Osteo-Guard Plus Ipriflavone
Osteo-Guard Plus Ipriflavone, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, combines ipriflavone, a flavonoid isoflavone, with calcium from microcrystalline calcium hydroxyapatite compound (MCHC) prepared from whole bovine bone, and magnesium from an amino acid complex. Osteo-guard Plus Ipriflavone also provides phosphorus trace minerals, bone matrix proteins, amino acids, and glycosaminoglycans in their natural forms.
Bone is constantly turning over, a continuous process of formation and resorption. In normal aging, there is a gradual loss of bone. Ipriflavone helps promote bone density by inhibiting bone resorption. Numerous studies of postmenopausal women and individuals whose bones are showing signs of demineralization have investigated the benefits of ipriflavone on bone health. Laboratory and clinical studies have documented ipriflavone’s positive effect on bone density.
Osteoclasts and osteoblasts are two primary types of bone cells. Osteoblasts, the more exterior cells, are responsible for bone mineralization. Osteoclasts, found beneath the osteoblasts, are responsible for bone resorption. Experts agree that ipriflavone appears to directly inhibit osteoclast activity, thereby decreasing bone resorption. Scientists suspect ipriflavone may also stimulate osteoblast activity.
Osteo-Guard Plus Ipriflavone may be a useful dietary supplement for anyone who wishes to increase their intake of calcium, magnesium and other nutritional factors for maintaining good bone health.
