Bone Builder with Boron by Metagenics contains their specialized calcium and phosphorus sourced from microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHC ) plus 300 mcg of boron.
Boron is an accessory nutrient/trace mineral that also aids in the production and health of bone in humans. It stimulates vitamin D, estrogen and testosterone production, inhibits rickets, supports calcium metabolism and increases bone stiffness appropriately.
The idea behind using MCHC as a mineral source is that the bones are made up of much more than calcium and magnesium. Providing nutrients directly from bones provides our bodies with all of the supportive nutrients it needs to build bone, not just calcium. Some studies have shown that MCHC does promote bone growth better than the typical calcium supplements.
This product does have 354 mg, or 35% of your daily phosphorus. So, if you consume a lot of milk or grains, adding in extra phosphorus in supplement form might not be necessary. In that case, Bone Builder Vegetarian by Metagenics might be a better product for you.
