Nourishing the bone
Periodontal disease has been shown to increase the risk of many health conditions including diabetes, stroke, and heart attack. Continuing research is revealing more evidence of the oral-systemic link on a near daily basis. Proper treatment may be lifesaving by eliminating, or drastically reducing, the systemic health risks associated with it. However, bone loss is a lasting effect, even if there is little to no infection remaining. This devastating aspect of periodontal disease, which is often overlooked in treatment, can be addressed with a nutritional supplement product, OsteoTherapy
, from Pharmaden.
The right calcium
Although calcium supplementation is most often recommended for the preservation and regeneration on bone tissue, not all calcium supplements are created equal. Some forms of calcium, such as calcium carbonate, are difficult for some people to assimilate, and often cause acid rebound. Pharmaden’s OsteoTherapy Remineralization Support, contains calcium citrate, which is considered the superior form of calcium.
Additionally, calcium is not always easily absorbed into the body. Like all Pharmaden products
, OsteoTherapy is formulated for maximum bioavailability
. Ingredients like cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) and piper nigrum (extract of black pepper) aid in the absorption of minerals.
More than calcium
Contrary to popular belief, calcium alone is not sufficient nutritional support for bone health.
- Minerals – Bone tissue contains, and needs, a variety of minerals besides calcium. PerioCare includes minerals such as boron, selenium, and silica.
- Vitamins – Among the many health benefits of B vitamins, they help the formation and strength of the collagen network in living bones. Vitamin K activates vital proteins for the development of healthy bone. Vitamin D is necessary for normal bone growth and remodeling, in addition to aiding calcium absorption.
- Other nutrients – Ingredients such as Vitis vinifera seed extract and Betaine HCI further assist in the absorption of minerals, and regeneration of bones.
OsteoTherapy can be used to help build and maintain healthy bones throughout the body. In addition to treating bone loss
, it may help prevent osteoporosis, and periodontal disease
