Osteo Vegan is a highly specialized plant calcium micronized to ensure optimal absorption by delivering the perfect particle size. It is a certified organic whole food with over 70 naturally occurring trace minerals and phytonutrients. Since the calcium in this formula is an all-natural, GRAS certified, plant-derived whole food, it does not have the potential negative effects on arterial calcification that non-food based calcium supplements have.
OsteoV SC™ is an all-natural strontium citrate supplement that is clinically proven to increase bone mineral density when combined with the plant calcium, minerals and bone supporting nutrients found in NuMedica’s Osteo Vegan™. Strontium, a trace mineral found in seawater and soil, is a mineral with similar properties to calcium. Research has shown that strontium may play a role in the formation of osteoblasts, new bone forming cells, while at the same time slowing the breakdown of old bone by inhibiting osteoclasts.
