Many epidemiological studies have been conducted demonstrating that high isoflavone intake has bone-sparing effects. Research suggests that genistein exerts its effect by managing the metabolic imbalance in bone tissue induced by ovarian hormone depletion, an important fact since the primary type of osteoporosis affects postmenopausal women. Genistein is a phytoestrogen that acts as a mild SERM (selective estrogen receptor modulator) which may positively regulate bone cell metabolism without serious side effects. The genistein aglycone in Osteoben is from a non-soy plant source. - See more at: http://catalog.designsforhealth.com/Osteoben#sthash.8lJK8i5L.dpuf

MBPs are derived from the whey portion of milk protein, therefore Osteoben™ should be well-tolerated by anyone with allergies/sensitivities to lactose or casein. The protein components in MBP are unlikely to present any increased risk of allergy for milk allergic subjects or of cross-reactivity for other allergic subjects. Those with actual whey allergies/sensitivities should consult their physician before taking this product.
