    What does it do?

    As we age, bone mass density (BMD) slowly declines and the bone microstructure degenerates. Bone loss itself does not necessarily show any specific symptom but it renders the body at a much bigger risk of bone fractures (e.g., hip, wrist, spine) due to the poor bone structure. A common sign of bone loss is curvature or shortened stature in older people, or even hunchback.

    Bone mass is the result of a balance between the opposite bone resorption and bone formation. In the body, bone undergoes a constant turnover in which osteoclast cells remove its mineralized matrix whereas osteoblast cells deposit the new bone matrix. In the aging process, bone resorption becomes more dominant over bone formation. For example, estrogen has a function in inhibiting bone resorption and lack of estrogen (e. g., as a result of menopause) thus increases the loss of bone matrix.

    In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), bones are governed by the kidneys, a primary source of essence of life and of the Yin and Yang energy. Thus, a strong kidney function provides ample nutrients that promote a robust formation of bones. Strengthening the kidney function is considered to be a main principle in TCM to support bone health. BoneVigor is our signature formula that follows the principle for supporting bone health.

    Bu Gu Zhi (Psoralea fruit) tonifies the kidneys, strengthens the Yang energy, reserves the essence.

    Gu Sui Bu (Drynaria) nourishes the kidneys and is well known among Chinese medicines for its property in supporting bone formation.

    Du Zhong (Eucommia) is a popular tonic for both the liver and the kidneys. The Chinese herb is well recognized for strengthening bones and tendons.

    Xu Duan (Dipsacus) is another Chinese herb that tonifies both the liver and the kidneys and strengthens the bones.

    Tu Si Zi (Cuscuta seed) invigorates the kidneys and nourishes the liver and the bone marrow.

    Shu Di Huang (Rehmannia root) nourishes the Yin energy and tonifies the blood.

    Bai Shao (White Paeony root) nourishes the blood and harmonizes the liver.

    Dan Shen (Salvia) promotes blood circulation and removes blood stasis.

    How do I use it?

    Take 6 tablets each time, 2 to 3 times daily. One bottle lasts users about 11 to 16 days.

    As the herbal formula is a mild tonic, results may only be noticeable after 1 month. It is suggested to take 4 to 6 bottles in full dose as the first regimen. The dose may then be reduced.

    1. Consult your herbalist or physician before use if you are taking other medicines.
    2. Keep out of reach of children.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended by my acupuncturist This was recommended by my acupuncturist. I cannot comment of the effectiveness until after I'll have my bone scan. But I feel confident it helps since my acupuncturist has recommended it. I also have experience with other Chinese herbals from the same company and they are definitely effective! He also suggested to melt it in hot water to increase the effectiveness. I crush the pills with a mortar and pestle and add hot water to dissolve it. It tastes good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved Bone Markers I have been taking BoneVigor for two months. Six tablets three times a day. I crush the tablets and put them in hot water to make a comforting tea. It must be working because when I had my bone marker (NTX serum) test done, my score was really good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Side Effects I was diagnosed with osteoporosis and was prescribed Fosamax which gave me some bad side effects. I grew up with herbs and decided to try the BoneVigor. I love not having the side effects. It gets to the core issue of the problem and not just candy-coating the issue. I would highly recommend this product. I cannot wait till my next bone density test to see the result from this product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Uncomfortable I bought this among several other active herb products. I can usually handle warming herbs but bone vigor is not for me. It is extremely warming for me and my tongue turned red, my body felt so hot and uncomfortable. I have to stop taking this. I hope there is another formula for bone strength that is less warming

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from looking for ALL the bone supplements I can get ! I believe in the effectiveness of Chinese herbs in general so I started taking this because I have osteoporosis. I am supplementing with other "natural" products like bone broth, non-mineral calcium supplements, and high calcium foods....look forward to good results in time....
