What Is It?
Calcium citrate and citrate/malate are highly bioavailable
calcium chelates, providing support for bone,
cardiovascular and colon health.*
Uses For Calcium
Bone: Multiple randomized, double-blind, placebo
controlled studies have reported statistically significant
positive results using calcium supplementation to
support bone mineral composition and help reduce the
risk of osteoporosis for both women and men.
Risk factors for osteoporosis include sex, race, age and
inadequate calcium intake. Populations at highest risk for
osteoporosis include Caucasian, Asian, postmenopausal
women, and elderly women and men. Adequate calcium
intake throughout life is linked to a reduced risk of
osteoporosis, as calcium helps to optimize peak bone
mass during adolescence and early adulthood in
conjunction with exercise and healthy diet. Calcium intake
greater than 2,000 mg per day has no further known
benefit to bone health.
Cardiovascular: Calcium has demonstrated the ability to
provide a supportive effect on cardiovascular health by
promoting healthy receptor function and healthy lipid
Colon: Research suggests that calcium is associated with
supporting distal colon health.*
