Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body with 99% of it deposited in the bones and teeth. The remaining 1% of calcium is used for numerous functions including muscle contraction, blood clotting, vitamin D metabolism and nerve transmission. 


It is necessary for normal functioning of nerves, cells, muscle, and bone. If there is not enough calcium in the blood, then the body will take calcium from bones, thereby weakening bones.

But when it comes to taking calcium, some people may not find it practical or possible to meet the recommended daily intake (RDI) from diet alone. For adults, the RDI is 1,000 milligrams (mg) daily, which rises to 1,200 mg per day for women over age 50 and men over age 70.
 

For calcium, the amount you need depends on your age and sex.

  • All adults 19-50:                      1,000 milligrams
  • Adult men 51-70:                    1,000 milligrams
  • Adult women 51-70:               1,200 milligrams
  • All adults 71 and older:          1,200 milligrams
  • Pregnant/breastfeeding women:         1,000 milligrams

What is osteoporosis?

The components of the word 'osteoporosis' literally mean 'porous bones' - 'osteo' is for bones, and 'porosis' means porous - helpfully describing this condition that results in reduced bone density and increased fragility of the bones.The thinning of the bones in osteoporosis, combined with the formation of weaker bone crystals, puts people at a higher risk of fractures.

Although osteoporosis itself does not directly increase the risk of falls, people who have osteoporosis have a higher risk of breaking a bone if they fall, with common sites of fracture including the hip, spinal vertebrae and wrist

 
 
  • Osteoporosis is a bone disease affecting the bone structure and strength of bone, raising the risk of fractures.
  • Postmenopausal women are most likely to develop the condition, but it also affects men and younger people across all genders.
  • Some risk factors for osteoporosis are modifiable, such as smoking and poor nutrition.
  • Osteoporosis is often considered a silent disease as there are no clear outward symptoms caused by the loss of bone density (although bone pain may occur in some people).
  • Fractures are most likely in the spine, hip and wrists.
  • Diagnosis is made directly via a special X-ray-based scan, and sometimes through ultrasound.
  • Treatments include drugs that prevent or slow down bone loss, exercise programs, and dietary adjustments, including extra calciummagnesium and vitamin D.
  • It is important for people with osteoporosis to take measures to avoid falls so as to reduce the risk of fractures (which can prove fatal).
 
 
 

What form of calcium?

Choosing calcium supplements

 

When looking at calcium supplements, consider these factors:

Amount of calcium

Elemental calcium is key because it's the actual amount of calcium in the tablet determining how much calcium is in one serving.

 

Tolerability

Calcium supplements cause few, if any, side effects. But side effects can sometimes occur, including gas, constipation and bloating. 

Quality and cost

Standards for quality, purity, potency, and tablet disintegration or dissolution are important. .

Absorbability

Your body must be able to absorb the calcium for it to be effective. All varieties of calcium supplements are better absorbed when taken in small doses (500 mg or less) at mealtimes. Calcium citrate Maleate is absorbed equally well when taken with or without food.

 

CALCIUM CITRATE MALEATE

           Calcium Citrate Maleate (CCM) is a water-soluble calcium salt of citric acid and malic acid.   

Calcium citrate malate's bioavailability stems from its water-solubility and its method of dissolution. When dissolved, it releases calcium ions and a calcium citrate complex. Calcium ions are absorbed directly into intestinal cells, and the citrate complex enters the body through paracellular absorption. 

Calcium citrate malate plays a very important role in the body. It is necessary for normal functioning of nerves, cells, muscle, and bone. If there is not enough calcium in the blood, then the body will take calcium from bones, thereby weakening bones. If your product contains calcium citrate maleate, then it may be taken with or without food. 

Calcium citrate malate has been shown to support healthier bones in adolescents and adults

Studies have suggested that calcium citrate maleate is better absorbed than calcium carbonates and that the citrate form might thus be more effective in helping to prevent or ameliorate bone loss.

 An analysis of 15 randomized trials concluded that calcium citrate maleate was absorbed  around 27% better than calcium carbonate, whether taken on an empty stomach or with food. 

Vitamin D
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is manufactured in the human skin when the skin comes in contact with the UV (ultraviolet) light from the sun. When Vitamin D is ingested into the body in foods or in supplementation, it is absorbed through the intestinal walls. 

In the body, Vitamin D is most important in helping to regulate calcium metabolism for the cardiovascular system as well as helping to strengthen the bones in the body. Vitamin D is very important in children’s growth and parents should ensure a balance of calcium, magnesium, and Vitamin D in their growing children. 

Magnesium
Healthy bones and teeth also require magnesium. About sixty percent of the body’s magnesium resides in the bones. There it works to give some flexibility to the bones and also serves as a storage site for the rest of the body. Magnesium may help prevent cavities by holding calcium in the enamel of the tooth.

More than 300 enzyme systems in the body are dependent upon magnesium. It acts as a catalyst, or sort of a spark plug, to trigger the reactions that provide energy to the cells. It is an essential part of the cell’s machinery to build and repair proteins. Magnesium promotes the relaxation phase of muscle activity and, along with calcium, helps nerve cells communicate with each other in the nervous system. 

Zinc

Although calcium is the mineral most associated with bone formation, zinc is also found in the bones.

Although it makes up a small percentage of the bone, zinc is needed to form hydroxylapatite which is a naturally occurring crystalline calcium complex. Hydroxylapatite crystals form the bulk of bones and teeth.

Therefore, zinc is important to the proper mineralization of bones by contributing to its bone mass.

Zinc can also improve bone health indirectly by other means. For example, zinc promotes wound healing and enhances the functions of the immune system.

Therefore, zinc supplementation can help speed up the healing of fractured bones and ensure that the immune system protects bones from infections and toxins.

However, the major contributions of zinc to bone health are through its regulation of bone formation and bone resorption as well as its ability to affect the level of insulin-like growth factor.
