Gluten Free Therapeutics Launches Celi-Vites Bone Health

KENNEBUNKPORT, ME--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2014) - Gluten Free Therapeutics, the makers of Celi-Vites (http://www.celivites.com/), a line of scientifically formulated supplements designed specifically for those suffering from the debilitating effects of celiac disease and gluten intolerance, announced today the introduction of its Bone Health supplement. The product launch comes after the recent introduction of Celi-Vites Blood Health and Body Health products.

Leigh Reynolds, company principal and president, says the Bone Health formulation rounds out the product line by addressing one of the most dramatic concerns facing those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance: osteoporosis and osteopenia.

"Bone health is one of the biggest concerns for celiac sufferers, because loss of bone density is a dangerous condition that can affect the quality of life," explained Reynolds. "This product is specially formulated to help restore bone health and complements our other two products. Together the three products create a nutritional powerhouse."

Celi-Vites bone health is made with three key ingredients: vitamin K2, a rarer form of vitamin K than what is found in most vitamins; calcium citrate, a form of calcium that is much easier to absorb that the calcium carbonate found in most vitamins; and aquamin, a calcium source that has been found to be an effective bone builder in a mouse model of osteoporosis. Because 98 percent of adults do not get the recommended daily values of potassium, Celi-Vites bone Health also contains potassium citrate. Finally it contains 1,000 IU of vitamin D.

Dr. Taylor Reynolds, vice president of research and development at Gluten Free Therapeutics and a celiac patient herself, explains how Celi-Vites are formulated to make a real difference to celiac sufferers.

"Bone Health by Celi-Vites contains balanced proportions of calcium, magnesium and potassium citrate as well as 180mcg of Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7)," explained Dr. Reynolds. "We formulated Celi-Vites Bone Health to not only meet strict gluten-free specifications, but also to ensure that it is the absolute best product in its class."

Celi-Vites Bone Health specifications are available at celivites.com.
