The use of high-collagen diets to improve bone health dates back to ancient cultures. Life Extension brings you this exciting formulation with KoAct®, a patented combination of calcium and collagen for optimal bone health. KoAct® helps to maintain bone strength and mineral density, allowing for greater strength and flexibility and reducing the risk of age-related injuries. Additional plant extracts from bamboo and dried plum have been added for their bone-protective minerals and polyphenols.
Bone Strength Formula with KoAct contains the following ingredients:
- Vitamin D3 - that facilitates absorption of calcium into the bloodstream; regulates how much calcium enters and leaves bone tissue; helps regulate healthy cell division and differentiation; functions as a vital co-factor in bone mineralisation through the absorption of calcium and phosphorus.
- Calcium - KoAct® is a unique patented chelated compound of calcium and hydrolysed collagen peptides (type I collagen), designed to enhance collagen support and turnover while supporting optimal bone mineral density and strength.
- Magnesium - a critical component of our skeleton, with 50-60% of body magnesium found in bone; positively influences the bone mineral matrix and its ability to metabolise minerals, needed for repair and rebuilding.
- Silicon - that plays an important role in bone formation through the synthesis and/or stabilisation of collagen.
- Dried Plum - supports osteoblast (bone building cells) activity and function by upregulating cell - signalling compounds (Runx2, Osterix and IGF-1) and enhancing expression of an enzyme (lysyl oxidase), that is involved in collagen cross-linking.
- Boron - impacts steroid hormone metabolism-affecting the levels of oestrogen and testosterone.
