AOR - Bone Basics - 360 Capsule(s) - NPN: 80085880 -- Bone Basics is more than just a calcium supplement, it is a complete bone-building formulation that includes nutrients fundamental for maintaining mineral balance in the bone matrix and for supporting healthy joints. Bone Basics is unique because it serves not only to reduce bone loss but to maintain or even increase bone growth.The key ingredient is microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) complex, an extract of free-range New Zealand bovine bone (free from antibiotics and growth hormones) and a superior source of calcium and phosphorus. MCHA provides proteins, growth factors, and mucopolysaccharides that work together to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss. Additional nutrients include: vitamin C, vitamin D3, vitamin K2, boron, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and copper. These co-factors enhance the absorption and usage of calcium and support collagen production, which builds the framework for bone.AOR AdvantageAORs Bone Basics provides the ideal source of MCHA which is pasture-fed, free-range livestock not subjected to routine antibiotics or recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH). This source not only ensures that the widest possible range of micronutrients survive the manufacturing process, but also provides assurances against bovine spongiform encephalopathy, commonly referred to as mad cow disease. AOR sources its MCHA from New Zealand free-range beef, where local legislation and/or custom restricts routine antibiotics and recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH). MCHA is a superior source of calcium and phosphorus.
