Product Information

We've heard it since we were kids - calcium is good for our bones. The mantra was always to enjoy milk products—or collard greens, Chinese cabbage, mustard greens, broccoli, bok choy, tofu, sardines with bones, fortified orange juice, etc. 99% of the body's calcium is actually found in bones and teeth.


Calcium is an essential mineral for nerve transmission, muscle contraction, vascular contraction, vasodilation, glandular secretion, cell membrane and capillary permeability, enzyme reactions, respiration, renal function, blood coagulation, hormone release and storage, the production of energy and the maintenance of immune functions.


Phew! That's one big job for a homely little mineral! 


Members are always asking about the various types of calcium—carbonate, citrate, acetate, aspartate, chelate, chloride, malate, gluconate, lactate, phosphate, and so on!


When taken with meals, calcium carbonate—yes, the far less flashy and far less expensive stuff—has been shown to be as or more absorbable (39%) as five other forms of calcium, including calcium acetate (32%), calcium lactate (32%), milk (31%), calcium citrate (30%), and calcium gluconate (27%).


These figures were taken from a study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 317, No. 9, August 27, 1987.


Calcium is a bulky mineral, so when faced with formulating the Liquid Calcium product, we had to think about the hassles of taking extra soft gels.  Calcium carbonate provides the most compact offering as well.  Take a look at the differences in elemental calcium derived from different forms:

  • Calcium carbonate and calcium phosphate—approximately 40%
  • Calcium citrate—approximately 21%
  • Calcium lactate—approximately 13%
  • Calcium gluconate—approximately 9%

So, that's why we use the calcium carbonate form—research shows that it is as available as other forms, especially when taken with meals; it's more compact (fewer pills); and we can offer it at a better price.


Like many other nutrients, calcium is most effective when paired with its natural co-factors, including magnesium, vitamin D3, and boron.


Magnesium is important to normal bone structure and from 50% - 60% of the magnesium in the body is present in bones! Similar to calcium, magnesium is another hard-working and under-appreciated mineral!


Magnesium plays an essential role in over 300 fundamental cellular reactions! It is necessary for every major biological process, including cellular energy and the synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins. It is also important for the electrical stability of cells, the maintenance of membrane integrity, muscle contraction, nerve conduction, and the regulation of vascular tone, among other things.


Bone health is dependent on a host of vitamins and minerals including magnesium, potassium, vitamin D and boron. To help cover the basics, we've now added vitamin D3 and boron to our ever popular Liquid Calcium.


Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), the active form of vitamin D that we use, maintains blood levels of calcium by increasing the absorption of calcium from food or supplements.


While it is not essential that you take vitamin D together with calcium, it is essential that your body have enough vitamin D circulating in your system to support calcium absorption. Combining calcium and vitamin D has been a long-time member request, hence our new formulation with vitamin D.


As background, vitamin D—also known as the sunlight vitamin—is created when your skin is exposed to sunlight. However, with so many folks avoiding the sun and with aging, your body's manufacture of vitamin D can drop to unhealthy levels.


Boron is a trace nutrient important for a healthy metabolism, and plays an important role in cell membrane function as well. Specifically, boron helps in the metabolism of calcium, vitamin D, potassium, and magnesium. For calcium in particular, boron may reduce urinary loss of calcium.


Warnings

  • Men with high dietary calcium intake may increase their risk of prostate cancer. Check with a health care practitioner to ensure appropriate levels are being met and not overdone.
  • Cigarette smoking decreases intestinal calcium absorption.
  • The elderly are at increased risk of hypomagnesemia. The elderly are more prone to decreased magnesium absorption and increased urinary loss and disease states associated with abnormal magnesium status.

Calcium
I like all the products I ordered. That''''swhy I keep ordering them. Almost twoyears ago I learned that I had MacularDegeneration and no central vision in right eye. There has been no negativechange since that time. I have increasedthe supplements I take including Eye Protection. My Dr. told me to keep on withthe vitamins and supplements, which is what I would do anyway. I appreciate theexcellent products offered by Our Health coop. Thank you.
