Calcium is the most plentiful mineral in the body, with almost all of it found in the bones and teeth. The remaining calcium is used for various bodily functions such as muscle contraction, blood clotting, and nerve communication. Along with phosphorus, magnesium, and other minerals, Calcium helps build and maintain bones and teeth.
Microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) is the substance that gives bone its hardness. MCHA is an extremely bioavailable form of calcium and phosphorus, and provides superior absorption compared to traditional forms of calcium. Bone Strength Formula also contains magnesium (the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and essential to good health), trace minerals, and targeted vitamins such as C, D and K, which help to support healthy bone tissue.
Indicated for supporting the health and strength of the bones and teeth. Calcium may also be effective for the support of colon health. Health Functions:
