Bone Health Program
InVite®’s Bone Health Program includes two products to support healthy, strong bones- Calplex Hx® and K-Mag Hx®.
Calplex Hx® combines Calcium Citrate with Calcium Hydroxyapatite. Hydroxyapatite is a dominant constituent in human bone. Adequate calcium and vitamin D, as part of a well-balanced diet and along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. K-Mag Hx® combines Magnesium (a very important mineral for bone health) with Vitamin K1, which functions as a chaperone for calcium that supports bone health and circulatory health. The mineral Silicia is needed to attach calcium to collagen in the formation of bone.
Calplex Hx® is a combination of two highly absorbable types of Calcium: Calcium Citrate (250mg) and Calcium Hydroxyapatite (320mg). This InVite® formula also includes additional ingredients necessary for comprehensive bone-building, such as a small amount of Phosphorus Hydroxyapatite at 144mg (14%DV) per serving to support calcium absorption in the intestine, as well as proper formation of bones and teeth. Calplex Hx® also includes Boron Citrate (1mg per 2 tablets), an ultra-trace mineral that has been shown to reduce the excretion of calcium by up to 44% in women who consumed 3mg per day, thereby protecting bone strength. Boron Citrate has also been shown to activate estrogen and Vitamin D, two major mechanisms for improving bone health.*
Adequate intake of Calcium is linked to reduced risk of osteoporosis by slowing the rate of bone loss for anyone with a family history of the disease, post-menopausal women, and elderly men and women. Sufficient calcium and vitamin D intake part of a healthy diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life. Calplex Hx® is an excellent source of Vitamin D3, providing 200IU (50%DV) per 2 tablet serving. It is also an excellent source of Calcium, providing a total of 570mg (57%DV) per 2 tablet serving.
Calcium is not the only mineral needed to protect bones. Studies show that calcium requires other nutrients for proper absorption. In fact, some studies have shown that taking Calcium Carbonate alone, without the support of other nutrients, could even have negative effects. This is why at InVite Health, we make use of the best nutritional research to formulate the safest and most effective products for our customers.
InVite’s K-Mag Hx® formula is a unique combination of three ingredients that balance and protect Calcium supplementation: Magnesium as Magnesium Glycinate, Vitamin K as Phytonadione (Vitamin K1), and Silicon (from Horsetail Silica). While Calcium may be the most important mineral for proper bone formation and density, Magnesium also plays a powerful role in building and maintaining strong, healthy bones. Additionally, Magnesium is an essential mineral in over 300 biochemical processes in the body, including muscle relaxation and normal blood pressure. However, some studies show that in some people, Magnesium may hinder your body’s Calcium absorption process. Therefore, some research shows that Calcium and Magnesium, while both essential, are best taken separately.
K-Mag Hx® includes Vitamin K1, or the clotting vitamin, which has been scientifically show to convert into K2 in the body – this helps to protect the blood vessel walls as well as endothelial cells, as K2 works to remove Calcium from the blood and deposit it in the bone where it belongs. The mineral Silica (1mg),derived from the plant Horsetail, enhances Calcium absorption in the bones, as well as providing its own benefits in supporting veins, cartilage and joints.*
K-Mag Hx® contains 200mg (50% DV) of Magnesium Glycinate, 600mcg of Vitamin K1 (750% DV) and 1mg of Horsetail Silica per tablet. This product is an excellent source of Magnesium and Vitamin K.
