Description: Osteo-guard(One-to-One) 120t is available by Douglas Laboratories.
Osteo-Guard® One-to-One, prepared from
young bovine bone, provides calcium and phosphorus (as microcrystalline
hydroxyapatite), trace minerals, bone matrix proteins, amino acidsand
glycosaminoglycans in their natural forms and physiologic ratios found
in whole bone. Magnesium is included in an equal amount to calcium,
providing a calcium to magnesium ratio of one-to-one (1:1).

A Dietary Supplement
One-to-One, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, provides equal amounts
of calcium from microcrystalline calcium hydroxyapatite compound (MCHC)
prepared from whole bone, and magnesium from a patented, nutritionally
functional amino acid chelate (Albion Labs) with excellent
bioavailability. Osteo-guard One-to-One also provides phosphorus (as
microcrystalline hydroxyapatite), trace minerals, bone matrix proteins,
amino acids and glycosaminoglycans in their natural forms and
physiological ratios. Osteo-guard One-to-One tablets are coated with
inert cellulose to make them easier to swallow.
Osteo-guard One-to-One may be a useful
dietary supplement for anyone who wishes to increase their intake of
calcium, magnesium and other nutritional factors for maintaining good
The adult human body contains
approximately 1,200 g of calcium, about 99% of which is present in the
skeleton, and 20-30 g of magnesium with about 60% located in bone. The
remaining 1% of total body calcium and 40% of total body magnesium are
present in the soft tissues, and play important roles in such vital
functions as nerve conduction, muscle contraction, energy metabolism,
blood clotting, membrane permeability, and hormonal signaling.
calcium levels are carefully maintained within very narrow limits by
the interplay of several hormones (1,25-dihydroxy-cholecalciferol,
parathyroid hormone, calcitonin, estrogen, testosterone), which control
calcium absorption and excretion, as well as bone metabolism. The
intracellular levels of magnesium are also very tightly regulated,
since their alterations can have profound effects on cardiac and
skeletal muscle physiology. Intestinal calcium absorption ranges from
15 to 75% of ingested calcium.
Adequate Vitamin D status is
necessary for normal calcium absorption. Magnesium absorption is
independent of Vitamin D status and ranges from 30 to 60% of ingested
magnesium. Bone is constantly turning over, a continuous process of
formation and resorption. In children and adolescents, the rate of
formation of bone mineral predominates over the rate of resorption. In
later life, resorption predominates over formation. Therefore, in
normal aging, there is a gradual loss of bone. Osteoporosis affects a
large proportion of the elderly in developed countries.
and Asian women typically have low peak bone densities, and therefore,
are at the greatest risk of developing osteoporosis. It is generally
accepted that obtaining enough dietary calcium throughout life can
significantly decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis. Among other
factors, such as regular exercise, gender and race, calcium
supplementation during childhood and adolescence appears to be a
prerequisite for maintaining adequate bone density later in life. But
even elderly osteoporotic patients can benefit significantly from
supplementation with dietary calcium.
provides highly beneficial sources of both calcium and magnesium. They
are well absorbed and well tolerated. Research since the early 1980’s
indicates that boron is an essential trace element for humans. Boron is
important for normal cell membrane function and integrity. Most
notably, boron affects the composition, structure, and strength of
bone. Among other factors, boron appears to be necessary for calcium
and magnesium absorption, their adequate renal reabsorption, and their
incorporation into the bone matrix.
Absorption of boron is
about 90% efficient, and it is rapidly distributed among the tissues.
Vitamin K1 appears to have important functions in bone metabolism.
Vitamin K1-dependent formation of the calcium-binding amino acid
gammacarboxyglutamate (Gla) is important for the posttranslational
modification of proteins found in mineralized tissues. Gla-containing
proteins appear to have important regulatory functions in calcium
metabolism and bone mineralization.
