What is MicroCrystalline HydroxyApatite (MCHA)?
MCHA is a highly absorbable, natural calcium source. MCHA's unique genetic makeup is comprised of minerals and specific proteins to promote bone health.*
What's the difference between MCHA and other calcium supplements?
MCHA is a concentrate of bone, and therefore contains calcium. Unlike other bone supplements such as calcium carbonate which can be more difficult for your body to absorb and possibly detrimental to your heart health, MCHA contains the minerals and proteins naturally occurring in bone for optimal bone and heart health.*
What makes BONE Essentials different from other MCHA supplements?
Not only is MCHA an important component for building strong bones, but scientific evidence supports the need for other nutrients like vitamin D3, vitamin K, potassium, magnesium, boron, and trace minerals for skeletal health,* all of which BONE Essentials provides.
Why do we need a bone supplement?
Most adults lose minerals from bone throughout the course of their lives. Calcium plays a large role in many physiological process; in particular it helps support muscle, bone, nerve and cellular health.* If blood calcium levels are depleted, calcium stored in the bone will be used. Overtime this can lead to bones becoming brittle and weak. Since the body can’t produce calcium, a complete bone supplement, in addition to a healthy diet and regular exercise, can play a role in optimal bone health and promoting bone density.*
I purchased this for my mother who has weak bones. After taking 4 capsules a day for over 6 months, she saw a significant difference in her bone density score. Her doctor recommended for her to continue taking it so hopefully her bones will grow even stronger.
After taking calcium tablets for years, my Dr. at the time told me to stop, as it was not being absorbed. I knew I needed calcium supplements, but for 2 years went without, until I started seeing Dr. O'Keefe who introduced me to Bone Essentials---truly pure calcium---exactly what I needed and with this I truly know I am getting what I need to work along with my exercise program to prevent weak bones!
I have been using bone essentials for a couple of years now. My bones have finally started showing some improvement after years of no improvement with over the counter calcium and prescriptions meds. Highly recommend
I recently fell out of a slick bottom bathtub, and landed flat on my back on a tile floor. Fortunately, I didn't break any bones....was just sore for a few days. I attribute this to the fact that I have been taking bone essentials for several years.
This is now my favorite cardiotabs favorite.
This is an excellent product. We use it every day.
After researching the various forms of calcium on the market I decided to purchase Bone Essentials because it is easily absorbed and doesn’t spike blood calcium. I have been happy with this product!
A healthy choice for me
I like this product because it is easily absorbed into the bones without the side effects of building up in blood vessels. This along with exercise seems to be working for me.
I really like this product.
I have taken a variety of calcium supplements in the past. Due to side effects from these products I was not faithful in taking them. So, I decided to try Bone Essentials after hearing a radio ad for the product. I am happy to report that Bone Essentials works for me! My doctor also heartily approved after I showed him the ingredients. The customer service is great--fast and reliable. A monthly delivery subscription ensures that I don't run out of the product.
My bone scan last year indicated a loss of bone density. Last month, another scan was normal. Dr. O’Keefe was impressed and I will continue taking Bone Essentials!
I have been taking Bone Essentials for years now. At my last Dexa Scan there was improvement shown. That's a big Wow! Thank you for making a great product!
I've noticed an overall improvement with my body. I can only attribute this to my taking bone essentials for the last 4 months.
I’m small stature & thin so am proactive against bone loss. Took coral calcium + vitamin D for years. Unfortunately, DEXA scan showed osteopenia. I switched to Cardiotabs Bone Essentials 6 months ago & have noticed a marked change in my fingernails & skin. I’m excited to get my next DEXA scan in a couple of months. I don’t always get to take 4 tabs in a day though (at least 3 tabs). Would be great if the dosage was 3 tabs rather than 4 a day.
Have used these a few years now. My DEXA has improved too!!!
Bone Essentials is easily absorbed and was recommended by my doctor!
I started Bone Essentials after a bone density test revealed bone loss. Now, my last bone density test showed a recession in bone loss. I'm a believer.
This product has been beneficial as I've added it to my lifestyle of working out (strength conditioning) and eating better.
Following the shattering of my L1 vertebra in 2011 and subsequent surgery, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. I began taking Bone Essentials faithfully, and have continued to do so for several years. My most recent bone density test showed no evidence of osteoporosis or osteopenia. I am elated and will definitely continue my daily intake of Bone Essentials!
Love the convenience of this subscription, as well as the price. Makes it easy to stay healthy!
I have been looking for a calcium vitamin that is easy to swallow All other calcium tablets are huge and consequently I avoided taking them. These are great
I have tried many calcium supplements but they all upset my stomach and give me constipation (except for the liquid calcium, but it is full of carbs). These give me no problems at all - they are easy to swallow and easily digested. I've never had my bone density tested so I can't comment on that.
I'm pleased to announce that my recent DEXA is stable! No further bone loss. As they say, "The proof is in the pudding." I will continue with this calcium supplement.
I have tried several calcium supplements in the past and this one is by far my favorite. No tummy issues and easy to take. Thank you for suggesting these to me! I also love that they can be sent directly to my door on auto-send. So much easier than me remembering to pick them up at the store!
Excellent product. Great delivery schedule.
I have been extremely happy with the results of this product.
I had been taking a calcium supplement for a while and switched to Bone Essentials on the recommendation of a friend. It’s been about a year and a half and I had my bone scan this morning and all my numbers had improved. Thanks for a great product!
I have found that the Bone Essentials is easy on my stomach which means that I don't dread taking it.
I choose this product because it is a complete bone supplement. I feel confident I have my bone health covered.
Great product. Gives me the bone supplements that I need without taking several others. Strongly recommend.
I am a registered nurse and have tried several products for my hair as an “older”…(I’m 47) woman with thinning hair and brittle nails. After only a couple weeks of taking bone essentials my hair and nails are just amazing; wish I could show a picture! I have had thyroid cancer so my hair was thin & now it’s actually growing in and this product pays for itself in a short time. I can’t tell enough people about it. Thank you Dr. O’Keefe and team!!
I find that Bone Essentials allows me to get my calcium without having any awful after taste that some calcium pills have.
Well tolerated. Good product.
This product supplies all the essentials that I need. Using for several years, am very pleased.
My doctor said it was time for me begin calcium supplements, but didn't recommend a specific product. After doing a lot of research, I found that most OTC calcium products were not absorbed. Bone Essentials is the right product for me.
After taking Bone Essentials over the past couple of years combined with doing mat Pilates classes, my DEXA score has not only stabilized but improved! I do recommend this product.
As a person with osteoporosis, calcium is essential to prevent further deterioration. Bone Essentials provide the calcium I need in my diet to help reach that goal.
I have been taking Bone Essentials for at least 4 years & have been very pleased with my bone density results. I am over 80 yrs old & have not lost any more density in my bones.
I've been taking this item for years and I can tell the difference from previous years.
