A complete formula with Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin K2 plus oligomineral essential for the health of bones.
Essential calcium and magnesium minerals are manufactured by Albion Minerals in the US, the world leader in the production of chelated minerals with high bio-availability.
Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by loss of bone density. This loss makes bones brittle and can easily fracture especially legs, hips and arms. One in four women and one in eight men suffer from osteoporosis to some degree. Untreated, osteoporosis progresses to complete incapacitation of the patient. Women approaching or during menopause have the highest risk of developing loss of bone density. In a period of 5-7 years after the establishment of menopause a woman can lose up to 20% of bone mass.
What is Osteopen ™?

What is different from other formulations?
Osteopen contains two essential elements, according to the latest scientific studies on osteoporosis and calcium metabolism. Vitamin K2 and Boron.
Boron is a trace element recently discovered as having an important role in the metabolism of nutrients necessary for maintaining a healthy skeletal system, also playing an important role in regulating hormonal balance. Dubbed by nutritionists „Calcium Aid “ Boron plays a vital role for bones because it assist in calcium absorption and utilization in the body. More broadly, Boron assists in the metabolism of four essential nutrients important for bone health: Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc and Vitamin D. In other words, it is essential to associate boron when taking Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc + Vitamin D.
Osteocalcin is a vitamin K2 dependent protein. This means that in order to function properly it needs vitamin K2. Deficiency of vitamin K2 leads to calcium loss and loss of bone quality. Vitamin K2 is essential for the absorption and metabolism of calcium and for its deposition in bones and teeth; Also, Vitamin K2 prevents calcium deposition in arteries, joints, or internal organs. Vitamin K2 is useful both in preventing and treating osteoporosis (in association with calcium supplementation).
Recent research indicates the importance of supplementing with silica (a silicon source), manganese and phosphorus to improve bone matrix and bone mineralization.
Osteopen can be considered as the most up to date and most effective formulation for Osteoporosis / Osteopenia.
