Great multi-purpose Calcium Supplement!

Posted by Reviewer2534084 on Mar 03, 2010

I have done a lot of research on Calcium, and half the supplements out there aren't readily absorbed and useable by our body. This supplement, made with Hydroxyapatite, is of the same structure of teeth and bones (a mineral of Calcium and Phosphorus) and is almost entirely bio-available. My daughter, whose teeth erupted with Enamel Hypoplasia (due to my calcium deficiency as I was nursing) and had small caries- has seen almost complete remineralization and HEALING since I started taking the supplement and used it on her teeth. As these are easily opened capsules I would sprinkle a little on her toothbrush and brush her teeth with this and a good anti-bacterial fluoride-free toothpaste (I like Weleda Calendula Toothpaste) I feel great! I also take this with Extra Virgin Organic Coconut oil and Caprylic Acid as these facilitate Calcium and Magnesium absorption.

A Brilliant Formula!

Posted by Reviewer2014933 on Feb 21, 2008

I have fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and bone spurs in my neck, ruptured discs, and degenerative disc disease from the top of my spine to the bottom. I'm also menopausal, so I need calcium. I've tried a lot of high-quality calcium supplements and formulas. All of them gave me tight muscles and made my pain so bad that I couldn't take them. For years now I've only been able to take Magnesium Malate for my bones and pain. UNTIL I tried Bone Strength! With this supplement, my pain has actually improved about 80%. This is a brilliant formula! Wish I could give it 10 stars.

Now foods, Bone Strength....

Posted by Reviewer3232819 on Aug 30, 2008

Not too long ago I ordered Now Foods, Bone strength and Myrhha oil whith is good for gums and the immune system. My back tooth was hurting bad so I went to the dentist and he wanted to pull it as there wasn't much bone left anyway. I said no, came home ordered those two products and hoped for the best. Now three weeks later it doesn't hurt anymore and I'm praying that it's possible for the tooth bone to grow back. The dentist did give me a perscription for anti biotic which obviously got rid of the infection. Now it's wait and see before I go back to the dentist to get another x ray. So far everything seems normal. I am 72 years old. Virginia

Excellent multimineral formula

Posted by Reviewer1889787 on Nov 28, 2008

Good multimineral with MCHA (microcrystalline hydroxyapatite) forms of minerals, a well-absorbed type bound with phosphorus and similar to the type of calcium found in bones. Bone Strength is the same formula as Doctor's Trust Bone Builder with Boron. Since it contains some glucosamine, it is an excellent mineral supplement for those with arthritis and other painful joint conditions.. Now Bone Strength and Now Full Spectrum Mineral Caps are my favorite multivitamins. Bone Strength contains an approx 3:2 ratio of calcium to magnesium while Full Spectrum Mineral Caps contains a 1:1 ratio, but does not contain glucosamine. Either one is excellent.

Great ingredients...

Posted by Reviewer1975446 on Mar 06, 2009

Used to buy Planetary Herbals Calcium & Magnesium but I liked the ingredients in this better. Plus I love so many products from Now Foods, so i figured I couldn't go wrong. Seems to work fine. Helps with period cramps--try this instead of pain relievers.
