Country life Bone Solid

2 people found the following review helpful

Posted by Reviewer2631717 From Canada on Aug 11, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

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.

Magnesium oxide ruins the product

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.

I like this brand of supplements (it is one of the few I've trusted) and the price compares very well to other bone builder brands. The generous vitamin K dose was one of the deciding factors for purchase since I've wanted to give this a vitamin a try. I do take about an extra 200mg of Mg in the morning since I'm one to get constipated when taking a 2:1 of Ca:Mg. Will write another review after my next bone density scan.

I like this Bone Solid because it contents lots of minerals for keeping bone healthy. Both I and my 10 year girl take a few tablet daily..
