Quick Overview

Osteoben™ is formulated to address the pathophysiology of osteopenia and osteoporosis, providing patients with the proper bone-supportive nutritional requirements in order to safely assist with the dietary management of these conditions. The main active compound of Osteoben™ is the isoflavone genistein, which works to target the decreased BMD (bone mineral density) seen in osteopenia and osteoporosis. - See more at: http://catalog.designsforhealth.com/Osteoben#sthash.8lJK8i5L.dpuf

Osteoben™ has been formulated to: 

1. Increase bone mineral density** 

2. Reduce frequency and severity of hot fl ashes** 

3. Reduce specific predictors of CVD***

Improved Outcomes with Science-Based Combination Therapy

GENISTEIN AGLYCONE: Hormone replacement therapy is an effective treatment for postmenopausal bone loss. However, in some forms, it may increase risk of serious health problems. Genistein is a phytoestrogen that acts as a mild SERM (selective estrogen receptor modulator), which may positively regulate bone cell metabolism without serious side effects. The genistein aglycone in Osteoben™ is from a non-soy plant source.

CALCIUM AND VITAMIN D: In spite of their importance, available data suggest that calcium and vitamin D3 alone are not adequate to manage menopausal bone loss. However, there is good reason to believe that supplementation with these nutrients combined with other intervention strategies (e.g., genistein aglycone) maximizes restoration of bone loss.

COMBINATION THERAPY: In a study published in The Annals of Internal Medicine, the combination of genistein aglycone, calcium and vitamin D3 was compared to calcium and vitamin D3 alone. This study found that the combination therapy: 
• Significantly increased bone mineral density 
• Decreased levels of bone resorption markers, including urinary pyridinoline and deoxypyridinoline 
• Increased levels of markers of new bone formation including levels of bone-specific alkaline phosphatase

• Magnesium (as di-magnesium malate) 
• Vitamin K (as K2 menaquinone-7) 
• Zinc (as citrated zinc bisglycinate)

Recommended Use: Take four capsules per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner (divided dosing recommended).

MBPs are derived from the whey portion of milk protein, therefore Osteoben™ should be well-tolerated by anyone with allergies/sensitivities to lactose or casein. The protein components in MBP are unlikely to present any increased risk of allergy for milk allergic subjects or of cross-reactivity for other allergic subjects. Those with actual whey allergies/sensitivities should consult their physician before taking this product.
