Bone Assist provides clinically relevant doses of the three fat-soluble vitamins essential to optimal bone health. Although needed for cardiovascular health, blood sugar regulation, immune function, and inflammation control, vitamins A, D, and K2 have complementary physiological bone-related functions, such as modulating gene expression in osteoblasts and carboxylating osteocalcin, an enzyme needed for bone formation. This is exemplified by a reduction in undercarboxylated osteocalcin and an increase in bone mineral density (BMD) in postmenopausal women when vitamin K is added to vitamin D supplementation.
Vitamin D has diverse and significant functions in multiple body systems, and widespread deficiency magnifies these crucial roles. Supplementation is associated with a well-established reduction in osteoporotic fracture. Correcting a vitamin D deficiency is critical when supplementing with vitamin A, as vitamin A appears to promote bone health if vitamin D levels are adequate. Vitamin K is now recognized as being necessary not only for coagulation, but for the carboxylation of enzymes critical for both bone and blood vessel health. Indeed, meta-analysis has shown improvement in vertebral BMD and reduction in fracture among post-menopausal women with osteoporosis, while controlled trial data shows a reduction in the age-related decline in BMD among healthy postmenopausal women. The naturally derived MK-7 form in Bone Assist has a longer half-life than any other form.
