This new and improved formula no longer requires 6 tablets daily to deliver all the bone supportive nutrients found in the original formula. Now 4 tablets daily supplies all the necessary vitamins and minerals in their most absorbable forms. This formula is now more suitable to take along with Designs for Health's Twice Daily Multi. The minerals chosen for this formula are from Albion Advanced Nutrition, the leader in formulating truly chelated minerals with outstanding absorption. The calcium and magnesium are supplied in an ideal 2:1 ratio. A higher intake of calcium than that supplied in OsteoForce is not necessary due to the far greater absorption of calcium bis-glycinate chelate in comparison to other non-chelated calcium salts typically supplied by other manufacturers.
OsteoForce and Twice Daily Multi now make a perfect match if taken together with little overlap. Other supportive products include PaleoGreens and Probiotic Supreme.
Unique features of Osteoforce: Calcium Contains the powerful bone supportive advantages of calcium in several of its best forms. This combination of calcium types allows superior bioavailability over just one type. Magnesium Contains the best absorbed form of magnesium. Magnesium is an important bone supportive mineral and must be present along with Vitamin D for optimal calcium uptake by the bones. Vitamin D Without vitamin D, calcium cannot be absorbed and used for growth. Cholecalciferol is the most absorbable form of Vitamin D. Vitamin K Vitamin K is necessary for healthy bone support. Zinc & Copper are essential minerals for healthy bones. Boron is an important trace mineral for bone health.

I love this vitamin because it has all the nutrients I want and only requires me to take 4 tablets a day. Some vitamins require a person to take up to 6 or 8 tablets a day. That's hard when you are busy and on the go all the time.
