(Formerly Cal Apatite Plus). Bone Builder Prime by Metagenics is a complete bone-health solution in capsule form for people with osteoporosis, osteopenia or just anyone who wants to be proactive with their bone health.
Bone Builder Forte contains calcium, phosphorous, vitamin D, ipriflavone and trace minerals to support healthy bone growth and density. The source of minerals in this product comes from microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHC), which is sourced directly from bovine. As such, it also contains some minor nutrients found in bone such as zinc, potassium and proteins such as collagen and growth factors.
Metagenics has used MCHC as a mineral source for years because bones are comprised of much more than calcium and magnesium. Providing supplements made directly from bones provides our bodies with all of the supportive nutrients it needs to build bone. Some studies have shown that MCHC does promote bone growth better than the typical calcium supplements.
Ipriflavone is a highly effective supplement (isoflavone derivative) that is helpful in reducing bone loss from a variety of reasons and may help bone-related pain. Studies have shown that it significantly increased bone density, decreased fracture rates and increased mobility with less pain.
