The Bone Rebuilding Cycle is a continuous cycle of bone breakdown and bone formation. The balance between osteoclast activity, which dissolves bone mineral, and osteoblast activity, which produce new bone mineral, governs whether bone is made, maintained or lost.
A prolonged resting period follows until a new rebuilding cycle begins.
Osteoclasts break down bone mineral and bone structure creating cavities in the bone.
The bone surface is prepared for osteoblasts to begin building bone.
Osteoblasts form a new bone structure to replace the bone that has been broken down.
LithoLexal®’s products are formulated to help support and maintain the normal Bone Rebuilding Cycle.
LithoLexal®’s products for bone health contain a plant-based calcium that is more easily digested than the rock-based calcium found in generic calcium products. This unique marine derived extract is needed to help inhibit bone breakdown, which is an osteoclast activity, and promote bone formation, which is an osteoblast activity.Read more about the products
