Advanced Bone Protection is Milk Basic Protein (MBP™), a specific whey protein fraction found in trace amounts in bovine milk. MBP is considered to be so safe and vital that some food items are fortified with it in Japan, where it was discovered.
MBP has been shown to increase the activity of bone-building cells (osteoblasts) while reducing the activity of the cells that break down bone (osteoclasts), resulting in a more balanced and effective approach to preventing the bone loss that leads to osteopenia and osteoporosis. It also helps bones to retain and use calcium more effectively, and to produce more collagen, an important part of the bone matrix.
Advanced Bone Protection is not a source of calcium, but rather a beneficial addition to any calcium-based bone health regimen for those at risk of developing, or already suffering from, osteoporosis. It can also be used to support bone healing after sustaining a fracture. The daily therapeutic dose of Advanced Bone Protection fits into just one small capsule, which can be taken at any time of day, with or without food or other supplements.
The mechanism that makes AOR’s Advanced Bone Protection unique in its action is that it acts like Velcro, picking up calcium ions which “stick” to the bone, which is where they are needed. In doing so it also prevents the deposition of calcium in other tissues such as the arteries and kidney.
