So this product has a very wide range of users everyone from elite athletes to possibly a post menopausal woman who might have osteopenia and wants to prevent osteoporosis.
Our other product is Bio-Density. This is a machine that was specifically designed to help recondition bone density and strength. The inventer, is a scientist named John Jaquish, whose mother had osteoporosis. Today at 80 his mother no longer has the disease. According to Jaquish osteoporosis is a disease where bones are in a deconditioned state. Through Osteo Loading in a very safe and controlled environment Bio Density actually puts significant loads on the bone which actually causes the bone to over a period of time recondition itself as the bones response to the loading is to grow and get stronger.
What is amazing is that 1 out 2 women and one out of four men get osteoporosis. What Dr. Jaquish has proved is that this is disease that can be prevented and also someone with osteoporosis can be reversed by proper and consistent use of Bio-Density.
