The United Nations, World Health Organization, and more than 40 national governments have stated that bone and joint disorders are
"the chronic care challenge of the 21st century."
16 million American adults have bone & joint disease
One in three (66 million) Americans have chronic joint symptoms
What our bones do:
-Form the body’s structural framework
-Protect the internal organs and soft tissues
-Produce red and white blood cells
-Absorb and store calcium and phosphorus for other body systems to use
Calcium from food or supplements must be absorbed by the bones and converted into usable compounds. The bones are composed of calcium bank account deposits (from food and supplements) and withdrawals (to other body systems). When deposits of calcium are greater than withdrawals “bone banks” stay strong and healthy. Problems occur when the bones release more calcium than they take in.
Once bone density decreases to a certain level, its structure can no longer hold calcium, regardless of how much is taken in through food or supplements. Decreased bone density contributes to bone fractures, insomnia, muscle spasms, heart palpitations and numbness in the arms and legs. Absorption studies have shown that only 10% of the calcium from most supplements actually enters the cells.
Our bones must continually rebuild themselves — the skeleton is effectively replaced 10 times in 70 years. As we age, however, that rebuilding process slows down. Physical activity is known to help build up bone, but few adults receive the exercise they need. Obesity and weight problems also impose stress on the skeletal structure. When daily withdrawals from the ‘bone banks’ are greater than the deposits, our bones become porous and brittle.
Bio-Replenishment is a concept that is different from conventional nutritional support. In contrast to ordinary dietary supplements or drugs, Bio-Replenishment offers products based on the body's own biochemicals, its internal building blocks. These can only be formed within the body. With age and certain diseases, the body produces less of these important chemicals. Bio-Replenishment provides a ‘delivery system’ to enhance the synthesis of these essential biochemicals. Bio-Replenishment is designed to enhance the use or synthesis of these minerals, to support the physical processes that keep us alive and healthy.* Replenishment theory is well known in biology and medicine. With Bio-Replenishment, Nikken applies this principle to daily, personal health care.
Syno-portin technology is a targeted transport system, exclusive to Nikken, that helps in biochemical conversion and absorption, and enables vital bone health ingredients to reach the specific target site — the joint area, or synovium — for improved bio-availability.* This technology promotes the physical process of replacing bone tissue and supports the optimal balance of minerals within bones and joints to help maintain bone density and support the structure and integrity of joint cartilage.*
OsteoDenx from Nikken represents a unique advance in support of healthy, strong bones. Only OsteoDenx is designed to promote both aspects of bone health -- the release and absorption of vital mineral compounds, and the formation of new bone tissue.* OsteoDenx is not a calcium nutritional supplement or a prescription osteo drug. Ordinary supplements merely provide minerals such as calcium and phosphorus in an effort to replace what is depleted every day. OsteoDenx is different: it is designed to complement the body's natural tissue growth and to help support the physical process of preserving bone density.* In its role as a bone health supplement, OsteoDenx helps support a range of physical and systemic activities that are necessary to sustain life.
OsteoDenxTM is not a calcium supplement.
It is a potentiator (activator) of calcium and other minerals already in the system. In other words, it makes the minerals we take in more available to our systems and allows us to receive their full benefits.
Take one capsule daily with meal.

After receiving his PH.D. in 1985 from the Faculty of Medicine, Osmania University, India, Dr. Naidu has worked for several agencies, including the World Health Organization, the Hungarian Ministry of Health, the Directorate of Medicine and Health Services of the Government of India, and the Royal Sweedish Academy of Sciences. Dr. Naidu has held faculty positions as a professor at several Universities including the Pecs Medical University, Hungary; the Lund University, Sweeden; the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA; and the California State University, USA.
Dr. Naidu is on advisory panels of several multi -national companies, an invited speaker to many universities and scientific organizations around the world. As a prolific writer, he has authored research chapters in more than 25 scientific reference books. Dr. Naidu is also the editor of the highly acclaimed reference volumes, Natural Food Antimicrobial Systems; and Lactoferrin; the two best sellers of the CRC Press.
Early work on Staphylococcal food poisonings and toxic shock syndrome brought International recognition to Dr. Naidu. He received the European Young Scientist Award in 1989 from the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and the Par Excellence Citation for Medical Research in 1992 from the Lund University in Sweeden.
Dr. Naidu began his journey with milk lactoferrin research from the mid-1980s in Sweeden and published over 50 peer-reviewed scientific articles on this topic. In 1999, he made a major breakthrough in this research area with the invention of 'activated lactoferrin'. This revolutionary technology is commercialized and rewrote the concept of food safety worldwide.
Nikken and Dr. Naidu joined hands to introduce the Next Generation of dietary supplements. Lactoferrin Gold, Osteodenx and CalDenx.
