👉 Osteoporosis is a disease where bones become thin, weak, brittle and prone to fracture especially the spine, wrists and hips.
👉 It is destructive and painless until the thinned and weakened bones break during a fall or knocking against a hard surface.
👉 Calcium and other minerals contribute to bone mineral density that helps strengthen and protect bones.
✅ The most abundant mineral in the body and makes up 1.5-2% of the body by weight with 99% of this in the skeleton.
✅ Most of the body's calcium is found in bones and teeth.
✅ This mineral is naturally found in foods, added to some, available as dietary supplement, and present in some medicines.
✅ An adequate intake helps grow a healthy skeleton in early life and minimize bone loss later in life.
✅ Calcium also plays an important role in regulating vital body processes such as blood coagulation, muscle contraction and nerve transmission.
What is amino acid chelated calcium, magnesium & zinc?
☑ Chelation naturally occurs during digestion, after stomach acid & enzymes break down protein into amino acids.
☑ Amino acids bind to minerals, assisting their transport through the intestinal walls.
☑ Unfortunately, the body is not efficient at producing chelated minerals.
Key Actions of Amino Acid Chelated Calcium, Magnesium & Zinc
✅Strong bone & teeth
✅Maintain proper function of muscle & nerve
✅Assist in calcium intake
✅Maintain body's proper pH balance
✅Promotes healthy immune system
✅Promote wound healing
✅Helps to prevent acne through regulation of oil gland
