is a structural System Strengthener. It is in a liquid form which
means it is absorbed by the body 78-88% better than pills. The
Physician's Desk Reference (page 1542) shows that vitamins and minerals
in a pill form are only 10-20% absorbed by the body. Vitamins and
minerals in liquid form are up to 98% absorbed by the body.

Calcium is the mineral in your body that makes up
your bones and keeps them strong. Ninety-nine percent of the calcium
in your body is stored in your bones and teeth. The remaining 1%
is in your blood and soft tissues and is essential for life and
health. Without this tiny 1% of calcium, your muscles wouldnít contract
correctly, your blood wouldnít clot and your nerves wouldnít carry
It is mainly the calcium in your diet that spares,
or protects, the calcium in your bones. In addition to their structural
role, your bones are your emergency supply of calcium. Your body
actually tears down and builds bone all of the time in order to
make its calcium available for your bodyís functions.
If you donít get enough calcium from the food you
eat, your body automatically takes the calcium you need from your
bones. If your body continues to tear down more bone than it replaces
over a period of years to get calcium, your bones become weak and
This can lead to the crippling bone disease called
"osteoporosis." Osteoporosis is a major public health
threat for an estimated 44 million Americans. In the U.S. today,
10 million individuals are estimated to already have the disease
and almost 34 million more are estimated to have low bone mass,
placing them at increased risk for osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis can make your bones so weak, in fact,
that they can break with a firm handshake. Because people often
do not get enough calcium from their diets, osteoporosis is now
a major health concern and one of our most common diseases.
Calcium: What do I need to know?
Calcium is an essential nutrient your body needs
every day. You may already know that it helps build and maintain
healthy teeth and bones. But thatís not all. Calcium also keeps
your heart beating steadily, your blood working correctly and your
nerves and muscles in good shape, too.
Don't allow your body to become a breeding ground
According to current studies and Robert Barefoot in his books The
Calcium Factor and Death
by Diet, if your body is acidic, disease can take root. His
studies also show that Calcium helps to restore proper pH levels
by removing the acid in your body and returning it back to its healthy
OsteoProCare uses only the highest quality ingredients
in its formulation. OsteoProCare uses a unique proprietary blend
of calcium, magnesium and chondroitin. This blend also includes
vitamin D, peppermint, and colloidal minerals for better absorption
Each serving of OsteoProCare yields 1200 mg of Calcium,
600 mg of Magnesium and 200 mg of Glucosamine.
Calcium is key to keeping your body running smoothly.
Because your bones are made from calcium, if you do not get enough
from your daily diet, your body will "steal" the calcium
from your bones to make up the difference. Over the long run this
can reduce your bone strength.
What can you do?
You can make smarter choices about what you eat.
Add calcium-rich foods such as low-fat dairy products and broccoli
to your daily diet. If you canít get enough calcium from your diet,
you can add a calcium supplement like OsteoProCare to your daily
This information provides you with the basic facts
about calcium, tells you how to get it daily and answers some commonly
asked questions. Remember: Calcium is essential to good health.
But calcium is only part of the picture. You also need exercise
and a balanced diet to stay healthy.
Your need for calcium starts even before you are
born and extends throughout your lifetime. However, most people
today are consuming fewer dairy products and vegetables that are
calcium-rich. Think about your own diet. How many glasses of milk,
if any, do you drink a day? When was the last time you had cottage
cheese, broccoli, or sardines?
The most recent government survey of the eating
habits of Americans confirms that most people are not getting enough
calcium. Teenagers, young women and post-menopausal women in particular
are consuming far less than is healthy -- and less than their body's

Is Calcium essential during Childhood to Young
From birth until about age 18, bones are forming
and growing. Calcium is essential to this process. Thatís why breast
milk and infant formulas are rich in calcium. As children grow,
it is equally important that their diet remain calcium-rich.
