Our bones are one of the most commonly overlooked components of our bodies, because unless they are broken, most people pay them almost no attention. That means most people aren't paying attention to the nutrients they need to consume to ensure healthy bone structure and strength. Unfortunately this attitude can result in a missed opportunity to prevent bone damage from happening. If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, then the best way to set a broken bone is to keep it from breaking in the first place. Just about everyone knows calcium is important to bone health, but what you might be missing is that there are many different types of calcium. There are also other minerals and vitamins that can greatly benefit bone health.
Calcium - 101
Most Calcium supplements are derived from limestone. Simple, rock-based calcium has a flat, basic architecture and lacks many other bone-supportive nutrients. This form is generally called calcium carbonate, and is one of the cheapest forms available. The catch is it is very low in terms of bio-availability. The only way the body can really use this form of calcium is through the increased production of stomach acid in order to break it down.
Bone Strength Take Care is different.
New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care delivers bone strengthening Calcium within the infinite complexities of whole food. The Calcium complex in Bone Strength Take Care is derived from a natural plant form called Red Marine Algae (Lithothamnion), using sustainable harvesting techniques from pristine shores along the Icelandic coastline. By utilizing whole food sources of calcium, bone strength provides a highly absorpbable form of calcium that the body is easily able to use, providing greater benefit than standard calcium carbonate supplements. Plant-sourced and porous, our Calcium is part of an intricate matrix of minerals that are organized in a natural honeycomb structure. For holistic bone nourishment, it delivers whole-food Calcium, Magnesium and multiple other trace minerals.
