What is bone matrix 2.0 and who can benefit from taking it?
If you are looking to enhance your recovery from a recent bone fracture, prevent bone degeneration or offset the calcium reducing side effects of steroid medication then this formulation may be for you.
Why bone matrix 2.0 is different to other bone formulations
Unlike most other bone formulations available on the market bone matrix 2.0 from poliquin provides an amazing spectrum of nutrients to assist with bone health and repair. Along with other bone specific nutrients and natural compounds this formulation includes the use of a specific type of calcium known as microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (mchc). Mchc has been shown to be more effective than standard types of calcium in supporting bone health because it is a whole bone extract and may be a preferable form to use to prevent cardiovascular and digestive health side effects seen with other calcium supplements. Mchc also contains growth factors and type I & ii collagen found in the whole bone which has been shown to support bone density and connective tissue recovery.
How to use bone matrix 2.0We recommend around 4-8 capsules taken daily depending on your body weight, typically with females on 4-6 per day and males on 6-8 per day. We also recommend this supplement to be taken alongside other supplements and a well-planned diet to maximize support of bone regeneration. Additional supplements may include:
Vitamin D3 & K2
Unless you are currently recovering from one or multiple fractures, taking a medication that may impact bone health/calcium levels such as ongoing corticosteroid use or have known low bone mineral density (osteoporosis or osteopenia) bone support formulations and specifically calcium supplementation is typically not needed.
In some cases certain nutrient insufficiencies may develop leaving your bones at risk of increased degeneration. However it should be noted that in the case of low blood levels of calcium, the cause is rarely due to low calcium intake and in fact may be caused by a hormonal imbalance that requires further investigation from a professional.
