how does each active ingredient function in Ultra Bone-Up?
Ultra Bone-Up provides StimuCal™ ossein MicroCrystalline HydroxyApatite (MCHA) (from free-range New Zealand calves), which includes the superior combination of the inorganic calcium lattice of MCHA within an organic protein milieu.
StimuCal™ is rich in native type I collagen—the predominant protein found in bone—and has been clinically demonstrated not to disproportionately spike calcium blood levels as do other forms of calcium, such as the citrate and carbonate salt forms.
StimuCal™ is combined with vitamin D3, vitamin K2 (as MK-7 from natural fermentation [a more bioavailable form of vitamin K]) and JarroSil® Activated Silicon® to support the deposition of calcium into the bones, as well as to assist in building up the organic bone matrix.
Also included for optimal osteo support, are potassium citrate (systemic alkalizer) and MBP® (Milk Basic Protein) (activates osteoblasts and decreases osteoclast activity).
Bone Up® also supports cardiovascular and arterial health.
Adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Ultra Bone-Up is a comprehensive nutritional regimen for healthy bones and joints. It starts with calcium from bovine bone, using the finest source available: chemical-free, range-grazed, young New Zealand or Australian cattle. The source is ossein hydroxyapatite complex (OHC), the protein-containing calcium complex found in human bone, which has not been ashed so as to retain its special organic matrix. OHC has been shown to increase bone mass in humans.
OHC produces a more prolonged calcium balance than do soluble calcium salts. It provides both organic and inorganic bone constituents: calcium and phosphorous and trace amounts of zinc, strontium, silicon and iron, plus amino acids and aminoglycans.
Bone-building is enhanced by the presence of an organic matrix and a microcrystalline structure from which minerals can be released
Ultra Bone-Up also includes vitamins C (as calcium ascorbate), magnesium, D3, K2, curcumin and Resveratrol. Inadequate levels of vitamin C and magnesium can promote over-calcifi cation and breakdown of bone structure. Vitamin C helps form collagen, the connective tissue for strong and fl exible, not brittle, bones. Vitamin D is critical for calcium absorption. Vitamin K produces osteocalcin, a protein matrix upon which calcium crystallizes. Resveratrol is known to promote bone formation by stimulating osteoblast activity and proliferation while reducing bone turnover. Other major bone health nutrients included are zinc, manganese, copper, vitamin B1, vitamin B12 and boron.
Japanese secret for bone health
Women in Japan have lower rates of hip fracture than women in the West despite consuming far less calcium. Their secret is natto, from fermented soybeans, which is associated with signifi cantly higher bone mineral density and fewer osteoporotic fractures.
Natto is a source of menaquinone-7 (MK-7), a special form of vitamin K2. A clinical study found that markers for hip fracture risk were decreased much more by K2 than by K1. The data suggest that K2, but not K1, decreases bone turnover (a strong risk factor for accelerated bone loss).
Preventing bone turnover
Osteoclasts break down bone tissue, while osteoblasts build bone. Though all tissues must be replaced regularly, excessive breakdown leads to bone thinning; this process increases with age. A variety of factors, including immune activity, tip the scales toward destruction. Infl ammatory cytokines play a major role in bone breakdown. Ultra Bone-Up employs an array of phytonutrients to retard bone loss and upregulate bone building in addition to the minerals needed to construct bone and the vitamins needed to absorb calcium and hydroxylate and carboxylate proteins.
More than just calcium
Several key minerals are offered in Ultra Bone-Up.
Magnesium, a mineral deficient in most diets, helps keep calcium out of soft tissues (as does vitamin K2).
Bone contains zinc and manganese, which help maintain the activity of joint tissue cells and osteoblasts.
Copper is needed for bone development and healthy joints. The enzyme responsible for cross-linking collagen requires copper, which has been shown to substantially reduce bone loss in women.
Boron plays a role in estrogen maintenance, and has been shown to reduce the urinary loses of calcium and magnesium.

The Ultimate Bone Formulation: Ultra Bone-Up® with StimuCal™
Ultra Bone-Up® provides StimuCal™ Ossein MicroCrystalline HydroxyApatite (MCHA) (from free-range New Zealand calves), which includes the superior combination of the inorganic calcium lattice of MCHA within an organic protein milieu.
