Description
WOMEN’S ULTRA MEGA® BONE DENSITY WITHOUT IRON AND IODINE
Clinically studied multivitamin

GNC Women’s Ultra Mega® Bone Density is a scientifically designed multiple vitamin and mineral formula that emphasizes key nutrients for bone health. This premium formula boasts similar attributes as traditional Women’s Ultra Mega® but is enhanced with 1,000 mg of calcium, 2,000 IU of vitamin D-3 and 40 mg of MBP®, a protein complex derived from milk.
  • MBP ®– A functionally active protein complex isolated and purified from milk protein. Emerging research indicates that MBP® supports the body's natural ability to build and maintain bone mass by supporting the body's bone building cells.*

    Percent gain in bone density (left calcaneus) over six months. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 33 adult females were supplemented with 40 mg/day MBP® (n = 17) or placebo (n = 16) in a beverage for six months. Bone density was measured at baseline and after six months by Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA). The diets of both groups were monitored during this time and found to be no different.
  • Calcium and Magnesium – Important structural components of bone that help maintain healthy bone matrix.* Each daily serving provides 1,000 mg of calcium and 250 mg of magnesium. †Adequate calcium and vitamin D in a healthy diet throughout life may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
  • Vitamin D-3 – Now includes 2,000 IU of vitamin D-3 which is essential for healthy bones and teeth.* Emerging research suggests that adequate daily vitamin D intake may play a role in supporting breast and colon health.*
Lutemax 2020™ - In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 112 healthy volunteers, subjects taking the GNC vitamin and mineral blend in this product for six weeks experienced statistically significant improvements in markers of B vitamin and antioxidant status, as well as improvements in SF-36 Vitality and Mental Health scores compared to those taking a placebo.

What Makes a Good Multivitamin?
: Main Image
Multiples are available as a powder inside a shell capsule, as a liquid inside a soft-gelatin capsule, or hard-pressed as tablets that may be chewed or swallowed
Designed for people whose diets don't meet all their nutritional needs, multiple vitamin-mineral supplements ("multivitamins") are convenient nutrient combinations, usually taken one to six times per day. While it's generally agreed that a healthy diet is the best foundation for health, everyday life makes that goal challenging for many people. So, some people supplement in hope of preventing disease-causing deficiencies and providing higher nutrient amounts than they can get through diet alone, which may help prevent or manage certain diseases.

Who decides how much is enough?

Recommended dietary allowances have been developed by a scientific panel to broadly cover healthy people of any age or gender. Used to design mass food programs, such as for the armed forces and food relief/ration programs, RDA's were the basis for the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) values, which the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses to create the Daily Value (DV) packaging labels.

Many multivitamins contain at least 100% of RDA recommendations. However, decades of research on human nutrition has led many researchers and healthcare professionals to conclude that a "one-size-fits-all" approach does not address the increased need for certain nutrients by people who are not healthy or by those at increased risk of developing various diseases due to genetics or lifestyle habits. The RDA does account for this increased need in certain cases such as, vitamin C for smokers, or vitamin D for seniors. Abundant research also suggests therapeutic benefits to supplementing with certain nutrients, even when eating a healthful diet.

For a list of the recommended optimal amounts of each nutrient, go to a Healthy Person's Guide to Vitamins & Minerals.

What's the best multivitamin for me?

Multiples are available as a powder inside a hard-shell pull-apart capsule, as a liquid inside a soft-gelatin capsule, or hard-pressed as tablets that may be chewed or swallowed. Common products on the market include:

  • Low-potency/one-a-day multiples: These mixtures often contain 100% of the daily requirements for most vitamins and some minerals that many people require. However, they do not provide enough to make up for deficiencies or other therapeutic amounts. For example, people eating a Western diet may be deficient in minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which one-a-days may not help correct.
  • High-potency multiples: These mixtures may provide higher amounts of desired nutrients sometimes designed to support particular health goals, such as heart health. To evenly distribute nutrition to the body, these are convenient combination products usually designed to be taken as caplets or tablets in divided doses, depending on the formula.
  • Timed-release: Some healthcare professionals assume that releasing vitamins and minerals slowly into the body over a period of time is better than releasing them all at once. However, except for some studies showing better absorption of time-released vitamin C, this assumption has not been well studied and some concerns have been raised about the safety of the chemical agents used to cause the timed release.
  • Vegetarian: Most capsules are made from animal gelatin, so vegetarians need to carefully read supplement labels to ensure they are getting a vegetarian product.

