For the dietary treatment of osteoporosis (bone loss)

BIOBENE® Osteo-3 Complex is a dietary supplement for special medical purposes (supplemented diet) for the dietary treatment of bone loss (osteoporosis).

BIOBENE® Osteo-3 Complex has been developed by experts and contains three high-quality nutrients - coral calcium with important trace elements, vitamin D3 and folic acid - for the health of your bones.

The disease Osteoporosis
In osteoporosis there is a disorder of bone metabolism, which leads to a loss of bone mass. The consequences are an increase in brittleness and the number of fractures, which can often occur even at low load.

Slow bone loss from the age of 35 is a normal, physiological, phenomenon. In osteoporosis, however, the loss is particularly pronounced. About 600,000 - 700,000 people in Austria already suffer from osteoporosis or have a high risk of osteoporosis, and about one third of all women in the menopause are affected. About two-thirds of women over age 80 suffer from osteoporosis. But not only women are affected by osteoporosis: men can suffer as well! The ratio of sick women to men is around 3: 1.

An increased risk of developing osteoporosis may be due to the following causes:

  • Genetic causes: osteoporosis in parents, siblings; low body weight; graceful physique
  • Lifestyle: smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, diet (Low calcium, high phosphate consumption, high protein diet without base balance (for example vegetables), vitamin D deficiency, lack of sunlight exposure.
  • Hormonal changes: early menopause, estrogen deficiency
  • Age
  • High homocysteine level in the plasma
  • cortisone therapy

Ingredients of BIOBENE® Osteo-3 Complex

Coral calzium:
Coral calzium preserves the stability and strength of our skeleton and contains all trace elements.

Vitamin D3:
The importance of vitamin D3 is above all in facilitating the absorption of calcium by the organism, because only in combination with vitamin D3  the calcium from the intestine can  be well absorbed. In addition, the vitamin D3 also ensures that calcium can be incorporated into the teeth and bones.

Folic acid:
Folic acid is a water-soluble vitamin of the B group and is involved in many vital metabolic processes. Folic acid helps lower elevated homocysteine levels. High homocysteine levels increase the risk of osteoporosis or are associated with osteoporosis.
Both calcium and folic acid in a meaningful, synergistic way support the effect of vitamin D on bone metabolism and can help to reduce the risk of fractures - the clinically only relevant parameter - (Dr. med. Gisela Rauch-Petz).
