Basic Information On Boniva
Boniva helps reduce bone loss while increasing the mass thereby reducing the probability of bone fractures.

It helps increase the density of bones (which is gradually lost after a certain age) thereby reducing risk of hip fractures and other fractures of the bones. The Boniva drug has the potential to alter the cycle of bone formation and breakdown in the body.
