Calcium is one of the most important minerals and is essential for building and maintaining healthy bones. Calcium is also essential for the proper functioning of the brain, heart, and muscles. Calcium plays an important role in lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, fat absorption, gum disease, and insomnia. Women lose an average of 15% of their bone mass during menopause, therefore calcium supplementation is essential. Calcium glycinate is the most bioavailable and most soluble form of supplemental calcium. It is 180% better absorbed than calcium citrate and 21% better absorbed than calcium citrate-malate. Vitamin D3 is required for optimal absorption of calcium. Boron plays an important role in mineral metabolism, by preventing calcium loss and bone demineralisation.
Calcium and vitamin D supplementation supports the maintenance of bone mass and integrity by increasing bone mineral density. Boron plays a role in mineral metabolism and appears to support hyper-absorption of calcium.
