Build Better Bone Density in 12 Months
Virtually everyone knows that bones need calcium. The FDA has
determined that adequate calcium intake throughout life, as part of a
well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. But not all sources of
calcium are the same!
Do you want to maintain your bone density — or increase
After the age of 35, both men and women lose bone at a rate
of about 1-2% per year. In the 5-7 years around menopause, bone loss accelerates
to a rate of about 5% per year.1
The good news is that bone loss is not inevitable with age. It’s simply due to a
lack of calcium in the diet.
A very interesting study found that while women who followed their regular diets
(providing 683 mg of calcium/day) lost 3% of their bone density over a two-year
period, healthy post-menopausal women who added four glasses of milk a day to
their diets (providing 1028 mg of calcium per/day had minimal bone loss.2
But you can do better than that.
ESC® (Eggshell Calcium) — the form of calcium featured in BONEhealth — does more
than just maintain the current status of your bones. It actually increases your
BONEhealth is superior to other calcium
products because it:
- Is easier for your body to absorb. ESC®
is a 100% natural, highly concentrated source of calcium plus naturally
occurring transporter proteins that enhance calcium absorption.3
In vitro studies demonstrate an almost 20% increase in
calcium bioavailability with ESC® compared to calcium carbonate.
- Doesn’t just maintain bone density —
increases bone density.* A recent double-blind, placebo-controlled human
clinical trial in post-menopausal women found that eggshell calcium
significantly increased bone mineral density of the hip
within 12 months.*4
- Includes the two nutrients calcium must have
— magnesium and vitamin D — in order to be utilized.
- Is easy to digest. BONEhealth will not
cause the digestive discomfort, bloating and constipation typical of other
- Is an environmentally friendly product.
Most calcium products are mined from the earth. However, ESC® is made from a
completely renewable resource: eggshells!
- Does not contain
unsafe levels of heavy metals that can plague other calcium products.
It’s time to make the switch to a better
calcium. Switch to BONEhealth today!
