Feed Your Bones The Very Best
Our bones are truly remarkable — all 200+ of them! They are a living and vital system, designed by nature to renew and regenerate every day. To stay healthy and strong throughout our entire lives, our bones require very specific, balanced daily nutritional support. Bones not only give our bodies structure, strength, and mobility, they also serve as our “mineral storehouse,” help maintain our immune system, and contribute to our overall health in ways never before realized. Now there’s finally a product that works intensely and comprehensively to provide the full spectrum of support your healthy bones and whole body needs.
Inside each capsule of Bone Renewal, you’ll find a three-part blend of powerful bone health ingredients from land and sea, each supported by advanced nutritional science and by centuries of use in traditional cultures around the world: 100% plant-based calcium, magnesium, vitamins D3 and K2, enzymes, trace minerals, and a third category of nutrients not found in any other bone health formula — our rare and vitalizing botanical Synergizers. Highly researched yet never offered in a comprehensive formula, these extraordinary extracts are the “missing links” that enable a whole new dimension of bone health. Unparalleled, complete, and perfectly balanced, Bone Renewal truly lives up to its name!
Bone Renewal is a true reflection of our uncompromising commitment to create the most all-encompassing, preventative, and regenerative bone health supplement possible. Over ten years of research by our founder, Mitchell May, led to the development of Bone Renewal. Each of its 13 nutrients is hand-selected from sustainable water and land-based sources to magnificently capture nature’s inherent nourishment, energy, and restorative powers.
Bio-Active Core Minerals and Vitamins
Calcium and magnesium provide a foundational level of support for our skeletal system, much like masonry and mortar provide an enduring backbone for a strong building. Vitamins D3 and K2 have also been identified as key players in optimal bone health. Bone Renewal’s Bio-Active Core Minerals and Vitamins have been carefully selected for their purity, bioavailability, effectiveness, and safety.

Boron, vanadium, strontium, and silica are needed only in “trace” amounts, but this doesn’t mean they have a less important role to play in bone health. Think of all these co-factor nutrients as members of your body’s orchestra. While there might be more violins than harps, for example, you need each instrument to make a genuine bone-healthy harmony. Our Bio-Active Co-Factors are equally essential to the natural process of maintaining bone health and to the vital, life-long process of bone regeneration.

BoronBoron Organically Grown Nutrient
Boron is proven to be essential to the maintenance of healthy bones and joints. This trace mineral promotes bone growth, guards vitamin D levels, and plays an indispensable role in calcium metabolism. We use two forms of boron to ensure its optimal absorption and utilization in our bodies — our organically grown boron made with whole foods, and a natural boron chelated with brown rice protein.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/boron_thesynergycompany.jpg
Calcium (Plant-Based)Calcium (Plant-Based)
Calcium plays a huge role in maintaining our health. It regulates our heartbeat, fuels our nervous system, and supports our ligaments, tendons, and skin. As well, our teeth and bones are mostly comprised of calcium. Given the vitally important role calcium plays, it’s essential that we supplement our bodies with the very best calcium available. In a plant, calcium is naturally bound with other minerals, vitamins, proteins, and phytonutrients. This nutritional entity contains a “code,” if you will, that tells the body it is safe to absorb and directs the body to store the calcium where it belongs. Our formulas utilize only plant-based calcium, sourced from either Icelandic red algae or a combination of Icelandic red algae and Japanese white sesame seeds.
Icelandic red algae is a highly nutritious and beautiful red sea vegetable that absorbs pure calcium, magnesium, and 74 valuable trace minerals and phytonutrients from the pure, icy waters of Iceland. Ours is both sustainably harvested and fully certified by the European Organic Trust Program. Our unique red algae contains an amazing 33% calcium by weight and is a highly bioavailable mineral source.
