The Real Thing Bone Revolution 1 Tablets
Help prevent bone loss. Help promote bone health. Help your bones be all they can with this organic sea-veg mix combining calcium, magnesium, vitamin D3, boron and over 70 trace minerals.
GET THE SPECS
What? Bone Revolution 1 is a unique blend of mineral-rich sea vegetables, most importantly Aquamin™, a clinically tested form of the red seaweed Lithothamnium corallioides that contains 35% calcium and lots of other skeleton-friendly stuff.
Why? Sea vegetables are a major source of natural minerals. The red ones in particular. This is good news because, when it comes to bone health, calcium seems to work better in combination with other bone-promoting nutrients, all of which work better with one another.
So what? It's nutritional teamwork. The Real Thing Bone Revolution 1 and 2 aim to improve the body’s levels of a whole crew of nutrients involved in healthy bone turnover. Not just calcium. This team of power-players helps to minimise or prevent bone loss due to age and nutrient-deficiency. It may also help to counter loss in people taking bone-reducing medications like corticosteroids. Go team.
HERE’S A TIP: To maximise results, take Bone Rev 1 with The Real Thing Bone Revolution 2 Strontium. But not simultaneously because calcium and strontium compete for the same binding sites and get in one another’s way. And remember to take Bone Rev 1 and 2 as directed for at least six months. You’ll see the difference.
WHAT’S IN BONE REV 1?
THE RECOMMENDED BLEND. The South African National Guideline for preventing osteoporosis says you need to get enough calcium and vitamin D, while taking lifestyle steps such as stopping smoking, exercising more, drinking alcohol less and avoiding bone-damaging meds. The Bone Rev range helps take care of these nutrient needs. The rest is up to you.
1. CALCIUM, A DIFFERENT KIND
It’s a plant-derived wholefood. Some calcium supplements are isolated elements created in a lab. Others are made from crushed chalk, cow bone, limestone or different sorts of rock. But the calcium in Bone Rev 1 is delivered in a natural and organic powdered sea-veg form. Rock or plant? We believe the body prefers the latter.
It’s extra-easy to absorb. The mineral-rich Lithothamnium corrallioides red seaweed in Bone Rev 1 (also known as Aquamin™) grows extremely slowly. Really. Extremely. Slowly. This means it has plenty of time to filter, absorb and “pre-digest” calcium and other minerals from the sea. Extremely. Thoroughly. That’s why the calcium in this supplement is easy for your body to absorb, retain and ultimately use.
It works more than one way. Two recent animal studies published in the Journal of Phytotherapy Research 2011 and in Calcified Tissue International 2010 have shown that Aquamin™ actually increases bone mineralisation. The message? It doesn’t just help to prevent bone loss, but could in fact promote bone formation too.
WHY WE’VE INCLUDED CALCIUM
WHAT’S THE RIGHT DOSE? Although the 2010 South African Nutrient Reference Value (SANRV) and US Institute of Medicine say the recommended adult calcium intake is 1 300mg a day, most modern diets provide less than half that. In western countries the average is 500 to 600mg a day, sometimes even less – a 2006 study involving South African women found their intake to be as low as 450mg daily! So, because the average diet delivers up to 850mg less calcium a day than it should, we’ve designed Bone Rev 1 to contain 800mg in a unique form.
2. FRUITEX-B® BORON
It’s a nature-identical form of boron. Fruitex-B® is a patented mix of minerals and fruit sugars that promote healthy bones. The chemically minded call it calcium fructoborate or CFB, because it combines fruit sugars, calcium and boron all in one. That’s why this compound looks (and works) just like the CFB found naturally in fruits, nuts and legumes. It’s only natural.
It’s a booster for other bone nutrients. Studies show that boron can help keep bones strong by activating vitamin D, which in turn promotes calcium absorption. Nice. Clearly better levels of one lead to better levels of the others and better nutritional support.
It’s pure and organic. Fruitex-B® is produced by FutureCeuticals, an innovative biotech company in Europe and the US. State-of-the-art facilities and safety standards mean this boron is reliably potent and pure. The processing plants have also been certified organic by both the California government and independent observers. As we like it.
WHY WE’VE INCLUDED BORON
WHAT’S THE RIGHT DOSE? For bone-related health, boron has been used at a dose of 3mg per day. Exactly what Bone Rev 1 provides.
It works with calcium. Magnesium is another team-playing mineral in the Bone Rev 1 blend that’s been shown to influence calcium metabolism and help bone grow too.
WHY WE’VE INCLUDED MAGNESIUM
WHAT’S THE RIGHT DOSE? The 2010 South African Nutrient Reference Value (SANRV) for magnesium is 420mg a day. But for optimal bone health it should be closer to 600mg per day. With local diets supplying as little as 273mg daily, many people are living with a magnesium deficit of over 300mg a day. Fortunately Bone Rev 1 supplies all this and more. Even more fortunately, it does so in the body’s ideal calcium to magnesium ratio of 2:1. In other words there’s 800mg of calcium and 400mg magnesium per dose. In perfect proportion for you.
4. VITAMIN D3
It’s the recommended kind. Of the different kinds of vitamin D, the International Osteoporosis Foundation recommends using vitamin D3, the natural form.
WHY WE’VE INCLUDED VITAMIN D3
WHAT’S THE RIGHT DOSE? It’s hard to get enough vitamin D from your diet or from the sun. What’s enough? According to the 2010 South African Nutrient Reference Value (SANRV) it’s 600 IU a day for adults from all sources – although a 2006 study involving adult South African women found the vitamin D dietary intake may be as low as 148 IU per day. Which is why Bone Rev 1 contains 480 IU of vitamin D3 per daily dose.
5. PLUS, MORE THAN 70 TRACE MINERALS
It’s got the good ones. In addition to the bone-specific nutrients listed so far, the Aquamin™ red sea veg in Bone Rev 1 provides more than 70 trace minerals – including iron, manganese and copper, which play supportive skeletal roles.
FACT: Statistics show that 50% of all women and up to 25% of men over age 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis. It’s also predicted that by the year 2050, worldwide hip fractures will increase by240% in women and 310% in men.

SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER
Do not take Bone Revolution 1 if you...
Speak to your doctor before taking Bone Rev 1 if you...
If you take more Bone Rev 1 than you should…
Simply stop taking it and restart at the recommended dose after one week. And that’s that. As with any supplement, you shouldn’t take more than the recommended dose of Bone Rev 1 at any time. But if you do, or accidental overdose occurs, call your doctor or pharmacist. If neither is available contact your nearest hospital or poison control centre.
Chronic vitamin D overdose can lead to too much calcium and phosphate in the body, excess urea and other nitrogenous waste in the blood and low iron, or anemia. Excess calcium can lead to numerous effects including fatigue, headache, loss of appetite, constipation, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal cramps.
If you forget to take Bone Rev 1 for a day or more…
It’s no problem. Just start again at the regular daily dose. In other words, don’t take double doses to make up for the days you forgot. And remember: you may not see optimal benefits if you don’t take Bone Rev 1regularly.
If you stop taking Bone Rev 1…
The benefits and improvements you’ve seen may slowly start to decline if you discontinue the recommended dose on a regular basis.
