Mind your Gaps: H2PRO™ has Vitamins!


Are you worried about the gaps? You know, your nutritional gaps. Things you might not get enough of in your already well-rounded diet?

A supplement like H2PRO™ can help fill the gaps you are most concerned about by providing vitamins and probiotics to support a healthy body. H2PRO™ Bone and Joint Health is specifically formulated to support healthy bones throughout your life with probiotics AND vitamins!

Probiotics have been shown support bone health. You can read more about this in an earlier H2PRO™ post. But the vitamins and micronutrients in our formula: calcium, vitamin D, magnesium and glucosamine and chondroitin are there to support bone and joint health as well.

Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis: #LoveYourBones to prevent Osteoporosis

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in western cultures [1].  Osteoarthritis most frequently affects the knees causing pain and movement limitations that impinge on social life and independence for mature adults [1].

Osteoporosis is a condition of low bone density that results in fractures with little or no trauma to the bone.  In the U.S. low bone mass is a threat to 40 million people, mostly post-menopausal women and in Europe 30 million women will have osteoporosis by 2050 [2].  This condition can result in frequent fractures, increasing medical costs and compromised independence.

The great news about osteoporosis is that it is preventable before fractures occur with good nutrition and weight bearing exercise[3].

Calcium and Vitamin D

Two of the top recommendations for prevention of osteoporosis are an adequate intake of calcium (up to 1200 mg/day for women 51+ and men 71+) and vitamin D (800-1000 IU per day).  Calcium and vitamin D have been shown to increase bone mineral density and reduce bone loss in both men and women over 65  and to decrease non-vertebral fractures [4].

We’ve got that! H2PRO™ Bone & Joint Health provides 100 mg of calcium and 1000 IU of vitamin D in each packet.

Magnesium

Magnesium is an important nutrient for bone health.  In fact, 60% of your body’s magnesium is in the bones [2].  Deficiency can result in compromised bone health.  Magnesium is used in the body for many things including the production of cellular energy, the creation of enzyme cofactors and cell membranes.  When the body needs magnesium for these other functions it will take it from the bones [2]. A Magnesium supplement gives peace of mind, but must be combined with a diet rich in micronutrients, including  green vegetables, nuts, seeds and legumes [2].

We’ve got that! H2PRO™ Bone and Joint Health provides 40 mg of Magnesium per packet.

H2Pro

Glucosamine and Chondroitin

H2PRO™ Bone and Joint Health also contains glucosamine and chondroitin to support joint health.  These supplements have been shown to be as effective as some medications for patients with arthritis related joint pain [1,5].  Studies have shown that glucosamine and chondroitin support joint health, flexibility, decreasing pain and stiffness with increasing results over time up to 6 months [1].

We’ve got that ! H2PRO™ Bone and Joint Health provides 400 mg of both glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate.
