Calcium may be the most important mineral for the maintenance of bone structure.
Natural processes of aging cause our bones to become more porous as the osteoclasts, cells which are necessary for new bone growth, age. In addition, much of our diet is high in phosphates and acidic compounds which may leach calcium from the bones. Calcium citrate has been shown to be the most absorbable form of calcium and the addition of Vitamin D3 has been shown to aid in systemic calcium absorption and use.ϯ Below you will find knowledge and information to help you learn how adding a Calcium Citrate supplement to your diet may support your healthy lifestyle.

Calcium Citrate is considered the be the more absorbable form of calcium. Most calcium supplements are largely composed of calcium carbonate which is difficult for the body to absorb as it is a tightly bound mineral salt. Calcium Citrate is different as once in the stomach, it is easily converted to an absorbable calcium molecule. As we age, our bones naturally lose much of the calcium content responsible for maintenance of the bone structure. In addition, most Americans are no longer spending a significant amount of time in the sunlight, which is the only way the body can manufacture Vitamin D. Calcium is necessary, not only for bone health, but also for muscle signal transmission, particularly in the cardiac system. ϯ
Why This Formula?
aVivoPur Active Calcium-Citrate provides the most absorbable form of calcium. Rather than the chalky, difficult to absorb calcium carbonate which is mainly sourced from oyster shells, our product is obtained from natural, non-animal sources. We have included Vitamin D3, an active form of the vitamin to act synergistically with calcium. Vitamin D3 aids in calcium absorption and utilization within the body. ϯ Also consider Food Based Calcium & Magnesium
