Info: Now Available in 2 Types (Original or Vegetarian)
To help build and maintain strong bones, this New Roots Herbal formulation features microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHC), a highly absorbable form of calcium identical to the form naturally found in humans, which contributes to bone health. Put the strong back in your bones with New Roots Herbal Strong Bones supplement!
Magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, protein, manganese, vitamin D3, vitamin K3 (from MK-4 and MK-7), as well as a host of other nutrients are included in this formula to help strengthen and restore the integrity of bones. In addition, Curcumin aids to reduce inflammation and ease discomfort in the fight against osteoporosis.
The original type of New Roots Strong Bones uses freeze-dried MCHC sourced from pasture-fed New Zealand bovine, which has been certified to be free from antibiotics, herbicides, pesticides and mad cow disease. It also contains curcumin, grape seed extract, EGCG (Green tea epigallocatechin gallate), lycopene, folic acid, and Vitamin B12, which are beneficial and effective ingredients in treating several forms of osteoarthritis, helping to: protect bones from oxidative stress, boost levels of bone mineralization, enhance and maintain bone density, prevent weakening and fractures of bones especially in the elderly.
In addition, a Vegetarian type is now available, which substitutes tricalcium phosphate for the bovine-sourced microcrystalline hydroxyapatite and a botanical form of glucosamine sulfate instead of a crustacean source.
