Rebuild® Plus - 180 CAPS
Maintaining bone health is a critical factor in maintaining mobility and independence as we age. Rebuild® is a full spectrum nutritional product designed to support bone health in patients at risk of osteoporosis. In addition to calcium and magnesium, Rebuild® contains vitamin D, vitamin K, zinc, and trace minerals important to bone health. Deficiencies of these nutrients can slow bone production or accelerate bone loss. Rebuild® Plus contains additional vitamin D-3 for those who need a higher dosage of this important vitamin.*
- Research-based formula to support bone mineral density*

- Our most potent formula to support bone health*
Rebuild® Plus is a full-spectrum, research-based formula designed to support bone health in individuals at risk for osteoporosis. It contains highly bioavailable forms of the vitamins and minerals need to prevent bone loss and a higher level of vitamin D for those who need more of this important vitamin. Adequate calcium and vitamin D, as part of a well-balanced diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Uses: Bone is living tissue that is constantly being broken down and replaced. Osteoporosis occurs when the creation of new bone doesn't keep up with the removal of old bone, resulting in deceased bone mineral density (BMD). It is associated with back pain, stooped posture, and higher fracture risk. Osteoporosis affects men and women of all races but is especially prevalent in white or Asian postmenopausal women.
Rebuild® is based on a 2-year, double-blind, placebo-controlled study that measured spinal bone loss in postmenopausal women (1). The results showed that calcium (as calcium citrate/malate) plus trace minerals (zinc, manganese, and copper) was far more effective in maintaining BMD than calcium alone.
Rebuild® also contains magnesium which is essential for the absorption of calcium, acts on crystal formation in bone cells, and impacts the activity of parathyroid hormone- a regulator of calcium homeostasis (2). 60% of the body’s magnesium id stored in bone. Magnesium deficiency results in lower BMD as magnesium is pulled out of bone for other biological functions.
Vitamin D3 stimulates absorption of calcium from the gut. Vitamin D status is related to BMD, and supplementation decreases bone turnover (3). Many factors, including lack of exposure to sunlight, sunscreen use, living at higher latitudes, and dark skin pigmentation, can result in low serum vitamin D levels. Rebuild® Plus contains 2000 IU vitamin D3 per 1000 mg of calcium (6 capsules) for those who need to improve vitamin D status.
Vitamins K-1 and K-2 work synergistically with vitamin D to stimulate production and activation osteocalcin, a protein involved in bone mineralization (4). Osteocalcin is essential for pulling calcium out of the blood and into bone. In a recent 3-year study, low-dose vitamin K2 MK-7 decreased bone loss and increased bone strength in postmenopausal women (5).
Source Materials: Ascorbyl palmitate: ascorbic acid from corn sorbitol and palmitic acid from palm oil. Vitamin D3: lanolin from sheep’s wool. Vitamin K-1: chemical synthesis. Vitamin K2 MK-7: fermentation of soy with Bacillus subtilis natto (all soy removed). Minerals are mined. Chelating agents include: citric acid (fermentation), malic acid, glucuronic acid, picolinic acid, and glycine (synthetic). Cellulose for capsules is derived from softwood tree pulp.
