  • Taking Metagenics’ Ostera in combination with a Mediterranean-style‚ low-glycemic-load diet and aerobic exercise may benefit bone health‚ especially in women. This supplement features berberine and selective kinase response modulators (SKRMs) derived from hops—reduced iso-alpha acids (RIAA)‚ which work by targeting the metabolic processes related to strong bones. It also provides vitamin K‚ which is key to the metabolism of bone proteins. Finally‚ this all-natural formula contains vitamin D for additional support.

    Berberine is a plant alkaloid that has been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. You can find berberine within the herbs goldenseal (hydrastis Canadensis)‚ coptis or goldenthread (Coptis chinesis)‚ Oregon grape (Berberis aquifolium)‚ barberry (Berberis vulgaris) and tree turmeric (Berberis aristata). It is found in the roots‚ stem‚ bark and rhizomes of these plants. These extracts may help fight mild infections and alleviate diarrhea symptoms.

    Selective Kinase Response Modulators (SKRMs) are enzymes that translate dietary signals that affect your overall health. These modulators can chemically modify other proteins and regulate cellular pathways‚ especially the ones that transmit signals within the cell. Supplementing with SKRMs can boost your wellbeing.

    Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin‚ which means that your body stores excess within fat tissue and the liver. Its’ most well-known function is its role in helping blood clot properly‚ but it also plays a vital role in bone health. Since vitamin K is abundantly found in green leafy vegetables and it can also be produced by bacteria in the gut‚ it is rare for a healthy individual to have a vitamin K deficiency. Prolonged antibiotic use can sometimes lead to a deficiency‚ because those products can destroy the vitamin K-producing bacteria in the gut. Some other health conditions and other medications may also play a role.

    The main role of vitamin D is to help the body maintain normal levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood. Since it also helps the body absorb calcium‚ it is vital to helping form and maintain strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D supplementation is helpful on its own‚ but it can also be taken along with other bone strengthening vitamins and minerals. Vitamin D supplementation can keep your bones from becoming weak and breaking more easily‚ especially as you age.

    Each bottle of Ostera contains 60 tablets.

    seems to have helped osteoporosis

    My chiropractor recommended this supplement and suggested that I take it regularly in addition to my calcium supplements and soy. While not taking the soy so much I have been faithful with the Ostera and calcium. After over two years on this product my DEXA scan showed an improvement in bone density.

    Pros

      Helped osteoporosis

    Cons

      Expensive supplement

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Pros

      just the price of three supplements each month exceeds $100

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
