Description

Osteoporosis and Fractures

Osteoporosis and fracture development is closely correlated with the loss of bone mass. In women, bone mass declines after the approximate age of 35. This bone mass loss progresses rapidly until menopause. After menopause, bone loss still occurs but the process slows down.

Furthermore, fracture risk is associated with the breakdown of the protein matrix (osteocalcin), and the support structure of bone upon which calcium crystallizes. The accumulation of many small fractures that occur due to repeated stress on bone also contribute to fracture risk. Therefore, the prevention of bone fractures must address adequate mineralization and loss of the protein matrix. It must also ensure the optimal functioning of necessary repair mechanisms in bone. Calcium alone is not enough.​

Bone is a living tissue. Like all living tissues, it is controlled by many complicated metabolic pathways. These pathways require numerous cofactors (vitamins and minerals) and other nutrients in order to function optimally.

Vitamins and Bone Formation​

Vitamin K forms part of an enzyme that is important in osteocalcin production. It's is also essential for bone formation and repair. Vitamin C, vitamin B6, copper and silicon also play a role in the protein matrix of bone. They are involved in different enzyme systems that are responsible for the cross linking or stabilization of collagen fibers. Magnesium, manganese and strontium are involved in the mineralization of bone. They form part of enzyme systems involved in this mineralization process.​

Vitamin D is also in our formula. It is especially important in cases where dietary intake and exposure to sunlight are inadequate (e.g. in the elderly). Furthermore, vitamin D is necessary for intestinal calcium absorption. Boron is necessary for bone health and seems to be important in vitamin D metabolism. It plays an important role in enzyme catalyzed hydroxylation reactions. Another ingredient in our formula, zinc, enhances the biochemical reactions of vitamin D and is also essential for normal bone formation.

Collagen​

Another important part of the support structure of the bone is collagen. Collagen may be compromised by the lack of adequate nutrients. For this reason, Proline and glycine are in our formula. They are the major structural amino acids of collagen.

Choose Wisely

The supplement you choose to prevent and slow down osteoporosis entails much more than a simple calcium formula. Our formula is 100% natural and meets all requirements in terms of additional enzyme systems, vitamins, and minerals.

Our Calcium Formulation is in a powder form that can be taken to suit individual requirements. Powders are already in a digested form with ascorbic acid (a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties) being the end product which gives rapid absorption and an optimal metabolism.​

Like all Metabole products, our Calcium Formulation contains NO artificial ingredients.​
