Floradix Calcium Magnesium with Zinc & Vitamin D Because There's More To Bone Health Than Just Calcium.... Thin, fragile bones: theyre not just a concern for the elderly. It starts really young before birth, actually, when the quality of a mothers diet affects the babys bones1,2 and continues throughout childhood when optimum amounts of calcium and co-factors keep bones growing strong. Bone loss begins in your 30s3 or earlier if you are not careful about preserving bone density.We can improve bone strength throughout adulthood, and even during pregnancy and menopause we have the opportunity to help preserve our bone mass. You can minimize the risk of osteoporosis with a bonehealthy diet and lifestyle combined with highly soluble, supplemental nutrients that are easily absorbed. Osteoporosis occurs over a lifetime, so you need to keep your bones strong over a lifetime. Floradix Calcium-Magnesium is an effective and safe choice because it: Addresses the unique requirements of your bones. - Suits your diet. - Addresses the challenges of calcium utilization and absorption. - Is safe to take every day, over a lifetime. - Is easy to swallow and tasty, too! - Is made by Salus famous for quality and helping people stay healthy. - Start now to protect your bones and maintain your quality of life as you age. - Bone loss begins in your 30s Easy lifestyle changes in diet, exercise and supplementation at any time will have a positive impact on your future bone health. Protect and strengthen during the adult years Although peak bone density usually hits at age 30, exciting new research finds we can still impact the quality of our bones well into our 40s.4,5,6 This impacts bone strength and strong bones do not fracture.Without enough minerals including magnesium in the diet, bones are more brittle, less flexible, and fracture more easily. Many studies show that children, pregnant women and the elderly have better bones if they have higher magnesium in their diet.2,6,7 In one study, 71% of women in early menopause arrested bone loss (usually 3-8% every year) and some even increased their bone density by taking magnesium. In line with science, Floradix Calcium-Magnesium has a higher ratio of magnesium, plus added zinc and vitamin D; this helps ensure the calcium is delivered to and laid down in the bones properly for optimum bone strength. Not just for bones Calcium and magnesium deficiencies have been linked with PMS and painful periods,9,10,11 difficulty sleeping,12,13 common pregnancy complaints,14,15,16 leg cramps,17 and decreased exercise capacity.17 By correcting deficiencies, you may be able to say goodbye to some familiar symptoms. Balancing out the North American diet Your food provides you with some calcium (on average, 800 mg per day), so you shouldnt try to fulfill your daily requirements only with a supplement. Numerous studies have found that when we reach the threshold of approximately 1,000 mg, adding more calcium does not have added benefit.4,18 A safe, lower dosage from a high quality, properly balanced supplement can be your insurance policy to fill the gap. Safe and effective for the adult years Floradix Calcium-Magnesium is specifically designed to help preserve your peak bone density and strengthen your bones. Taking highly soluble minerals in liquid form that the body can easily utilize allows you to take a lower daily dose but still get the benefits you expect from calcium. This is safer than high doses of less absorbable calcium over a long period of time, which interferes with magnesium absorption.19 Magnesium is needed to help make sure the calcium is deposited in the bone instead of the soft tissue not to mention helping to avoid kidney and gallstones, joint discomfort and other calcification problems such as atherosclerotic plaque.,20 People with a lower risk of osteoporosis have adequate intake of calcium, magnesium, zinc and vitamin D over a lifetime, so low daily doses make good sense. The supplement for your diet Q: Why do North Americans have the highest rate of osteoporosis in the world despite also having the most dairy and calcium supplements? A: It is because we are consuming four times more calcium than magnesium, so our calcium isnt being utilized properly, making our bones fragile. The ideal ratio of calcium to magnesium in the body (not in a supplement) is 2:1. To reach this balance, more magnesium is desperately needed.21 Liquid is best but choose wisely! Liquid calcium supplements can provide enhanced availability because the digestive tract doesnt have to break them down before the active ingredients can be absorbed. Also, liquids cover more surface area, accessing a greater number of absorption sites. ? What to look out for in a liquid supplement: A solution means the minerals are dissolved in the liquid, which provides the enhanced absorption. You get at least as much utilizable calcium (or more) than a solid supplement without the waste so you can take a lower dose of a liquid solution. However, many liquid calcium supplements on the market are suspensions, not solutions; the minerals are not dissolved and are no better absorbed than a capsule. A suspension-based calcium supplement looks all white with clear fluid at the top whereas a solution-based calcium is uniform in color and consistency. The Floradix solution of soluble minerals If supplemental nutrients are not soluble, then they wont stay dissolved in the liquid or in your digestive juices meaning you wont easily absorb them. Floradix Calcium-Magnesium uses soluble, organic forms that are better absorbed, utilized and assimilated: calcium gluconate and lactate19,22 (the forms used in IV solutions), and magnesium citrate and gluconate. A supplement that is easily absorbed should not cause any digestive upset. Easy to absorb at any age Calcium gluconate and lactate can absorb well regardless of age, gender, stomach acid, digestive function, dosage, vitamin D intake, nutrition, or hormone status.23 Many forms of calcium can only be absorbed at the start of the digestive tract, and then become insoluble (unabsorbable) as the pH goes up in the small intestine. Gluconate and lactate are not affected by pH changes, so they can be absorbed along the whole digestive tract.19,22,23 The body chooses the easiest to absorb In a study where calcium gluconate, calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate were given together, the body absorbed 2/3 of the gluconate, 1/3 of the phosphate and none of the carbonate.23 Watch out for products that have a combination of calcium compounds including carbonate: not all of the calcium will be bioavailable. Give your body what it wants: minerals it can use. Also required for the best bones Vitamin D enhances the absorption of calcium, reduces bone breakdown, and prevents softening of the bone. Combined with calcium, it is effective in reducing hip and spine fractures. Floradix Calcium-Magnesium uses D3, which is four times more active than D2.24 Zinc assists collagen synthesis (needed for the bone matrix) and stimulates bone formation.,25 Floradix Calcium-Magnesium contains zinc citrate for easy absorption.
