CABOT HEALTH Calcium Complete 120t
Calcium Complete is a comprehensive formulation of calcium with additional nutrients required for bone strength. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and is vital for developing and maintaining strong and healthy teeth and bone as well as maintaining connective tissue and promoting muscle and nerve function. Factors increasing the need for calcium supplementation: Osteoporosis Crohn's disease Older age Coeliac disease Bone break or fracture Hypoparathyroidism High blood pressure Rickets Muscle or ligament injuryThe benefits of Calcium Complete: Contains calcium citrate: This form of calcium requires less stomach acid for absorption and is better utilised in the body than the calcium carbonate form, which is commonly used in supplements. This form is beneficial for those with low stomach acid such as elderly people. Hydroxyapatite has also been used in this formula as it closely resembles the calcium in bones and teeth. Bone strength: Calcium Complete contains vitamin K2, boron and vitamin D which are full spectrum cofactors for strong and healthy bone tissue. When the diet is deficient in bone minerals like calcium, the body will access these mineral stores from the bone for use in the body. Contains vitamin D3: Vitamin D3 is the more active and absorbable form of vitamin D (compared to D2) and is broken down into calcitriol in the body. Calcitriol is a steroid hormone that helps to regulate calcium levels for bone mineralisation. Vitamin D is vital for calcium absorption and is a commonly deficient nutrient in people across the world. Collagen support: Calcium Complete contains manganese, copper and zinc which are cofactors for collagen production. Healthy collagen production is required for strong bones and is vital for the strength and flexibility of joints, ligaments and other connective tissue.Adults: 1-4 tablets daily, or as directed by their healthcare practitioner.
