Calcium designed for maximum absorption
GMP Certified, Non GMO, Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Wheat Free, Proudly Made In America
The only combination of Calcium, Magnesium, zinc and Potassium that contains the essential trace nutrients necessary for maximum absorption. Through the addition of the trace mineral strontium, this becomes an even more powerful product for those concerned about calcium and bone mass loss later in life. This may be the best magnesium supplement because it is combined with trace minerals, plus calcium with vitamin D is also helpful. Both chelated calcium and chelated magnesium round out the formula. When people look for the best magnesium supplement they must also take calcium, magnesium, and zinc with other supportive trace minerals.

Calcium is one of the most essential minerals in the body. In fact it is the most prevalent mineral, found in bones, teeth, and connective tissues. Calcium is also one of the most difficult minerals to absorb. Between these two factors, it is not surprising that many people are suffering from a calcium deficiency. Calcium supplements have been the focus of hundreds of clinical research projects, each looking for a way to enhance calcium supplements. The most recent studies have shown that a combination of calcium and key trace minerals is essential for the best calcium for osteoporosis. We have developed an osteoporosis supplement that meets the guidelines of these clinical studies. Bio-Complete Calcium Plus Capsules.
Osteoporosis and Bone Loss Can Be Reversed
As we age, bone loss and osteoporosis become an increasing problem due to calcium deficiency caused by a lack of calcium absorption. Until recent years, bone loss and osteoporosis were thought to be irreversible. This is no longer the case as there have been at least 7 clinical studies spanning a 15 year period that have shown that calcium can not only slow and halt the progression of osteoporosis and bone loss, but that the right form of calcium, together with key trace minerals, can actually increase bone density and offer osteoporosis treatment for post-menopausal women. We, based on these important studies, have developed the Bio-Complete Calcium formula, which we feel is the best calcium for osteoporosis.
Calcium Deficiency and Hip Fractures
Calcium deficiency is far more widespread than one might think. As people age they tend to avoid dairy products due to increased problems with digestion. Since this is the primary source of calcium from diet, older people are at high risk for calcium deficiency and should consider a calcium supplement for osteoporosis treatment.
Risk Factors For Osteoporosis
There are many factors that can increase the risk of osteoporosis and hip fractures. These include heredity and lifestyle factors. Over consumption of caffeine is the first on the list. Caffeine is a diuretic and as such can flush both vitamins and minerals from the tissues of the body. A high sodium diet is the next factor.
What About Calcium and the Diet Connection?
While the symptoms for fibromyalgia can be many, the most common include pain, fatigue, sleep disorders, Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS, PMS symptoms in women, and an overall stiffness and difficulty in mobility. It is curious to note that virtually all of these symptoms can also be related to excess toxicity of the body.
What About Those Medications?
Fosamax, Boniva, and other drugs can slow the progression of bone loss but oftentimes with a price. Each of these medications has potentially serious side effects, which increase the longer one takes them. Fosamax and Boniva can be used for short-term osteoporosis treatment, but in the long run diet and especially osteoporosis supplements must be employed. If weakened bones already exist, then these medications may be useful for the interim. Weakened bones, leading to hip and other fractures must be managed aggressively. The ideal situation is to take preventive action before serious bone loss develops.
Other Risk Factors
Keep in mind that any condition that compromises the digestion and absorption process can slow calcium absorption and make this situation worse. Conditions like Crohn’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, colitis, and other intestinal disorders would fall into this category. Women over the age of 40 need to be especially aware if they also have one of these pre-existing conditions like IBS, colitis or Crohn’s as this will put them at even greater risk for bone loss. Steroid drugs, often taken for these conditions further exacerbate the potential problems.
Not All Calcium Supplements Are Created Equal
There are probably dozens of calcium supplements in any given store. Sadly they are not all the same. The discount supplements found in the big chains are often composed of calcium carbonate, the most difficult form of calcium for the body to absorb. Further, they rarely contain all of the necessary co-factor nutrients to ensure maximum absorption. When doctors often recommend doses of calcium in the 1500 to 2500 mg range it’s because they know that much of the calcium will not be absorbed anyway. By taking the best calcium for osteoporosis, which is a form of calcium that is bio-available and also provides all of the co-factor nutrients, you may pay a little more but you will actually be able to absorb most of the calcium to the cells of the body, including the bones. These essential trace minerals are vital in preventing bone loss and should be part of a good osteoporosis supplement. Take the guesswork out of finding the right calcium supplement by contacting Phoenix Nutritionals, the exclusive distributor of the Bio-Complete Calcium Plus formula, developed right here at The Institute of Nutritional Science.
