Evidence suggests that calcium from whole food sources may produce more favorable effects in bone health than isolated calcium supplements. Similar to most nutrients, the body can utilize calcium much more effectively when it is paired with its natural co-factors such as magnesium and other trace minerals.
New Chapter is proud to deliver a calcium complex derived from whole food that delivers these key essential nutrients in their safest, most active form within the infinite complexity of whole food.
The most common form of calcium supplement today is derived from limestone. You don't eat rocks as part of your balanced diet, why would you choose to supplement your bone health nutritional needs with limestone?
Our bodies understand and seek whole food sources of nutrition, not rocks, which is why New Chapter formulated this product with a whole food plant source of this important nutrient complex. As whole food, it's easy on the digestive system.
The calcium complex in Bone Strength Take Care™ is derived from a special form of plant called Algas Calcareas (AlgaeCal) that is harvested from the pristine shores of a protected national reserve park in South America. Much like the vegetables from an organic garden, the algae is harvested live and then cold processed to retain its nutritional value.
Calcium must be completely dissolved in order to be absorbed. The plant-based calcium found in Bone Strength Take Care is porous, which dramatically increases the calcium's surface area. Stomach acid can then come into greater contact with the calcium, making it easy to dissolve.
In addition to the whole-food source of calcium and magnesium, we have also added other bone-nourishing nutrients to complete the food complex.
Vitamin K is an essential co-factor in calcium absorption and retention. Bone Strength Take Care is formulated with the most bioavailable, bioactive, and longest-lasting form of natural Vitamin K2 (MK-7) (from MenaQ7™). This key nutrient helps put calcium into your bones where you need it, and helps keep calcium out of your arteries, where you don't.
Probiotic Vitamin D3 completes the bone health complex. Natural vitamin K2 partners with Vitamin D3 to promote bone health, support, and function -- in particular, both vitamins promote calcium absorption and utilization.
