Source Naturals - MBP Bone Renew - 60 Capsules
Source Naturals MBP Bone Renew is a natural protein complex contained in trace amounts in milk. MBP promotes healthy bone density by increasing the growth of bone-forming cells and by making bones more receptive to calcium. MBP has been shown in four double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials to support healthy net bone formation in women of all ages after 6 months of use. MBP should be taken once daily.
- Increases the activity of bone building cells
- Makes bones more receptive to calcium
- Comes in a small capsule taken once daily
MBP is highly purified, concentrated, and with only trace amounts of lactose, is suitable for most lactose intolerant people. MBP is not a calcium supplement, but it helps our bodies use dietary calcium effectively and works synergistically with other bone supporting nutrients.
Our bones contain a matrix of living cells that are in a constant state of flux, always forming new bone and breaking down old bone. As with any living system, bones must be fed with the nutrients they need to thrive.
Calcium is the main building material of bone, but must be incorporated to be effective. Vitamin D enables your body to absorb calcium from the foods you eat. MBP helps bone utilize calcium more effectively by increasing the activity of bone building cells relative to bone dissolving cells. Additionally, our bones need phosphorus, magnesium, copper, boron and manganese. Vitamins C and K are also needed for the body to generate collagen and other bone proteins. These proteins form the mortar of bone structure.
With the building blocks and mortar in place, bone health centers around the intricate cycle of two types of cells. Osteoblasts are responsible for making bone. Other cells, called osteoclasts, remove bone as its minerals are needed for use elsewhere in the body or as bone needs to be replaced. Bone health is a balance of the two. As we enter middle age, it is normal for osteoblasts to be less active than in youth. With normal aging, lower estrogen
levels in women can result in increased bone turnover, and lower bone mass.
One important role of osteoblasts in bone health is producing collagen, a protein that forms a remarkably strong web matrix upon which the bones form. As we normally age, the links in the collagen chains become altered and bone becomes more brittle. The secret to bone health is to feed these important cells the nutrition they need to support their work.
Although many people supplement to make sure they are getting enough calcium, some researchers believe that it is possible to have too much calcium. What is important is to make sure that dietary and supplemental sources combined give you just the right amount. MBP is effective at putting the calcium you already get from your diet to work. MBP supports healthy bone density by promoting a beneficial balance of bone building and bone breakdown. MBP is a mixture of proteins including cystatin C, kininogen fragment 1.2, angiogenin, lactoferrin and lactoperoxidase. In human clinical trials with women of all ages, MBP supported healthy net bone formation after 6 months of use.
Strong healthy bones give us the mobility and the means to enjoy life. Our bodies reach peak bone mass at around age 30, so it’s never too early to start caring for them with a healthy diet, weight bearing exercise and the right supplements. Source Naturals MBP can help you make your bone building regimen stronger.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn't exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority.
