Calcium Source of New Chapter Bone Strength:
Many people think that all calcium supplements are created equal. The truth is that the most common form of calcium supplement today is derived from limestone or rock. We don’t eat rocks as part of our balanced diet, so why would we choose to supplement our bone health nutritional needs with limestone.
Our bodies understand and seek whole food sources of nutrition. That’s why New Chapter formulated Bone Strength Take Care with a whole-food plant source of calcium, magnesium, and other important trace minerals.
The calcium complex in Bone Strength Take Care is derived from a specific plant form called Lithothamnion Calcareum, sustainably harvested from pristine shores along the Icelandic coastline. Much like organic vegetables, this sea plant is allowed to mature naturally and then sustainably harvested to deliver its optimal nutritional value.
Calcium must be completely dissolved in order to be absorbed. The plant-based calcium found in Bone Strength Take Care grows in a honeycomb structure and is extremely porous, which dramatically increases the calcium’s surface area. Stomach acid can then come into greater contact with the calcium, making it easy to dissolve. Calcium carbonate sourced from limestone has a much smaller, rocky surface area and is more difficult to dissolve.
Calcium Supplementation May Affect Heart Health:
According to the National Institutes of Health, many people don’t get enough calcium from their diet, suggesting supplementation as an alternative to meet their daily required intake. Despite this dietary deficit, emerging research suggests that isolated calcium supplementation can increase cardiovascular risk.
Calcium supplementation alone is risky because calcium requires other nutrients to be properly utilized. The “calcium paradox” holds that without adequate Vitamin K, calcium will not be deposited in the bones where it is required for maintaining bone strength, but rather in the arteries and soft tissues where it can cause stiffening. It is therefore crucial that an effective bone health supplement be formulated with the necessary nutrients and minerals to ensure the optimal utilization of calcium.

“Best Calcium Supplement”
I was diagnosed with osteopenia 1 year ago and was really worried. I researched many different products and found this one to have ALL the ingredients recommended for women in my condition. I took five a day and watched what I ate and I was recently tested and have stabilized. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
“Incredible…so thankful…so HEALTHY and STRONG”
After 6 stress fractures, two broken arms, a fractured cheek bone…at age 33 I was told I had Osteopenia with a score of -1.8. The doctor could not believe the results so immediately re-tested getting a score of -2.1. He felt I was too young for prescription meds and recommended New Chapter Bone Strength. I was to be re-tested in two years, but due to a couple of moves, it was three years before my next scan. During those three years, I took Bone Strength religiously (but was only taking 2 daily because I misread the package). Apparently, that didn’t make a difference.
At Christmas, I had a new bone dex scan…results…-0.5…normal…normal…normal!!!! For the first time in 10-years, I started running again…with no stress fractures.
I am so thankful for this product…so grateful that my MD suggested this herbal/natural course for me.
Really and truly…this has changed my life. I will take this product faithfully.
This is the best supplement out there for Calcium/Mag. It absorbs well, I take it in the evening and it helps me to sleep very well.
“Thank God for Bone Strength”
I suffered with cervical pain for over a year, and did two courses of physical therapy with minimal relief. After consulting with a spine doctor who said I needed spinal injections, I decided to try Bone Strength on the recommendation of a colleague. After one month of use, my neck pain has decreased substantially. It appears to be working!
The bone strength tablets are helping me fight osteoperosis. I’m in my 50s and it’s been a life long battle. I’ve broken bones in the past and now my doc says they’re brittle and I’m at high risk for serious damage. I started taking these a year ago after my check up and when I went in a couple weeks ago the doctor told me he could see the changes as a result. He said my bones look to be stronger and I know I feel stronger so they’re working as anticipated.
I have a lot of joint pain too. This doesn’t really help with that but glucosimine has done a lot for me in that department- NOW Foods Glucosamine & MSM (60 Capsules) + FREE Cissus Joint Powder 100 Grams. Keeps me feeling more nimble. The cissus helps existing pain and the glucosimine reduces the potential for new problems to arise. Getting old is tough but if you take care of yourself and use natural supplements you can minimize your mobility problems.
