greens+ bone builder

For 20 years greens+ has stood the test of time as Canada’s favorite green food supplement , providing consumers with improved health, energy and vitality, as well as nourishing the body with protective antioxidants and detoxifying ingredients.

With statistics stating that more than 10 million North Americans have osteoporosis, more than 35 million have low bone mass and that there are more than 1.5 million osteoporosis-related fractures each year; we recognize that osteoporosis is one of the major health concerns of our time. That’s why we painstakingly formulated greens+ bone builder and introduced it in 2006!

Based on leading research,  greens+ bone builder contains a synergistic blend of the most powerful bone-building antioxidants, vitamins and minerals including Vitamins C, D3, Lycopene and 3 forms Calcium, PLUS a base of the highly alkaline-forming, nutrient-rich greens+. Another reason that greens+ bone builder has such a positive effect on bone health is due to the naturally occurring Vitamin K content. Studies show that Vitamin K from green vegetation can reduce fracture rates and can increase bone mineral density.

Bone loss can starts earlier that we generally think – in our early 30’s! Without proper nutritional support, bone loss increases more rapidly, including risk for fractures and osteoporosis. And while Calcium and Vitamin D have long been recommended, studies now show they are not enough. Just one scoop daily builds and protects your bones, while increasing your energy and vitality – naturally.

Based on leading research, greens+ bone builder feeds your body the most important bone-building nutrients, helping to:
• Stimulate bone formation (via osteoblasts)
• Inhibit cells which break down bone (osteoclasts)
• Promote alkalinity in the body to retain minerals, prevent oxidative stress and maximize Calcium absorption
• Reduce risk for osteoporosis, bone fractures, curvature of the spine

Available in natural blackberry and vanilla flavours. Also available in convenient bone builder capsules and tablets.

The Research


The original supplement that started the green food revolution is still the best choice to improve your energy and well-being and support bone health! Research shows greens+:
• Increases energy and improved overall well-being
• Provides highest Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity (ORAC) - a measure of antioxidant ability
• Promote bone formation through the production of osteoblasts
• Highest Potential Renal Acid Load (PRAL) - a measure of alkalinity (a more alkaline body = a healthier body)

New bone health research – this just in!

New results from in-vitro human (cell cultures) studies conducted by Dr. Leticia Rao using greens+ and greens+ bone builder show significant findings in the area of bone health, including increased bone forming cells (osteoblasts) – more so than Calcium alone.

Based on these results, Dr. Rao concluded: "…these findings may suggest that greens+ bone builder can be considered as alternative supplement in the prevention of osteoporosis." Learn more.

