Are Your Bones Weak?
At Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we have a real-food nutritional product available that is so powerful, it’s actually classified as a medical food. Medical foods are approved to treat a medical condition. Imagine treating osteoporosis without dangerous drugs!
Osteoben ™, created for the dietary management of osteoporosis and osteopenia, improves outcomes with science-based combination therapy. It contains genistein aglycone, a natural substance which may positively regulate bone cell metabolism without serious side effects. It is also rich in calcium and vitamin D3.
In a study published in The Annals of Internal Medicine, the combination of genistein aglycone, calcium, and D3 was found to have increased bone mineral density more than calcium and D3 alone. In addition, the study showed that the triple combination increased new bone formation and decreased levels of bone resorption. Osteoben™ also contains magnesium, vitamin K, and zinc.
Other benefits of Osteoben™ include a significant reduction in the frequency and severity of hot flashes in menopausal women and a reduction in specific predictors of cardiovascular risk, with no side effects or endometrial thickening.
Because Osteoben™ is not a drug but rather a medical food, no prescription is required.
If you’ve been diagnosed with osteoporosis or have a family history of osteoporosis, this product may be right for you. Call our office for more information, stop by, or let’s talk about it during your next appointment.
