Warnings

The vitamin K2 present in this supplement can have an influence on the effect of vitamin K antagonists. These are anticoagulant coumarin-based medicines (the most well-known are marcoumar, coumadin, fenprocoumon, acenocoumarol, and warfarin). Do not take this supplement in combination with this type of medication without consulting a doctor. Other blood thinners such as aspirin, rivaroxaban, and dabigatran do not pose a problem.

Requirements for healthy bones

To maintain strong bone tissue, the body needs sufficient exercise. Without it, bones will become progressively weaker. Therefore it is vital you get enough exercise by walking, cycling or weight lifting, for example. From the age of 50, fitness training offers the best balance between stimulating bone building and a risk of injury.

Besides exercise, good whole foods are essential. Much research has been done on the nutritional components needed to manage the process of bone building. The necessary substances include various minerals, trace elements, vitamins and proteins. They can be found in a healthy and varied diet. So make sure you eat a balanced diet.

Essential vitamin D is obtained only to a limited extent through diet. This vitamin is produced when the skin is exposed to ultraviolet light which, for instance, occurs when the sun is fairly high in the sky. Limited exposure to sunlight during the dark winter months and prolonged indoor time reduces vitamin D production.

Analyses of Europeans' dietary and lifestyle patterns show the most logical nutrients to offer in a dietary supplement that aims to support bone health. Osteo-8 contains - as the name implies - the 8 most important ingredients.

What can Osteo-8 do for you?

- The vitamin D3 and calcium in this supplement help inhibit mineral loss from bone tissue in postmenopausal women.* Lower bone mineral density increases the risk of bone fractures.

- Osteo-8 contains all the essential nutrients that contribute to maintaining normal bones. These include magnesium, zinc, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2. As a strong 'asset', Osteo-8 also contains the vital organic trace element boron.

- Vitamin B12, vitamin C and magnesium reduce fatigue and exhaustion. Use your energy for movement. Movement provides an essential building stimulus to bone tissue.

- The vitamin D3 reduces the risk of falls due to postural instability and muscle weakness. Falls are a risk factor for bone fractures in men and women from age 60 onwards.

What Osteo-8 does not contain?

Osteo-8 contains a smart selection of minerals, vitamins and trace elements that support bone health. Some nutrients are so abundant in food that it is quite easy to take enough of them in. Other nutrients require some extra attention when making food choices.

Manganese and phosphorus are essential for bone tissue. However, deficiencies of manganese and phosphorus are rare. Even when consuming a less healthy diet, it is still quite easy to take in these substances in sufficient amounts. Prolonged use of antacids may trigger a phosphorus deficiency (as well as many other deficiencies).

Because manganese and phosphorus deficiencies are so infrequent, we have not included these nutrients in Osteo-8.

Proteins are also necessary for maintaining and building bone and muscle tissue. However, the required amount of protein is several tens of grams per day. This does not fit into a compact bone formula that consists of 3 capsules a day. Therefore, make sure you eat foods that offer sufficient high-quality proteins, such as dairy, meat, fish, nuts or beans.

One particular dietary protein that specifically supports connective tissues and bones is collagen. You can use this as a separate supplement alongside Osteo-8.
