While most of us recognize calcium as an important mineral for bone health, calcium and other minerals represents only 20-40% of total bone mass and calcium alone is not sufficient for proper bone health and strength. Trace elements, especially slilica, are also essential for normal growth and development of skeletons in humans. Although they are minor structural components of teeth and bone, they play important functional roles in bone metabolism and bone turnover. In addition, these minerals need to be present in the appropriate ratios in order to be optimally effective. Eidon Bone Support is the only liquid supplement to offer these essential minerals in their proper ratios, all in a silica base:
Boron (3 mg) - Recent studies have reported possible improvements in bone mineral density in women who supplemented with boron. Boron's role in bone metabolism appears to be associated with its interactions with other minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
Calcium (2.25 mg) - 98% of the body's calcium is stored in our bones. Its purpose in bone is to create rigidity (giving us our distinctive shape) and as a storehouse for the body's metabolic needs for calcium such as nerve transmission, blood clotting, wound healing and blood pH balancing.
Magnesium (2.25 mg) - 64% of the body's Magnesium is concentrated in the bones. Magnesium deficiency results in impaired bone growth and may lead to increased bone loss and skeleton fragility.
Manganese (.02 mg) - The role of manganese in cartilage metabolism appears to be centered on its involvement in the synthesis of proteoglycans, which are major constituents of cartilage's extra cellular matrix.
Silica (131.3 mg) - Studies indicate that silica supplementation can increase bone density. Silica is essential for building the bone/collagen matrix that other minerals bond with for proper mineralization. Silica deprivation can lead to diminished bone flexibility and strength.
Sulfur (7.5 mg) - Approximately 10% of the body's total sulfur content is concentrated in bone. Proteins involved in musculoskeletal development and support all require sulfur within their molecular framework.
Zinc (.14 mg) - Zinc regulates secretion of calcitonin from the thyroid grand which influences bone turnover and calcium reabsorption to maintain blood pH. Serum and bone levels of zinc are often low in individuals who experience bone loss to some degree.
Eidon Bone Support is a synergistic blend of minerals known to have a positive effect on bone strength and flexibility. Supplementation is important at any age, but especially as we pass the age of forty.
NOTE: The Bone Support blend will usually have varying degrees of cloudiness. This is due to the Ph of the purified water we use which does have some degree of variability. This does not impact the absorbability or efficacy of the product.
Eidon Liquid Minerals are All Natural, Highly Bioavailable and contain NO sugars, starch, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or animal by-products. Vegan and Gluten-Free. Eidon uses the finest ingredients known to us in the formulation of our unique preparations. Out of respect for all life, we do not test - nor have we ever tested - our products on animals.
Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!