“Good plant-based calcium supplement”
I credit this supplement for helping me heal from a very bad wrist fracture. I was taking the usual limestone-based supplements and the fracture was not healing. Within 30 days of switching to this product, my fracture healed. Coincidence? Maybe. But then, maybe not….
“Bone Strength Take Care strengthens bones including jaw bone”
I started using this product because it was recommended by the clerk at Whole Foods who said it was easily absorbed by the body since it was from vegetarian sources. After using it for at least a year, I had a bone density test that showed I had gained bone from the last test. I was not expecting that to happen at my age (mid-60′s). Then, several months later, my very respected dentist, said, “well, you are not supposed to be able to gain bone in your jaw, but you have done so.” I was astounded. I have taken supplements including calcium combined with magnesium since I was 24, and I have held off osteoporosis although I am small-boned, blue-eyed Caucasian woman, all this time to the surprise of my doctors. I wanted to share this information with other women who may have an even greater need for a calcium product that really works that is NOT a medicine to be prescribed by a doctor.
This product has helped my bones and nails to become strong. Since I’ve taken them, I’ve fallen several times, and there has been no breakage of any bone in my body. (The falling has nothing to do with the product.)The soy in them is fermented, so it’s different from soy that is not. I recommend this product highly.
“Headaches have disappeared”
While I’ve never been diagnosed with osteoporosis, I was experiencing unusual and debilitating headaches before finding this product. I believe the headaches were blood pressure related. (I’ve often heard that high blood pressure can result from a lack of quality calcium intake.)I’ve been taking this supplement for about 3 months now and I’m happy to report that I’ve had no headaches during this period.
I’m also quite pleased to know it’s a food based product free of gmo.
An unexpected bonus is that it (along with portion control and regular exercise) seems to be enhancing my weight loss efforts. I couldn’t be more pleased with Bone Strength.
I started ordering this product when I realized that my calcium intake was going to be severely reduced while nursing my son since he was having a strong reaction when I ate dairy. Before taking this, my nails were very brittle which has never been the case my entire life and my knees were beginning to ache so I knew I was deficient in calcium at that point….I am on my second bottle (so have been taking for about a month and a half) and my nails are finally back to normal and my knees are no longer aching when I bend down holding my 5 month old! I did however increase from the suggested use of 3 per day to 4 per day since I am not currently eating dairy in my daily diet. I would strongly recommend this product!
Two years ago, a heel ultrasound showed I had osteopenia. I am 67 now. I started this supplement approx. Jan. 2011, at the prescribed dose. I just had another heel ultrasound done about a month ago, and I’m now high normal at .9. It’s due entirely to this terrific product.
Note: Osteopenia is a condition where bone mineral density is lower than normal. However, not every person diagnosed with osteopenia will develop osteoporosis. source: en.wikipedia.org
My grandmother had her thyroid and one of her parathyroids removed. For 4 months she has been in and out of the hospital because they could not get her calcium regulated. It would be too high one week, then would plummet the next. I changed her limescale calcium supplements to the Bone Strength Take Care. Her body is processing these supplements so much better than the rock that is in the standard drug store supplements. There was an immediate difference in they way she felt and she has energy again. She is almost back to her old self!
“Didn’t work for me!”
I was told two years ago that I had osteopenia, and that I should start taking Fosomax. I read too many negative things about this prescription, and was actually scared to start taking it. All the calcium products upset my stomach. I’ve tried them all in every way, shape and form with no luck. So, I started taking New Chapter Bone Strength, ate more dairy, started lifting weights, and took Vitamin D. Just had a bone density done, and my score is worse than it was two years ago! I really was hoping this would work, but it didn’t! I took it religiously for two years, despite the cost. I am very disappointed, and am now left wondering “What next?” Dr is again recommending the prescription as I now officially have osteoporsis. SO BUMMED!!!!!
