Bone growth requires adequate amounts of protein and calcium. Calcium phosphate crystals precipitate and attach to a lattice support as bone grows, forming a calcified extracellular matrix. Bone forms in two patterns, compact and trabecular. Compact bone is dense. Trabecular bone is spongy and has many open spaces between supports of calcified lattice. Osteoblasts produce collagen, enzymes, and other proteins that make up the organic portion of the bone matrix

That is, old bone must be replaced by new bone all the time. Think of your bones as a bank account in which you "deposit" and "withdraw" calcium throughout life. Calcium is a mineral that makes bone dense (thick) and strong. During childhood, the teen years and early adulthood you build your bone bank. The skeleton grows and bones become larger, denser, and stronger especially when you practice bone healthy actions.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is necessary to grow, build, and maintain strong bones. It helps your body absorb and use calcium. Vigorous exercise and healthful diet with adequate calcium & vitamin D are essential in achieving sufficient bone mass during the bone adaptation process.

Vitamin D is well known as a hormone involved in mineral metabolism and bone growth. Its most dramatic effect is to facilitate intestinal absorption of calcium, although it also stimulates absorption of phosphate and magnesium ions. In the absence of vitamin D, dietary calcium is not absorbed at all efficiently.It is important to follow your medical professional's advice and not to exceed 2000 IU of vitamin D from diet and/or supplements without a prescription.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin

Glucosamine, a common joint supplement, is one of the building blocks of a major component of cartilage, glycosaminoglycans. The theory is that Glucosamine, if available in high quantities from supplements, will help to stimulate cartilage growth. It is often combined with Chondroitin, another of the cartilage building blocks.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin together help cartilage to re-grow and stay strong and healthy. They restore cartilage tissue, and have some anti-inflammatory abilities. It may take from 2 weeks to 4 months before you see a noticeable improvement because they are 7not pain-killers.

Height Plus

When you are undergoing intense exercises to induce microfractures, complex chemical signals prompt cells called osteoclasts to break down and remove (resorb) old bone, and others called osteoblasts to deposit new bone. Many elements influence remodeling. Among them: weight-bearing, vitamin D, growth factors, prostaglandins, and various hormones, including estrogen, thyroid, parathyroid, and calcitonin.

The usual recommended dosage of glucosamine is 1500 mg in divided doses; and chondroitin is 1200 mg in divided doses.


Bones are richly supplied with blood from periosteal vessels. Bone growth requires adequate amounts of protein and calcium. A multi-vitamin has all the vitamins, proteins, & nutrients that the body needs.
