Why These Natural Ingredients?
Pro Bono is a targeted bone building protocol specifically designed to increase skeletal
strength and help maintain healthy bone density. It provides optimal servings of
clinically-proven, bone-stimulating nutrients in convenient, easy-to-take packets
to enhance bone formation. In addition, Pro Bono includes a full complement of
micronutrients making an additional multivitamin unnecessary.
Pro Bono includes 1000 mg of Strontium, one of the most well-researched, bone
supporting minerals proven to strengthen the bone matrix and support skeletal density.
Research has shown strontium to provide all natural bone support through its ability to
increase the formation of osteoblasts while decreasing the formation of osteoclasts.
Nearly 99 percent of the calcium within the adult skeletal system exists as a complex
paired with phosphorus, called hydroxyapatite. Pro Bono is formulated with calciumcitrate-
malate and calcium hydroxyapatite which have superior absorption and bone
support than the common carbonate form.
Magnesium plays numerous roles in bone health including the essential role of
increasing calcium absorption. Magnesium deficiency is very common due to factors
such as excess consumption of alcohol, salt, coffee, phosphoric acid in sodas, and longterm
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)
Vitamin D is known to be responsible for day-to-day maintenance of calcium andmineral homeostasis. Emerging research is showing a direct correlation betweenbone mineral density and serum levels of 25(OH)D3, the active form of vitamin D.
Vitamin K1 (Phytonedione) & Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone)
Vitamin K works synergistically with vitamin D3 to improve calcium absorption and is responsible for synthesizing osteocalcin, a protein involved in calcium transport and
properly embedding calcium into bone tissue. Vitamin K has also been shown to decrease the activity of osteoclasts, which helps to maintain bone formation and strength.
