- Laksha(Lac)(Laccifer lacca) - Lac is a resin that is rich in natural calcium. Lac is very beneficial for bone mineral density.

- Shuddha Guggulu - Purified (Commiphora mukul) - Guggul is traditionally known as the best herb for cholesterol control. In addition it is very useful for joint health. In combination with Lac, Guggul resin deposits in bone tissue and strengthens them. It promotes bone growth rate
- Hadjod (Cissus quadrangularis) - The Indian name Hadjod literally means "that which joins bones". This is an indigenous medicinal plant grown in India, which helps to increase healing process of fractured bone.
Ancient Ayurveda texts by Bhava Prakasha and Chakra Dutta have recommended Hadjod as a general tonic for bones and especially for those with bone fracture.
It has traditionally been used by bonesetters for external application and as an internal medication. A study on patients with fractured jaw bones, published in Ayu journal - showed that Hadjod helps in accelerating healing of fractured bones and improves bone mobility
- Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna) - Arjuna is the premier herb for heart health and blood circulation. In a study on the osteopotential activity of Arjuna, it was found that
Arjuna increased alkaline phosphatase and calcium release and helped in biomineralization. There was a 15% increase in residual weight in bones by deposition of calcium and phosphate.
- Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) - Ashwagandha is a well known herb that supports the body's anti-inflammatory response. It helps to ease joints and muscles and is an excellent relaxant that supports joint mobility.
