Gynovite® Plus is a complete nutritional supplement formulated for postmenopausal complaints.* This supplement emphasizes magnesium over calcium. Based on a review of the published literature, magnesium also plays an important role for healthy bones, for instance, in laboratory animal studies.*(1) Countries with the highest consumption of calcium had the highest incidence of hip fracture, and the lowest hip fracture rates in post menopausal women were observed in countries with daily calcium intake as low as 400-500 mg.*(1) Several other nutrients which play important roles in bone integrity are in Gynovite® Plus.*
An increase in bone density was observed in 19 post-menopausal women following supplementation with Gynovite® Plus.*(1) Compared to a 0.7% increase in 7 women not on Gynovite® Plus, a increase of 11% was observed in the 19 women followed for the same period of time less than one year.* Repeated bone density measure following 2 years on Gynovite® Plus showed a further increase in bone density.*(1) Fifteen of the 19 women were below fracture threshold at the beginning of the study. Within one year only 7 of them still had values below that threshold.*(2) For best results, Gynovite® Plus should be used as part of a total dietary program.
