If you are one of the millions of women and men looking to slow normal bone loss that comes with aging, Garden of Life has great news for you. Get ready to experience the Grow Bone System with RAW Calcium and Growth Factor S. The Grow Bone System is intended to stimulate bone growth, increase bone strength and bone mineral density, and has been clinically demonstrated to do so by human clinical studies. Now that's great news!
2. Why is bone health important?
A: Healthy bones manufacture
red blood cells, immune cells, secrete hormones and
much more. Bone loss is associated with increased
inflammation, which then accelerates more bone loss and becomes a vicious cycle. There is an Osteo-
Immune relationship, as well as a link between bone loss and obesity. Because bone loss is often the
first sign of degenerating bone health (often in the form of a fracture due to weak bone) we consider good
bone health to be one of the most overlooked components of extraordinary health - everyone needs to think
about their bone health.
3. What can I do to improve my bone health?
A: It is never too late, or too early to improve bone health. Building strong bones when you are young is the
best defense against getting losing bone density later on in life. The best way to do this is to get adequate
amounts of calcium and vitamins D3 in your diet. We recommend getting as much calcium from foods as
possible, and taking a whole food calcium supplement with the proper bone-building ingredients included.
Regular exercise is also crucial to bone health.
4. Why should I question if my calcium supplement is effective?
A: Calcium supplements taken in the absence of other vitamins and minerals and without proper diet and
exercise, have not been proven in clinical studies to help strengthen bones. The best that can be said is
that calcium supplementation helps slow down or stop bone loss. While slowing bone loss is good,
increasing bone mineral density should be the goal. The majority of calcium supplements are made from
ground-up rock and most of them are in tablet form and have solubility problems. The USA is the country
that purchases the most calcium supplements, but it is also one of the countries with higher incidence of bone loss.
5. What is VITAMIN CODE Grow Bone System?
A: Garden of Life is proud to introduce the VITAMIN CODE Grow Bone System, a combination of Vitamin
Code RAW Calcium and Growth Factor S, two comprehensive bone-building formulas clinically studied to
Stimulate Bone Growth, Increase Bone Strength, and Increase Bone Mineral
Density. The Grow Bone System contains the first raw, vegan, organic whole food plant source of Calcium
with naturally occurring bone-building Code-Factors, such as vitamin D3, vitamin K2, magnesium, boron,
strontium, silica and vanadium.**
6. Why did Garden of Life formulate the Grow Bone System?
A: The U.S. Surgeon General issued a report on Bone Health in 2004, in which Dr. Carmona warned that by
the year 2020, half of all American citizens older than 50 will be at risk for fractures from osteoporosis and
low bone mass if no immediate action is taken. Garden of Life designed the Grow Bone System as a
response to the U.S. Surgeon Generals "call to action" to the nutritional and health care industry for the
development of bone-health programs that incorporate the three basic components of an effective program:
- Improved Nutrition
- Increased Physical Activity
- Improved Health Literacy
7. What does the VITAMIN CODE Grow Bone System include?
A: The Grow Bone System is a kit composed of a bottle of RAW Calcium 150ct, a bottle of Growth Factor
S (strontium) 90ct, in addition to the Grow Bone Booklet describing the Bone Health Program.
8. What is the Grow Bone System Health Program?
A: We recommend that you use the Grow Bone System as part of a holistic bone health program as follows:
- 1. Eat a healthy diet including good sources of calcium, vitamins D and K, and other minerals.
- 2. Use the Grow Bone System consistently for 6 consecutive months according to suggested use.
- 3. Exercise regularly with your doctors approval.
9. What kind of Exercise is recommended in the Grow Bone System Health Program?
A: Regardless of age, exercise and physical activity are an important part of building and maintaining
strong, healthy bones. A good all-around program that incorporates weight-bearing, strength and balance
training exercises is most desirable. Weight-bearing and strength exercises are very useful for increasing or
maintaining bone mass, while balance training may help with coordination and maintaining muscle mass
which can help prevent falls and resulting bone fractures. Always check with your doctor before starting any
new exercise regime.
11. What is VITAMIN CODE RAW Calcium?
A: VITAMIN CODE RAW Calcium is the first raw, vegan calcium formula, composed of AlgaeCal RAW, a
certified organic plant source of calcium derived from the marine algae Algas calcareas rich in 73 naturally
occurring minerals and trace minerals. The RAW Calcium formula provides all the necessary co-factors
such as 100mcg of Vitamin K2 in the form of MK-7, 1,600 IU of RAW Food-Created vitamin D3 and other
bone-building Code Factors, magnesium, boron, silica and vanadium. RAW Calcium is completely free of
commonly-used limestone rock, chalk or animal bone sources of calcium and is suitable for even the most
dedicated raw food vegan. RAW Calcium May Increase Bone Strength,
Increase Bone Mineral Density and Slow Bone Loss.
12. What is AlgaeCal RAW?
A: AlgaeCal RAW is the first raw, vegan, certified organic whole food plant source of Calcium. As opposed
to single element calcium supplements, AlgaeCal RAW is powdered Marine Algae (Algas calcareas)
containing an entire spectrum of plant nutrients, large quantities of Calcium and Mag
