Bone-Support may be taken by adults of any age, but it is generally not recommended for children and should not usually be needed. If you are concerned your child may be lacking in calcium we advise seeking the opinion of your doctor and of course aiming to add as many calcium rich foods to their diet as possible.
Due to the drop in estrogen, which holds calcium in the bones, post-menopausal women often benefit from including a greater amount of calcium-rich foods in the diet, as well as supporting this with a quality supplement such as Bone-Support.
Please speak with your doctor for advice regarding the amount of calcium that you may need each day.
Calcium is a vitally important mineral for the body. However due to many factors, the manner in which it is utilized or absorbed varies greatly from person to person.
Calcium is carried through the bloodstream in two distinct forms: about half is in a usable ionized form, and the other half is attached to protein and is unavailable as a nutrient. However, if the pH (the acid/alkaline balance) is too alkaline, even the usable calcium may not be able to be utilized.
The Aquamin TG Calcium used in Bone-Support is particularly excellent to ensure adequate absorption, as it also has a natural ability to balance the pH of the body.
We understand the importance of using a form of calcium which comes from natural, organic food sources that can be assimilated by your body and stored properly in your bones.
Alongside this calcium are a range of other highly beneficial, complementary nutrients that help enhance absorption, some of the key ingredients involved in this are Vitamin K2, Strontium, Mangosteen extract, and Vitamin D3.
Bone-Support is a very useful product to provide support in the case of Osteoporosis. It may be used to complement a healthy diet that contains an array of calcium-rich foods, along with gentle weight-bearing exercise, which helps to prevent further bone loss. Of course, it is important to visit your doctor regularly in order to monitor the health of your bones and obtain expert medical advice. Your doctor may recommend regular bone density scans, as well as pharmaceutical supplementation if necessary.
As with all of our products we recommend checking with your doctor before beginning Bone-Support.
Bone-Support contains 53% of the RDI of calcium, which may seem low in comparison to other products that may include 200% of the RDI. However, there is a very good reason for this; research has shown that the body is not able to absorb large amounts of calcium when taken in one dose, especially if it is in a poor quality form. The body will protect itself from obtaining too much calcium by absorbing less, if a high level is consumed. Therefore, even though a higher RDI may appear beneficial, it may in fact result in a lower absorption rate. Likewise, taking a lower dose of a high quality calcium, such as Bone-Support, may result in an enhanced absorption.
We have chosen to use a naturally sourced, bio-available calcium sourced from mineral-rich red algae in Bone-Support, which is named Aquamin TG. This is easily recognised and absorbed, thus achieving more positive results than a higher amount of a poor quality calcium. Importantly, it also has an alkalising effect in the body which is crucial to support an optimal pH balance to enable the efficient absorption of calcium.
We also believe that the majority of people should be able, or at least aim, to get as much calcium from dietary sources as possible. In conjunction with a generally healthy lifestyle and regular weight bearing exercise to help support bone health, especially with aging.
All supplements should be taken 2-3 hours away from prescription medication. We recommend checking with your doctor before beginning any supplement.
Yes, there is certainly no reason why children could not take Bone-Support, but it should not generally be needed provided a healthy diet is consumed, in conjunction with regular physical activity. A great source of calcium for children is full-fat dairy products such as yogurt, milk and small amounts of cheese, plus leafy greens. Also, avoid sodas as these can impact upon the absorption of calcium which is crucial as the skeleton is developing.
Yes, you can. All our products are formulated to work synergistically with each other.
