Oscap™ by Thorne Research is a comprehensive bone-support formula that can
help improve your overall bone health.
Who Should be Concerned About Bone Health?
Many factors can have a negative effect on your overall bone health. In fact,
you are at greater risk of weakened bones just from being female. In fact, as
much as 50 percent of women over 65 in the United States should be concerned
about maintaining their bone health. As women age, they are much more likely to
lose more bone mass at a faster rate than their bodies can keep up with.
When you go through menopause or have a hysterectomy, your chances of
diminished bone health are increased even further. Actually, some bone loss
during menopausal years is inevitable, but the more bone a woman has accumulated
early in life, the less this bone loss will impact her overall health during
menopause. This is why women who are in the age range of 18 to 35 should make an
effort to promote bone health. Things like physical inactivity, eating
disorders, low body weight and poor nutrition during this time can lead to bone
loss issues later in life.
BBut, you don’t have to be a woman to worry about bone health. If you live a
sedentary lifestyle, smoke or consume too much alcohol, sugar or caffeine, you
might be at risk for weakened bones. Caucasians, Asians and those who are
small-boned are also at risk for developing unhealthy bones. If you are on
steroids or anticonvulsants for a prolonged period of time, you may want to add
a bone-supporting supplement, such as Oscap by Thorne Research, to your daily
How Thorne Research’s Oscap can Help
It is important to note that maintaining bone health involves more than just
supplementing with calcium. That is why Thorne Research formulated its Oscap
supplement to include various vitamins and minerals that are known to promote
bone density. The calcium you’ll find in Oscap is bound to citrate malate, which
is one of the best-absorbed types of dietary calcium that is available today.
Studies have shown that supplementing with calcium (bound to citrate-malate)
in doses as low as 500 milligrams per day can significantly support overall bone
health. Magnesium is also beneficial to promoting bone density because it
regulates the secretion parathyroid hormones and helps active calcium find its
way to the bone.
In addition to calcium and magnesium, Oscap also provides the essential
vitamin D3, which helps the body absorb calcium; vanadium, which promotes bone
mineral density; and boron, which helps the body metabolize estrogen and vitamin
Oscap also contains methylcobalamin (an active form of B12, folinic acid and
L-5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate (active forms of folic acid), and pyridoxal
5’-phosphate (active vitamin B6) because they help the body maintain already
normal homocysteine levels. Studies have shown that elevated levels of
homocysteine can interfere with the integrity of the bone matrix.
Horsetail (equisetum arvense) has also been added to the formula because it
is a great source of silica. Silica is an element that is commonly found in high
concentrations within healthy bone structure.
In order to provide as bone health supplement that is suitable for those
taking blood thinners, Oscap does not contain vitamin K.
