According to the U.S. Surgeon General, "by 2020, half of all American citizens over 50 will be at risk for fractures from osteoporoses and low bone mass if no immediate action is taken. "Calcium Essentials provides one of the most absorbable forms of Calcium plus other complementary nutrients to help prevent bone loss.*
LactoCalcium provides Calcium, plus the minerals Phosphorus and Magnesium, entirely food-based from milk to ensure better bone mineralization. Milk is one of the richest and most bioavailable sources of Calcium and other bone-supporting minerals. Calcium Essentials derives 50 % of its Calcium from this all natural "super-absorbable" milk Calcium that helps prevent bone loss.
Calcium Citrate is more absorbable than other common forms of Calcium. Minerals, like Calcium Citrate, are ionic compounds and better absorbed in acidic environments. As such, it can be taken anytime during the day, even on an empty stomach.
Low Serum levels of Magnesium have been found to result in low serum levels of Calcium, which affects proper bone growth. Vitamin D, a fat soluble vitamin, assists with Calcium absorption from the digestive tract. Together, Magnesium, vitamin D and natural Phosphorus from milk enhances the absorption of calcium and provide the natural co-factors needed for strong bones.
Calcium Essentials is potency-enhanced with FutureBiotics BioAccelerators. Clinically-proven Bioperine (piper nigrum extract) improves nutrient bioavailability, while our proprietary natural compound of Ginger extract, Trikatu, super-potent Digezyme and Lactospore boosts digestion and absorption.
Calcium & Bone Support Action Plan
Calcium is widely known to help build strong bones and healthy teeth. It is also an essential nutrient for the healthy function of the heart, nerves, blood and muscles. Stored in the bones, if the body does not get enough calcium through the diet, it will take calcium from bones to use for other functions. Over time, this can reduce bone strength and lead to osteoporosis, a potentially crippling disease characterized by fragile, thin bones Adequate dietary calcium is essential for good health.
