Description of OsteoForm Amino Acid Calcium, 120 Capsules, Maxorb
- Enhanced Absorbtion Bone Nutrients.
- Amino Acid Chelated Calcium.
For the promotion and maintenance of healthy bone and optimum functioning of the body's metabolic processes.
Osteoform is a unique Calcium Mineral Formula containing the most bioavailable forms of amino acid chelated calcium along with necessary minerals and vitamin D3 to enhance the absorption and utilization of calcium and minerals by the body. Osteoform providing the maximum in nutrition and bio-availability for the body necessary to build and maintain strong healthy bones and ensure bone health in all stages of life. Current scientific research indicates daily supplementation of Calcium in the diet reduces the risk of developing osteoporosis while maximizing bone health. Calcium helps regulate heartbeat, transmit nerve impulses and contract muscles, as well as form and maintain strong bones and teeth. Studies show that adequate calcium is needed for proper blood clotting and to maintain blood vessel walls.
Osteform contains organic chelated minerals. It releases slowly in the intestines to reach a high absorption rate and will not cause an upset stomach. Other calcium products using general minerals could form insoluble hydroxides, which will influence the absorbing of those minerals. This often causes upset stomach. Osteoform can effectively avoid these side effects. Osteoform has been approved as a very effective product in helping to prevent the onset of osteoporosis and increasing bone density. It contains nine chelated minerals and vitamin D3, which helps to provide nourishment for our bones.
Organic life -plants and animals- depends on inorganic compounds from the mineral kingdom to support its existence. Minerals are naturally occurring elements that are a part of the body's tissues and fluids. Nutritionally, there are macro minerals (calcium, magnesium, etc.) and trace minerals (iron, zinc, etc.), each one impacting many areas of health. Minerals support nerve responses and muscle contraction, influence the manufacture of hormones and blood, and impact cellular energy production and immune function. They are excreted daily and must be replaced through the diet or in supplement form.
As with other nutrients, nature supplies minerals in many foods in a generally absorbable from and sometimes in balance with other nutrients. For example, dairy products are a rich source of calcium, but also deliver the important phosphorus and magnesium required to keep levels of all three minerals in ideal balance. Plants have served as a major dietary source of many minerals - particularly trace minerals - as they take up the nutrients from the soil; however soil erosion and agrochemical farming techniques have depleted much of the natural mineral content in plants. Leading consumers to seek bioavailable minerals in supplements or fortified foods.
Bioavailablility refers to how available a mineral element is for use in the body. Here is where mineral supplements vary widely. While some supplements have a high trace mineral content, those minerals are not "chelated" and so are not absorbable and useable in the body.
Bioavailablility is an important concept in mineral nutrition. Inorganic mineral salts (carbonates, sulfates, etc.) are used inefficiently by the body, because they must be converted into an absorbable form and then assembled with carrier proteins to assist transport. Digestive disorders, age-related decreases in the gastric acid secretion and other health factors can also impact the body's ability to absorb inorganic mineral salts. Naturally chelated minerals, such as the iron and zinc found in meat, have been shown to be efficiently absorbed and safely handled. Evidence has shown these naturally chelated forms do not interfere with absorption of one another, nor is their absorption hindered by other dietary factors
Ideally, supplemental minerals - whether in fortified foods or dietary supplements - should be in a chelated state. Supplemental chelates have a metal ion attached by coordinate covalent bonds at the amine group and coordinate, covalent and/ or ionic bonds at the carboxyl oxygen group of the chelating ligand to form heterocyclic rings to at least one non-metalic ligand, usually an amino acid. These totally reacted, nutritionally functional amino acids chelates posses the absorption advantages of natural chelates present in food.
