Label

Pro Bono is a product that incorporates many bone supporting elements in a convenient packet that can be taken on the go. Bone health is an important issue and requires a long term health plan.

The importance of calcium is well known and highly marketed in the United States and Europe for its role in bone health. Other important bone minerals include magnesium and manganese. Approximately 50% of magnesium found in the body is in bone and often times diet alone does not supply the appropriate amounts of magnesium needed to sustain bone health.

Vitamins K and D are also needed to support bone health. Vitamin K is required for the synthesis of osteocalcin, a bone protein needed for bone formation. Pro Bono has included two different forms of vitamin K known as phytonedione (K1) and menaquinone (K2 as MK7). To date most of the research done on vitamin K and bone health has used K1 with positive outcomes. More recently vitamin K2 has been found to have a longer half life than K1, which means serum levels of vitamin K are more stable and longer lasting.

Strontium has also been included in this well rounded bone support supplement. Strontium is a mineral with similar properties as calcium. It is unique in that it increases bone formation while also preventing bone resorption.
