  • 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.

    Excellent product!

    I've been using Ostera by Metagenics for osteoporosis on the advice of my osteopath. It's been a part of my nutrition regimen for about 2 years and I've got great results with it. I opted not to take traditional medications to reverse my bone loss but rather to treat it naturally. My last bone density scan showed a slight increase in density so I'm sticking with the Ostera along with my other supplements and eating plan.


    Pros

      Easy to swallow pills. No after-taste. Reputable manufacturer.

    Cons

      Cost is high but worth it.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    This Has Been A Miracle For Me

    My bone density tests showed osteoporosis of my spine in my early 50s and osteopenia in my hips. I took the conventional treatments with little improvement but significant side effects. I went to an MD who had a holistic practice and he was willing to recommend Ostera for six months. He said if it did not show improvement in that time he would recommend switching back to conventional medications. At the end of the six months my bone density improved roughly 7% across the board. The scans were taken on the same machine in the same lab at our local hospital and read by the same radiologist. Everyone was amazed by the results and I was very pleased: no more bisphosphonates! I took the Ostera with Metagenics calcium magnesium and Vit D in the doses he recommended and made sure to take a brisk walk daily. I wont have a repeat scan for another year but am hopeful for further improvement. My outlook on life has changed dramatically - from expecting to be disabled by osteoporosis and the side effects of the conventional treatments at a relatively young age to hope for a normal life.


    Pros

      Easy to use No side effects Results

    Cons
