Ingredient Type: Mineral

Hydroxyapatite is a naturally occurring mineral that is found in bone tissue and teeth. It is often used as a dietary supplement, including in some protein powders, due to its potential health benefits.

In protein powders, hydroxyapatite may be added as a source of calcium, which is an essential mineral that helps to support bone health and prevent osteoporosis. It is also sometimes used as a natural source of phosphorus, which is another essential mineral that is important for overall health and well-being.

Hydroxyapatite has been extensively studied for its potential therapeutic benefits for various medical conditions, including bone loss, dental health, and wound healing. It is thought to work by promoting the growth of new bone tissue, improving bone density and strength, and reducing inflammation in the body.

Hydroxyapatite is generally considered safe when consumed in recommended amounts.
