Don’t Let Osteoporosis Break Your Bones
Osteoporosis causes a person’s bones to become fragile and brittle over time. This condition is more prevalent in women than in men, because women have less bone tissue than men and lose bone strength faster because of hormonal changes during the process of menopause.
One of the dangers of osteoporosis is that it becomes progressively worse without any obvious symptoms, until the person suddenly suffers a fracture. Once this occurs additional fractures are 5 times more likely to occur. Over time osteoporosis can lead to severe pain and deformity, as well as diminished quality of life. Without supplementation as many as 1 in 2 women (and 1 in 4 men) over the age of 50 will have at least one osteoporosis-related fracture.

A deficiency of any one of the following will also adversely affect bone health: Vitamins B6, B12, C, D, K, Folic acid, Boron, Silicon Magnesium, Zinc & Manganese.
Bone Build is combination of all these plus a highly absorbable Calcium that not only aids bone density but also provides support for the framework of the bone. Calcium is available in many forms and unless the most absorbable forms are taken, as little as 4% will be absorbed.
