GTF are require for bone : Calcium Alone is not Enough for Healthy Bones

Silica (from horsetail and/or shavegrass) works with calcium to maintain strong bones and is especially effective in combination with GTF. GTF Chromium (which stands for Glucose Tolerance Factor Chromium) is made by fermenting nutritional yeast with chromium.

As you know, Chromium is a constituent ingredient of what is called the Glucose Tolerance Factor. It works closely with insulin to facilitate the uptake of glucose into cells. In individuals with impaired glucose tolerance, such as those with diabetes, hypoglycemia, and obesity, supplementation with chromium is of paramount importance. Without chromium, blood sugar levels stay elevated because the action of insulin is blocked so that glucose is not transported into the cells.

In addition:

* Serotonin has been shown in recent studies to be an important factor for bone density. L-tryptophan is a good supplement to boost serotonin.

* Inositol/IP6 modulates the behavior of bone-forming and bone-destroying cells.

* Besides being an excellent pathogen destroyer, Colloidal Silver also helps bone, tissue and nerve regeneration.

* Dandelion Tea and Red Clover help build bone density. Other herbs that can help build your bones include Chaste Berry, Dong Quai, Black Cohosh and Sesame seeds.

Diet and exercise are also vital for bone health. A poor diet lacking essential vitamins and minerals contributes to osteoporosis. Regular exercise helps maintain healthy bones; whereas, lack of exercise will result in weak bones and loss of bone mass.

Do not take bone drugs for osteoporosis. Evidence has shown that they produce abnormal bone growth, make bones more brittle and can have serious and even life threatening side effects! See:
