Evidence suggests that calcium from "whole food" sources may produce more favorable effects in bone health than isolated calcium supplements. As with 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.*
Now New Chapter, Inc. has developed a calcium complex derived from whole food - Bone Strength Take Care™ - 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, Inc. 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-magnesium 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.
(Since the discovery that it is an organic calcium-delivery vehicle, Algas Calcareas has also been used successfully to restore minerals and healthy microbial life to soil, to nourish poultry so as to eliminate the need for antibiotics and growth hormones, to support increased milk production in dairy herds, and more. See “The Saga of Algas Calcereas – A Plant Source Calcium Supplement.” )
Food Complex Includes Essential Co-Factors
In addition to the whole-food source of calcium and magnesium, other bone-nourishing nutrients have been added to complete the food complex.
• Vitamin K is an essential co-factor in calcium absorption and retention. Human cell proteins that don’t get enough Vitamin K can’t hold onto calcium, causing this critical nutrient to drift away from the bone.
• Vitamin K2 (MK-7), sourced from fermented whole food, gently redirects “lost” calcium back into the bone bank.
• Vitamin D3 completes the complex. The recent scientific literature offers numerous studies reporting that Vitamin D aids bone support and function.*
