|Zinc (Bioactive™ proteinate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae): Copper (HVP* chelate), Manganese (Bioactive proteinate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae) These minerals are essential co-factors which help enzymes work properly – including the manufacture of bone tissue. Deficiencies in these nutrients have profound effects on overall bone mass density. Intervention studies show these nutrients to be more beneficial in bone loss versus Calcium alone.||10mg1mg3mg|
|L-Lysine: L-Lysine is an amino acid that has been shown to promote osteoblasts, improve Calcium absorption from the GI tract, and prevent Calcium loss from the kidneys. Due to its ability to increase bone mass, it is a recommended supplement for adults with osteoporosis.||400mg|
|Selenium (Bioactive proteinate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae) One of the most important antioxidant minerals – particularly with research linking high levels of oxidative stress in today’s environment to compromised bone health. In a large study (over 1200 subjects), those with the highest Selenium intake were 73% less likely to suffer a hip fracture versus those with the lowest intake.||100mcg|
|Lycopersicon esculentum fruit extract supplying 7mg of Lycopene: In studies conducted at the University of Toronto, Lycopene has been shown to stimulate bone formation by osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) and has an inhibitory effect on the cells which break down bone mass (osteoclasts). Following these studies, researchers from Australia also showed higher dietary Lycopene intake with the prevention of bone loss in adults.|
