Prime Fifty Bone Strength Formula has been specifically created for the needs of the over 50’s, as part of a nutritional range to help you stay active. Maintaining healthy bones, ligaments and tendons is vital for movement and this unique formula includes a variety of nutritional ingredients to help keep your bones in prime condition.

Calcium
Calcium is the most abundant mineral found in the body and virtually all of it is found in bones and teeth. It is the mineral in combination with phosphorus and other key minerals that give bone their mechanical strength, together with collagen.

Most people should be able to get enough calcium form their diet but this is not always the case. Also, calcium absorption can be reduced in the ageing gut. In addition, bones lose their density and strength with age, especially in post-menopausal women and it is therefore essential to ensure that we are getting enough calcium. Failure to do this can lead to further bones loss and possible fractures.

Prime Fifty therefore has added calcium to the formula. It is scientifically proven that calcium contributes to the maintenance of bone strength and this is enhanced in the presence of Vitamin D.

Vitamin D
The vast majority of people, especially over 50’s, are deficient in Vitamin D and therefore supplementation can be important if Vitamin D levels are to be topped up. Most Vitamin D will come from sunlight and it is only found in a small number of foods, hence the need for supplementation to guarantee the recommended levels.

This vitamin works in conjunction with calcium and phosphorus, ensuring that these two key bone minerals are absorbed efficiently from the gut and to where they are needed most.

There is also much evidence from a range of sources that intake of Vitamin D higher than the RDA (recommended intake) can be beneficial in older adults. Prime Fifty has formulated with four times the RDA in order to ensure that the benefits of this incredibly important vitamin are gained.

Vitamin D also has other health benefits within immunity and also protection from oxidative stress, which is the onset of damage caused by free radicals to our cells, very relevant to the ageing body, where oxidative stress is more and more common.

Vitamin K
Another ingredient used by Prime Fifty’s Bone Strength product is Vitamin K. Vitamin K is now well established by good science to also contribute to the maintenance of bone strength, thereby giving Prime Fifty a double benefit, together with Vitamin D.

Magnesium and Zinc
Bones are also composed of other minerals besides calcium and phosphorus. Two key minerals that are essential for bone health are manganese and zinc, both of which have been proven scientifically to contribute to bone health and therefore Prime Fifty have also used these nutrients in their bone strength formula.

Vitamin C, Manganese and Copper
In separate studies, Vitamin C has been shown to contribute to the formation of collagen, which is the protective layer between bones, whilst Manganese and Copper are proven scientifically to contribute to the maintenance of tendons and ligaments. As tendons and ligaments are both connected to bone, and collagen plays a key role in bone movement, Prime Fifty believe that they are highly relevant ingredients to use in their bone health products, hence their inclusion.

 

Other Age Relevant Ingredients Across the Prime Fifty Range

Vitamin C plays a further role in energy processes, the immune system and also to help protect cells from oxidative damage, something highly relevant to the ageing body.

Vitamin E is formulated across the Prime Fifty range as a further protectant from this cell damage caused by oxidative processes within the ageing body.

Vitamins B6 and B12 are used in all Prime Fifty products too , bringing a range of over 50’s relevant benefits such as red blood cell formation and contributing to normal levels of homocysteine.

Homocysteine is associated with cardiovascular problems and therefore it is important to maintain normal levels and not allow homocysteine to get too high.

Folate is also a Prime Fifty ingredient used across the entire product range, as folate also helps maintain normal levels of homocysteine. It also has other health benefits such as red blood cell formation and is involved in energy metabolism too.

Prime Fifty products also contain Zinc bringing a whole range of benefits including bone health, immunity and also cognitive benefits too. Like Vitamin C and E, Zinc is another active nutrient that plays a role in helping to combat oxidative stress which can damage cells, highly relevant to ageing processes.

Enhanced Bio-availability
Finally you will find that across the entire Prime Fifty range, we have formulated in certain minerals that are more soluble and therefore more bio-available than most, namely bis-glycinates. These are much more quickly absorbed than the more normal oxides and carbonates. In addition, we have included a patented ingredient called Bioperine too which has been proven in separate studies to also enhance the bio-availability of certain vitamins and minerals

 

Prime Fifty targets a specific health area BUT ALSO is formulated for general health benefits which are highly relevant to the ageing body too.
