You want strong and healthy bones, so the question you need to ask yourself is, are you getting enough vitamin D? Because of limited time in the sun and an inadequate amount in the average diet, there is growing concern that Americans are not meeting the recommended amount of vitamin D. It’s important for your body’s structure and the integrity of your bones to absorb the right levels of calcium and magnesium, and vitamin D helps this process. The benefits of having strong bones include preventing bone fracture and even avoiding osteoporosis later in life. Active Calcium is a balanced and complete formula of these important ingredients. And what makes Active Calcium “active” is the fact that the ingredients are bioavailable. For a calcium supplement to be effective, it must be absorbable, and USANA’s Active Calcium’s formula is the outstanding choice among competitors.
Bone and Joint Health
It’s easy to forget that bones are comprised of living tissue, with minerals being constantly deposited and withdrawn. In healthy adults, the rate of bone loss is roughly equal to the rate of bone gain. However, as we age, a deficiency of minerals can contribute to accelerated bone loss and ultimately osteoporosis. Our Bone and Joint Health supplements provide you with essential building blocks of healthy bones and joints.