What's the best way to take a multi?

The best time to take most supplements is with meals, to avoid stomach upset they sometimes cause and to help the body better absorb the nutrients.

  • Capsules vs. tablets: Occasionally B vitamins react with a product's other ingredients, especially when exposed to moisture or heat; this can cause discoloration and a bad smell. While the multiple is still safe and effective, the smell is off-putting and usually not very well tolerated. Liquid multiples in a soft-gel capsule-or tablets or capsules that are kept dry and cool-do not have this problem. Capsules are usually smoother than tablets, so some people find them easier to swallow. Properly made tablets and capsules will dissolve readily in the stomach, allowing the nutrients to be absorbed.
  • Chewables: Multiples do not taste very good and to make them palatable to both children and adults, bad-tasting ingredients are reduced or eliminated and the rest are masked with a sweetener (sometimes more sweetener than any other ingredient). Debates continue, but healthcare professionals generally recommend avoiding regular consumption of both artificial sweeteners like aspartame (NutraSweet(R)) and sugars. (Xylitol, a natural sugar, does not cause tooth decay or other known problems but is rarely used in chewables because it is relatively expensive.) Chewable vitamin C products should contain buffered vitamin C, rather than the acidic form (ascorbic acid), to avoid damaging tooth enamel.

Does a multiple ensure good nutrition?

Nothing beats a nutrient-rich, whole foods diet to as a foundation for good nutrition, and quality supplements may help support that goal.

Are multiples good for kids?

While a whole food diet is the preferable route, a high-quality multivitamin might be recommended for children eating an unbalanced diet. In one double-blind trial, schoolchildren received a daily low-potency vitamin-mineral tablet for three months that contained 50% of the RDA for most essential vitamins and the minerals. About 20% of participants (working class, primarily Hispanic, children, aged 6 to 12) experienced dramatic gains in certain measures of IQ, possibly due to correction of specific nutrient deficiencies in these children. However, it was not possible in this study to identify which nutrients caused the improvement.

      Comments about GNC Women's Ultra Mega® Bone Density without iron and iodine:

      I've used product about 3 yrs. Was diagnosed with osteophorosis originally, and could not tolerate conventional, harmful drugs, e.g. fosomax. My bone density scans since have shown no further bone loss .. scan was inconclusive as to whether there was actual increase in bone density. However, I've had two nasty falls since taking this product with no resultant bone breaks. (I had originally found out I had the osteo diagnosis when I fell and fractured my ankle). I will continue to use this product.

        I bought these vitamins because they seem like a good product but I may wind up returning them due to the bad odor of them. Before even opening the safety seal on the bottle I noticed this horrible odor in the cabinet that I keep the vitamins in. It smelled like urine, to be honest. When I finally opened the new bottle of vitamins it was clear that this was the smell that was filling my cabinet...BAD! I had bought these vitamins in the past and there were a few different varieties of them. One I had didn't have this smell and the other did. I'm not sure why they can't make them w/o this odor because I think otherwise this is a good product but the smell is enough to make me take it back.

            This is a new product for me. After a bone scan a couple of years ago, my doctor wanted to give me a prescription for Boniva. I opted not to take it but to try with calcium and exercise to strengthen my bones. I am not a big medicine taker so try to avoid it as much as possible. I saw this on the website and decided to try it. Since it has all the vitamins of a multivitamin, I take it in place of a daily multi. I will be having another bone scan in the next few months and hope that this has helped. Can't give it 5 stars until I get the results. It's easy to take and I compared it to my regular multi so I don't have to take this in addition to it but instead of it. Looking forward to results of new bone scan.
