Blooms OsteoBlast provides a rich source of Calcium plus beneficial vitamins and minerals which can assist in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis by increasing bone density. It helps maintain healthy connective tissue, bones and teeth, membrane integrity, muscle contraction and vascular tone. Women’s Calcium requirements are increased following menopause.
Strong bones & teeth
A concentrated source of Calcium and other vitamins and minerals that can assist in maintaining healthy strong bones and teeth.
Blooms OsteoBlast may assist in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
Growth and development
Blooms OsteoBlast contains 10 essential vitamins and minerals vital for growth and development of bones.
A number of vitamins and minerals are required to make and maintain healthy bones. These include:
Calcium: an essential nutrient that is required for strong bones and for supporting the body’s critical functions including blood pressure, heartbeat and nerve conduction. Ninety-nine percent of the body’s Calcium is stored in the bones and teeth. When dietary Calcium intake is too low, the body will take the Calcium it needs from the bones. Over time, if more Calcium is taken out of the bones than is put in, then this can result in thin and weak bones or osteoporosis.
Magnesium: involved in Calcium transport and can affect bone resorption and mineralisation.
Copper: slows bone turnover by inhibiting osteoclast activity.
Manganese: required for the development of the skeleton (bones). It has been observed that, Manganese levels are lower in women with osteoporosis.
Zinc: vital for growth and development. Deficiency can result in growth retardation as well as reduced osteoblast activity and the synthesis of collagen and chondroitin.
Boron: can have anti-osteoporotic activity and can affect Calcium and Vitamin D metabolism. It can also increase the effect of oestrogen on bone – oestrogen has osteoprotective effects.
Silicon: required for healthy connective tissue, bones and teeth.
Vitamin D: assists in the absorption and re-absorption of Calcium. It is particularly important for the development of the skeleton and bone mineralisation. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to softening of the bones. It also increases the mobilisation of stem cells to become osteoblasts.
Vitamin K1 & K2: activates Osteocalcin, a protein produced by osteoblasts that attracts Calcium to bones. High dietary intake of Vitamin K can reduce the risk of fractures in women.
