Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2009
Jarrow Formulas®, Inc., a global wellness and nutritional product company headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, announces that it has sold its 1 billionth capsule of Bone-Up®, the industry's superior calcium formula for maximum bone density and strength. Bone-Up has been clinically proven to reduce bone loss and increase bone mass.
Bone-Up® was launched more than 23 years ago and has sold more than 4 million bottles. Bone-Up® continues to be one of Jarrow Formulas' best selling brands and has received numerous awards over the years, including six "Vity Awards" from Vitamin Retailer Magazine and two http://www.jarrow.com "Best of Supplements" awards from Better Nutrition Magazine.
Bone-Up® is a complete nutritional regimen for bones and joints. It features Australian bovine bone hydroxyapatite, the finest source of calcium available. Hydroxyapatite is the same form of calcium found in human bone tissue. This is bovine bone that has not been ashed or subjected to any chemical solvents.
In 2007, an important study conducted at The Ohio State University and published in the Journal of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine concluded that exercise plus an increased intake of micronutrients from Bone-Up® in young, adult women can improve bone health which could lower the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
In the study, 24 subjects were randomly assigned either a placebo or Jarrow Formulas' Bone-Up®. Subjects consumed the product for eight weeks and were instructed to maintain their standard dietary practices. A resistance program was also followed three days per week for the entire eight week period.
In comparing data from before and after the 8-week study interventions, the micronutrient Bone-Up® treatment plus exercise was found to produce a statistically significant decrease in the various markers of bone breakdown.
The Bone-Up® treatment plus exercise also reduced plasma levels for parathyroid hormone, a hormone that stimulates bone resorption, the level of which can also be reduced by improved nutritional status of calcium and vitamin D.
In addition to hydroxyapatite, the Bone-Up® formulation also includes Vitamin C, vitamin D3, vitamin K1, MK-7, Folic Acid, Methyl B-12, magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper, boron and potassium citrate, which are all beneficial for optimizing skeletal health and joint function.
Jarrow Rogovin, President of Jarrow Formulas, says that the company intends to conduct further studies.