Unfortunately, the calcium intake of most Americans
peaks at age eight. Think about it. While preschoolers have most
of their diet chosen by a parent, by age eight, children are making
more decisions on their own. They prefer juice or soda to milk with
lunch. They like other snacks besides cheese and crackers.
During late adolescence, through young adulthood,
adult bone is formed and reaches its maximum strength and density.
Bones continue to accumulate calcium and become stronger after we
have stopped growing. The calcium that you provide to your bones
when you are young determines how well they will hold up later in
life. By age 35 your bones are about as strong as they are ever
going to be.
How does Calcium help during childbearing?
No matter what age a woman is when she becomes pregnant,
calcium is very important to both the mother and the baby. Calcium
from the motherís body is used by the developing baby, putting increased
demands on the motherís supply. Additional calcium should be consumed
for both the motherís and babyís health.
Based on an analysis published in the Journal of
the American Medical Association there is evidence that increasing
calcium intake can help maintain normal blood pressure in pregnant
women. Pregnancy-induced high blood pressure is a serious complication
that can put both mother and child at risk.
How does calcium affect menopause?
When a woman enters menopause, her body produces
much less of the female hormone estrogen. Loss of estrogen increases
the risk of osteoporosis. Simply put, osteoporosis is a thinning
of the bones. Bones become weak and fragile and can break easily.
Thatís why it is so important to take steps to protect yourself
from osteoporosis by getting enough calcium every day.
Calcium by itself has been shown to prevent some
bone loss after menopause, and it definitely can help estrogen replacement
therapy work more effectively. Recent studies have shown estrogen
plus daily calcium is up to three times more effective in building
bone than estrogen alone! Other prescription drugs for osteoporosis
such as Miacalcin®, Fosamax® and Evista® also need calcium
to be most effective.
The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends
that women make certain they get adequate daily calcium intake to
make hormone replacement therapy and other prescription osteoporosis
medications work more effectively. Men are also vulnerable to osteoporosis
and need to consume adequate calcium through their older years to
prevent further bone loss, and in their younger years to achieve
peak bone mass.
How can I increase my calcium intake?
Dairy products provide an easy source of calcium
in the diet. Dark greens as romaine lettuce, kale, broccoli, and
dandelion greens, are the best sources of calcium. In addition,
try adding sesame seeds (ground or sesame milk), dulse, kelp, all
green vegetables; unrefined seeds, nuts and cereal grains and sardines,
especially with the bones included, to your diet. Try to avoid processed
foods fortified with calcium, including fruit juices, snack foods
and breakfast cereals. You might find the easiest way to get the
daily calcium you need is to make changes in your diet and take
a calcium supplement.
Am I getting calcium from my multivitamins?
Maybe, but not much. Read the label. Even in the
case of prenatal vitamins for pregnant women, the calcium content
may not be enough to meet the daily demands of the mother and growing
baby. A multivitamin may provide additional nutrients and vitamins
that your body needs, but if your diet is low in calcium, you need
to take a special calcium supplement.
When should I take a calcium supplement?
The key is to choose a supplement that you will
actually take every day. Taking a supplement at mealtime is a convenient
way to remember your daily calcium.
Do I need other nutrients like Vitamin D with
my calcium supplement?
Vitamin D does help your body absorb and use calcium.
Vitamin D is available from fortified dairy products,
cod liver oil and fatty fish, and is manufactured by the body in
reaction to sunlight. Generally, about fifteen minutes of direct
sunlight per day gives you the vitamin D you need. However, the
elderly and the homebound, in particular, often do not get enough
vitamin D. Also, during the winter season the sunlight in the Northern
parts of the U.S. is not intense enough to build up vitamin D in
When should I take a calcium supplement?
If you arenít getting enough calcium from your diet,
you need to take a calcium supplement every day. Here are some tips
to help you remember.
* Take your calcium supplement with meals.
* Take your calcium supplement in divided doses throughout the day.
