greens+ bone builder : bone formation & prevention of osteoporosis

By Genuine Health

bone builder contains calcium, vitamin D and 9 other trace mineral and antioxidant ingredients to support bone health. bone builder influences the number of bone nodules and the size of the growth. When compared to control extracts without the minerals/antioxidants, bone builder increased the area of bone nodule growth 1000-fold and was shown to be 2-3 times more effective at increasing bone growth area than calcium alone. The trace elements present in bone builder play a beneficial role in bone formation and in the prevention of osteoporosis.

An 8 week, placebo-controlled study involving 47 postmenopausal women was conducted at the University of Toronto. Results were impressive showing that vs. placebo greens+ bone builder significantly increased blood antioxidant capacity and urinary polyphenol content, while significantly decreasing lipid and protein oxidation. The major finding of this study however, was the reduction in CTx, a major marker for bone destruction and factor risk. The greens+ bone builder group showed a 12% decrease in this marker, while levels remained unchanged in the placebo group.

Scientific investigations focused on greens+ have demonstrated that this unique product has direct physiological influences on a variety of the body’s systems. The results show that greens+ improves long-term energy levels and boosts antioxidant levels. In addition, the combined ingredients have significant antioxidant activity (ORAC), work synergistically to alkalize the body (PRAL), protect cells against toxic assault, and promote healthy bones. Among green food supplements, only greens+ with its high quality ingredients and unique blend of standardized herbs is research-proven to provide these results.
