Why does the new Bio-Calcium have less calcium
per capsule than the old formula?
When discussing calcium, the issue of how much is absorbed is far more important
than how much is taken. Further, calcium is measured in two ways on dietary
supplement packaging. You can either state the milligrams of the form of calcium
such as 400 mg of calcium citrate which yields about 180 mg of elemental calcium.
On the other hand you can express the calcium potency in elemental form from
the beginning such as 400 mg elemental calcium which yields 400 mg of calcium.
Bio-calcium is measured in elemental calcium per serving. With the supportive
minerals and trace minerals in the product, you have one of the most absorbable,
bio-available products in the marketplace.
CALCIUM-MAGNESIUM: Calcium is deficient in most of our diets. This deficiency
is most prevalent in women who have had children and have never supplemented
their own diets with calcium. Calcium consumption along with exercise is the
best means to prevent calcium deficiency. Once calcium is lost and signs of
osteopenia develop the medical problem may be hard to reverse. Collapse of bone
and fractures commonly of the pelvis may occur in such individuals. When people
"shrink" with age it is due to vertebral compression fractures caused by osteopenia,
commonly referred to as osteoporosis. Bone density studies will detect patients
having osteopenia. Calcium, like B complex acts as a membrane stabilizer and
natural tranquilizer as does magnesium and potassium. Calcium and magnesium
should be taken together in a ratio of 2:1. A daily intake of Calcium of 1,000
to 1,500 mg is reasonable. Calcium/magnesium may be taken at bedtime to promote
sleep. Magnesium in the form of magnesium oxide in combination with vitamin
B-6 has been shown to dissolve certain types of kidney stones (calcium oxalate
stones). This preparation is called Beefish and is taken twice a day. It is
also helpful in patients with chronic constipation since magnesium salts act
as cathartics. During pregnancy the intake of calcium and magnesium should be
increased to prevent deficiency in mother and child. Patients with potassium
deficiency should always be checked for magnesium deficiency. In the presence
of magnesium depletion, it is very difficult to replenish potassium stores using
inorganic colloidals. Plant derived colloidals are the best and most absorbable.
