1. Tell me about ZyCal Bioceuticals Healthcare Company, Inc.
ZyCal Bioceuticals Healthcare Company, Inc. is a nutritional supplement company that specializes in bone and joint health. ZyCal is the first nutritional supplement company to develop, manufacture, distribute, license and sell a platform of bone and joint health products (Ostinol™ branded products) containing Cyplexinol® — Nature’s BMP-Complex, a patented bio-active protein complex with proven clinical success.
2. What makes ZyCal’s products unique?
The nutritional supplements developed, marketed and sold by ZyCal contain Cyplexinol® — Nature’s BMP-Complex, a unique, patented, bio-active complex of bone and cartilage stimulating proteins that are clinically proven to stimulate cells that grow bone and cartilage tissue, a natural process known as osteoinduction. Cyplexinol® — Nature’s BMP-Complex is the first ingredient to contain a specialized form of collagen and its associated proteins including Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMPs). Cyplexinol® — Nature’s BMP-Complex. This complex is supported by over 40 years of research and over 25 years of clinical use.
3. What is osteoinduction, and why is Cyplexinol® — Nature's BMP-Complex important for good bone and joint health?
Osteoinduction is a natural bone and cartilage forming process that occurs by stimulating and transforming key cells in the body (known as mesenchymal stem cells) into osteoblasts (bone forming cells) and chondrocytes (cartilage forming cells). During the formative years, the body’s natural ability to create bone and cartilage is at its greatest. In patients with chronic bone and/or joint conditions this natural homeostasis is lost. Cyplexinol® — Nature’s BMP-Complex – the active ingredient in all Ostinol™ brand products – is the only ingredient capable of activating the tissue-growing process again, bringing the body back into natural homeostasis. Ostinol™ brand products, powered by Cyplexinol®, in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, are formulated to contribute towards long term bone and joint wellness.
4. What makes Cyplexinol® — Nature's BMP-Complex such a unique ingredient?
Cyplexinol™ is a patented protein complex derived through ZyCal’s proprietary cold extraction process. Biochemically, Cyplexinol® is comprised of a specialized collagen complex with bio-active proteins and growth factors, known as Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMPs) bound. It is this entire complex which acts uniquely in the body, binding to receptors in the stomach for rapid onset of action.
This complex was first discovered in the early 1960’s by Dr. Marshall Urist, an orthopedic surgeon at UCLA, who discovered that these proteins stimulate cells responsible for growing bone (osteoblasts) and cartilage (chondrocytes). Since this discovery there have been over 15,000 studies published supporting both the entire complex and the individual bio-active proteins (BMPs) in their role of growing bone and cartilage tissue, both as a surgical complex and oral nutritional ingredient.
5. Do other products on the market contain Cyplexinol® or can grow bone and cartilage tissue?
No other ingredient has the powerful proteins and tissue growing capabilities exhibited by Cyplexinol®. ZyCal Bioceuticals does license Cyplexinol® as an ingredient.
6. Which bone and joint health supplements contain Cyplexinol® — Nature's BMP-Complex?
ZyCal Bioceuticals, Inc. has developed a platform of nutritional bone and joint supplements containing Cyplexinol® — Nature’s BMP-Complex. ZyCal’s flagship product is Ostinol™ Bone and Cartilage Stimulating Proteins – the first supplement which contains Cyplexinol® proven to grow new bone and cartilage tissue while helping fight inflammation. Other products which contain Cyplexinol® are Pro-stiminol® Osteoinductive Bone Supplement Kit – for maximum bone health, Chondrinol® our Osteoinductive Joint Supplement – for joint health.
7. What is Ostinol™?

8. What is Pro-stiminol®?
Pro-stiminol® Kit is a dual action system containing two nutritional supplements which are functionally involved in bone formation. It contains Ostinol™ to grow bone matrix, the tissue structure of bone that calcium binds to and fortifies. The second supplement, Tricalcidin-3® ES, is a blend of three organic calciums plus vitamin D-3 and magnesium to fortify and strengthen bone tissue or matrix.
The Pro-stiminol® Osteoinductive Bone Supplement System is scientifically formulated to mirror natural bone formation – first you build bone matrix using Ostinol™ Bone and Cartilage Stimulating Proteins, then you fortify it with Tricalcidin-3®. It is always recommended that you continue to follow the advice of your physician, lead an active lifestyle and perform weight bearing exercise. Pro-stiminol® Osteoinductive Bone Supplement System can help you achieve maximum bone health benefits.
9. Why do I need Pro-stiminol® when I already take a calcium supplement? How is it different?
Bone loss is a condition ranging from mild loss of bone to full-blown osteoporosis, which is not just the loss of mineral, but of bone matrix, a living structural tissue. Calcium supplements and vitamins only add mineral to existing bone matrix (bone structure), but do not stimulate the bone-building cells responsible for making the bone matrix. The dual action system of Pro-stiminol® provides additional benefits beyond calcium and vitamin-D alone by first activating stem cells to become bone-building cells (known as osteoblasts) which make bone matrix (bone tissue). This bone matrix provides a surface to which the calcium can bind and fortify the bone.
The Pro-stiminol® Osteoinductive Bone Supplement System is scientifically formulated to mirror natural bone formation – first you build bone matrix using Ostinol™ Bone and Cartilage Stimulating Proteins, then you fortify it with Tricalcidin-3® ES. It is always recommended that you continue to follow the advice of your physician, lead an active lifestyle and perform weight bearing exercise. Pro-stiminol® Osteoinductive Bone Supplement System can help you achieve maximum bone health benefits.
10. What is Chondrinol®?
Chondrinol® brings together the combined effectiveness of three nutritional supplements in one tablet. Chondrinol® contains Cyplexinol® — Nature’s BMP-Complex, to stimulate cartilage growth, blended with a therapeutically tested amount of glucosamine and chondroitin to lubricate and nourish joints for comfort and movement.
For maximum joint health many people combine Ostinol™ with Chondrinol® to increase the bio-active proteins and cartilage growth activity. Using both Ostinol™ and Chondrinol® is a safe and effective way to achieve maximum joint health.
11. Why do I need Chondrinol® when I already take glucosamine and chondroitin? How is it different?
Breakdown of cartilage causes stiffness, pain and loss of joint movement, and is often referred to as “wear-and-tear” or osteoarthritis. Glucosamine and chondroitin alone do nothing to stimulate the cells responsible for building cartilage. Chondrinol® contains Cyplexinol® — Nature’s BMP-Complex plus glucosamine and chondroitin. Chondrinol® performs beyond glucosamine and chondroitin alone by not only naturally lubricating joints but activating key stem cells that produce new healthy cartilage – the most vital function required to maintain joint balance (homeostasis). Chondrinol®, with Cyplexinol® — Nature’s BMP-Complex, is the first osteoinductive joint supplement available. It is always recommended that you continue to follow the advice of your physician, lead an active lifestyle and perform regular physical activity. Chondrinol® can help you achieve maximum joint health benefits.
12. How safe are Ostinol™ brand products?
Ostinol™ brand products have been used by thousands of healthcare professionals, patients and consumers for nearly 10 years safely with great clinical success. The bio-active proteins in Ostinol™ have been extensively studied over the last 40 years and used by orthopedic surgeons for over 25 years, safely and effectively to grow bone and cartilage tissue.
13. How effective are Ostinol™ brand products?
