MBP®

The Next Generation of Bone Density Support

Calcium is key to strong bones—but healthy bone density only happens when the calcium actually reaches your bones, where it can be used.*

Nutritionists today recommend getting most of your calcium from your diet. Why? Preliminary evidence shows that excess calcium not used by your bones can be deposited into your soft tissues, setting up potential health risks.*

MBP is an extraordinary protein fraction discovered in milk that encourages your bones to use dietary calcium by directly stimulating bone-building cells. Clinical studies have shown that it can help you optimize the benefits of the calcium you eat.*

Make MBP your bone density ally!*

MBP

MBP® Bone Renew®

One small capsule per day provides 40mg of MBP, the amount shown in clinical studies to positively impact bone density. MBP Bone Renew is a great choice if you're getting plenty of calcium in your diet from foods such as cheese, kale, and sardines—it's also perfect for younger active women seeking to optimize their bone density early on.*

MBP Osteo

MBP® Osteo

This multi-action formula combines the power of MBP with the latest science-backed nutrients. MBP Osteo provides the moderate 500mg of calcium that recent science suggests for those who don't get enough calcium from their diet, plus vitamins D3 and K2 to help that calcium reach the bones.*

Healthy Bones and MBP®

Your bones support your whole body when you sit, stand, and walk. They protect your organs and give them room to function, anchor your muscles so they can move, and store calcium for a multitude of cellular functions. Strong, healthy bones support everything your body can do.

The Bone Cycle

The Bone Cycle

Your body is constantly remodeling your bones, building new bone tissue and reabsorbing the old. When you're young, new bone formation happens much faster, so your bone mass increases.

Your body reaches peak bone mass around age 30. After that, bone remodeling continues, but bone breakdown starts happening faster, and you start to lose slightly more bone mass than you gain. The higher your bone mass at its peak, the less likely you are to develop osteoporosis as you age—so it's never too early to start caring for your bones.

The science of MBP®

MBP is an extraordinary protein fraction discovered in milk that directly stimulates bone-building cells.*

The Science of MBP

Four clinical studies show how powerful MBP can be: women of all ages taking MBP, and getting calcium only from their diets, showed meaningful bone density results after six months of consistent use. In the study among healthy young women, MBP resulted in significantly higher mean gain in lumbar spine bone density (1.57%) compared to placebo (.13%). It may seem small, but a 1.57% gain is significant—12 times higher than the placebo group's results.1 And preliminary research supports beneficial effects on bone in men, too.*

  • In healthy menopausal women, the mean gain in lumbar spine bone density was significantly higher in the group receiving MBP (1.21%) than in the placebo group (-.66%).1*
  • In healthy young women, MBP also resulted in significantly higher mean gain in lumbar spine bone density (1.57%) compared to placebo (.13%).2*
  • In healthy adult women receiving MBP, density gain in the left calcaneus (heel) bone over 6 months was 70% more than in those receiving placebo.3*
  • In healthy adult men, a short-term study showed that MBP supplementation increased a marker of bone formation and lowered a marker of bone breakdown, further evidence of its ability to support healthy bone renewal.4*

The studies used just 40mg MBP daily—the same dose in one capsule of MBP Bone Renew® and in one serving of MBP Osteo—and study subjects took no calcium supplements. Results suggest that MBP actually encourages your body to use dietary calcium for bone building.*

How to support healthy bones

A number of factors affect your bone health, including the amount of calcium in your diet, physical activity, tobacco and alcohol use, medications and supplements, plus gender, size, age, race, family history, and hormone levels.

Here are a few simple steps you can take to build strong, healthy bones at any age:

NightWell™

  • Eat a balanced, nutritious diet.
  • Get plenty of calcium. Good sources include dairy, almonds, broccoli, kale, canned salmon with bones, sardines, and soy products, such as tofu.
  • Get enough vitamin D, which your body needs to absorb calcium. Good dietary sources include oily fish, such as tuna and sardines, eggs, and fortified milk. Your skin can also produce some of its own vitamin D from sunlight.
  • Be active every day. Weight-bearing exercise like walking, jogging, tennis, and climbing stairs can help you build strong bones and slow bone loss.
  • Don't smoke, and avoid drinking alcohol to excess.
  • Supplement with MBP to help build strong, healthy bones for life.*