Heirloom sesame seeds, cultivated for centuries in Japan, contain nature’s perfect mineral profile — a natural blend of calcium, magnesium and trace minerals essential for healthy joints, bones, heart and immune system. Our sesame seeds are prepared using a natural and traditional fermentation process that further enhances the bioavailability of the calcium and other naturally occurring nutrients.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_calcium.jpg
Cissus ExtractCissus Extract Cissus quadrangularis
Cissus is an ancient herbal remedy used for over 2,000 years in Africa and in Ayurvedic Indian medicine. Its traditional nickname is “bone-knitter” and we believe that it’s aptly named! Scientific research of cissus extract indicates it positively influences healthy bone generation and bone strengthening. In clinical research with humans, it revealed its gift in promoting healthy bone mineral density and calcium uptake into the bones as well as its rich antioxidant profile. Our cissus is hand-gathered and sustainably wild-harvested just for Synergy. It is SuperPure, meaning it has been extracted with only the purest processes. We’ve included the full amount of cissus extract proven to be safe and effective in scientific studies.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_cissusextract.jpg
Icelandic Red AlgaeIcelandic Red Algae Palmaria palmata
This highly nutritious and beautiful red sea vegetable absorbs pure calcium, magnesium, and 74 valuable trace minerals and phytonutrients from the pure, icy waters of Iceland. Sustainably harvested at the end of its natural growth cycle when it is saturated with plant-bound minerals, our red algae is fully certified by the European Organic Trust Program and low temperature dried for peak nutrient preservation. With an amazing 33% calcium by weight, Icelandic red algae is a highly bioavailable source of plant-based calcium joined in a synergistic multi-mineral matrix for optimal efficacy.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_icelandicredalgae.jpg
Magnesium, just like calcium, is not only essential for optimal bone health, but is also required for over 300 bodily processes. It is considered a key mineral in metabolism, yet is frequently found to be deficient in the average American diet. Along with serving as a foundational mineral in our bones, magnesium is involved in energy production, nervous system balance, blood sugar control, and much more! Our formulas contain magnesium sourced from Dead Sea Concentrate, Brown Rice Chelated Dead Sea Concentrate, Icelandic Red Algae — or a combo of all three!
Dead Sea Concentrate: Since ancient times, people have sought out the Dead Sea for its profound, health-giving properties. The “secret” to its healing powers resides in the minerals found exclusively in its waters. In fact, 12 of the minerals found in the Dead Sea cannot be found in any other place on earth. From this most ancient and mineral-rich body of water on our planet, we sustainably filter and concentrate our bioactive magnesium. To further enhance the absorption of our naturally occurring magnesium, a portion of our Dead Sea bioactive magnesium is bonded or “chelated” with brown rice proteins. This extra-special process is one more way that we insure the bioavailability of our formula.
Icelandic Red Algae: This highly nutritious and beautiful red sea vegetable absorbs pure calcium, magnesium, and 74 valuable trace minerals and phytonutrients from the pure, icy waters of Iceland. Sustainably harvested at the end of its natural growth cycle when it is saturated with plant-bound minerals, our red algae is fully certified by the European Organic Trust Program and low-temperature dried for peak nutrient preservation.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/94_magnesium_thesynergycompany.jpg
Phytase EnzymePhytase Enzyme
Enzymes are tiny but powerful activators that play a critical role in the complex chemistry of human health. Our plant-derived phytase enzyme ensures the breakdown of naturally-occurring phytic acid, an acid found in many of the foods we eat. This acid can inhibit absorption of core minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Phytase liberates phosphorus and other minerals from phytic acid to support healthy bone renewal. Our phytase enzymes are specially grown, purified, and approved for use in organic foods.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_phytaseenzyme.jpg
Sargassum Algae ExtractSargassum Algae Extract Sargassum horneri
Based on several decades of Japanese scientific and medical research, this rare and valuable seaweed extract has shown a matchless capacity to support the natural bone renewal and regeneration processes. This pure extract has been made available solely to The Synergy Company as a result of the deep relationships Mitchell, our founder, has developed in Japan as a researcher, teacher, and healer. In fact, Synergy is the first and only company outside of Japan to be granted use of the truly authentic sargassum algae extract, made exclusively by a Japanese research firm. Our sargassum is always harvested sustainably; each batch is fully tested (both in Japan and as part of our final formulation) for heavy metals, radiation, and other microbiological concerns to ensure its absolute purity and safety.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_sargassumalgaeextract.jpg
Silica (Bamboo)Silica (Bamboo)
Studies show that supplementing with ample amounts of natural silica supports bone health and further enhances the benefits of calcium and vitamin D utilization in the body. Calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus form the mineral glue, lending strength and density to your bones. Connecting these minerals into a beautiful and intricate lattice are organic protein fibers, particularly collagen, that keep your bones springy and supple, not brittle. Silica is known to be integral to healthy collagen cross-linking, so that your bones can flow with the movement of your body.
