Bone mineral density (BMD) is a major determinant of bone mass and is the most commonly measured quality of bone. A number of factors contribute to bone mineral density including lifestyle factors (regular physical activity, not smoking, minimizing stress levels) and maintaining hormonal balance. Consuming a healthy diet and ensuring optimal levels of bone-building vitamins and minerals are a key therapeutic consideration for preserving bone strength.
BMD is determined by a lifelong process called bone remodeling. Bone remodeling occurs when bone tissue is removed from the skeleton (bone resorption) and new bone tissue is formed. Osteoclasts are cells involved with breaking down bone, while osteoblasts create a protein matrix primarily of collagen, resulting in the remineralization of bone and thereby promoting bone formation. While calcium is an effective starting point for promoting bone health, other nutrients are required for bone mineralization. Nutrients such as strontium, magnesium, vitamin D, K and C, B complex vitamins, and trace minerals significantly enhance bone remodeling and increase bone strength. Pro Bono® provides a comprehensive approach to bone health by offering a full spectrum of nutrients that are required in the bone mineralization process. Pro Bono® also contains nutrients that help maintain an optimal osteoclast to osteoblast ratio.
