Supporting Bone Growth With OsteoPhase And Herbal Boost


I’m currently taking OsteoPhase and want to know about taking your Herbal Boost and Vital Cell. Are these only short term-usage supplements? The information on Herbal Boost says to use the formula for about 4 months. I also want to know if I can take these herbs together with my OsteoPhase, or should I take them separately?

Also, my husband recently had a heart attack and is on heart medications, and we are both taking meds for our blood presssure and cholesterol. Please advise.



  1. Dear Arlene,

    Thank you for your note and question. I can see where some confusion might arise. Herbal Boost is used after stroke, heart attack, injury or debilitating illness to promote swift recovery. I usually have clients take Herbal Boost for 3 to 4 months and then switch them over to Vital Cell for long-term, ongoing, daily improvement of the immune and circulatory systems.

    We recommend that you not take Herbal Boost, Vital Cell or OsteoPhase if you are on blood-thinning medications, such as Warfarin or Coumadin, which are often prescribed after heart attack. The concern is that since the supplements improve the quality of blood circulation they may affect the actions of the medications, so they should not be used together.

    Otherwise, the three formulas will not cause problems with other medications you are taking for blood pressure and cholesterol. In fact, they will be helpful for those issues. However, as a safety precaution, you should take any supplements and medications at least two hours apart.

    For osteoporosis, you can take Herbal Boost long-term along with OsteoPhase as it provides important herbs for building bone and enhancing circulation within bone tissues. The ratio should be one capsule of Herbal Boost for each two capsules of OsteoPhase. You do not need to take Herbal Boost and Vital Cell together, but can continue to take Herbal Boost to support bone growth.
