Having trouble building bone? This supplement may be what you need

Men and women both produce estrogen and testosterone. These hormones are obviously at different levels and serve multiple functions. Bone loss in men and women can be significantly reduced when hormone, mineral and nutrient levels are adequate.

Supplementing with only calcium, magnesium and Vitamin D3 is not always enough to adequately maintain bone if estrogen levels are too low. Reducing bone loss is one of the roles that estrogen plays in both men and women.

When our bodies have adequate minerals and nutrients, estrogen assists in maintaining bone by inhibiting cells called osteoclasts. Osteoclasts are cells which remove bone (while osteoblasts build bone). Our bodies will put osteoclasts to work removing bone if calcium levels drop too low. Calcium is critical for muscle contractions (like the heart) so losing bone is an acceptable alternative to muscle failure. Therefore having adequate levels of estrogen will support bone maintenance. That is why osteoporosis is related to lower hormone levels.

Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring plant compounds similar in structure to estradiol.  Estradiol is the predominate hormone in the group of steroid compounds which comprise estrogens. Some phytoestrogens, like genistein (which is the primary isoflavonoid in soy) mimic the role of estrogen. Many people who have reduced levels of estrogen supplement with genistein in an effort to increase estrogen and reduce bone loss. However, because it is soy-based, some people are unable to take genistein due to allergies or a desire to avoid soy products.

Fortunately Bonistein® is a non-soy substitute which is 95% genistein. Bonistein® is non-GMO, completely allergen-free and functions as well, if not better, than soy-based genistein.

Prime™ Balance Bone Formula is a delicious, lemon flavored, drinkable supplement containing Bonistein® in addition to calcium, magnesium,Vitamin D3 and other nutrients which support bone formation. For men and women with lower amounts of estrogen, Prime Balance™ Bone Formula with Bonistein® may be the missing link you’ve been in need of to develop and maintain strong bones.
