Bone issues affect an estimated 35 million people in the United States. Not surprisingly bone issues directly contribute to increased fractures and injuries.
OsteoPhase is a marine-based nutritional supplement designed to support skeletal bone health and bone modeling by promoting healthy calcium regulation. OsteoPhase was developed after extensive research into the biology of nacre the lustrous prismatic layer of mollusk shells also known as Mother of Pearl. This fascinating composite biogenic material consists of a matrix of proteins, glycoproteins and chitin that combine elasticity with high mechanical strength similar to modern ceramics. The formula was developed after ten years of clinical research that sought to identify and isolate a number of biologically active proteins and enzymes derived from the inner lining of oyster shells. These tissues are primarily responsible for stimulating and controlling the formation of new shell growth from available marine calcium.
The researchers developed a proprietary process for extracting these bioactive ingredients, which were then blended with ionic calcium and medicinal herbs previously shown to enhance healthy calcium regulation. The result is a unique formula that supports overall bone health.
Initial research on OsteoPhase indicates that the formula supports the body in regulating calcium balance (homeostasis) by positively maintaining bone density and calcium levels in the blood and cells.
OsetoPhase contains a unique, naturally rich source of calcium along with time-proven osteo-supportive herbs and botanicals, including:
Concha Ostrea oyster shell, or Ostrea talienwhanensis shell, provides calcium carbonate, along with additional minerals, glycolipids and nutrients. Ostrea is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine. Studies have shown that this unique source of calcium may support bone-building. (1), (2)
Known to support healthy, oxygen-rich microcirculation, extracts of Astragalus have also been shown to promote bone health in laboratory animals. (3)
Angelica has been shown to stimulate the proliferation of precursor cells to maintain bone health. (4)
Long used in traditional Chinese medicine, and as a food, Coix seeds have been shown to support bone health. (5)

Customer Pleased With OsteoPhase
About five or six years ago, I was suffering from seasonal issues. My Mom suggested I try AllerPhase. I'm not sure where she had seen it advertised, but she gave me the order information and I tried it since I wasn't happy with the side affects from prescription and over-the-counter remedies. AllerPhase has worked wonderfully for me, and over the years my seasonal issues are much less severe than they were previously which I attribute to the supplement.
Then about four years ago my doctor ordered a bone density scan, due to my age and personal family history. I was diagnosed with bone health issues. My doctor, quite naturally, suggested I start taking medication. I explained that I'd prefer to try another course of action versus taking a prescription drug that I would most likely be taking for the rest of my life. I'd had such good success with AllerPhase that I decided to try your OsteoPhase and FemmePhase formulas, in place of prescription drugs to promote my bone health.
I began taking your OsteoPhase and FemmePhase, along with vitamin D and calcium that my doctor had suggested, and walking to improve my bone health. Two years later I had a follow-up bone density scan. This second test indicated that my bones were becoming stronger and healthier. I was ecstatic and continued using OsteoPhase and FemmePhase for the next two years.
So here we are, four years after the original diagnosis, and my third bone density scan has revealed that I have successfully addressed my bone health issues, and my bones are healthy and normal. I recently ordered these two formulas for my Mom, since she suffered from a stress fracture in one of her vertebrae from the unfortunate affects of having bone health issues. I am a firm believer in these supplements and have the medical tests to prove they worked for me.
M.D. Reports Improved Bone Health
I have been using OsteoPhase for four years. I started taking OsteoPhase after I had been diagnosed with bone health issues. I began taking a mixture of nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, vitamin D3, K2-7, strontium, boron, and 6 capsules of OsteoPhase daily.
After four years my risk analysis has improved dramatically. While it is not clear which of the nutrients are responsible for the improvement, I will not stop taking OsteoPhase.

OsteoPhase for Healthy Teeth, Gums
A male patient of mine in Susanville, CA, has been taking your OsteoPhase bone formula for some time now. Last Friday after his appointment with a dental hygienist in my building, she commented that she was amazed at the bone growth in his teeth and the improvement in his gums since his last visit 6 months ago. We plan to have a new bone scan in a few weeks when he has finished his additional 3 bottles of OsteoPhase and will send you a copy.
Thanks, Jim C.
What is the recommended daily dose of OsteoPhase?
The recommended daily dose of OsteoPhase is 1-2 capsules, 2 times per day.
How much OsteoPhase can I safely take in a day?
You can safely take up to 9 capsules in a day to gain the full effectiveness of the OsteoPhase supplement. However, we recommend that you talk to one of our product specialists to determine your starting dose of OsteoPhase. Call the toll-free number at 1-866-778-2646, ext 2 for a free consultation.