The Formula

Per 14.7g/16.4g serving of greens+ bone builder or 3 tablets of bone builder
Note: greens+ bone builder also contains a full serving of greens+
Calcium (formate: 200mg; citrate-malate: 150mg; bisglycinate: 150mg):
New research shows Calcium citrate-malate, long recommended for bone health is not enough. Two new forms: Calcium formate and bisglycinate, provide greater benefits due to their enhanced solubility. For maximum bioavailability and effectiveness, greens+ bone builder contains all 3 forms of Calcium.
500mg
Magnesium (aspartate):
Studies show a direct link between higher Magnesium intake and higher bone density in older adults. Like greens+, Magnesium promotes alkalinity in the body, thereby decreasing the risk for urinary Calcium loss.
300mg
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol):
A major influencer on Calcium status, Vitamin D3 increases absorption from the intestines and helps prevent Calcium loss through the kidneys. Population studies show dietary Vitamin D3, either from supplementation or sunlight exposure, increases protection against osteoporosis and fractures.
800IU
Vitamin C (calcium and magnesium ascorbate):
Essential for collagen (important strengthening component within bones) and bone formation. Population studies show low Vitamin C is associated with lower bone mass and elevated fracture risk. greens+ bone builder specifically contains a non-acidic form of Vitamin C (calcium and magnesium ascorbate).
100mg
Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) and "Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride):
Adequate Folic Acid, Vitamins B12 and B6 status is associated with healthier bone mass. In addition to increasing bone forming cells, they actively lower homocysteine – now recognized as a major risk factor for osteoporosis and bone fractures.
400mcg
10mcg
10mg
Equisetum arvense: Horsetail stem and leaf extract standardized to 7% silica (10:1 = 430mg):
Research shows supplemental Silicon slows natural bone loss with aging. Silicon helps promote bone forming cells (osteoblasts). It also binds and removes Aluminum from the body, which is associated with Calcium loss. greens+ bone builder contains Silicon from horsetail to provide a natural, food-based source.
43mg
Boron (FruiteX B® Osteoboron™):
Boron is critically important for bone health as it helps prevent Calcium and Magnesium loss and assists in the metabolism of Vitamin D3. Human studies show that the target dose for Boron to increase bone mass is 3mg (as found in greens+ bone builder)
3mg
Zinc (Bioactive™ proteinate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae):
Copper (HVP* chelate),
Manganese (Bioactive™ proteinate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
These minerals are essential co-factors which help enzymes work properly – including the manufacture of bone tissue. Deficiencies in these nutrients have profound effects on overall bone mass density. Intervention studies show these nutrients to be more beneficial in bone loss versus Calcium alone.
10mg
1mg
3mg
L-Lysine:
L-Lysine is an amino acid that has been shown to promote osteoblasts, improve Calcium absorption from the GI tract, and prevent Calcium loss from the kidneys. Due to its ability to increase bone mass, it is a recommended supplement for adults with osteoporosis.
400mg
Selenium (Bioactive™ proteinate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
One of the most important antioxidant minerals – particularly with research linking high levels of oxidative stress in today’s environment to compromised bone health. In a large study (over 1200 subjects), those with the highest Selenium intake were 73% less likely to suffer a hip fracture versus those with the lowest intake.
100mcg
Lycopersicon esculentum fruit extract supplying 7mg of Lycopene:
In studies conducted at the University of Toronto, Lycopene has been shown to stimulate bone formation by osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) and has an inhibitory effect on the cells which break down bone mass (osteoclasts). Following these studies, researchers from Australia also showed higher dietary Lycopene intake with the prevention of bone loss in adults.
7mg

Love it!

Love the vanilla flavour just the way it is. It isn't too sweet to us.

My husband has osteopenia, and this is a critically important part of his treatment plan. I take it as well to support my bones.

Keep up the great work! Love your products!

I add apple cider vinegar to cut the stevia aftertaste.

I tried this product several years ago and quit because of the aftertaste. Since my natural doctor recommended it I am trying it again this time with apple cider vinegar, about 3 tablespoons. Hope that doesn't affect the results.

Back degenerative disease

My wife has back degenerative disease and at 37, the doctor told her that her back was the same as a 70 year old's. She had a lot of back pain and was quite worried what the future would bring. I saw this product at the store one day and bought it for her. About a month after she starting taking it, she said her pain was gone, her energy was good, and she sleeps much better. She is going to have x-rays done again in a few months and I am anxiously waiting to see how they will look then!

want less sweetner

Love the product. Prefer the non-tablet form, but wish it had less sweetner. Vanilla is my preference.

a staple in our home

My boyfriend and I both love this product. We way prefer the vanilla flavor over the blackberry flavor, and I don't find it "too sweet" at all. Plus, I'm glad the sweetener is stevia and not sugar or an artificial sweetener. It's pretty tasty mixed with water.

The most obvious evidence we have indicating the effectiveness of this product is my boyfriend's fingernails, one in particular. For the first time in 14 years (since he injured the finger in a work accident) his nail on that finger has grown in healthy since being on greens+bone builder. We first noticed the nail repairing itself after about 4 weeks taking this product. The nail now looks completely normal. It convinced us
that the product was working.

I've started using Genuine Health as my "go to" line of products, I feel they are high quality and worth the price.
