Similar to most nutrients, the body can utilize calcium much more effectively when it is paired with its natural co-factors such as magnesium and other trace minerals.
The most common calcium supplement today is derived from limestone (calcium carbonate). You don’t eat rocks as part of your balanced diet, so why would you choose to supplement your bone health nutritional needs with limestone?
The calcium complex in Bone Strength Take Care™ is derived from a special form of plant called Algas Calcareas (AlgaeCal®) that is harvested from the pristine shores of a protected national reserve park in South America. Much like the vegetables from an organic garden, the algae is harvested live and then cold processed to retain its nutritional value.
Calcium must be completely dissolved in order to be absorbed. The plant-based calcium found in Bone Strength Take Care™ is porous, which dramatically increases the calcium’s surface area. Stomach acid can then come into greater contact with the calcium, making it easy to dissolve.
In addition to the whole-food source of calcium and magnesium, we have also added other bone-nourishing nutrients to complete the food complex.
Vitamin K is an essential co-factor in calcium absorption and retention. Human cell proteins that don’t get enough Vitamin K can’t hold onto calcium, causing this critical nutrient to drift away from the bone. Vitamin K2 (MK-7), sourced from fermented whole food, gently redirects “lost” calcium back into the bone bank.
Vitamin D3 completes the complex. Numerous studies have found that Vitamin D aids bone support and function.
