What? Bone Revolution is a unique blend of mineral-rich sea vegetables, most importantly Aquamin™, a clinically tested form of the red seaweed Lithothamnium corallioides that contains 32% calcium and lots of other skeleton-friendly stuff.
Why? Sea vegetables, especially the red ones, are a major source of natural minerals. This is good news because, when it comes to bone health, calcium seems to work better in combination with other bone- nutrients, all of which work better together.
So what? It's nutritional teamwork. The Real Thing Bone Revolution aims to improve the body’s levels of nutrients involved in healthy bone turnover. It’s not just calcium but a team of power-players that help to minimise or prevent bone loss due to age and nutrient-deficiency. Go team! It may also help to counter the loss for people taking bone-depleting medications like corticosteroids.
WHAT’S IN BONE REVOLUTION?
THE RECOMMENDED BLEND. While taking lifestyle steps such as quitting smoking, exercising more, drinking less alcohol and avoiding bone-damaging meds, Bone Revolution helps take care of these nutrient needs. The rest is up to you.
It’s a plant-derived supplement. Some calcium supplements are isolated elements created in a lab, whilst others are made from crushed chalk, cow bone, limestone or different sorts of rock. The calcium in Bone Revolution is delivered in a natural and organic powdered sea-veg form. So which is better for us, 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 Revolution
(also known as Aquamin™) grows extremely slowly. Really. Very. Slowly. This means it has plenty of time to filter, absorb and “pre-digest” calcium and other minerals from the sea 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, meaning that 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 mg - 600mg a day, sometimes even less – a 2006 study involving South African women found their intake to be as low as 450 mg daily! So, because the average diet delivers up to 850 mg less calcium a day than it should, we’ve designed Bone Revolution to contain 400 mg of elemental calcium (1333 mg calcium salt) per dosage in a unique form to supplement daily intake.
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 therefore better nutritional support.
WHY WE’VE INCLUDED BORON
WHAT’S THE RIGHT DOSE? For bone-related health, boron has been used at a dose of 3 mg per elemental boron day. Exactly what Bone Revolution provides.
It works with calcium. Magnesium is another team-playing mineral in the Bone Revolution blend that’s also been shown to influence calcium metabolism and help bone growth.
WHY WE’VE INCLUDED MAGNESIUM
WHAT’S THE RIGHT DOSE? With local diets supplying as little as 273mg daily, many people are living with a magnesium deficit of over 300mg a day. Fortunately Bone Revolution provides the ideal elemental calcium to magnesium ratio of 2:1. In other words there’s 400 mg of elemental calcium and 213 mg of elemental magnesium per dose. While everyone’s needs are different, Bone Revolution aims to supplement this magnesium deficit as best as possible.
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 is enough? According to the 2010 South African Nutrient Reference Value (SANRV) its 600IU a day for adults from all sources – although a 2006 study involving adult South African woman found the vitamin D dietary intake may be as low as 148 IU per day. Other available sources recommend 800 IU – 1000 IU daily for maintenance. This is why Bone Revolution contains 1000 IU of vitamin D3 per daily dose.
It’s got the good ones. In addition to the bone-specific nutrients listed so far, the Aquamin™ red sea veg in Bone Revolution 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 is predicted that by the year 2050, worldwide hip fractures will increase by 240% in women and 310% in men.

SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER
Do not take Bone Revolution if you...
Speak to your doctor before taking Bone Revolution if you...
If you take more Bone Revolution than you should…
As with any supplement, you shouldn’t take more than the recommended dose of Bone Revolution 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 Revolution 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 Revolution regularly.
If you stop taking Bone Revolution…
The benefits and improvements you’ve seen may slowly start to decline if you discontinue the recommended dose on a regular basis.
