Thorne’s Basic Bone Nutrients unique formula combines four highly researched nutrients that are essential for bone health. Calcium and magnesium ingredients are in optimally absorbed forms that result in a higher concentration of these minerals per capsule. Thorne’s vitamin D ingredient (as vitamin D3) is free from preservatives, lactose diluents that are used in other vitamin D brands. Thorne uses the most well researched form of vitamin K2 available, a primary advantage of including both vitamin K and magnesium is they help keep calcium in the bones rather than in the blood vessels and other soft tissues.
Vitamin K pairs up with vitamin D similar to the way in which magnesium pairs up with calcium. Whenever vitamin D and calcium are purchased by a consumer or prescribed by a practitioner, then vitamin K and magnesium should likewise be included in the daily protocol.
Thorne uses DiCalcium Malate and DiMagnesium Malate for Basic Bone Nutrients, these forms of calcium and magnesium exhibit the synergistic effect of optimal absorption and optimal concentration.
The vitamin K2 is free from soy and has been clinically studied and found to be effective for supporting bone health at uses as low as 45 mcg daily.
