Why use calcium and mineral formulas?
Calcium and other minerals are primary building blocks for bones.
Bone is living tissue and needs calcium and other important nutrients to support healthy bones and teeth, and support healthy bone density. Since proper calcium intake can’t always be met through diet alone, a strong supplement can make a huge difference.

Why use OsteoPrime® Forté?
It’s designed for complete bone health.
OsteoPrime® Forté bone formula delivers balanced nutrients to support and maintain healthy bones; including 5 forms of calcium for strong bones and teeth; magnesium to help form new calcium crystals; and zinc, vitamin C, and boron to help form the connective structures of the bone.

OsteoPrime® Forté uses clinically proven ingredients.
This combination uses ingredients proven to support healthy bones and increase bone density.

OsteoPrime® Forté is formulated by Jonathan Wright, M.D., and Alan Gaby, M.D.
Dr. Wright is medical director of the Tahoma Clinic and a regular contributor to Prevention and Let’s Live magazines, and Dr. Gaby is President of the American Holistic Medical Association & Medical Editor of The Townsend Letter for Doctors. Their combined expertise created OsteoPrime® Forté bone formula.

OsteoPrime® Forté contains both strontium and calcium. Should these two minerals be taken together or will one interfere with the absorption of the other?

Dr. Alan Gaby, co-formulator of OsteoPrime® Forté, comments:

To the best of my knowledge, the idea that strontium and calcium should not be taken together is theoretical, and not based on any clinical research. Some of the studies in which strontium therapy was beneficial did not separate the strontium from the calcium, or at least did not mention anything about whether or not they were taken together or apart. There are many nutrients that share the same absorption mechanism with other nutrients, but that does not mean they have to taken separately. Many foods contain both strontium and calcium, and the body seems to have figured out how to absorb them both.

It is possible (though I am not aware of any documentation) that, when giving massive doses of strontium, the absorption would be greater if calcium were not taken at the same time. However, there is evidence that high-dose strontium has significant adverse effects, including some adverse effects on bone. There is also evidence that lower doses of strontium may be more effective than higher doses, with respect to maintaining bone health. For those reasons, I am reluctant to recommend the high doses of strontium that some doctors claim should not be taken at the same time as calcium. The amount of strontium in OsteoPrime® Forté is physiological (i.e., similar to the amount naturally occurring in food), and one might reasonably presume that the body’s normal absorption mechanisms would be able to handle both the strontium and calcium at the same time.

Why so many types of calcium in this formula?

Simply put, more forms of calcium ensure more complete availability in the body. Each calcium salt—that is, each calcium attached to a different mineral—offers differing quantities of elemental calcium. Elemental calcium is the "bottom line" amount of calcium you absorb from food or a supplement. And while some calcium/mineral combinations have more elemental calcium than others, they’re not always easy to absorb. For example, calcium lactate is about 32 percent absorbed while calcium citrate is approximately 30 percent absorbed. Tricalcium phosphate is an important addition to the formula because is the most prevalent form of calcium in human bone.

OsteoPrime® Forté has a lighter color; has there been a formula change?

Riboflavin gives OsteoPrime® Forté its natural, creamy color. The lighter color is the result of a change in the riboflavin ingredient. We have switched to a higher quality ingredient, with greater dispersibility. This ensures every dose provides the exact same level of active ingredients for consistent results.

Can you tell me why the calcium products don’t mention that they need to be taken with food? I’ve heard that food improves absorption.

Calcium absorption varies based on many things, including the form of calcium as well as the presence of food in the digestive tract. While some research suggests that absorption might be a little better with food, it is not necessary to take calcium supplements with food to receive health benefits. If an individual has a sensitive stomach, we do recommend taking supplements with food to lessen the chance for stomach upset.
