Continuing on from the previous article featuring Onnit’s more premier products we thought it was important to highlight their lesser known but still very impressive formulas! One thing that you will notice about all of their products are the citations to ACTUAL research! There are few companies that base their products on actual science & clinical studies. Empyrean Nutrition, Garden of Life are a few of these companies that come to mind in regards to formulating their products on evidence.
First up is Stron-BONE & Joint
- Vitamin K2: Can Aid the body’s ability to use calcium; while activating proteins that work to mineralize bones
- Vitamin D-3: Maintains concentration of plasma calcium in the blood
- Vitamin E: Reduce the free radical damage to osteoblasts & osteocytes
- Magnesium: Improve the strength of the bone tissue matrix.
- Potassium: Helps buffer acids which can result in higher bone mineral densities.
- Copper: Cofactor for various enzymes needed for the synthesis & modification of bone matrix.
- Manganese: Assists enzymes in the production of the proteoglycan structure of the bone matrix.
- Strontium: Large constituent of bones, can help increase bone mass density.
- Boron: Trace mineral that assists the body in reducing bone loss.
- N-Acetyl D Glucosamine: Helps the body prevent the degradation between bones.
- MSM: High concentrations found in connective tissues with anti-inflammatory properties.
- Hyaluronic Acid: Helps the body with construction and regeneration of joint tissue.
- Bioperine: Black pepper extract used for enhanced ingredient bioavailability.
This is a very impressive blend. Most Bone & Joint products sadly are centered on 1 or 2 of the above ingredients! Seeing them all in one place is quite rare & speaks volumes about Onnit & their mission to provide High Quality Products that yield results!
Vitamin C & Lysine
We all know that Vitamin C has role in supporting immune function & health as well as antioxidant & anti-inflammatory benefits. But did you know that Lysine is an essential amino acid that improves absorption of calcium, collagen synthesis while assisting the body in protecting against certain immune challenges! This is not just your usual Vitamin C Supplement either! With 3 forms of Vitamin C! Along with Calcium, Magnesium & Potassium paired with L-Lysine HCL this is an incredible ally to help boost & maintain your immune system!
Chewable Melatonin w/Lemon Balm
If you didn’t know already Melatonin is a natural hormone that your pituitary gland produces when we sleep. Before the days of electricity & Light up screens basically surrounding us daily; when darkness came our bodies would start to secrete melatonin to induce sleep. Is it no wonder we have trouble with falling asleep nowadays? When you take Melatonin you will basically be sparking that ancient signal & be able to fall asleep & stay asleep!
Spirulina & Chlorella
Super greens for super humans
Even if you’re a healthy person and eat your vegetables, Onnit & Us as well agree that today’s vegetables simply do not offer the same concentrations of nutrients they once did, especially with all the processing & growth in depleted soils. So it is necessary for us to get these nutrients from other sources. With Spirulina & Chlorella you are getting 2 forms of algae which both offer extremely dense nutrient profiles that will help you round out a balanced diet & get you one step further to optimal health!
We hope that more companies start to follow the model that so few in this industry operate by. By putting out products that are clinically validated to perform & actually bring the user the desired results!
