For Adult Women - This high potency combination considers the calcium challenges adult women face including those posed by diet, stress and hormonal changes. Two caplets daily supplies 700 mg of elemental calcium.
Calcium also works in harmony with a great number of other nutrients. Each Complete Calcium formula contains a uniquely tailored array of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, green food concentrates and herbal extracts. These synergistic nutrients promote superior calcium metabolization while providing a host of additional health enhancing properties.
Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Zinc and Copper - These minerals assist in the absorption of calcium, regulate the transfer of minerals through the cell membrane, aid in the formation of bone, stimulate enzyme production and increase the biochemical activity of vitamin D.
Vitamin D - Also known as the sunshine vitamin, this nutrient is essential for the proper uptake of calcium. Vitamin D assists in the passage of calcium from the intestinal tract into the bloodstream.
Boron - This trace mineral plays the duel role of increasing calcium absorption while also reducing calcium excretion. It is of particular importance to women after menopause, as boron helps to offset the calcium loss typically associated with lower estrogen levels. Apple cider vinegar and grape seed extract are included in the women's formulas as natural, high quality sources of this mineral.
Silica - Derived from the trace mineral silicon, silica is needed for proper bone formation and calcification as well as the creation and repair of connective tissue.
Betaine Hydrochloride and Bioperine - These co-factors increase absorption by assisting in the digestion and entry into the blood stream of not only the calcium but also the majority of the nutrients contained in each formula.
Flax and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) - In addition to a long list of health promoting properties these essential fatty acids assist in both bone formation and maintenance.
Indole 3 (Broccoli Extract) and Lycopene - These specialized antioxidants provide additional highly alkaline calcium and contribute to improved bone formation, while offering some additional gender specific health benefits including hormone balancing and prostate support.
Ester C - Vitamin C assists in the production of collagen one of the key components of bone. Ester C is a high quality, non-acidic form of vitamin C that is bound to calcium for optimum effectiveness.