How do I know OsteoPhase is working for me?
OsteoPhase is a Tango Advanced Nutrition product that should make a change for you in your bone health and how your body uses calcium. Since calcium is a mineral involved in every physiological action in the body, each person will note different individual results while using the formula.
Since you may be taking OsteoPhase as a supplement for bone health, we recommend that you have a current baseline DEXA bone scan and a follow-up scan between 6-12 months after starting to take OsteoPhase.
Do I have to take OsteoPhase forever?
Everybody has a different set of circumstances that will determine how their overall and bone health will be promoted when using OsteoPhase. Your response to the supplement will be determined by your individual health circumstances. Issues with bone health usually have a long-standing cause and develop over many years. This may determine how soon you notice positive changes and how long you may need or wish to take the formula.
Once you determine that you have achieved positive results using OsteoPhase, you can call one of our product consultants at 1-866-778-2646, ext 2 for assistance in determining if you need to continue taking OsteoPhase and at what dose. Usually you can take a lower dose for ongoing benefits.
When should I take OsteoPhase?
The most important consideration in taking OsteoPhase is to use it daily and consistently. Convenience makes regular use possible, so including OsteoPhase in your regular supplement routine is a good idea.
You can take OsteoPhase with or away from meals.
Morning and early evening are the best times to take the formula to spread out its benefits over a 24-hour period.
Can I take OsteoPhase with other supplements?
Yes, you can take OsteoPhase with and at the same time as you take other dietary supplements.
We recommend that you can take a balanced calcium supplement that contains up to 600 mg. of calcium for daily use.
I take over-the-counter/prescriptive medicines for better circulation. Can I take OsteoPhase with them?
You can take OsteoPhase while you are using medicines for your circulation or any other condition. However, you should always take OsteoPhase or any other supplement at least 2 hours away from any medication to reduce any possible risk of interaction.
As a special precaution, you should not take OsteoPhase if you are on the drastic blood thinning medication warfarin/coumadin.
You should also exercise caution when taking aspirin, plavix or other blood-thinning medication while also using OsteoPhase.
If you have any questions about using OsteoPhase or any other supplement while you are using medications of any type, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Can I combine OsteoPhase with some of your other products like FemmePhase, Herbal Boost, or Vital Cell?
Yes, you can take OsteoPhase with either FemmePhase or Herbal Boost for bone health. We suggest that you take 1 capsule of FemmePhase or Herbal Boost for each 2 capsules of OsteoPhase.
It is not necessary to take both Herbal Boost and FemmePhase together as they are very similar formulas using the same herbs.
You can take OsteoPhase with Vital Cell if Vital Cell is your daily herbal supplement. You can take 2 capsules or 1 tablet of Vital Cell with each 2 capsules of OsteoPhase for best results. When you take Vital Cell, you do not need to take Herbal Boost or FemmePhase in combination with OsteoPhase.
You can also call one of our product specialists if you have questions about how best to combine our formulas. The toll-free number for product questions is 1-866-778-2646, ext. 2.
Can a woman take OsteoPhase if she is pregnant or nursing?
No, we do not recommend that a woman take OsteoPhase if she is pregnant or nursing. This is not because OsteoPhase is unsafe but because there have been no safety studies performed on the ingredients in OsteoPhase for pregnancy and nursing.
Can children take OsteoPhase?
OsteoPhase is not recommended for people under the age of 18.
Can I give OsteoPhase to my pet (cat, dog, or horse)?
Yes, however, you should contact a holistic veterinarian for advice on the dose you should give to your pet, since animals vary widely in size and speed of metabolism. Both of those factors determine doses for supplements for animals.
Is OsteoPhase tested for contaminants that could harm my health?
Yes, we regularly test batches of our formulas to make sure they meet strict quality control guidelines recommended by government regulatory agencies.
Are there any side effects from taking OsteoPhase?
OsteoPhase does not cause drowsiness or make a person sleepy. It also does not contain any stimulants that might cause jitteriness or lack of sleep.
What do I do if I think taking OsteoPhase is causing me discomfort?
The most common discomforts experienced by a tiny percentage of people when taking any vitamin, mineral, or herbal formula are digestive upset or very mild allergic reactions such as skin itching or irritability.
These minor discomforts usually disappear by taking a lower dose or by taking the supplement with meals.
If you should experience discomfort when taking OsteoPhase and it does not go away with these suggestions, then discontinue use and contact our product specialist for further recommendations at 1-866-778-2646, ext 2. If we cannot determine a way for you to continue use of the product to gain its benefits, then we will arrange for a full refund for you.
