Bone Health & Calcium: Plant vs. Rock?
The most common form of calcium supplement today is derived from limestone (rock). Jagged, isolated, and with limited surface area, it can be difficult for the stomach to digest. It is also devoid of other key bone-nourishing nutrients.
The Whole-Food Difference
Calcium must be completely dissolved in order to be absorbed. Bone Strength Take Care is different. Plant-sourced, it delivers whole-food calcium, magnesium and 72 other trace minerals in a natural honey comb structure with an open surface area that is easy to digest and utilize. Calcium carbonate sourced from limestone has a much smaller, rocky surface area and is more difficult to dissolve.
The calcium complex in Bone Strength Take Care is derived from a natural plant form called Lithothamnion, sustainably harvested from pristine shores along the Icelandic coastline. Much like organic vegetables, this sea plant is allowed to mature naturally and then sustainably harvested to deliver its optimal nutritional value.
