Calzbone® Extract Supports Women’s Bone Density in Clinical Trial
January 31st 2012 - Verdure Sciences, Noblesville, IN - A clinical trial now published revealed daily dosing of Calzbone® Extract significantly improved bone density (BMD) in women.
Data from the 26-week clinical study on 40 middle-aged, healthy women aged 45-55 showed that 250mg of Calzbone® Extract thrice daily led to significant improvement in bone density of 18% (p<0.01) from baseline, a significant lowering of T-score and Z-score (p<0.01) as well as a decrease of serum alkaline phosphatase and serum tartrate resistant acid phosphatase (p<0.001). These findings together suggest strong potential for the use of Calzbone® to support bone strength and healthy bone density.
In the peer-reviewed publication in The Antiseptic, the authors also remarked that Calzbone® was well-tolerated and also clinically improved signs of joint swelling, pain and stiffness present in some subjects with co-existing osteoarthritis.
“The effects of Calzbone® on joint function and bone density is a somewhat unique finding in this trial,” said Blake Ebersole, Technical Director of Verdure Sciences. “A single ingredient supporting both bone and joint health together, such as evidenced by Calzbone® here, could significantly impact the health of a large population of women.”
This study comes on the heels of multiple clinical trials using Calzbone®, including a study showing a significant decrease in fracture healing time. In a separate clinical trial, daily dosing of Unibone™ featuring Calzbone® in women led to an increase in bone density.
Calzbone® Extract is a clinically researched botanical ingredient supporting bone health and bone mineral density. Calzbone® contains a proprietary natural spectrum of key plant-based forms of phytohormones, phytosterols, calcium and Vitamin D. Calzbone® is 100% natural and derived from Cissus quadrangularis, a climbing vine also known as the "Bone Setter" in India where it has remained an integral part of Ayurveda through modern times. Unibone™ and Femnia™ are clinically researched, all-natural formulas containing Calzbone® within proprietary formulas.
