Calcium is not enough

By Genuine Health

Between the ages of 24-34 all of us can begin to lose bone density. 

The latest ground breaking research shows Calcium and Vitamin D alone are simply not enough. Neither is a diet high in dairy products. We need to combine Calcium and Vitamin D with other proven bone building vitamins, minerals and phyto (plant) nutrients like:

    • Lycopene found in red colored foods, and in high concentrations in cooked tomato products
    • Magnesium
    • Vitamin C
    • Vitamin K
    • Silicon
    • Lysine
    • Boron
    • Zinc, copper, manganese
    • Selenium
    • Folic acid, B-6, B-12

These powerful ingredients are now being incorporated into food-based, bone-building supplements that can easily be added to your daily diet.

Having a more alkalizing diet can help protect and build your bones

  • Research scientists have recently rallied around the new idea that acidic foods interfere with bone building and bone repair cell function.
  • In fact, research has found that an acid-forming diet for just four days increases urinary calcium loss by 74%. The best and easiest thing to do to prevent this is to eat a more alkaline-based diet. That’s a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, particularly getting more greens .
  • An easy way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables is by having an alkalinizing, nutrient rich “green drink” every day.” “The leading green drink, greens+, is the ideal whole food supplement, containing 23 essential ingredients, 18 different colors, phyto(plant)nutrients and fibre.”


greens+ BONE BUILDER, a research-proven formula that works 15x better than Calcium alone.

  • proven to positively influence bone-forming cells (osteoblasts) and stimulate bone mineralization (1)
  • Contains proven bone-building nutrients including Lycopene, Magnesium, Vitamin D, Copper and Manganese (2)
  • Provides highly absorbable (3) forms of Calcium, including Calcium formate, citrate-malate and bisglycinate
  • Provides naturally occurring Vitamin K, critical for proper Calcium absorption
  • Increases overall health and energy (4)

Just one serving daily helps build and protect bones for reduced risk for osteoporosis, while increasing overall health and energy.
