It works great !!
Posted by Crotchetymama on Oct 30, 2012
I really can't tell if this is working. It does dissolve, which is better than most of them. I just started taking it, so we'll see. My nutritionist says it is pretty okay. It seems to have a wide variety of things that improve calcium uptake...so I guess I can say it is pretty good. Anyway, it was my best pick! :-D Update: Still good, and no bone loss, so I guess it is doing the job!

For the last two or three years I have been using this product. In listening to a nutritionist I heard magnesium oxide has about a 4% absorption rate. I did the research and found this is true. This is the main magnesium ingredient in Bone Up. Most calcium / magnesium supplements use the magnesium oxide, at least 80% oxide. This form of magnesium must be very cheap. The studies are self evident that the oxide version is a very poor choice. So I tried magnesium glycinate. Immediately my body changed, the aches and pains in my back and neck went way down. The muscles around my face loosened up - tear ducts working better so eyes aren't so red, bags decreased significantly, chewing muscles from TMJ not spasming as much. Essentially, I have been taking Bone Up and been magnesium deficient. Coral calcium is no better for me. I will never order Bone Up or coral calcium again. I have gone to a food source calcium / magnesium and am supplementing with the magnesium gycinate. The difference is very significant. Hopefully this will be helpful to people. Just because Jarrow puts a lot of ingredients in their products does not mean it is good.

Good combination of calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D etc. to strengthen bones
smells like milk.

I was worried about my bone. But, drinking milk everyday is kind of bothersome to me, so I bought this, Bone-up. well, I hope that it help my density of bone up.

I like Jarrow Formulas anyway. This must be working for me - my bone density is above noremal for my age (65+). In fact, it improved in the hips. I should also add that I do yoga and walking.
Always the best calcium

Tried many kinds of calcium; this proves to be the best I have gotten my hands on.
This is not a superior product.

What you want is Calcium citrate. Microcrystalline hydroxyapatite absorption is below 22%. Calcium citrate absorption is about 42%.
