Vitacost Bone Builder† with Lycopene -- 120 Softgels
Comprehensive multi-nutrient formula to support healthy bones.* With calcium magnesium vitamins D and K and lycopene! What is Vitacost Bone Builder†? Vitacost Bone Builder† combines four top bone-health vitamins and minerals including calcium magnesium vitamin D and vitamin K plus antioxidant lycopene. Unlike many popular calcium and bone-support formulas which require swallowing several bulky rock-hard tablets Vitacost Bone Builder features small smooth softgels. A single (2-softgel) serving supplies:. Calcium 500 mg. As calcium citrate (water-soluble form) that’s absorbed well on a full or empty stomach and calcium malate (a calcium salt of malic acid). Vitamin D 1000 IU. As vitamin D3 a preferred form—the same type naturally produced by the body when skin is exposed to sunlight. Magnesium 200 mg. Supplies half of the Daily Value for this essential mineral. Vitamin K1 100 mcg. The natural form of vitamin K found in vegetables and other foods. Vitamin K2 45 mcg. A biologically active form of vitamin K. Lycopene 15 mg. Well-known antioxidant nutrient found in tomatoes and other red/orange fruits and vegetables. How does Vitacost Bone Builder† support health? Calcium is an essential ingredient of bone that must be constantly replenished.*. Adequate calcium and vitamin D intake throughout life as part of a well-balanced diet may reduce the risk of osteoporosis by slowing the rate of bone loss for people with a family history of the disease post-menopausal women and elderly men and women. Magnesium contributes to calcium absorption.*. Magnesium helps build strong bones by converting vitamin D to its active form and setting in motion key enzymes that stimulate bone cells.*. Vitamin D contributes to bone strength as proper levels create optimum conditions for bone formation.*. Vitamin K is necessary for osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) to activate osteocalcin a protein that binds calcium to bones.* Therefore adequate amounts of vitamin K make certain that calcium is properly delivered to bone and that arterial health is maintained.*. Lycopene is a carotenoid or antioxidant that helps protect healthy cells from free radical damage.*. Why choose Vitacost Bone Builder†? Combines vitamins and minerals for bone health in one convenient formula*. Also supplies antioxidant lycopene. Easy-to-swallow softgels. Contains 60 servings per bottle.

Love The Softgels
March 6, 2013
"I much prefer the softgels to the capsule bone builders that I was using before. I only take 2 softgels compared to 6 capsules and they are much easier to take and digest."
