Calcium Plus is a synergistic blend of vitamins, chelated calcium, trace minerals, and other potent ingredients, which help maintain proper bone structure and function. It combines an optimal blend of nutrients that years of research have shown to be most important for bone health.
Bone is an active tissue continuously being broken down and rebuilt. During childhood, more bone is produced than is removed; thus, growth in size and strength occurs. Children are able to absorb up to 75% of the calcium they consume, but as growth slows, so does their calcium absorption rate. Teens absorb 20%-40% of ingested calcium and adults, on average, absorb around 15%.
For proper bone health, it's important to consume adequate calcium. Unfortunately, today's fast-paced lifestyles frequently include food choices that are low in Calcium, and some which can actually deplete calcium from the bones. Phosphate-rich foods like red meat and soda, when consumed in abundance, can demineralize bones as calcium i s pulled from the bones to maintain the body's calcium-phosphorus balance. According to UC Berkeley's New Wellness Encyclopedia, American women consume only about half as much calcium as recommended.
Osteoporosismeaning \"porous bones\"affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 8 men 50 years of age or older, or approximately 20 to 25 million Americans. Osteoporosis has been termed a silent disease because many sufferers are unaware they have this condition until they break or fracture a bone. The U.S. FDA estimates 1.3 million bone fractures a year are attributed to osteoporosis. Researchers used to think that only young and elderly women needed extra calcium, but the benefits of optimal calcium intake for people of both genders and all ages is now understood.
While drinking milk has shown to be somewhat effective in providing the calcium necessary to maintain healthy bones, research has indicated calcium supplementation is superior. The unique combination of plant nutrients in Calcium Plus are designed to work together to provide maximum calcium absorption. The calcium in Calcium Plus is chelated. Chelation is a process of binding a mineral to amino acids.
Chelation occurs naturally in the stomach when protein is digested into amino acids by stomach acid and enzymes and binds to the minerals naturally present in the food we eat. However, many of us have poor digestion that does not allow protein digestion to proceed efficiently. The chelated calcium in Calcium Plus provides calcium in a body-ready form. So regardless of your eating habits, the calcium in Calcium Plus is ready for absorption.
Regular exercise and a healthy diet with enough calcium helps teens and young adult Caucasian and Asian women maintain good bone health. It may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Calcium Plus corresponds to the FDA approved calcium claim, "Calcium and Vitamin D are important factors in maintaining proper structure and function of healthy bones. Adequate calcium intake is linked to reduced osteoporosis by slowing bone loss in menopausal middle age women, persons with a family history of osteoporosis, and elderly men and women."
