Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones, cartilage, skin and teeth. Calcium and magnesium are needed for the normal maintenance of bones and teeth.
Vitamin D contributes to normal blood calcium levels and to the normal absorption / utilisation of calcium. Vitamin D also helps maintain normal bones, teeth and muscle function. Vitamin K2 contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
The vitamin C in this formula is buffered to be gentle on the stomach. The calcium and magnesium are cheltated as citrates. Additional boron and malic acid.
Vitamin D in this formula is vegan.
This formula is free of oxide and carbonate forms of minerals to maximise absorption rates.
The NIH consensus panel on osteoporosis have suggested an intake of 1000mg/day of calcium by oestrogen replete premenopausal women and for postmenopausal women treated with oestrogen.
An intake of 1500mg/day is suggested for untreated postmenopausal women.
Up to 2500mg calcium/day is suggested as an upper safety level.
Research suggests that the dosage range for Boron in adults is 1-13 mg/day.
Potential applications: This combination of minerals provides support for a wide range of applications including; menopause / post-menopause related osteoporosis, bone fractures, neuro-muscular disorders e.g. fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), cardiovascular conditions e.g. hypertension, the elderly, and sports nutrition (magnesium and malic acid are required for efficient energy metabolism (ATP production). Other applications include PMS, PCOS, muscle cramps, hearing loss, and insulin resistance.
Known contraindications: Not recommended for use during pregnancy unless recommended by a physician.
Patients with hyperparathyroidism, severe heart disease or cancer should consult their physician before introducing calcium/magnesium supplementation.
Interactions: Vitamin D is required for effective absorption of calcium. Calcium in either food or supplemental form has been shown to inhibit iron absorption by 49 to 62% when ingested together.
Caffeine increases urinary output of calcium.
Product contains Vitamin K and therefore should not be taken with Warfarin.