The body can absorb only so much calcium at one time, so try taking
a supplement with two of your meals each day.
What problems might I have taking calcium?
Itís very difficult to get too much calcium. Any
excess which the body cannot use is excreted from the body in the
urine and stool. Daily consumption up to 2,500 mg has been shown
to be safe.
If you experience constipation or gas from calcium,
your body may be adjusting to the new levels of calcium. If this
happens, try starting with a small amount and build gradually to
an adequate daily amount. And take your calcium in several doses
during the day, for instance at meal times.
What about kidney stones? Are they caused by
Additional calcium intake may actually lower your
risk for kidney stones. The largest study ever conducted on calcium
and kidney stones, published in the New England Journal of Medicine
in 1993, and another published in 1997, showed that daily calcium
intake above 850 mg decreased the incidence of symptomatic kidney
Reducing your intake of dietary oxalate, a substance
found in wheat bran, rhubarb, beets and nuts may also lower your
risk of stones. The most important dietary factor in preventing
kidney stones is water. Drink plenty of fluids, but not soft drinks,
to help lower your risk for stones. And keep taking your calcium.
Restricting calcium intake could increase the risk of stones.
Other benefits from taking calcium supplements
Studies have shown that high acidic levels in the
body encourage the growth of disease. A proper PH level between
7.0 and 7.5 helps to stop disease and return your body back to its
proper state. Studies have also shown that taking a calcium supplement
like OsteoProCare daily will bring your PH levels back into a normal
What can I expect to feel by using OsteoProCare?
Generally, the first noticeable benefit may be better
sleep which customers report may be associated with reduced pain
and stiffness upon waking, more energy upon waking, better ability
to fall asleep and decreased incidence of leg cramps, restless legs
and muscle spasms.
Customers have reported other results, including:
reduced joint or back pain, stiff neck and shoulders. As a result
of sleeping better, with less pain, many people report increased
energy, with an improved sense of well-being.
Do I need to keep taking my over the counter
OsteoProCare is a high quality calcium supplement
that will give you a complete 1200 mg dose of calcium. If you are
taking an over-the-counter calcium supplement, stop taking it while
you are taking OsteoProCare.
OsteoProCare with Magnesium,
Chondroitin, Glucosamine, and Vitamin D has been carefully formulated
to increase the bio-availability of dietary calcium and provide
the other nutrients the body requires for optimum structural support.
This pleasant-tasting liquid preparation combines
calcium with other essential minerals (including four crucial minerals
necessary for proper bone metabolismózinc, magnesium, copper and
manganese), 45 different trace minerals, Vitamin D3, Chondroitin
and Glucosamine. These bone-and-joint building nutrients are suspended
in a colloidal format that allows for optimum absorption.
CALCIUM : Calcium is important for bone and teeth development,
and it aids against the onset of osteoporosis.
GLUCOSAMINE : Glucosamine is important in
the manufacturing of cartilage. The body manufactures glucosamine
in small quantities. However, as we age that amount is decreased.
The function of glucosamine in the body is to stimulate the production
of glucosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are primarily structural components
of cartilage. Glucosamine is therefore involved in the formation
of ligaments, tendons, nails, skin, eyes, bones and heart valves.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE : Chondroitin Sulfate
is a Glucosaminoglycan. It is composed of repeating units of glucosamine.
Chondroitin Sulfate is taken up by cartilage and other joint structures.
Once in the cartilage, it stimulates the production of more Chondroitin
VITAMIN D3 : helps your body absorb and use
SUGGESTED USE :
For best results, this product should be taken with food.
Shake product well before using. It does not need
to be refrigerated.
Ideally, take 1/2 ounce twice daily. Take directly
or mix with one glass of your favorite beverage as desired. It is
not uncommon to experience intestinal cleansing due to the magnesium
found in OsteoProCare. If this occurs, reduce consumption by half
and slowly increase to recommended amount.
