Ultra Bone: Extra Protection
Improve your bone health.
Research is increasingly showing that nutrition affects bone health. Used properly, it can help build bone. However, when unattended, certain elements may lead to, or accelerate, a loss of bone mass, including:
- Excess sodium, which pulls large amounts of calcium into the kidneys that is subsequently excreted through the urinary tract.
- Protein, which in excess of 60 grams per day, promotes the loss of calcium and other vital minerals through the urine.
- Caffeine-containing drinks, which have been found to trigger the loss of calcium through the kidneys and intestines. Research indicates that a lifetime consumption of two or more cups of caffeinated coffee or soda per day is linked to a reduction in bone density. The more of these beverages one ingests, the greater the loss.
- Alcohol, as heavy drinkers appear to be at higher risk of osteoporosis and bone fracture, as they are also more susceptible to falls and alcohol-related accidents.
- Tobacco, as heavy smokers typically have been shown to have less bone density than non-smokers.
With bone loss, the risk of osteoporosis increases. As of 2016, the National Osteoporosis Foundation reports that, “about 54 million Americans have osteoporosis and low bone mass. Studies suggest that about one in two women and up to one in four men at age 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.”
Pure Essentials Ultra Bone: Extra Protection is an exclusive nutritional formula that provides 14 uniquely balanced, energized, and alkalinizing bone builders. Additionally, its formulation offers a complete, fully active, comprehensive mineral supplement.
• Calcium, which is one of the most clinically-studied nutrients for bone health. Pure Essentials Bone Protection provides four distinct, fully soluble, completely ionized forms of calcium for maximum benefit.
• Magnesium, which aids in calcium absorption and, when deficient, is a major factor in calcium and bone loss, and may contribute to brittle bones. Pure Essentials Bone Protection contains four fully soluble, completely ionized forms of magnesium for optimal action.
• Boron, which plays an important role in calcium and magnesium metabolism. It also works with vitamin D-3 to synergistically boost the body’s uptake of calcium.
• Zinc, which promotes bone mass by influencing hormonal action.
• Selenomethionine, chromium citrate, and vanadium ascorbate for greater mineral replacement.
