Membrell LLC, maker of eggshell and eggshell membrane-derived products JOINThealth Original, JOINThealth Plus Antioxidants, and BONEhealth Original, would like to introduce its new bone health supplement, BONEhealth Plus Vitamin D3 & K2.
Well-known nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and vitamin D are key building blocks for strong bones. Recent research, however, has revealed additional nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K and zinc are also important for optimal bone health. That is the basis for NEW BONEhealth Plus Vitamin D3 & K2. Like BONEhealth Original, BONEhealth Plus blends all natural, ultra-pure calcium from eggshells, as ESC®, with vitamin D3 and magnesium to ensure maximum utilization of the calcium. However, BONEhealth Plus goes a step further by including 33 percent more Vitamin D3 along with Vitamin C, Vitamin K2, and zinc for even greater bone support in healthy individuals.
BONEhealth Plus features ESC, which is more absorbable than other forms of calcium as a result of naturally occurring transport proteins in the eggshell. ESC supplies naturally occurring trace minerals as well, such as strontium, zinc, phosphorus and boron. ESC is ultra-pure; it is nearly 50 times below the California Proposition 65 limit for heavy metals. BONEhealth Plus also utilizes the most effective form of vitamin D, cholecalciferol or vitamin D3, which is essential for absorption of calcium in the gut. Magnesium is a critical enzyme cofactor in the conversion of vitamin D3 to calcitriol, the active form of vitamin D in the body. BONEhealth Plus is formulated with a 2:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium to maximize calcium utilization in the body. The addition of vitamin K2, or Menaquinone-7, the most bioactive form of vitamin K, will help to maintain bone mineralization in healthy individuals. Vitamin C and zinc are also beneficial to help maintain bone’s structural matrix in healthy individuals.
Kevin J. Ruff, Ph.D., MBA, CCRP, director of scientific and regulatory affairs, comments on the product, “We are pleased to offer this advanced formula of our flagship BONEhealth product. The additional vitamins and minerals in our new formula were chosen based upon the latest research in the area of bone support and should nicely meet the needs of customers who are looking for more than the average bone health product.”
