Bone-Supporting Calcium Your Body Recognizes*
Trying to Digest Rocks? That's Heavy.
The truth is, not all calcium is created equal. The calcium in most conventional supplements comes from limestone — rocks. We don't eat rocks as part of our balanced diet, so why would we choose to supplement our bone health nutritional needs with limestone? The whole-food calcium in Bone Strength Take Care is different. It's plant-based calcium that is easily recognized and absorbed by our bodies.*
New Chapter® formulated Bone Strength Take Care with a whole-food plant source of calcium called Lithothamnion, which is sustainably harvested from pristine shores along the Icelandic coastline. Calcium must be completely dissolved in order to be absorbed. The plant-based calcium found in Bone Strength Take Care grows in a honeycomb structure and is extremely porous, which dramatically increases the calcium's surface area. Stomach acid may then come into greater with the calcium, helping to support the dissolving process.* Calcium carbonate sourced from limestone has a much smaller, rocky surface area and is more difficult to dissolve.
Calcium is a critical mineral that is important not only for bone health, but one that also supports normal muscle and nerve function.* So it's not surprising that the body aims to maintain a constant level of calcium in the bloodstream. To support this constant level, our bones act as a storage bank for calcium.
But calcium alone is not enough. The body also needs sufficient levels of Vitamin K, Vitamin D3 and trace minerals to use calcium efficiently for building healthy bones. Vitamin D3 assists the absorption of calcium. That's why New Chapter's Bone Strength Take Care contains a highly bioavailable, bioactive, and long-lasting form of natural Vitamin K2 (MK-7), along with Vitamin D3, which has been found to aid in normal bone support and function in several studies.*