Our 100% plant-based silica is hand collected and naturally extracted from the sap — called tabasheer — of a very unique species of bamboo grasses.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_silica.jpg
Research shows that supplementing with small, safe amounts of strontium can help support healthy bone formation and bone strength. Balance and safety are topmost concerns for us, which is why we never use chemically derived strontium salt isolates in high dosages. Our strontium comes from Icelandic Red Algae, where it is naturally buffered and bonded with magnesium and trace minerals — nature’s way of delivering safe and balanced nutrition. Sustainably harvested at the end of its natural growth cycle when it is saturated with plant-bound minerals, our red algae is fully certified by the European Organic Trust Program and low temperature dried for peak nutrient preservation.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/strontium_thesynergycompany.jpg
Tabasheer (Bamboo) ExtractTabasheer (Bamboo) Extract Bambusa vulgaris
Tabasheer, the world's richest plant source of genuine natural silica, comes from the beautiful pearl colored sap of bamboo plants. Our bodies need silica to produce collagen, which keeps our bones, ligaments, cartilage, and tendons supple, and our joints flexible. Tabasheer bamboo silica has been used for centuries by cultures around the world to help maintain healthy bones, hair, skin, teeth, and nails. It is also known to enhance the function of calcium, magnesium, boron and other minerals that are essential for bone development and overall health. We use a sustainable and wild-gathered bamboo tabasheer, which we filter to ensure its purity and support for optimal bone health.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_tabasheerbambooextract.jpg
Research shows that supplementing with small, safe amounts of strontium can help support healthy bone formation and bone strength. Our vanadium comes from Icelandic Red Algae, where it is naturally buffered and bonded with magnesium and trace minerals — nature’s way of delivering safe and balanced nutrition. Sustainably harvested at the end of its natural growth cycle when it is saturated with plant-bound minerals, our red algae is fully certified by the European Organic Trust Program and low temperature dried for peak nutrient preservation.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/vanadium_thesynergycompany.jpg
Vitamin D3Vitamin D3 Organically Grown Nutrient
Scarcely a week goes by without the release of another study showing the far-reaching health benefits of vitamin D3. One of vitamin D3’s most critical health roles is in bone health, where it regulates calcium/magnesium concentrations and guides calcium directly to the bones. Without sufficient vitamin D3, our bones simply cannot be healthy and strong. Not to mention our immune systems, brains, eyes, and more — ample vitamin D3 is necessary for the health of all these as well. Although our body manufactures D3 from sunlight exposure, today’s overwhelming research shows that we no longer get enough D3, making supplementation of D3 essential.
Our vitamin D is made through our special fermentation process using organic vegetables, fruits, and other natural food sources. This creates an organically “grown” vitamin that is naturally bound in a synergy of beneficial cofactors and whole-food compounds. By taking your supplements in food-form, you are getting your daily nutrients just as nature intended for optimal benefit. Plus they are super gentle and can be taken on an empty stomach if so desired. Vitamins and minerals aren’t found as synthetic ”isolates” in nature. And neither are they in our vitamins!https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/156_vitamind3_thesynergycompany.jpg
Vitamin K1 and K2Vitamin K1 and K2
Recent scientific studies confirm that both forms of vitamin K are critical to bone health, cardiovascular health, blood clotting, and overall wellness. Along with vitamin D, vitamin K holds the job of directing calcium traffic, keeping it in the bone where it belongs and out of your blood vessels where it may cause calcified plaques. Vitamin K is also integral to the creation of osteocalcin, an essential bone hormone, and to the development of a myriad of small proteins that make up the microscopic world inside your bones.
Our certified organic vitamin K1 is made through our special fermentation process using organic vegetables, fruits, and other natural food sources. This creates a vitamin that is naturally bound in a synergy of beneficial cofactors and whole-food compounds. Our K2 vitamin is exclusively made for us in Japan, where it is derived from non-GMO natto, a wholesome traditional, fermented food used for centuries to promote good health.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/vitamink_thesynergycompany.jpg
Wasabi Rhizome/LeafWasabi Rhizome/Leaf Wasabia japonica
You may only know of wasabi for its fiery zing as a popular Japanese condiment. But genuine wasabi is actually a wondrous health-promoting vegetable that has been studied by Japanese herbalists since the 10th century and now in modern times by prominent scientists. Like our watercress and cruciferous sprouts, it is loaded with glucosinolates, precursors for the DNA-supportive compounds known as isothiocyanates. Genuine wasabi is indigenous to cool mountain streams of the remote northern islands of Japan. It takes 18 months for our sustainably harvested wasabi to mature. After harvest, the plants are freeze-dried and tested to ensure they retain the highest concentrations of their active detoxifying compounds.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/wasabi_thesynergycompany.jpg
White Sesame SeedsWhite Sesame Seeds Sesamum indicum
Cultivated for centuries in Japan, our heirloom seeds contain nature’s perfect mineral profile — a natural blend of calcium, magnesium and trace minerals essential for healthy joints, bones, heart and immune system. Our sesame seeds are prepared using a natural and traditional fermentation process that further enhances the bioavailability of the calcium and other naturally occurring nutrients.https://www.thesynergycompany.com/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_whitesesameseeds.jpg
WHY CHOOSE BONE RENEWAL™?
