B-vitamins are important for your bone density.
Multiple factors are involved in building and maintaining healthy bones. Important minerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese as well as vitamin D and exercise are factors most people are aware of affecting the bone density. What is not as well known is that the B-vitamins also affect bone health. A recently published study documented that vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) influence bone density and fracture risk (Yazdarpanah N, et al, 2007).
Elevated homocysteine levels an amino acid found to be a risk factor for age-related osteoporotic fractures can be reduced by taking the B- vitamins B6, folic acid and B12.
This particular study involved 5,304 individuals aged 55 years and over. At the end of the study the researchers concluded that increased dietary riboflavin (B2) and pyridoxine (B6) intake was associated with higher femoral neck (hip) bone mineral density. It was also found a reduction in risk of fracture in relationship to dietary vitamin B6 intake independent of bone mineral density.
The vitamin B complex from BioPro, Inc. is a well absorbed formula with additional benefits because it contains metabolites of folic acid. Not everybody metabolize folic acid properly and by inducing these metabolites in addition to the regular folic acid the benefit of folic acid can be realized by everybody.
