Did you know that our bones are active, live tissue? They are constantly breaking down and rebuilding (called bone remodeling) throughout our life. This helps our bones adapt to new stresses like an increase in weight and to repair any microdamage. Plus, bones can become weak due to certain medications, poor digestive health, and especially if a diet has been high in sugar, soda or processed carbohydrates.
To truly support bone rebuilding it takes more than just a calcium supplement to keep our bones healthy and strong. That’s where ourKey Osteo Plus comes in, specially formulated to contain essential, highly absorbable minerals (A very important detail when it comes to bone health!) in addition to a broad spectrum of high quality vitamins. Think of it as two products in one, a bone-building formula plus a multivitamin.
As a huge bonus, Key Osteo Plus is 15% off all October long! Try it out for yourself and give your bones the boost they deserve. In this short video Melanie, a dietitian at our parent company Nutritional Weight & Wellness, explains how Key Osteo Plus works, along with what foods give bones an additional boost of support.
Each box of Key Osteo Plus comes with thirty AM packets and thirty PM packets.
Each AM packet contains strontium, a mineral similar to calcium that works with the other nutrients to stimulate new bone growth and limit bone loss by boosting skeletal strength. It helps to bring the natural bone remodeling process back into balance.
Later in the day, the PM packet steps in with two of the most absorbable forms of calcium, microcrystalline calcium hydroxyapatite (MCHC) that provides comprehensive bone nourishment, and DiCalcium Malate, a chelated form of calcium that is well absorbed.
Both packets also contain 500 IUs of Vitamin D3, for 1,000 IUs total. Vitamin D is critical for proper calcium absorption into the bones. For people who live in northern latitudes we suggest taking additional vitamin D for their bones and overall health. In addition, both packets contain vitamin K2 that acts almost as a guide for calcium once it enters the body, helping to utilize it to the utmost and guide it into bones.
Side note: Beware that not all calcium supplements are created equal. In fact, most over-the-counter calcium supplements are made of calcium carbonate, which is cheap and not well-absorbed at all. You get what you pay for; so even if Key Osteo Plus isn’t for you, please keep this in mind when shopping for your own calcium product.
Who Should Take Key Osteo Plus?
For those with thinning or weak bones Key Osteo Plus will help support bones along with a healthy, real food eating plan. If you have weak or thinning bones, we suggest taking both the AM and PM packet every day.
Key Osteo Plus is a wonderful supplement to maintain healthy bones by alternating days taking the AM or PM packets.
