Ostigen®: Profile Of A New Therapy
The biology of bone formation, maintenance, and disease involves a complex collection of mechanisms and metabolites. However careful one is to ingest enough calcium, if the body's ability to form bone is impaired, the calcium does not adhere to the bone effectively. The continual destruction and creation of bone is dependent on hormones (including parathyroid hormone, vitamin D, and estrogen), growth factors, and minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and zinc. Osteoblasts, the bone building cells, determine the structure of bone, while osteoclasts clear away aged bone cells.
The main component of OstiGen®, is an organic compound containing high quality dietary calcium in a protein-mineral-complex. Its complex structure is highly bio-available and provides other bone forming and beneficial nutrients required for good health.
• High quality calcium source – dietary calcium
• Balanced mineral profile - the same as bone mineral profile
• Vitamins to aid in calcium absorption
• Proteins required for nutrient transfer and use
