Supplement Spotlight: sho STRENGTH



Triple protection to strengthen bones, and aid blood circulation.

sho STRENGTH provides men and women with a strong backbone and a healthy heart to tackle all they face each day. Clinically proven, naturally derived vitamin K2 (MenaQ7®), patented milk-basic-protein (MBP®), and vitamin D3 work together to strengthen bones while keeping arteries elastic and blood circulation healthy.



  • Taking vitamin D3 and K2 combo is probably one of the best things you can do to preserve your bone and heart health, because they help shuttle the calcium to the bones and away from the arteries, which keeps the bones strong and the blood vessels elastic, whether the calcium is from your natural food sources or supplementation.
  • Deficiencies in vitamin D and K, which many Westerners suffer due to the unbalanced Western diet and not getting enough sun exposure, could lead to arterial stiffness and calcification, affecting your overall bone strength and cardiovascular flexibility.
  • Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7) has been shown to be the most bioavailable, longest-lasting, and most bioactive form of Vitamin K2. MenaQ7® in sho STRENGTH is the only clinically-proven and patented natural form of vitamin K2 derived from a Japanese health food, natto (fermented soybean), to effectively strengthen bones and inhibit arterial calcification.






About the company

sho supplements are made from scientifically researched, award-winning ingredients from the most reputable suppliers in the US and in Japan, formulated to boost your particular health functions.

Cutting-edge encapsulation technology from Japan packs the most effective and efficient nutrients into petite, sleek, circular gelcaps (Spheri-Gels™) that are easy to swallow and pleasing to the eye.

About the Company
When I setup 100 Bodycare in Shoreditch, London I was determined that it would be socially responsible in every aspect of its operation. I was influenced in doing this by working in developing countries for non-public companies who did not have to maximise their profits for shareholders and were therefore able to develop products that were ethically sourced, healthy, good for the environment and produced safely. I have used this experience to structure the operations of 100 Bodycare and designed this section to demonstrate this to you. It is my objective to increase the social impact of my business every year. Read More
