Bone Strength Formula with KoAct
Throughout life, cells known as osteoblasts construct bone matrix and fill it with calcium. At the same time, osteoclasts work just as busily to tear down and resorb bone. This fine balance is regulated by many factors, including systemic hormones and cytokines. Bone mass reaches its peak by the middle of the third decade of life and plateaus for about ten years, during which time bone turnover is constant, with bone formation approximately equaling bone resorption.1
As our bodies age, this fine balance is lost. As the relative hormone levels shift in midlife more drastically in women than in men the osteoclasts gain the upper hand and bone mass begins to dwindle. Some bone is already being lost by the time women reach menopause, but the rate of loss can increase up to tenfold during the first six years after menopause.
The use of diets high in collagen to improve bone health dates back to ancient cultures. Now Life Extension brings you an exciting formulation with KoAct, a patent-pending chelated form of calcium and collagen designed to maintain optimal bone health. KoAct helps maintain bone strength and mineral density. This remarkable ingredient allows for greater strength and flexibility, so your bones can absorb energy, reducing the risk of age-related injuries. Additional plant extracts from bamboo and dried plum have also been added for their bone-protective minerals and polyphenols.
If you need extra bone support, ask your health care professional how Bone Strength Formula with KoAct can be part of a comprehensive nutritional program in conjunction with proper resistance exercise.
