Osteo-B II™, like Osteo-B Plus® is a comprehensive bone support formula. Bone is a dynamic tissue that requires adequate nutrition for maintenance and growth. Adequate calcium and vitamin D intake throughout life is linked to reduced risk of osteoporosis through the mechanism of optimizing peak bone mass during adolescence and early adulthood, or slowing the rate of bone loss for persons with a family history of the disease, post menopausal women, and elderly men and women. Although calcium is an important component to support bone health, other nutritional synergists are equally important, to support and nurture the skeletal system. Osteo-B II supplies key nutritional synergists, including Calcium and Magnesium in a 1:1 ratio. Osteo-B II™ is similar to the product Osteo-B Plus, however, Osteo-B II is a smaller tablet that does not contain copper, utilizes phosphorylated forms of B vitamins, and as noted above supplies calcium and magnesium in a 1:1 ratio.
