A comprehensive, convenient and cost-effective dietary supplement for support of healthy bone, cartilage and ligaments. Each packet has two capsules containing microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHC), a capsule containing Vitamin D3 and a capsule containing Choline-Stabilized Orthosilicic Acid (ch-OSA®)
Bone is composed of a calcium-based mineral complex and an organic material known as collagen. A somewhat flexible, fibrous protein, collagen appears to be a key component to the bone’s ability to withstand sudden impact. The quantity and health of collagen determines the bone’s “toughness”’ while the mineral content determines it’s strength and stiffness.
Optimal Balance Age Defense is one of the only bone formulas on the market that contains clinically-tested, choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid, a well-absorbed form of silicon. Silicon-dependent enzymes link together single chains of amino acids to synthesize collagen fibers. The surfaces of these collagen fibers act as the binding sites for the MCHC. The more surface area the MCHC has to bind to, the more flexible the bone.
MCHC, a comprehensive, proprietary, standardized extraction from one of the world’s safest, most natural, premium sources of bone contains a crystalline calcium and phosphorous matrix in the ideal physiological ratio of 2:1, bioactive growth factors and Type I collagen Amino acids, glycosamineoglycans and a broad range of essential trace elements are also present.
Combine the ch-OSA ® and MCHC with therapeutic levels of Vitamin D3 and the result is a unique “package” that addresses both quantity and quality of bone, thereby supporting total bone strength and health.*
