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?

  1. Calcium, a different kind
  2. Fruitex-B® boron
  3. Magnesium
  4. Vitamin D3
  5. More than 70 trace minerals

 


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

  • Calcium is essential for normal bone structure and function.
  • It’s one of the main bone-forming minerals. In fact 99% of the body’s calcium is found in the skeleton.
  • Because it’s lost through sweat, skin cells and waste, the body’s calcium concentration tends to decline with time. This is particularly pronounced in women. Why? Because as age goes up and oestrogen levels go down, calcium absorption tends to fall too.

 


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

  • It makes more vitamin D available and specifically improves levels of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (or vitamin D3), which improves the bone-nourishing effect.
  • Boron also enhances calcium, magnesium and oestrogen levels, all of which play important roles in maintaining bone health.


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.

 

3. MAGNESIUM

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

  • A proper magnesium intake can help improve bone mass density. What’s a proper intake? Well, when it comes to bone health, 400 to 600mg of magnesium is recommended a day.
  • Magnesium also helps make higher-quality bone. How? By preventing the formation of larger hydroxyapatite crystal, which can lead to brittle bone.  


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

  • It’s essential for normal bone structure and function.
  • It helps the bone mineralisation process and increases the intestinal absorption of bone nutrients like calcium and phosphorous.
  • Vitamin D insufficiency is a worldwide problem. Fact. This vitamin is supplied by certain foods and exposure to the sun. Therefore, the broadscale lack of vitamin D3 is due to a combination of low intake, impaired intestinal absorption and too little sunshine time due to habitat, age, skin colour and increased sunblock use (a good thing except when it comes to D3 supply and demand).


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.

 

WHY DO YOU NEED BONE REVOLUTION?

  • Bones firm up and fill up with minerals while you’re growing. But only into the 20s. Then things start to reverse.

  • From age 35 bone is gradually weakened, demineralised and lost – even more so in women after menopause.

  • But it’s not just age, research shows that diet, exercise, environment, genetics, smoking, certain medications and exposure to sunlight (or the lack thereof, which leads to too little vitamin D) can all influence bone weakness or strength.

  • That’s where nutrient therapy comes in. It’s been shown to be central to the maintenance of optimal bone health – especially with bone-related nutrients like calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, phosphorous, fluoride, manganese, zinc, boron, copper and vitamin K.

  • Bone Rev 1 helps improve levels of nutrients involved in healthy bone turnover. Simple. So it can help to prevent or minimise bone loss– due to age, bone-reducing meds like corticosteroids, or low bone-nutrient intake (as in lactose intolerance or life in dark, sunless parts of the world).



WHAT MAKES BONE REV 1 THE REAL THING?

  • What we put in it. Just a pure, powdered sea-veg blend featuring the clinically tested, mineral-rich red seaweed Aquamin™ and some Fruitex-B® boron for good measure too.
  • What we don’t put in it. No colourants, flavourants or preservatives of any kind.
  • How it’s grown. The Lithothamnium corallioides red seaweed naturally absorbs minerals as it grows over five years. It then settles into a hard, calcified state on the seabed, and that’s when it’s harvested, washed, dried and powdered into a supplement-friendly form. Because the mature mineralised plant is used, and the living, young ones are left to grow, the process is environmentally friendly and totally sustainable.
  • How it’s made. Bone Rev 1 is produced in ISO and HACCP approved facilities. It contains organic Aquamin™ and Fruitex-B® and is certified non-GMO, Kosher and Halaal.

 

 

HOW DO YOU TAKE IT?

REMEMBER TO READ THE FULL LABEL AND/OR INFORMATION LEAFLET BEFORE USE.

  • Adults who are not used to taking calcium supplements should start with 1 tablet twice a day for one week, then increase slowly to 2 tablets twice daily. Take tablets with non-fibrous foods, and at least two hours before or four to six hours after other supplements or medication.
  • NOTE: For optimal bone health, it’s advised to 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. Therefore take Bone Rev 1 and 2 at least four to six hours apart. And continue taking both as directed for at least six months.
  • Do not take more than the recommended dose, unless under direct supervision of your doctor. Also, avoid taking more than 1 300mg calcium per day – and consider all sources, namely dietary and supplementation (count around 300mg calcium per day from non-dairy foods and 300mg a day per cup of milk).
  • If you have a medical condition, check with your doctor before using any supplement. Supplementation should not replace a healthy, balanced and varied diet. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking any supplement.

 

 

SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER

Do not take Bone Revolution 1 if you... 

  • Are allergic or hypersensitive to any of the ingredients
  • Have hypercalcemia (abnormally high levels of circulating calcium in the blood)
  • Have the autoimmune condition systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), heart block, severe kidney disease or toxaemia

 

Speak to your doctor before taking Bone Rev 1 if you...  

  • Have a medical condition
  • Are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • Have decreased kidney function
  • Have heart disease
  • Have arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)

 

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.

 

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?

  • Bone Rev 1 should be well-tolerated at recommended doses, but some minor side effects such as belching or gas, nausea, vomiting and constipation or diarrhoea may occur.
  • With long-term use, it's advised that you have your doctor check your phosphate and hormone levels.
  • Not all side-effects reported for this supplement are included in the leaflet or on this website. Should your general health get worse while taking this supplement, please consult your doctor, pharmacist or other health care professional for advice.
