 Calcium - not just for women!

Calcium is a fact of life. So is its deficiency. A recent National Institutes of Health conference found that a large percentage of Americans fail to meet the minimum requirements for optimal calcium intake. The consensus panel of the conference concluded that optimal intake varies, ranging from 400 mg/day to 2,000 mg/day, from newborn babies to the elderly. While dietary factors - hormones, drugs, age, and genetics - may influence the amount of calcium required for optimal skeletal health, adequate vitamin D intake was found to be essential for optimal calcium absorption.
Calcium intake, up to a total of 2,000 mg/day, appears to be safe in most people. Yet most individuals cannot obtain this amount from foods, even through dairy products, and thus calcium supplements, are appropriate. Recognizing the difficulties of understanding how to choose a good calcium supplement, our scientist have placed their thinking caps on yet again and come forward with what may be the most inclusive formulation on the market.

 


What makes BoneFix so different from all the other calcium products on the market?
BoneFix contains tricalcium phosphate, calcium citrate, and calcium ascorbate, among other important components. Other supplements often contain types of calcium that may not be absorbed by the body very efficiently.

Calcium carbonate, the one found in Coral Calcium, is difficult to absorb in the absence of adequate amounts of stomach acid. BoneFix contains calcium citrate (a chelate) and calcium ascorbate (a complex). These forms of calcium do not require any stomach acid; they are thus quite bioavailable. The third calcium, tricalcium phosphate, is closely related to the type that you have in your bones. Tricalcium phosphate is also called 'bone ash,' and differs from the calcium in your bones by having a different crystal structure and by being dehydroxylated, which results in lower acid requirements for dissolution and absorption. Other than the lower stomach acid requirement, it is absorbed and transported by the same mechanisms as bone calcium, a form of calcium that omnivores and carnivores have been consuming for hundreds of millions of years, unlike calcium carbonate. (Calcium carbonate is a good antacid because it uses up so much stomach acid; if you are not producing excess stomach acid, calcium carbonate - such as oyster shells or limestone - is not your best choice.)
Calcium citrate is a calcium/citric acid complex. Your stomach lining has pumps, which pull the citric acid from the lumen of your intestines, in order to transport the calcium/citric acid complex across the intestinal tissue and into your blood stream. Your gut also has very active pumps for vitamin C. These pumps drive vitamin C from the lumen of the intestine across the intestinal tissue into the blood stream. And since vitamin C is bound with calcium (calcium ascorbate is a calcium/vitamin C complex), calcium is carried along with it. In fact, there is a significant amount of evidence that suggests that calcium metabolism and your ability to absorb calcium declines very substantially if you don't have enough vitamin C, which is another good reason for including vitamin C.
In addition to the vitamin C, we also have vitamin D, because it is necessary for proper calcium transport and metabolism and a lot of people simply aren't getting enough. If you run around naked all summer, you'd get plenty of vitamin D, but you also put yourself at risk for getting skin cancer.

Unless you're drinking adequate amounts of vitamin-D-fortified milk, it is unlikely you're getting enough vitamin D. And it's been found that for elderly people, vitamin D deficiency is a very serious problem.
Four capsules of our BoneFix contain 800 IU of vitamin D, the amount contained in 1/2 gallon of fortified milk. The Complex also contains beta-carotene. If you don't have enough vitamin A, your body can convert beta-carotene to vitamin A; but if you have enough vitamin A, your body will leave the beta-carotene alone. You must be careful about taking too much vitamin A. In some elderly people who have liver damage, toxic effects have been seen at as little as 15,000 IU a day. But that doesn't happen with beta-carotene, because your body shuts off the conversion of beta-carotene to vitamin A when you have adequate amounts.
Vitamin A is important for the regulation of vitamin D receptors. As you can see there is so much more than plain ordinary calcium in our BoneFix. Take BoneFix four times a day along with our other vitamin supplements when you get up in the morning, at lunch, with dinner and at bedtime.

I live in London and have not found anything to help with my osteoporosis like BoneFix. Is there anyway to be able to get in in London so I don't have to pay high shipping costs? Can I sell it here for you? I love this product and know many people who would benefit from BoneFix. Dove Errosteli

I've lost 35 pounds on the HealthyFix Solution but but at a plateau and couldn't lose the last 5 pounds. After adding the BoneFix my weight started dropping. It's been amazing! I've heard Calcium is important for weight loss but I had no idea it was the important. Thanks, Ann.

Review:
I just received my bone density test from my doctor and was amazed. I am 52 year old athletic and healthy female. Two years ago found out that I had onset osteoporosis. I did not want to have to take medication so I made a deal with my doctor. I told him I had been taking HealthyFix supplements since 1989 but had not been taking the calcium product since I didn't think I needed it. I heard the stories of others who had done very well on the BoneFix. It's been 2 years and I have not shown any loss of bone density. I realize I may eventually have to start taking osteoporosis meds but if BoneFix will help me delay that; I am very happy! So far, looks like it will. Thank you HealthyFix. Also, thanks to my consultant, Ann for all your help and advise. Harriet

Review:
I would have never thought I'd be writing to tell anyone about a calcium product but I just have to say how much I love the BoneFix. I am 46 years old and diagnosed with osteopenia which is the onset of osteoporosis. My doctor said I was way too young and needed to get on medicine to stop the progression of this disease. I have taken the HealthyFix products for years now and remember hearing about the BoneFix and how it had helped so many others. I told my doctor to give me a year to try BoneFix. He looked at the bottle said it looked like it had everything I needed but doubted it would make a difference. I took 8 capsules throughout the day for one year. After one year he could not believe the difference in my bone density test and told me to keep doing what I am doing and I may never have to take prescription drugs to treat my disease.

In addition to all the other HealthyFix products I especially love the BoneFix. I worry about osteoporosis since it runs in my family. My doctor wanted to put me on medication. I told him to give me a year to see what I could do on my own. I took BoneFix 3 times a day. My last check up my doctor said I did not need any mediation and my bones looked fine. He added to
