FUNCTIONS

If you are over 18 years of age your body contains approximately 1,200 grams of calcium, about 99% of which is present in the bones.  There is also about 30 grams of magnesium with about 60% also located in the bones.

The process of building and maintaining bone structure is complex and thus a complex supplement is needed.  Science has discovered that cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts are the two main types of bone cells involved in preserving bones. Osteoblasts are responsible for building new bone. Osteoclasts are responsible for secreting acid and enzymes that dissolve bone tissue into calcium and other components.  The body “borrows” these minerals from the bone to be used by the body. This process is known as ‘resorption.’ In children and adolescents, the rate of formation of building new bone predominates over the rate of resorption. In later life, resorption predominates over formation. Therefore, in normal aging, there is a gradual loss of bone. Studies have found that obtaining enough dietary calcium throughout life can significantly decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis. Calcium supplementation during childhood and adolescence appears to be a prerequisite for maintaining adequate bone density later in life. But even elderly osteoporotic people can benefit significantly from supplementation with calcium. Other nutrients like boron are also needed.  Boron is an essential trace mineral and is required for various hormonal process that impact bone health.  Boron helps support the functions of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D.
