greens+ bone builder – More Than Just Calcium

While ensuring that we get enough calcium in our diet is critical to bone health it is also essential to pay attention to other nutrients that help to facilitate its absorption and utilization. No nutrient in the body works alone, and ensuring we have a proper balance is imperative to promoting bone health. That is exactly why Sam Graci created greens+ bone builder with all the nutrients below (and then some!) to promote optimal calcium uptake, and all around bone health.
