As many Xtend-Life customers know, we discontinued our Calcium/superphytonutrient product a few months ago because of the difficulty of obtaining some of the raw ingredients to the standards that we require.
When it became apparent that we were going to have a problem we began development on a new replacement product. As with all the products we develop our objective was to develop the most effective product possible and supply it to our customers with the best value for money possible.
The net result is Bone-Protec which contains a synergistic blend of all the active ingredients that promote good bone health. It has a pure Okinawan Coral Calcium, magnesium, but as importantly Boron, vitamin D3 which are the minimum co-factors needed for good bio-availability of calcium.
There are of course many inexpensive products on the market which contain just calcium, magnesium, boron and Vitamin D3…
But, we didn’t stop at this. We wanted to ensure that we had the best product in this field so went a number of steps further. We added:
* Strontium. Not to be confused with the radioactive type. Strontium is an important part of the diet but is lacking in most people. It is an essential element for building strong bones.
*Lycopene. This carotenoid has also been shown to play an important role in bone health.
*Piperine. This ingredient helps with the bio-availability of the active ingredients.
* Vitamin K2. This is another substance that has been proven to help in building strong bones particularly when combined as a co-factor of calcium. You may recollect that a reader brought up the question of Vitamin K2 in the blog recently. They were referring to the Vitamin K2 being promoted by Dr Mercola.
He is providing Vitamin K2 for US$39.95. We are providing the same amount in a bottle of Bone-Protec, plus a LOT more, for less.
* Mangosteen extract. We wanted to include a good powerful phytonutrient in the formula. This was not so much based on science but rather on anecdotal reports of how effective our old formula was which we believe was partly due to the presence of the phytonutrients.
So, we investigated the options for various extracts to include and decided upon Mangosteen. We were going to use Acai extract which is a new Amazonian fruit. We purchased some for testing but had to reject it when we found the micro count on it was high. The factory in Brazil assures us that they are sorting out the problem but in the meantime they were prepared to irradiate the product to get the micro count within specifications.
We were not prepared to accept irradiated ingredients! We will keep an eye on developments over there and we may use Acai at some stage in the future if they can get their powder to a high enough standard.
For now, we believe we have an excellent product for all those people who either have osteoporosis or wish to take preventative measures to ensure that their bones remain strong. If you don’t have any bone problems you may like to do what I am now doing and that is just take a third dose, one capsule a day. Otherwise take the full daily dose of 3 capsules.
