Country Life Bone Solid™ Description

  • Increase Mineral Utilization
  • Strengthen Bones
  • Support Bone Metabolism

The calcium contained in Bone Solid® is microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA), a form of calcium that is closest to the body's own natural bone composition. The structure of MCHA is that of calcium phosphate, and 90% of the body's calcium is stored in the bones in this form.


To aid in bone formation, vitamins K1, K2 and D3 are added in generous amounts. A clinical study among post-menopausal women over a 3-year period showed that these vitamins played a proper role in bone metabolism.


Bone Solid® also contains FruiteX-B®, which contains a patented from of boron. Boron may help to support bone health.


Did you know that bone loss begins for many of us at age 30? Whether you are a man or a woman, you will begin to lose bone density year after year. An important step is to regularly replenish and increase your body's intake of calcium as well as vitamins K1, K2 and D3.


Introducing Bone Solid®, a specially formulated product that contains a unique natural from of calcium, as well as other minerals that your body recognize as similar to its own natural bone composition. Through Bone Solid®'s Triple Action, your body's calcium will be better replenished and increased:


Bone Solid®'s Triple Action:

  1. Increased mineral  utilization: Microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) is identical to the body's natural bone composition.
  2. Strengthens bones: This powerful formula of MCHA combined with nutrients such as vitamins K1, K2 and D3 builds and protects bones.
  3. Supports bone metabolism: Bone is regenerated by the body and goes through a metabolic process. The inclusion of nutrients such as vitamins K1, K2 and D3 aids in this process for better bone support.

What are Chelated Minerals?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We hear the word “chelate” quite often when we’re talking about minerals, but what is it and what does it mean? A chelate (pronounced k  - l t) is a compound (oftentimes an amino acid) bound to a mineral (or metal) to support mineral absorption. The word is derived from the Greek word “chele” meaning “claw like.” So you can think of a chelate as a “claw” that is holding onto something at multiple points.

Man Holding Supplement Bottle and Capsule in Hand Wondering What are Chelated Minerals

Understanding minerals

Let’s start with some basics about minerals. We need minerals to maintain good health. Minerals are considered an essential nutrient. This means that they must be consumed either from the foods we eat or by taking supplements – because our bodies cannot make them on their own. Minerals are responsible for many different functions in the body, including supporting bone health, muscle function and nerve function; promoting healthy hair, skin and nails; producing enzymes and hormones; and playing a part in many other metabolic processes. Magnesium alone is a cofactor in over 300 different bodily functions! Minerals are classified into two categories – macro (or major) minerals, which are the minerals we need the largest quantities of. These include calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium and chloride. And then there are trace minerals, which we only need in small amounts. Trace minerals include chromium, copper, iron, manganese, selenium, iodine, zinc and fluoride. Below is a list of food sources that provide each of the categories of minerals.

Macro (major) minerals:

Calcium: yogurt, cheese, milk, salmon, leafy green vegetables Chloride: salt Magnesium: spinach, broccoli, legumes, seeds, whole-wheat bread Potassium: meat, milk, fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes Sodium: salt, soy sauce, vegetables

Trace minerals: 

Chromium: meat, poultry, fish, nuts, cheese Copper: shellfish, nuts, seeds, whole-grain products, beans, prunes Fluoride:  fish, teas Iodine: iodized salt, seafood Iron: red meat, poultry, eggs, fruits, green vegetables, fortified bread Manganese: nuts, legumes, whole grains, tea Selenium: organ meat, seafood, walnuts Zinc: meat, shellfish, legumes, whole grains If we all consumed well-balanced diets, didn’t rely on overly processed foods and could access produce grown in healthy soil that wasn’t depleted of nutrients, we’d be able to get all the minerals we need from our diets. However, many of us aren’t getting what our bodies need from diet alone. So we often turn o supplements to help fill in nutrient gaps. (Quick reminder: Supplements are meant to supplement your diet – not to take the place of nutrient-rich, whole-food sources of nutrition. Also, if you’re considering adding a new supplement to your routine, always check with your health care provider first!)

So, what are chelated minerals?

You may be wondering: Why is it helpful for minerals in supplement form to be chelated (have a chelate attached)? In the 1960s, research revealed that mineral chelation helped facilitate the absorption of minerals. For this reason, many supplemental minerals today are chelated – usually with an amino acid, but sometimes with other ingredients such as citric acid or malic acid. Looking at supplement facts panels on product labels, you might notice different names for minerals, such as calcium citrate, magnesium malate or zinc bisglycinate. Confusing, right? Not if you understand chelation! The names simply represent the mineral and the type of chelate used. For example, calcium citrate is the calcium with citric acid as the chelate. Magnesium malate is magnesium with malic acid as the chelate. Zinc bisglycinate is zinc with glycine as the chelate. So it’s not a “different” mineral – the mineral is still the same. If you have calcium citrate and calcium lysinate – both are still calcium; however, one is chelated with citric acid and the other with the amino acid lysine. Here are some common compounds used as chelates and what the mineral final name would be on a supplement facts panel: Chelate                     Mineral Name Glycine            =          (mineral) Glycinate or Bisglycinate   Taurine           =          (mineral) Taurinate   Lysine              =          (mineral) Lysinate   Citric Acid       =          (mineral) Citrate   Malic Acid       =          (mineral) Malate   Aspartic Acid   =          (mineral) Aspartate   Picolinic Acid   =          (mineral) Picolinate Note that these are just a few chelates commonly used in supplemental minerals. You may find more. Amino acids are frequently used either as individual aminos or groups of amino acids, such as rice protein-based amino acids. What’s the difference between a single chelated and multiple chelated mineral? A single chelated mineral has only one chelate. For example, calcium citrate is calcium with citric acid as the chelate. Magnesium glycinate (or bisglycinate) is magnesium with glycine as the chelate, as seen below on this supplement facts panel. Magnesium Glycinate Supplement Facts Panel This indicates that the 400 mg of magnesium has one chelate – glycine. But what if you were looking at the supplement facts panel and saw something like this? Zinc Supplement Facts Panel Here you see 50 mg elemental weight of zinc chelated with four different chelates, hence four different “names” associated with the zinc. This is an example of multiple chelates.

Chelated mineral supplements

Country Life® has an extensive line of mineral supplements featuring single chelated minerals – or multiple chelated minerals in its unique and trademarked line of Target-Mins® products. Additionally, their calcium bone support products are formulated with a 2:1:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium and phosphorous to provide proper utilization of these important bone-support minerals. In summary, it’s really important to understand the value minerals bring to supporting our overall health. Responsible for a multitude of functions in the body, minerals are becoming a more talked about supplementation category. Our bodies can’t make them – so you’ve got to get them through diet or dietary supplements. #PowerYourGreatness with minerals.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title="Featured Products" border_width="2"][vc_row_inner equal_height="yes" content_placement="middle" gap="35"][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="165512" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1678746681236{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link=""][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="165510" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1678746700500{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link=""][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="165511" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1678746718247{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link=""][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
