Calcium Supplement for Combatting Osteoporosis

This unique calcium health formula, containing minerals and vitamins, is specially formulated to help reduce the onset of osteoporosis in women. Calcium is the primary building block for teeth and bones. It also plays an important role during recovery from illnesses, and bone injuries. In this formula, magnesium and vitamin D3 are added to facilitate the absorption and use of Calcium by the body. Vitamin B6 serves for the interlinking of collagen fibers in the cartilages and bones, which within these networks of mineral crystals, calcium is later on deposited. Vitamin D3 is also necessary for maintaining the mineral body balance, influencing the metabolism of calcium in the small Intestine and therefore the build-up of minerals to the bone tissues. Vitamin K1 plays an important role in the metabolism of calcium, or take-up of Calcium in bone tissues. Vitamin C performs many functions within the body. With regard to reducing the risk of Osteoporosis, its role is important in the creation of collagen. In addition, this high technology formula supports the correct functioning of cardiac and circulatory activities, as well as red blood formations. It also assists in times of stress, increased physical and psychological strain, when wounds are healing, when suffering from a cold and when the body is fighting an infection. Furthermore, we have incorporated 14 Amino Acids, the "Building Blocks of Life", into this "Highly Specialized Health Formula".

The reasoning for the formulation of this extraordinary effervescent product is the logic behind the health benefits of its key ingredient, simply Calcium. Consequently, it seems to be best to discuss it and its benefits in the following categorized manner for your better understanding.


Calcium is a soft grey alkaline earth metal, and is the fifth most abundant element on earth. It is a crucial component of living organisms, especially in cell physiology. It is not naturally found in its elemental state and occurs most commonly in sedimentary rocks in the minerals of calcite, dolomite and gypsum. It also occurs in igneous and metamorphic rocks chiefly in the silicate minerals such as plaglioclase, amphiboles, pyroxenes and garnets.

Calcium is a major component of our daily diet, which must be met throughout our lifetime. It is an important substance needed for the normal growth and maintenance of our bones and teeth and a long-term deficiency can lead to “Osteoporosis”. Here, the bones deteriorate and there is an increased risk of fractures. Furthermore, a life long deprivation will severely influence bone and tooth formations. Of course, excess retention will result in hypocalcaemia, which is an elevated level of calcium in the blood. High calcium intakes or high calcium absorption were previously thought to contribute to the development of kidney stones. However, more recent studies show that high dietary calcium intakes actually decrease the risk of kidney stones!

Calcium supplements are a necessity for all of us and must be used to prevent and to treat calcium deficiencies. There are conflicting recommendations about the daily dosages of this substance. However, most experts agree that no more than 250 mg should be taken at a time because the percent of calcium absorbed decreases as the amount of calcium in the supplement increases. In July 2006, a report citing research from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington claimed that women in their 50s gained 5 pounds less in a period of 10 years by taking more than 500 mg of calcium supplements than those who did not.

We highly recommend that you space out your daily intake of Calcium throughout the day, with the last dose near bedtime. Of course, the present recommended daily calcium intake is suggested to be between 1000 to 1,000 mg depending on your age. Please, do make sure to take effervescent products for full absorption.
