Optimal Calcium by OHS: It seems that everyone understands the importance of calcium as it relates to building strong bones and teeth and to warding off osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is often referred to as the silent disease since bone loss can occur without symptoms. It is characterized by low bone mass resulting in bone fragility. This disease can occur at any age. One out of every two women and one in four men over the age of 50 will experience an osteoporosis related fracture in their lifetime. These fractures can result in pain, loss in height, and permanent debilitation.Recommended Usage: As a dietary supplement, take 1 to 6 capsules daily with meals. For best results, take no more than 3 capsules with each meal*
Calcium is also vital in regulating other functions, including nerve transmission, heart rhythm, hormone production, wound healing and even optimal digestion.
According to the National Institute of Health, adults are recommended to consume 1,000 to 1,300 mg of calcium a day. Although food is the best source of calcium, studies have shown that the typical American diet does not contain sufficient amounts of calcium. Unfortunately, this lack of intake is combined with other lifestyle and dietary habits that further deplete calcium supplies from the body; such as stress, lack of exercise, high fat diets, smoking, soda consumption and high protein diets. Supplementing with Optimal Calcium can help to ensure your optimal intake of this essential mineral.
While the media and advertisers have done a good job of acquainting the public with the need for calcium supplementation, they have failed to point out the fact that all calcium supplements are not the same. Calcium carbonate, which is the same form of calcium found in Tums and in most other calcium supplements and multi-vitamins on the market has a low rate of absorption and poor tissue retention. What this means is that even though an individual may take high doses of calcium carbonate, very little calcium is actually absorbed and used by the body. In addition, poorly absorbed forms of calcium can cause serious gastrointestinal problems and side effects.
On the other hand, Optimal Calcium contains the only patented form of amino acid chelated calcium, ensuring maximum absorption and use by the body. This formula also contains amino acid chelated magnesium to maintain the body’s calcium-magnesium balance and lecithin to aid these essential minerals in promoting positive cardiovascular and nervous function.
