Extended Information: Bones are made up of hard, extremely dense connective tissue that is constantly rebuilding itself in order to maintain a balance between bone formation and bone loss. As such, skeletal tissue relies on the correct supply and balance of nutrients in order to maintain a healthy density. Food and population studies indicate that most people are not getting enough calcium from their diet, particularly women. A large body of evidence spanning over two decades has confirmed that high calcium intakes reduce age-related bone loss. For New Zealanders the daily intake of calcium is thought to average about 850mg per day. While these estimates are higher than American and Canadian statistics of 600mg/day2they still fall short of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of 1200-1300mg/day for men and women over the age of 50. Research has shown that mineral nutrition for healthy bones depends on more than just calcium; magnesium, trace minerals and certain vitamins also play a vital role in effective mineral fortification. Clinicians Bone Care Complete contains a unique ingredient called Aquamin a mineralized seaweed that is rich in bioactive calcium. Aquamin also contains a number of other minerals including magnesium, boron, copper, manganese, silicon and zinc – all of which play an important role in maintaining strong bones. In addition to Aquamin, Clinicians Bone Care Complete contains magnesium a macro mineral thought to be as important as calcium for bone health. Daily supplementation with 250mg or more of magnesium can help increase bone mineral density. The trace minerals boron, manganese and zinc positively affect bone health in a number of ways. For example, boron reduces urinary loses of calcium and magnesium and converts vitamin D to its active form. Manganese acts as a cofactor for a number of enzymes involved in healthy bone and cartilage tissue and zinc aids in bone formation and collagen synthesis. The fat soluble vitamins D and K enhance calcium absorption, increase bone formation and help reduce the risk of fractures. The vast array of nutrients in Clinicians Bone Care Complete can help address dietary insufficiencies, body acidity and bone health.