StimuCal™ is a concentrated source of naturally occurring calcium that is rich in native type I collagen -- the predominant protein found in bone.
StimuCal promotes bone strengthening and is a bone stimulation protein. As opposed to other forms of calcium, such as citrate and carbonate salt forms, StimuCal™ has been clinically demonstrated to not spike calcium blood levels disproportionately.
Combining StimuCal™, vitamin D3, natural MK-7 (vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7) with JarroSil® Activated Silicon® makes Ultra Bone-Up® the ultimate bone formulation that helps build and maintain stronger bones while supporting cardiovascular health.

Can zinc deficiency cause depression?
The health benefits of zinc include a proper functioning of the immune and digestive systems, controlled diabetes, reduction in stress levels, improved metabolism, and an increased rate of healing for acne and wounds. Also, it is helpful in terms of pregnancy, hair care, eczema, weight loss, night blindness, cold, eye care, appetite loss, and many other conditions.
What is the importance of zinc?
Zinc plays a vital role in protein synthesis and helps regulate the cell production in the immune system of the human body. It is mostly found in the strongest muscles of the body and is found in especially high concentrations in the white and red blood cells, retina, skin, liver, kidneys, bones, and pancreas. The semen and the prostate gland in men also contain significant amounts of zinc.
In the human body, there are more than 300 different enzymes that require zinc to function normally. Researchers believe that 3,000 proteins (out of approximately 100,000) have this vital mineral.
A normal person has two to three grams of zinc at any given time. There are organs in the human body which secrete it, such as the salivary gland, the prostate gland, and the pancreas. Even cells involved in the activity of the immune system secrete zinc. It is used up in various metabolic processes and eliminated through normal excretory and urinary channels, so it needs to be replenished often. If it isn’t, you will begin to suffer from deficiency symptoms.
A multivitamin a day keeps the doctor awayWith so many supplements available, and a lot of supplement advertisements in sports magazines targeted at athletes, one is rarely seen: ads for a multivitamin and mineral.
When you think about supplements, what are the first thoughts that go through your mind? Whey protein, nitric oxide, creatine, fat burners, or maybe something else? These are the ones that consume the ads.
What if I told you though that the most important supplement that you must have in your arsenal is not on this list? That is your basic multivitamin. From the chewable ones you took as a kid to the ones you have now. Oh, you don't take them? If not, you better change that immediately if you want to meet your fitness goals.
For the human body to complete all the tasks it has in a normal day, it must be given a wide and complex variety of vital nutrients. Becoming deficient in any one of these essential vitamins or minerals causes breakdown of the metabolic pathway that produces optimum efficiency and performance goes down quick. Obviously, this is NOT what you want!
Silicon supplement rejuvenates skin, hair and nailsIt's not only gelatine and biotin that make your nails stronger. Studies show that silicon compounds do so too. Belgian researchers demonstrated the effect of orthosilicic acid in an experiment in which they gave women with an aging skin a mere 10 mg silicon daily.
Avoid this, or your bones will get weaker!It is often said vegetarianism is a healthy choice when you want to live a long life. But what about bone mineral density?
Apparently, scientists wondered the same thing, so there are several studies in which a vegetarian lifestyle was examined in comparison with a traditional non-vegetarian lifestyle. A higher dietary acid load (caused by greater consumption of acid-forming foods, such as cereals and meat, than of alkali-forming foods, such as fruit and vegetables) is believed to result in bone mineral dissolution and greater bone resorption, which results in the release of carbonate, citrate, calcium, sodium, and potassium.
Hormones and osteoporosisOver and over again, women are warned to start supplementing calcium and take up weight lifting once they are in their 40s as otherwise we will end up with frail bones at old age.
Bone loss in menopause
Osteoporosis is a naturally occurring phenomenon when bones decrease in density, resulting in weakness and a higher likelihood to break.
Anyone can develop osteoporosis, not just women over 50 years but also men (generally over 70) or anyone who's been bedridden for a long time. The scary part is that bone loss happens without noticable symptoms until a bone breaks spontaneously after a fall that normally would only leave bruises.