Bone Renewal’s plant-based ingredients are better absorbed.
Our bodies know that healthy and pure whole food is life itself. That’s why you won’t find “rocks,” chemicals, or isolates in our products. Bone Renewal’s all natural and plant-based ingredients are easy for your body to assimilate. Following in accordance with nature is always the healthier approach, not only for our bones, but also for our whole selves.
Bone Renewal is uniquely designed to support natural bone growth.
Your bones are ingeniously designed to renew and regenerate through a wondrous, two-part system called bone remodeling. In fact, you typically replace 10% of your bone mass each year. In bone remodeling, old bone is shed and new bone is grown in a process that continues throughout your adult lifetime. Yet, healthy remodeling can’t occur without regular replenishment of an array of highly specific nutrients. Bone Renewal's unique, bountiful blend of plant-origin minerals, vitamins, co-factors and botanical Synergizers work in concert to provide the deepest level of support for healthy bone-renewing activity.
Bone Renewal’s blend of ingredients nourishes vital body processes.
Bones do so much. Not only do they give us structure, strength, protection, and mobility, they also help supply our red and white blood cells through their marrow. That means the very core of our immune system lies within our bones! Even the heart and brain depend on our bones, as these organs require hundreds of minerals to function. Our bones serve as our “mineral storehouse” by warehousing and delivering these life-supporting minerals. For all these reasons, Bone Renewal delivers a bounty of critical nutrients to insure our good health, well-being, and longevity.
Bone Renewal contains an exclusive blend of botanical Synergizers.
Bone Renewal is a breakthrough in bone supplementation based on Mitchell May’s unique healing experience, scientific research, and deep knowledge of traditional medicines. Synergizing the core ingredients of Bone Renewal are four unique botanicals, each prized for their profound role in bone health. You won’t find these rare botanicals in comparable purity, potency, and quantity in any other bone health formula.
Bone Renewal is designed for all seasons of your life.
Bone Renewal is a deeply nourishing formula for all 200+ bones in your body. Because it's a fully researched and completely balanced formula that deeply nourishes and maintains your body’s own natural processes, it will support your bone health through all the phases of your adult life — from young adulthood long into your elder years.

What is the best way to take and benefit from Bone Renewal?
For optimum bone health support, we recommend 5 capsules of Bone Renewal every day — two capsules with breakfast or lunch and three capsules with dinner. We absorb more of the minerals and nutrients our bones need when we take them along with a meal. It is also best to divide them up into two serving times for maximum benefits. It turns out that according to recent research, we do more bone regeneration during sleep than any other time of day. So we want to be sure we have all the nutrients we need for our bones to be able to regenerate and renew themselves during the night while we are sleeping (and that’s why we suggest taking your last serving of the day of Bone Renewal with dinner).
What is the best form of calcium to take?
There are essentially just two forms of calcium: inorganic, found in soil and rocks and then there is organic calcium. Unlike almost all other supplements, which use inorganic rock-hard calcium, Bone Renewal’s calcium comes exclusively from plant-based calcium. In fact, we cultivate and harvest two plant-based forms. One is from the sea: a calcium and mineral-rich red algae that grows off the far reaches of the coast of Iceland; and another is from land: a rare white sesame seed that is cultivated for Synergy in Japan where it has a long tradition of use for bone health. During the growing of the unique Icelandic red algae and Japanese white sesame seeds, they naturally transform the calcium, magnesium, minerals, and the many other naturally occurring, beneficial co-factors from the sea and land and bind them together to make a highly bioavailable and beneficial calcium/magnesium mineral product. At Synergy, we only use plant-based calcium because it is complete and whole and in the exact form nature intended for our bodies. Our goal at Synergy is first and foremost to provide the purest and most effective supplements possible to support you and your family’s health and well-being.
Why doesn’t Bone Renewal supply 100% of the entire recommended daily intake (RDI) of calcium?
For a very good reason! Our bodies require more calcium per day than any other mineral. We have more calcium in our bodies by weight than any other mineral. The average amount of calcium currently recommended by medical science is between 1,000 – 1,250 milligrams per day. The trick is finding the balance we need with our calcium intake. If we don’t get enough calcium, our bodies and bones will suffer. If we get too much calcium, our bodies could also suffer. Studies have shown that nearly all people in developed countries consume about 400-500 milligrams on average per day of calcium from their diet (calcium is in green vegetables, dairy products, beans, seeds, and etc.). Bone Renewal was designed so that you’d get the ideal amount of calcium between your diet and supplementation.
