Viridian Bone Complex is an advanced formulation providing highly bio-available forms of calcium and magnesium, along with the synergistic support of vitamin K2 and D2 to maximise activation of proteins, central to bone mineralisation and to help aid in the maintenance of a healthy skeletal system. The formula provides calcium and magnesium on a 1:1 ratio.
Calcium - Osteoporosis is characterised by reduced bone mass resulting in increased skeletal fragility and susceptibility to fractures. Many nutrients are important to bone health but calcium is the one most likely to be deficient.
Magnesium - Magnesium supplementation is as important as calcium supplementation in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis. Women with osteoporosis have lower bone magnesium content and other indicators of magnesium deficiency than women without osteoporosis.
Vitamin C - Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an important nutrient within this formula due to the known benefits of vitamin C on collagen production (e.g. bone matrix).
Boron - Boron appears to assist in healthy bone formation through its effects on calcium and vitamin D metabolism.
Vitamin K - a deficiency of vitamin K leads to impaired bone mineralisation because of inadequate osteocalcin levels.
Malic Acid – It would appear that calcium presented as a citrate/malate salt offers high solubility with superior absorption. Malic acid is a very effective chelation creating a reaction in the stomach to enhance absorption of minerals.
Vitamin D3 - Vitamin D3 is plant derived and is required to enhance the absorption of calcium into the bloodstream as well as protecting against osteoporosis.
