  • 120 capsules
  • Item Catalog Number: 01725

The use of diets high in collagen to improve bone health dates back to ancient cultures. Life Extension brings you this exciting formulation with KoAct®, a patented chelated form of calcium and collagen designed to maintain optimal bone health. KoAct® helps maintain bone strength and mineral density.1 This remarkable ingredient allows for greater strength and flexibility, so your bones can absorb energy, reducing the risk of age-related injuries. Additional plant extracts from bamboo and dried plum have also been added for their bone-protective minerals and polyphenols.2-8

Bone Strength Formula with KoAct® contains the following ingredients:

Vitamin D3

  • Facilitates absorption of calcium into the bloodstream.
  • Regulates how much calcium enters and leaves bone tissue.
  • Helps regulate healthy cell division and differentiation.
  • Functions as a vital co-factor in bone mineralization through the absorption of calcium and phosphorus.

Calcium

KoAct® is a unique patented chelated compound of calcium and hydrolyzed collagen peptides (type I collagen) designed to enhance collagen support and turnover while supporting optimal bone mineral density and strength,

Magnesium

  • A critical component of our skeleton, with 50-60% of totally body magnesium found in bone
  • Positively influences the bone mineral matrix and its ability to metabolize minerals needed for repair and rebuilding.

Silicon

Plays an important role in bone formation through the synthesis and/or stabilization of collagen.

Dried Plum

Supports osteoblast (bone building cells) activity and function by upregulating cell-signaling compounds (Runx2, Osterix and IGF-1) and enhancing expression of an enzyme (lysyl oxidase) that is involved in collagen cross-linking.

Boron

Impacts steroid hormone metabolism-affecting the levels of estrogens and testosterone.

If you need extra bone support, ask your healthcare professional how Bone Strength Formula with KoAct® can be part of a comprehensive nutritional program in conjunction with proper resistance exercise. Life Extension offers several mineral formulas that may complement Bone Strength Formula with KoAct® to ensure optimal mineral intake.
