I’m still in the midst of testing my theory that homemade bone broth is a crucial part of the ultimate anti cellulite diet.
In addition to drinking broth every day with my breakfast, I recently added a mineral supplement that I believe might be uniquely formulated to target cellulite (my cellulite, at least —yours could be different).
Dr. Ron’s Ultra-Pure mineral supplement is not like any other mineral supplement I’ve ever come across. It is made from the raw bones of grass-fed New Zealand cattle and contains absolutely no additives, binders, or fillers.
Mineral supplements made from whole bone contain microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate (MCHC). Naturopathic doctors, such as Dr. Ron, claim MCHC is the best source of bioavailable calcium, meaning it is readily absorbed by the body. In addition to calcium, MCHC also contains the full spectrum of trace minerals that comprise healthy bone. This makes sense considering MCHC is made from healthy bone.
One of the reasons I believe Dr. Ron’s mineral supplement could be uniquely effective for cellulite is because it contains 20 percent of Type 1 collagen protein, the predominant collagen in skin and bone.1 Collagen is an important element in healthy connective tissue and therefore a key ingredient in cellulite recovery. I like that I know exactly where the collagen in this product comes from and that it is a natural source.
The reason I believe this supplement is uniquely formulated to target my cellulite is because it contains boron. Boron is a trace mineral, meaning small amounts are required by the body. Macrominerals (the ones needed in large amounts, such as calcium and magnesium) tend to get most of the attention, but trace minerals are likely just as important even though they are needed in smaller amounts.
If you’ve been following along here at The Cellulite Investigation, you know that we received a hot lead from Hakala Research Laboratories about the ability of boron to detoxify fluoride from the body. Charles Hakala told me boron might be even more effective than iodine at displacing fluoride (Hakala labs specializes in iodine testing). No one knows what other trace minerals could be effective at detoxing fluoride, which is known to accumulate in bone and connective tissue. I am confident that Dr. Ron’s product contains all the trace minerals needed for healthy bones because, I repeat, it’s a whole food source made from healthy bones.
I’ve been taking Dr. Ron’s Cal 1000- Mag 500 Hydroxyapatite Plus in varying amounts over the last few weeks. I did experience some surprising symptoms as time went on, but they could have been unrelated to the supplement. I want to observe my body’s reaction for awhile longer before I write more about that.

I’m still figuring out how to set up our forum, but feel free to come over and say hi while I’m working on it. It’s always nice to hear from my fellow cellulite investigators!
