Active Calcium Plus™
Active Calcium Plus is more than just calcium-it is carefully formulated, comprehensive bone health supplement.
The Benefits of Active Calcium Plus
Calcium is necessary for human life. Our body uses calcium for blood clotting, nerve conduction, cell division, and other physiological functions. To support these processes, calcium is frequently pulled from our bones, where 99 percent of our body;s calcium is found. Dietary calcium, along with other nutrients, is then used to help remodel our bone structure. But if our body consistently uses more calcium than is replaced within the bones, it may lead to bone loss.
Our bodies cannot produce calcium. This is why consuming proper amounts of this essential mineral is so crucial: adequate calcium, as part of a healthy diet, may help prevent bone loss. Most adults should consume 1000-2000mg of calcium from food and other supplements per day. USANA’s Active Calcium Plus can help ensure you get sufficient amounts of calcium everyday to help in the maintenance of your bones and teeth.
The Science of Active Calcium Plus
Our entire skeletal structure is not static. It constantly remodels itself,and every 10 years, we have an entirely new skeleton. This remodeling process requires sufficient amounts of calcium and vitamin D to form the bones properly. And, it here isn’t enough calcium or vitamin D available from the diet, it can result in bone loss and, possibly, osteoporosis. Adequate calcium and vitamin D as a part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life.
Vitamin D enhances both calcium absorption in the small intestine and calcium utilization in bone formation. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. It also influences the utilization of phosphorus, another mineral of magnesium from their diet.
The USANA Difference
Active Calcium Plus combines two forms of highly absorb-able, elemental calcium with additional bone-supporting ingredients that all complement each other to give you the best support for healthy bones, so your skeleton can continue to be your strongest supporter.
