Country Life, Gluten Free, Bone Solid, 180 Capsules10 Reviews
Expiration Date: Dec 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Our Pledge of Integrity
The calcium contained in Bone Solid is microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA), a form of calcium that is closest to the body's own natural bone composition. The structure of MCHA is that of calcium phosphate, and 90% of the body's calcium is stored in the bones in this form.
To aid in bone formation, vitamins K1, K2 and D3 are added in generous amounts. A clinical study among post-menopausal women over a 3 year period showed that these vitamins played a proper role in bone metabolism.
Bone Solid also contains FruiteX-B, which contains a patented form of boron. Boron may help to support bone health.

Did you know that bone loss begins for many of us at age 30? Whether you are a man or woman, you will begin to lost bone density year after year. An important step is to regularly replenish and increase your body's intake of calcium as well as vitamins K1, K2 and D3.
Introducing Bone Solid, a specially formulated product that contains a unique natural form of calcium, as well as other minerals that your body recognize as similar to its own natural bone composition. Through Bone Solid's Triple Action, your body's calcium will be better replenished and increased:
Bone Solid's Triple Action:
- Increased mineral utilization: Microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) is identical to the body's natural bone composition.
- Strengthen bones: This powerful formula of MCHA combined with nutrients such as vitamin K1, K2 and D3 builds and protects bones.
- Support bone metabolism: Bone is regenerated by the body and goes through a metabolic process. The inclusion of nutrients such as vitamins K1, K2, and D3 aids in this process for better bone support.
Adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life, as a part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I am surprised to read in the product description:"vitamins K1, K2 and D3 are added in generous amounts". Country Life emailed me that they actually include ONLY 11mcg of the expensive proven form of Vitamin K2 (MK7) menaquinone-7. MK-7 is vital in getting calcium into the bones instead of between the joints where it will add to arthritis. You need 45mcg to 200mcg per day. K2 menaquinone-7 is the only form of K2 proven by research to build strong flexible bones. Research, especially by a Dr in Holland, shows the other forms of K2 are just not proven to build bones. K1 is extremely cheap and does nothing more than clot blood, while K2-menaquinone-7, being made by fermentation, is the hardest of all to come by, and is very expensive: that's why they only have 11mcg! I also DO NOT appreciate that these have magnesium oxide in them. This is the cheapest, stingiest form of magnesium and is not well absorbed. - This and the stingy amount of MK-7 make me very suspicious of the good intentions of this company. They are a little more expensive than the Now brand Bone Strength - 9.21 cents compared to Now's 7.6 cents. BoneSolid has a lot more Boron. Taking either of these companies' bone builders, you will also need seperate K2 in its MK-7 version. Good news is that Iherb sells other brands that tell you exactly how much K2-menaquinone-7 they have: Drs. Best Calcium Bone Maker has 80mcg of Mk-7, Alive has 100mcg of Mk-7 Garden of Life has 100mcg of Mk-7.
This product bought for its stated purpose, bone health, worked well for a few weeks or less and the I got "the runs" and had to figure out why and after consulting one book after another concluded it was the magnesium oxide. Actually if you read ADAPTOGENS in Medical Herbalism by Donald R. Yance, a superb reference you would not want to miss, you will find that magnesium is essential to bone health and health in general and most people are deficient. Magazine oxide is not only poor digested but often results in diarrhea. I had not bought a Country Life supplement in a very very long time. I will not soon forget and not buy another.
