This sounds too good to be true, but, well, this is the honest truth. In January 2012, I was diagnoed with a -5.5% (55% bone loss in the left hip) and -4.9 (49% bone loss right hip) in my bone density scan. I am a petite woman in her 40's. As you can imagine, this was a huge blow as these ratings fall under severe Osteoporosis. I saw three bone specialists, one of which is renowed for his studies and trials in osteoporotic trials, etc. Needless to say, I was being pushed to take Forteo or Prolia. Forteo was the only one I would consider, but it was quickly ruled out, leaving Prolia as my only option. Despite the pressure to take Prolia and being told that hip fracture was essentially imminent, I opted to not go the pharma route. Mind you, I am not one of these people that thinks pharmacology is bad. I just did my research and determined that Prolia did not seem to be the right choice for me. As a result, I opted to take this matter into my own hands for a year to see what, if any impact I could make. I decided that if I did not improve by at least 5%, I would then consider going the prescription/Prolia route. But, I wanted to give my body it's own fair shake by actually taking care of it. I did not buy an books, did not follow anyone's particular advice. I did read up a bit on-line, trying to filter out the sensationalism from common sense. All I did was: Start taking MRM daily (yes, I had NEVER taken calcium supplements before, I will be honest), added 6,000 IU of Vitamin D (never had taken Vitamin D before), low impact exercise - walking 3 miles 5/days a week, pilates (for low impact stregth training), using an Omega juicer for green leafy produce - I would like to say I juice daily, but that would be a lie, use lemon juice instead of vinegar, cut out most processed foods and am eating lots of fresh food and, well...knocked the wine or any alcoholic beverages down to no more than 2-3 a week (yes, a week). Been doing all of that for one year, just to see if it could make a differencce.

I just received a call from my Rheumatologist. He is ecstatic. He started by telling me that what he was about to tell me was unprecedented in his practice and experience of 35+ years. He said that my bone density test, done this month (February 2013) came back to reflect that my left hip came back with a -2.3% (yes, my left hip's density increased from 55% bone loss to 23% bone loss) and my right hip changed to -2.1% (my right hip's bone density increased from 49% loss to 21% loss). He said that my hip bone density is now falling within the "normal" range for my age, and that he absolutely could not believe it. He asked me what I am doing now, and what I changed. He also said he is referring my file to a couple of other specialists for review and consideration as he has never seen this level of recovery in a patient. My doctor said, "Keep doing what you are doing! I can't wait to see what your bone density test reflects next year!" I will check in again, around February 2014 to offer an update as yes, I am going to continue doing what I am doing. :)

I can't say it any more simply; we need to take care of our bodies. If you are a woman and over the age of 25, start taking a good quality Calcium supplement and get your vitamin D, eat healthy (I splurge and have ice cream sometimes, yes! And even the occasional In-and-Out burger!), keep your alcohol consumption as low as you can and get some exercise (get that blood moving, get those muscles moving and some healthy impact exercises as, low impact/any impact, creates micro fractures in your bones, which leads to bone strengthing as the bone repairs itself).

I wish you the best in your health.

I use calcium every night as it helps me sleep. My biggest problem with calcium supplements is the size of the tablet and the number of pills needed to get the reccomended dosage per day. With Bone Maximizer III, you only need 3 caps per day to get 1000 mg of absorbable calcium. The capsules are easier to swallow than many other brands I've tried.

I recently was diagnosed with osteoporosis. I do not want to take any of the prescription medications for this, due to the very scary side effects and actual loss of jaw bone doctors report when people take these drugs. After doing a lot of research, and speaking with a nutritionist, I was recommended this supplement, along with the typical calcium supplement. It is very expensive if you buy it in the health food store (not available in other stores), and through Amazon, it is nearly half of what I initially paid in the health food store. I have it scheduled on the automatic subscription service and it is GREAT! I'm hoping for good results on my next bone scan, and getting it automatically every two months makes it so easy.

Received as indicated. I really have seen a difference in my bone scans for the past three years so will keep taking it versus a prescription.

I have a Masters Degree in Holistic Nutrition from a naturopathic college and I've worked for Whole Foods in the Nutrition Dept. so I know how many bone building formulas are out there. I've used the MRM formula for years and at age 71 my bone density test is excellent. Enough said.........

I started using Bone Maximizer about 2 years ago when I found out I had sevier osteoporsis. I prefer not to take peraciptions. After three bone scans they found that it is no longer getting worse. I beleive that has a lot to do with this product. I recommend it to everyone.

I've been using this product for several years and I know that there isn't a better value in a calcium supplement anywhere. Amazon has the best price I've seen. I was initially directed toward a microcrystalline calcium supplement by my chiropractor and learned from him it is most absorbable in this form, his product was more expensive. Then, I consulted with a health supplement specialist who had researched MRM's Bone Maximizer III and rated this as a better product. The things that stand out to me are that it is microcrystalline, as well as also containing Boron, D3 and magnesium…all work in unison with calcium. You can get a lower priced calcium supplement about anywhere, but this is a value for the dollar because it is absorbable, so your body gets a higher benefit. Amazon even beats the price of Nutrition Express and I'm glad I decided to search it out.

I have been using this product for years after being diagnosed with osteopena. I have stopped all bone loss and even regained some since using this product. AND Amazon has the best price! I had been buying it at a Health Foods Store and it is so much cheaper to get it from Amazon. Thanks

I don't know wehther this calcium works better than others I was told the formula is very good. I find a problem with the capsules, they open up in the jar and you end up with lots of powder. For that reason I will not buy this product again.
