“The research on Osteo Boost’s particular peptide, FORTIBONE®, speaks volumes about the impact of this particular collagen — in protecting against bone fractures, improving bone density, joint density and stiffness that can steadily improve the quality of life and overall health of the user,” says Dr. Jaime Seeman
Dr. Seeman explains the science behind why this new approach to bone health is just the answer we needed to help support women suffering from bone mineral density loss.
Daily supplementation of 5,000 mg of FORTIBONE® for 12 months significantly increased BMD in postmenopausal women.
Femoral neck: increased bone mineral density by 7.7%
Lumbar spine: increased bone mineral density by 4.2%
A bone mineral density (BMD) test using DXA is the gold standard method to assess bone health.
Ref: Konig et al (2018)
Studies examined the effects of FORTIBONE® in comparison to milk proteins, calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K and the mean increase in bone mineral density (BMD) % was measured in the trial versus control.
FORTIBONE® had nearly four times the benefit to the spine and more than seven times the benefit on the femoral neck.
Daily suppmlementation of FORTIBONE® resulted in pronounced and statistically significant increase in BMD in women suffering from bone mineral density decline.•
In one study, Knefeli 2018, FORTIBONE® was clinically tested with patients with fractured bones in a double-blinded placebo controlled study.
FORTIBONE® was found to have a positive impact on bone healing, with an improved clinical outcome compared to placebo, irrespective of the type of fracture.
79% of patients using FORTIBONE® had a “very good” or “good” outcome, while 50% of patients in the placebo group had a sub-optimal or bad outcome.
Rorey Hunter, an elite Australian middle-distance runner, suffered a stress fracture in his foot. Recommended by his doctor, Rorey supplemented with 10g of FORTIBONE® daily, for 12 months.
"Since using FORTIBONE®, I have been healthier than ever, and my performances have improved significantly as a result. I put this down to being able to sustain consistent training, and using FORTIBONE® has played a key role in this ability to recover from hard training. FORTIBONE® is also very easy to consume and conveniently free from a foul aftertaste like other collagen supplements," says Rorey Hunter.
I was diagnosed with osteoporosis last February. My provider recommended different medications. I was only 53 and did not want to be on meds for the next 30-40 years. I am also a nurse in a nursing home so I know what osteoporosis looks like and the damage it can do. Instead, I decided to throw everything I could at slowing this degenerative disease. I started walking on my treadmill. I started weight lifting (I did get a trainer so I could prevent injury and learn good form). I increased my protein to support increased muscle mass. I started HRT as I was in menopause. I also implemented Sparkle Wellness collagen, first the Skin Boost Plus and then Osteo Boost. It has been a year and my DEXA score went from -2.8 to -1.7 (anything less than -2.5 is osteoporosis). I am in the osteopenia stage but am no longer considered at “high risk for fracture”. I believe all of these things worked together to help build back some of my bone density and Osteo Boost Powder was part of that. As long as I am able, I intend to keep doing what I have been doing.
This has zero flavor which makes it so easy to mix into anything. I’m really enjoying it!
I put it in my tea and there is no after tease.
I cannot attest to whether or not my bone density is improving at this point, but Sparkle collagen products are the only ones that don’t upset my stomach, they completely dissolve and I love they offer a flavorless option. I hate fake sugar!
