Bone health is vital to our overall wellbeing and it starts with maintaining healthy bone mass and bone density. Modern diets and lifestyles can often adversely affect the health of our bones. For example, scientific research has shown that the consumption of tea, coffee and soft drinks can reduce bone density and lead to osteoporosis in later life. Osteoporosis is a thinning and weakening of the bones and it makes your bones more likely to break.
Since many nutrients are important for bone health, it is important to eat a well-balanced diet containing a variety of foods, including grains, fruits and vegetables, dairy products or other calcium-rich foods, and meat or beans each day. Physical activity is also very important, including weight-bearing and resistance exercises.
HealthReach Bone Broth contains the bone friendly nutrients Vitamins C, D and K. The formulation also includes the highest quality hydrolysed collagen (Peptan). Hydrolysed collagen is a form of collagen, that has been broken down into smaller particles. This process results in a pure powder that is highly bioavailable, meaning that it can be easily absorbed in the body. Peptan bovine collagen is primarily produced from sustainable grass-fed cattle.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, making up about 30% of the entire protein content of the body. Collagen is produced within the body and after the age of 30, the body starts to deplete collagen at a rate of approximately 1.5% every year.
Collagen plays a vital role in providing support and elasticity to connective tissues, such as cartilage, bones, tendons and ligaments.
Healthreach Bone Broth also contains Vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones and cartilage and Vitamins D and K to contribute to the maintenance of normal bones.
HealthReach Bone Broth also contains MSM, an organic sulphur compound found in many plants and animals, glucosamine – a compound found within the cartilage of our joints, and chondroitin – a component of human connective tissues found in cartilage and bone.
