The comprehensive 6-in-1 Bone Formula (with Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin D etc.) for strong bones and osteoporosis risk reduction

Osteoporosis, which literally means porous bone, is a disease in which the bone density is reduced leading to increased risk of bone fracture. This disease affects people who are middle aged or older. Women are at a particularly higher risk because menopause is accompanied by oestrogen deficiency, which accelerates bone loss. This increases a woman’s risk for osteoporosis. Worldwide, approximately 1 in 3 women over 50 years of age and 1 in 5 men over 50 years of age are at risk of an osteoporotic fracture.

Bone health can be affected by many factors such as heredity, diet, physical activity, hormonal levels and lifestyle. The importance of calcium has long been recognized in bone health. Lack of calcium in the body contributes to weak bones and an increased risk of bone fractures. However, as important as calcium is to bone health, only 25% of women with osteoporosis are calcium deficient. New evidence clearly supports the view that multiple nutrients are essential for bone health and for reducing osteoporosis. Magnesium and vitamin D enhance the absorption of calcium. Zinc in turn supports metabolism of vitamin D. Manganese and copper are trace minerals that support bone health, too. Live-well OsteCAL Complex provides calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, zinc, manganese and copper in one synergistic 6-in-1 bone formula.

Knowing your risk factors is the first step in successfully fighting osteoporosis. Some risk factors may be modifiable through changes in lifestyle.

Tips for lowering the risk of osteoporosis include:

  • Ensuring adequate calcium and vitamin D in your diet
  • Increasing weight-bearing exercises to help promote bone mineral density
  • Limiting cigarette use and alcohol intake
  • Maintaining healthy body weight

Who Will Benefit:

All ages:-
Children and Teens
The easiest way to lower the risk osteoporosis in later life is to ensure adequate calcium, vitamin D and minerals intake throughout childhood, teenage years and early adulthood.

Those in the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and beyond
Start in your 20’s because the idea is to build up optimal bone mass by the time you are 30 years of age. After that, bone mass generally does not increase.

 

Usage:
  • For strong and healthy bones
  • Reduces risk of bone fractures and osteoporosis

Notes

What makes Live-well OsteCAL Complex good?
Contains less than 500mg Calcium per tablet – Calcium absorption is better in divided doses of 500 mg or less each time. Conversely, amounts exceeding 500mg will decrease calcium absorption.

Formulated with calcium carbonate (which yields one of the highest levels of elemental calcium) for optimum bone health.

 

Q1. Is absorption an issue with calcium carbonate?

Calcium carbonate yields one of the highest amounts of elemental calcium. Absorption is not a problem when taken with or after meals as the stomach acid helps with the absorption of calcium.
