Gynovite® Plus is a complete nutritional supplement formulated for postmenopausal complaints. This
supplement emphasized magnesium over calcium. Based on a review of the published literature, the
information available does not support an important role of calcium in osteoporosis.

In laboratory animals studied, calcium deficiency causes osteo-malacia (soft bone), not osteoporosis
(porous bone). However magnesium deficiency resulted in osteoporosis(1). Countries with the highest
consumption of calcium had the highest incidence of hip fracture. The lowest hip fracture rates in post
menopausal women were observed in countries with daily calcium intake as low as 400-500 mg(1). Several
other nutrients play an important role in bone integrity and these nutrients are in Gynovite®.

An increase in bone density was observed in 19 post-menopausal women following supplementation with
Gynovite®(1). Compared to a 0.7% increase in 7 women not on Gynovite®, a increase of 11% was observed
in the 19 women followed for the same period of time less than one year. Repeated bone density measure
following 2 years on Gynovite® showed a further increase in bone density (1). Fifteen of the 19 women were
below fracture threshold at the beginning of the study. Within one year only 7 of them still had values below
that threshold (2).
