OsteoMineralBoost is a mineral supplement which combines calcium (MCHA), magnesium, and trace minerals (Aquamin seaweed), plus betaine HCL for improved digestion/absorption. OsteoMineralBoost supplies an extra dose of magnesium at a ratio of 10:6, calcium:magnesium. Magnesium (as well as trace minerals) are often found deficient in the general population especially in the elderly due to reduced dietary intake and reduced intestinal absorption.

OsteoMineralBoost™ is a mineral supplement which combines calcium (MCHA), magnesium, and trace minerals (Aquamin seaweed), plus betaine HCL for improved digestion/absorption.
OsteoMineralBoost is recommended for individuals who feel they may need extra mineral support due to the severity of their bone loss (osteopenia or osteoporosis).
One of the things that is often overlooked in osteoporosis is the need for trace minerals. OsteoMineralBoost not only supplies calcium and magnesium in a perfect 10:6 ratio but also extremely important trace minerals. Decades of aggressive modern farming techniques in America have depleted nutrients in our soils and vegetables and fruits no longer contain the trace minerals necessary to rely strictly on diet alone as a sole source of many nutrients, especially trace minerals. For this reason, OsteoMineralBoost also contains Lithothamnion coralliodes, an excellent source of trace minerals. This mineral-rich seaweed is harvested from the sea-bed in waters off the coasts of Ireland and Iceland. Red marine algae ultimineral extract is rich in calcium, magnesium, and 74 other trace minerals and is highly bioavailable. Trace minerals act as cofactors for enzymatic formation of amino acids, proteins, hormones, and neurotransmitters, and they keep our nervous system, with its trillions of electrical impulses a day, working flawlessly. Trace minerals also act as essential cofactors in bone metabolism.
Non-GMO and Gluten Free
This “bone-boosting” formula includes MCHA (microcrystalline HA) derived from whole bovine bone from Australia (certified free from BSE). MCHA not only provides calcium and phosphorus in their natural ratios but also includes the organic portion of bone including important biologically active growth factors. These growth factors can stimulate the cells found within bone and enhance bone formation.
Trace minerals in MCHA (including magnesium, fluoride, zinc, silicon, manganese, and others) act as important cofactors for enzymes involved bone matrix production.
Aquamin seaweed (red marine algae and another trace mineral), has been shown to improve bone structure/function in female mice.* Trace minerals act as essential cofactors in bone metabolism.
OsteoMineralBoost supplies an extra dose of magnesium at a ratio of 10:6, calcium:magnesium. Magnesium (as well as trace minerals) are often found deficient in the general population especially in the elderly due to reduced dietary intake and reduced intestinal absorption. Not only are there well over 300 magnesium-dependent enzymatic functions necessary for normal body function but low magnesium levels profoundly affect the immune system and mechanisms of inflammation. Magnesium deficiencies lead to elevations in the pro-inflammatory cytokines, Il-1, Il-6, and to the activation of NF-kB, the special protein found within every cell that is the final spark to inflammation.

Bone health related benefits linked to ingredients found in OsteoMineralBoost:
Microcrystaline HA (MCHA)
– A naturally occurring source of bioavailable calcium as well as collagen and approximately 40 other minerals, amino acids, and intact bio-active growth factors.
– Our MCHA is derived from whole bovine bone from Australia (certified free from BSE).
– MCHA has been shown to prevent bone loss in postmenopausal women. (Castelo-Branco, 1999)
– In a meta-analysis of 6 controlled trials it was determined that MCHA was significantly more effective in preventing bone loss than calcium carbonate. (Castelo-Branco, 2009)
– Essential for bone matrix synthesis, magnesium is also an essential cofactor for over 300 important enzyme reactions.
Aquamin seaweed (red algae)
– Mineral-rich extract from Lithothamnion calcareum shown to improve bone strength/function in female mice. (Aslam, 2010)
– For improved digestion and absorption
