Advanced osteo formula to support healthy bones*
- Promotes healthy, strong bones
- A comprehensive vegan-friendly bone formula
- Provides effective forms of key bone-health nutrients
Ortho Bone™ Vegan is an advanced bone health formula which provides nutrients that are fundamental for keeping bones strong. Ortho Bone™ Vegan differs from AOR’s original Ortho Bone™ in that it is suitable for vegans, providing the most effective non-animal-based sources of calcium, vitamin D, and other bone-building nutrients.
Ortho Bone™ Vegan provides all of the vitamins and minerals known to benefit bone health, helping to reduce calcium loss and maintain bone mineral density. Calcium is the most abundant mineral found in bone, and calcium citrate-malate is the most absorbable vegan form of calcium. The special structure of calcium citrate-malate makes it six to nine times more easily dissolved in the stomach than plain calcium citrate and is absorbed 36% better; and calcium citrate is absorbed about 22% better than calcium carbonate. These statistics illustrate the superiority of calcium citrate-malate over both the citrate and carbonate forms.
While calcium is important, it is only part of the picture, and many other nutrients are needed to maintain strong, healthy bones. Ortho Bone™ Vegan also provides vitamins D and K for proper absorption and usage of calcium, vitamin C and silicon to support collagen production, magnesium which makes up a large part of the bone mineral matrix, boron to reduce magnesium loss, and trace minerals manganese, zinc and copper which are co-factors for enzymes involved in bone growth and repair. Lastly, vitamins B12 and folate are included to help reduce homocysteine, a metabolic by-product that is toxic to bone fibers.
AOR’s Ortho Bone™ Vegan is an advanced combination of important ingredients to support bone health. All key bone health nutrients are included in the formula in their most effective forms and in clinically-backed doses. Ortho Bone™ Vegan is an ideal formula for vegetarians and vegans.
DISCUSSION: Ortho Bone™ Vegan is an advanced combination of nutrients including a superior vegan calcium to support healthy bone structure. The formula features calcium citrate-malate, which is a more bioavailable calcium than simple calcium citrate. It also includes two research supported forms of vitamin K2, vegan vitamin D3 and all other key nutrients in research-backed doses and forms.*
