- Contains ocean-harvested AlgaeCal® not
- With naturally-occurring magnesium, and
vitamins K2 (MK-7) & D3
Evidence suggests that calcium from whole food
sources may produce more favorable effects in bone health than
isolated calcium supplements.* Similar to most nutrients, the body can
utilize calcium more effectively when it is paired with its natural
co-factors such as magnesium and other trace minerals.
New Chapter® is proud to deliver a calcium complex derived from whole
food 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 calcium carbonate, also
known as limestone. You don’t eat rocks as part of your balanced diet,
so why would you choose to supplement your bone health nutritional
needs with limestone? Our bodies understand and seek whole food
sources of nutrition. That’s why New Chapter formulated this product
with a whole-food plant source of this important nutrient complex.
Plant Sourced Whole-Food Calcium
The calcium 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. The porous nature of the calcium found in
Bone Strength Take Care dramatically increases the surface area where
stomach acid can contact the calcium, making it easy to dissolve.
In addition to the whole-food source of calcium and magnesium, we have
also added other bone-nourishing nutrients 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, which has been found to aid in bone support and function
in several studies.*
Harvesting Live Marine Calcium
An Environmentally-Friendly Process - The plant source of the calcium
mineral complex in
Bone Strength Take Care is live marine algae. This
distinct species of algae, Algas calcareas, grows in a protected area
off the coast of South America. It is harvested carefully to ensure
quality and protect the delicate ecology of the ocean. Algas calcareas
does not grow in endangered coral reefs. Coral is an animal while
Algas calcareas is a plant and it grows in a different environment.
The algae are live-harvested by hand in waist-deep water, at low tide.
It is critical to harvest the plants live to keep their mineral and
nutrient content intact. The crop is rotated periodically to ensure
that the natural cycle of marine algae is not interrupted. Once
live-harvested, the plants are washed with fresh, ionized water and
sun dried. To ensure quality and safety, all yields from the marine
algae are tested for microbial activity and mineral content.
The calcium in Bone Strength Take Care is 75% bioavailable -
compared to 43% calcium bioavailability in whole-food dairy yogurt.
Calcium must be completely dissolved in order to be absorbed. The
porous nature of the calcium found in Bone Strength Take Care
dramatically increases the surface area where stomach acid can contact
the calcium making it easy to dissolve.
A close-up view of Algas calcareas, compared to limestone, provides a
revealing comparison between the two calcium sources. Compare the
porous, living surface of Algas calcareas to the jagged edges of the
rock-derived inorganic calcium carbonate. This makes Algas calcareas
even more bioavailable than dairy calcium. Dairy products are
whole-food sources of calcium and can be incorporated into a healthy
diet to help meet the level of calcium the body needs. But while this
food source is readily available and a good source of calcium, the
bioavailability of the calcium contained in dairy products is a
fraction of the absorbable calcium available in
Bone Strength Take
Care. The plant-source of calcium in Bone Strength Take Care is 75% bioavailable, even more accessible than the calcium in dairy yogurt –
which is 43% bioavailable (the most among dairy products).
