Beyond Bone Mineral Density
You can’t feel your bones becoming weaker. Bones are often thought of as hard and lifeless. But, bones are actually living, growing tissue. Bone itself undergoes continuous remodeling, with constant formation of new bones and resorption of old bones. For most women, bone loss increases quickly after menopause, when estrogen levels drop sharply. In fact, in the five to seven years after menopause, women can lose up to 20 percent or more of their bone.
Bones are made up of three major components:
- Collagen, the protein that gives bones a framework for strength and flexibility
- Calcium-phosphate mineral complexes, that fill in the gaps between the collagen frame work, making bones hard and strong
- Living bone cells that remove and replace weakened sections of bone
However, all these approaches are addressing the calcium deficiency only. Calcium builds bone density but collagen builds the frame work for calcium to attach to. It is more like the skyscraper. Collagen is the steel frame, while calcium is the cement. KoAct®’s patented collagen form is essential to improving bone flexibility which helps bones absorb impact. Without it, even the strongest bones can crack, shatter or break, and running, jumping and other activities become painful. Although the body produces collagen naturally, its production diminishes as we age.
KoAct® for better bone health
KoAct® is a patented compound of collagen peptides and calcium. This unique ingredient was found to increase both bone strength and bone mineral density in a preclinical animal studies and a recently completed human study.
KoAct® is has been awarded three US patents 7,495,076; 7,608,588; 7,759,310.
