      Product Label

        BONE-UP combines Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite (MCHA) (from free-range Australian calves) with vitamin K2 as MK-7 (a more bioavailable form of vitamin K) and vitamin D3 to support the deposition of calcium into the bones as well as to assist in building up the organic bone matrix. Also added are the nutrients potassium citrate, and methylcobalamin (an active coenzyme form of B12) for optimal osteo support. HEALTH CLAIM: In conjunction with regular, weight-bearing exercise and a healthy diet, calcium helps teen and young adult women build bone mass and maintain bone health, and may reduce their risk of osteoporosis later in life. Daily calcium intake above 2,000 mg is not likely to provide additional benefit. Adequate calcium intake is also linked to reduced osteoporosis by slowing bone loss in older men and women. For best results use with Jarrow FORMULAS JarroSil, the biologically Activated Silicon.

      Directions
      Take 1 to 6 capsules per day with meals, preferably dividing the number of capsules equally with each meal to facilitate maximum absorption, or as directed by your qualified health consultant.

        I have been using this for 2 years and I highly recommend it. A bone density test showed improvement in my bone density after 2 years and Fosamax never did help after using it for 4 years. No more manufactured meds for me!!!!

        Save your money! I have stage 4 breast cancer= in my bones. I take a calcium supplement. I bought this product (cost almost $28.00) on the recommendation of the salesperson, but he didn't mention and I didn't notice the Health claim section--well below the "usage" directions that are on the bottle label..."For best results, use with Jarrow Formulas JarroSil, the biologically Activated Silicon. My blood Calcium levels fell below normal and I am unable to get my Zometa treatments until I can get the calcium level back up into a normal level...so I've gone to another calcium supplement from a different manufacture!

        Keep in mind, cancer is a different animal. Cancer patients are recommended calcium citrate I believe. Just like people who are not experience cancer, may be able to eat fruit. With cancer, the fructose may have to be cut out.

            I have osteoperosis and had a bone scan two years ago after starting Bone Up. My new bone scan showed quite an inprovement in my bone mass after continuing Bone Up instead of the medicine they wanted to give me for my bone loss.

              Comments about Jarrow Formulas Bone Up Hydroxyapatite Calcium - 240 Capsules:

              About 2.5 years ago, my BFF and her husband recommended that I use Bone-up because of the good clinical trial results and formula. Shortly thereafter, I had a bone density test done, which showed an area of clinically significant decreased density in my left hip (osteopenic) - and that really freaked me out because two years prior to that my scan had been normal/good. So, I got serious about taking the 6 Bone-up capsules per day. Just recently, and two years later, I had a repeat bone density scan done, and the area had improved to the point it was no longer considered osteopenic! My doctor was astounded - and claimed he'd never seen a scan improve! And I am psyched! I will take this forever! BTW, I am 58 years old, active and normal weight - and follow a Weston Price diet (which helps too).

                This supplement was recommended to me by a friend, a health professional, for my residual knee swelling and discomfort 2 yrs post-op from TKR. I'd have swelling post-activity: extended walking, squats, stair climbing. In less than 2 weeks using Bone Up ! I have ZERO swelling post-activity. I'm back to doing body-weight squats and may progress to barbell squats soon.

                        On May 3, 2011 I tripped and fell up a step and broke my right humurous. It was a spiral break which is known to be both painful (it was)and slow healing. My sister who was helping me through the difficult time told me to get a GOOD calcium supplement. I am 64 and had not been taking any calcium before my accident. My sister told me to load up on calicum so I started taking 3 capsules per day. After 3 months of taking this formula my doctor says my healing progress is phenominal. I chalk this up to the bone up and following Dr.'s orders.

                            I would like to let every one know that 3 years ago, I was about to undergo a total knee replacement at the age of 45. I walked out of pre-op hoping and praying there was something out there that would help aliviate the pain in my knee. My mother found this product, and after taking for 4 months I no longer needed a walker, and 6 months later I no longer needed a cane. I will continue to take this product because it works for me. There is no guarantee that it will do for you what is does for me, I have Osteo Arthritis. The one thing I can say, it won't hurt to try!!

                                I have been using Bone-Up for my Calcium and Magnesium supplement for over 5 years because it works. I used to have leg spasms at night until I started taking Bone-Up before bed time. My husband has restless leg syndrome. He now takes Bone-Up both with dinner and at bed time and it has reduced his leg problem.

                                    I've been using Bone-Up for years for my osteoporosis, especially after reading about the scary side effects of bisphosphonates (osteoporosis drugs). My DEXA scores were starting to improve a few years ago, and I can't wait to see what they look like today. Just to be perfectly frank, this improvement is in conjunction with heavy weight training and a clean diet, plus supplementation.

                                            I have been using this for years, it helps with pain and it also is protecting my bone density from the meds the doctors have had me on for years

                                            How big is the pill?

                                            Best Answer: The capsules are about 1" long and 1/4" across. Dosage is usually 2 capsules with each meal. They are easy to swallow and best of all, give me a good bone density report at age 72. I also eat lots of green, fresh veggies and moderate dairy products in addition to salmon, sardines, and other calcium rich foods.
