The importance of bone health…

Bones play many roles in the body – providing structure, protecting organs, anchoring muscles and storing calcium. Regardless of age, everyone needs to keep their bones healthy.

From birth we build bone mass, with bone density peaking between the ages of 20 – 30. Up to age 30, the body makes new bone faster than it breaks down old bone, so bone mass increases.After which, more bone is actually lost than formed, as healthy bone formation slows down.2

Studies show that taking calcium supplements may not be enough for optimum bone health, because the body finds calcium difficult to absorb. Less than 20% of the calcium we take in through food or supplements gets absorbed through the body.If it’s not absorbed and utilised, it can’t do its job of strengthening and building our bones.

Bone health becomes more challenging and critical as we grow older and life spans lengthen. Osteoporosis is a global disease and estimated to affect 200 million people globally, while 55% of people older than 50 are at an increased risk for fracture due to low bone mass.4

That’s why Nikken developed NEW Kenzen® BDZ® – utilising the latest developments in the science of maintaining healthy bones.

Kenzen® BDZ® is formulated to work with the body’s ability to absorb and utilize the necessary calcium that contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.

Kenzen® BDZ® is formulated with three patented blends, each with exceptional bone health attributes:

1. MenaQ7® – is a natural form of Vitamin K2, which contributes to the maintenance of normal bones. It’s alsothe only clinically validated, patented vitamin K2 with long-chain menaquinones. Long-chain means its naturally-derived rather than synthetic. Naturally -derived is more readily utilized by the body and stays in the body for longer.

2. Aquamin® – is a unique marine plant multi-vitamin complex that is rich in calcium magnesium and 72 trace minerals, known to be bioavailable. The marine algae are sourced from the pristine waters of Iceland.