Should I be taking a daily multi-vitamin/mineral product and other supplements along with Bone Renewal?
If you are seeking optimum health, well-being, and longevity — yes! Our bodies are a wonderful creation and they were designed to thrive for a very long time, but only if they are given everything they need to be healthy, strong, resilient, and happy! The best way to give our bodies and minds what they need is through a combination of eating a genuinely healthy and balanced diet, and supplementing daily with the very best and most effective organic dietary supplements possible. As we all know, we don’t all eat the most healthy and balanced diets day in and day out. As such, we can stay more balanced by taking a variety of organic dietary supplements every day. While Bone Renewal is the most comprehensive bone health supplement in the market today, that does not mean we don’t also need additional and unique nutrients for our overall health and well-being. Accordingly, for the most optimum health building and health maintenance program, we have found that Synergy’s 3-fold core wellness products of Bone Renewal, Vita•Min•Herb, and Pure Synergy to be the most powerful and complete supplement program ever designed. In fact, all three of these were researched and designed to be 100% compatible and safe when taken together. In simple terms, these three products together will provide a perfect foundation for supporting your health and wellbeing.
What else can I do to help my bones?
The good news is there are lots of things you can do! First and foremost, nourish your body with the best nutrients possible. You can do this by simply eating more fresh fruits and vegetables every day, along with good quality proteins. In addition, by taking Bone Renewal every day, along with a good multi-vitamin/mineral organic supplement, you will be both feeding your bones and body with what they need and building up your nutrient reservoirs. Lastly, one of the most important things is to engage in some form of regular exercise. A combination of walking daily, some weight bearing (lifting light weights), balancing exercises (yoga, tai chi, and etc.) will do wonders for your bones, your body, and your mind!
What is strontium and why do some company’s products have so much in it?
We are glad you asked as there is a lot of confusion floating around on this subject. We believe that too much of a good thing can be a very bad thing when it comes to strontium. A little bit of strontium (5mg) is a very safe amount to have in a bone support formula, especially if it is the natural type that’s found in Bone Renewal (derived from red Icelandic algae itself). Our bodies have a small amount of beneficial strontium circulating in them all the time. This trace mineral has been identified as being important for healthy bones. However, it has recently become fashionable for companies to offer supplements with inorganic strontium in serving sizes that contain as much as 150mg, 300mg or even 600mg of strontium. There is nothing normal or natural about this quantity! In fact, this much inorganic strontium has the potential to actually cause your bones to become more brittle and therefore, more prone to fractures. Too much strontium also competes with calcium absorption, the exact opposite of what we want to accomplish, and it can end up replacing the calcium. There is a very big difference between “hard” bones and “healthy” bones, and our goal is healthy bones. You should only take separate strontium supplements under the direction of your doctor to ensure your safety and well-being.
Bone Renewal contains whole-food vitamin K1 and K2 and I’m on blood-thinning medication, Is it okay for me to take it?
Vitamins K1 and K2 are found in abundance in many leafy green foods, hard cheeses, and fermented products and are considered essential for proper blood clotting, maintaining healthy arteries, bone health, along with many other beneficial health functions. However, for those people who are on some kind of special blood-thinning medications, you should always check with your doctor before taking any supplements.

Why are there so many different standards for what is considered safe for these various compounds and elements—isn’t there one federal standard?
Perhaps surprisingly, but no, there is not one single acceptable federal standard for safety when it comes to microbes, heavy metals, and radiation. Various scientific and reputable organizations around the world, including the FDA, USDA, EPA, WHO, and others, have studied these topics and their health implications. Subsequently, many of them have issued their recommendations for safe ranges. It is up to each manufacturer to determine which established standards they will follow. The Synergy Company has done an exhaustive analysis of ALL of these organizations’ guidance and set our safety standards at the strictest, safest levels in the industry.
What are the actual numbers & ranges associated with the various standards listed on the Certificate of Compliance?
For more information about the standards established by each of these organizations, please ask. We would be happy to direct you to the websites where some of this information is available. Each organization or agency has established its own set of standards based on their analysis of the contaminant. The Synergy Company has taken all of the guidance into consideration and selected the most conservative, safe standards for each testing parameter.
Are these tests listed on the Certificate of Compliance performed on every lot?
Yes, our Quality Assurance Program at Synergy mandates that we perform all of these tests listed on every lot of product to ensure absolute quality and safety for you. Not only do we test every lot of our finished products, but we also test every lot of each of our incoming ingredients that go into these products for many of these elements and contaminants. This type of extensive testing is very rare in the industry and shows our dedication to leading the way when it comes to the highest quality standards.
