HOW DO I USE THIS?
- Take 1 tablet in the morning and one tablet in the late afternoon or evening.
- Osteovex must be taken with food and 300ml of water due to the active ingredients requiring stomach acid production which only occurs when eating or drinking.
- Alternatively – take as prescribed by your healthcare professional.
WHAT IS OSTEOARTHRITIS?
- Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. Sometimes referred to as degenerative joint disease.
- With OA cartilage within a joint begins to break down and the underlying bone begins to change.
- OA causes pain, stiffness, swelling and decreased flexibility.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE SIDE-EFFECTS?
- Osteovex has no reported side effects. The ingredients contained in Osteovex are commonly found in foods. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients contained in Osteovex. Do not exceed the recommended dosage – do not take a double dose if you have skipped a dose.
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS?
Ingredients: Per tablet.
MENA-Q7 – Vitamin K2 as Menaquinine – 0.045mg
- The strong association between Vitamin K2 deficiency and impaired bone health was proven in both laboratory and clinical studies. It has been found that vitamin K deficiency results in a decreased level of active Osteocalcin, which in turn increases the risk for fragile bones.
- Research also showed that Vitamin K2 combined with calcium and vitamin D can decrease bone turnover. Further, a significant study clearly demonstrated that Vitamin K2 is essential for maintaining bone strength in postmenopausal women, and also improved bone mineral content and femoral neck width.
CALCIUM CARBONATE 600mg
- Calcium is the healthy bone mineral. About 99 percent of the calcium in the body is stored in the bones and teeth. It is the mineral that makes them hard and strong.
- VERY IMPORTANT: All forms of calcium are not the same! Calcium carbonate provides 40 percent elemental calcium; the other 60 percent is the carbonate ingredient. Therefore, 600 milligrams (mg) of calcium carbonate provides 240 mg elemental calcium. Calcium citrate is 20 percent elemental calcium; 600 mg of calcium citrate provides 120 mg elemental calcium.
- The most common calcium used in Calcium supplements is calcium citrate. Be very careful when purchasing calcium products that do not display the calcium form on the carton or package insert a product may contain a large amount of calcium but the key
is to know what the elemental value is.
MAGNESIUM (BISGLYCINATE) – 175mg
- Magnesium and calcium work together closely to maintain strong bones. Magnesium deficiency contributes to osteoporosis directly by acting on crystal formation and on bone cells and indirectly by impacting on the secretion and the activity of parathyroid hormone and by promoting low grade inflammation.
- Why Magnesium Bisglycinate? Magnesium Bisgycinate is a preferred from of Magnesium because it is well tolerated and absorbed in the body.Magnesium is combined with an amino acid known as glycine. Glycine works alongside many neurotransmitters (chemicals in your brain), like GABA, to promote feelings of calm. Glycine may also improve sleep quality and promote a healthy circadian rhythm.
VITAMIN D3 – 500iu
- Known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to skin being exposed to sunlight.
- Vitamin D is essential for absorption of Calcium. Calcium is absorbed from the bowel by an active vitamin D-dependent transport mechanism and by passive diffusion. The active transport mechanism plays an important role in calcium homeostasis, as calcium absorbed is inversely related to dietary intake.
- Vitamin D3’s bioavailability depends on magnesium. The enzymes (in the liver and kidneys) that enable vitamin D metabolism’s converting it into its active form, calcitriol work without sufficient amounts of magnesium to draw upon.
ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C) – 25mg
- Vitamin C is widely known as a powerful antioxidant as well as an effective cell protector and immunity booster. But supplements of Vitamin C have recently been recognized as having an important role in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis because of its ability to increase bone density.
ZINC GLUCONATE – 8.4mg
- Zinc stimulates bone growth by activating enzymes. An enzyme is a protein that triggers chemical reactions in your body. So enzymes help regulate biological processes, like bone-building.
- One of the key enzymes that requires zinc is called alkaline phosphatase (ALP). And there’s a bone-specific version of ALP found on the surface of osteoblasts, the specialized cells that build bone. Bone-specific ALP plays a role in bone mineralization and is often used as a marker of bone formation.
MANGANESE 10% – 10mg
- Manganese is distributed in tissues throughout the body, including bone; manganese activates phosphatases, kinases, decarboxylases and glycosyltransferases, also is a constituent of some enzymes .
- In recent studies research has uncovered the special role manganese plays as a co-factor in the formation of bone cartilage and bone collagen, as well as in bone mineralization
WHAT DOES IT DO? HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Osteovex was developed to assist in the treatment of Osteoporosis/Brittle Bones and acts as a prophylactic are preventative treatment for early onset osteoporosis by combining a blend of well documented ingredients which have shown to:
– Promote Bone Density
– Maintain healthy bone function
– Reduce lower grade inflammation
– Reduce the risk of hairline fractures caused by minor injuries.
– Worldwide, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, resulting in an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds.
– Osteoporosis is estimated to affect 200 million women worldwide – approximately one-tenth of women aged 60, one-fifth of women aged 70, two-fifths of women aged 80 and two-thirds of women aged 90.
– Worldwide, 1 in 3 women over age 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures, as will 1 in 5 men aged over 50.
WHAT IS OSTEOPOROSIS?
- Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle, so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses such as bending over or coughing can cause a fracture. Osteoporosis-related fractures most commonly occur in the hip, wrist or spine.
- Bone is living tissue that is constantly being broken down and replaced. Osteoporosis occurs when the creation of new bone doesn’t keep up with the loss of old bone.
- Osteoporosis affects men and women of all races. But white and Asian women especially older women who are past menopause are at highest risk. Medications, healthy diet and weight-bearing exercise can help prevent bone loss or strengthen already weak bones.SymptomsThere typically are no symptoms in the early stages of bone loss. But once your bones have been weakened by osteoporosis, you might have signs and symptoms that include:Back pain, caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra
Loss of height over time
A stooped posture
A bone that breaks much more easily than expected
WHO SHOULD TAKE OSTEOVEX?
- Who should take Osteovex?Osteoporosis is common amongst the elderly, but studies show that early onset osteoporosis can occur as early as at 40 years of age. Men and women of younger age can be susceptible to osteoporosis due to a deficiency in certain elements such as Calcium, Vitamin D, Magnesium, Zinc, Manganese and Vitamin K2.Men and Women who do not consume calcium during their normal diet are at higher risk of osteoporosis as well as older individuals who endogenously produce less Vitamin D.MENOPAUSE & OSTEOPOROSISNOTE: Women who are in menopause, peri-menopause or have already been through menopause are highly susceptible to brittle bones and/or osteoporosis due to the lack of estrogen production. All women above the age of 45 should take a bone health supplement such as Osteovex to increase bone density. 80% of people across the globe who have osteoporosis are women.
