We are pleased to announce that our newly-formulated Hardy Nutritionals® Bone Health Essentials supplement is now available.
Bone Health Essentials contains key minerals and vitamins our bodies need to restore and maintain healthy bones and connective tissues (including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, boron, silicon, vitamin D, vitamin K, and vitamin C).,, *
It is designed to be taken together with Hardy Nutritionals® Daily Essential Nutrients or Optimal Balance™ to ensure delivery of all essential nutrients for general health and complete bone health (including zinc, copper, and manganese, among others).*
Taking Balanced Free-form Aminos in addition to Bone Health Essentials is important for people whose goal is to restore bone health. During healing, bones synthesize new proteins which can be made only from an adequate supply of amino acids. The balance of amino acids in Balanced Free-form Aminos, based on the natural amino acid profile of human milk, is formulated to be optimal for human needs.*
In our proprietary Bone Health Essentials blend, we've included bamboo stem extract as a concentrated food source of silicon. It's interesting that while consuming almost exclusively bamboo leaves and stems, giant panda bears develop a large, healthy skeleton. Bamboo leaves and stems also contain many other nutrients essential for bone health, such as amino acids, calcium, magnesium, zinc and copper.
Optimal bone health requires significant levels of many minerals. Our proprietary NutraTek™-enhanced mineral delivery technology combines each mineral with organic molecules - just like nature - to optimize absorption and distribution to body cells. This enables each mineral to be much more useful to the body than the common rock-form minerals used in most supplements.*
In addition to vitamin D, we've included two natural forms of vitamin K (phylloquinone and menaquinone-7) to enhance bone strength and prevent fractures.
By popular demand, Bone Health Essentials is contained in vegetarian capsules and comes lactose- and gluten-free.
