), which comes from New Zealand bovine bone. MCHC contains more than calcium: it contains all of the minerals and proteins found in bone, is rich in phosphorus, and provides growth factors that stimulate bone growth. It is digested more slowly in the stomach than typical calcium supplements, resulting in smaller spikes in blood calcium levels, which allows the calcium to be better absorbed into the bones.
