Now Foods Calcium Citrate is a high-quality preparation designed to maintain health and well-being for longer due to comprehensive effects on the skeletal, muscular and hormonal systems. The unique formula of tablets containing not only calcium, but also vitamin D to support its absorption, and other extremely important minerals (magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese) is an indispensable addition to a healthy diet as a supplement to many deficiencies.

Calcium citrate is a calcium salt with citric acid. It is an intermediate product during the isolation of citric acid while fermentation, where the acid is industrially produced. For many people, the bioavailability of calcium citrate is equal to that of calcium carbonate. However, in the digestive system, there may be processes causing changes in calcium absorption. Unlike alkaline carbonate, which neutralizes hydrochloric acid in the stomach, calcium citrate has no such effect.

The ability of the small intestine to absorb calcium salts depends on their solubility and ionization. These properties vary for different salts, but consumption of calcium citrate on an empty stomach is better absorbed than that of lactoglucan or carbonate. Calcium citrate preparations taken between meals may help in the prevention of dilation and flatulence in the abdomen and reduce the risk of calcium deposition in the kidneys.

Combination with vitamin D in the prevention of osteoporosis
The combination of calcium and vitamin D is the basis for prophylactic and therapeutic treatment in the cure of osteoporosis. Many studies indicate that the combination of calcium with cholecalciferol is effective at doses of 1200mg and 800 IU per day. In addition, treatment with this combination appears to be effective in reducing the formation of hip bone fractures. In all drug trials (antiresorptive and anabolic factors and strontium ranelate), which showed a reduction in the risk of fractures as a result of osteoporosis, patients also received calcium and vitamin D supplements.

Healthy growth and bone development
As much as 99% of calcium contained in our body can be found in bone tissue and teeth. It is an essential ingredient both for the growth and development of bones in children who need it particularly, but also for maintaining their health in adults. Calcium supports bone strengthening until they reach the age of 20-25. Then the density of our bones is the greatest. After that, with the passage of time, their density is being gradually reduced. Calcium helps to slow down this inevitable process and keeps the bone system in the best condition for a long time.

Improvement of muscle contractility
Calcium regulates the formation of muscle contractions not only of the skeletal system, but also of our heart, which works constantly. When nerve endings stimulate the muscle, calcium is released. It is essential for muscle proteins to induce labor and form a contraction. Its diastole occurs only when calcium is pumped back.

Effects on a proper blood coagulation
Calcium plays an important role in maintaining the proper level of blood clotting. The coagulation process is a complicated path consisting of many stages in which many chemicals, including calcium, take part. It is an indispensable component of this process.

In conclusion, Now Foods Calcium Citrate is calcium in the best formula which is crucial when taking care of for the health of the cardiovascular system, bones and muscles. It is a composition that provides great absorption and is necessary to maintain proper muscle contractility, and consequently - also fitness and well-being. It can also reduce the risk of osteoporosis. In this way, we have the opportunity to enjoy strong bones and physical activity for a long time.

Vitamin D

Information

Vitamin D belongs to fat soluble vitamins, occurs in three forms: calciferol (vitamin D1) ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), it is formed under the action of sunlight for at least 15 minutes per day. In the absence of sunlight it should be administered in the diet in the form of fish oil (Vitamin A + D3) and fish oils. It is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It is the building substance of bone tissue particularly necessary during pregnancy, childhood, and for athletes. It is a component of dietary supplements and nutrients among competetive athletes. Deficiency of vitamin D causes children growth inhibition, and rickets.
For adults - deficiency causes osteomalacia.
Excess
of vitamin D causes headaches, alopecia, nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, pain in the long bones, the deposition of calcium deposits.
Dosage: 400 IU units during the day.


 

Calcium

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess result
ing from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications
are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)

Magnesium

Information

Magnesium (element from the group of alkaline earth metals, atomic no. 12, a chemical symbol - Mg), one of the most important health microelements, participates in the synthesis process of the disintegration of high energy compounds and processes of transformation of hydrocarbons and fats. It affects the dilation of blood vessels and lower blood pressure, prevents hypercoagulable state. Shortages affect cardiac arrhythmias, malignant muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. It is a component of many dietary supplements and found in foods such as whole grain bread, legumes, buckwheat, rice, fish, meat, as well as chocolate, cocoa and nuts.
Dosage of 100 - 500 mg / day

Magnesium oxide

Information

Magnesium oxide – the most common form of this macroelement in supplementation that is essential to the human body. It belongs to a group of key intracellular cations and that is why its adequate levels are critical to maintaining the body’s homeostasis. An active lifestyle increases requirements for magnesium and that is why its supplementation is recommended strongly to athletes.

The most common symptoms associated with magnesium deficiencies are muscle cramps and eye twitches. This is connected with a significant impact of magnesium ions on the efficiency of the nervous system. Its adequate intake helps maintain neuromotor fitness. Deficiencies of this element are also said to aggravate symptoms of depression.

What is more, magnesium supplementation supports healthy cardiovascular function. It is suggested that its deficiencies promote the development of atherosclerotic lesions and hypertension. Too low dietary magnesium intake is associated with arrythmia and increased risk of heart attack.

Magnesium supplements are recommended to individuals doing hard mental work and learning. Its healthy levels enhance focus and may facilitate learning. It has a beneficial impact on sleep quality.

Magnesium aspartate

Information

Asparaganian magnesium (chelate magnesium and aspartic acid) is an organic magnesium form characterized by absorption and stability in the body. Magnesium is actively involved in energy conversion (necessary in the process of ATP). Intracellular cation, stored in the bones, partly in soft tissues and minimal quantity in the extracellular fluid. Maintains a proper bone structure, nucleic acids and chromosomes. It is an activator of enzymes involved in the synthesis of protein, stabilizes cell membranes, conducts nerve impulses and increases contractility of nerve fibres.
Deficiencies of magnesium in the body are causing disorder of the immune system and water-electrolyte balanace, causing greater susceptibility to stress, irritability and insomnia. Magnesium deficiency can cause cardiac arrhythmias, uncontrolled muscle contractions, numbness in the limbs.
Asparganian Magnesium is a component of the mineral preparations (including ZMA), vitamin and mineral and pro-testosterone supplements used in sports supplementation.
Dosage: based on Mg ions, 100-500 mg per day.


 

Zinc

Information


Zinc (chemical element from transition group 12) belongs to the trace elements, it helps maintain acid-base balance of the body, protein, energy, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It provides bone metabolism and transport of oxygen. It protects the body against free radicals. Necessary for the proper operation of the senses of taste and smell. Positive impact on the process of insulin metabolism in the pancreas. It supports visual adaptation to the dark, has a significant influence on brain function. It is helpful in the treatment of infertility and mental illness.
Zinc deficiency leads to decreased immunity, and growth retardation. Zinc deficiency can occur in case of excessive consumption of simple sugars. In the case of hormonal therapy of women with irregular menstruation, the therapy should be associated with increased consumption of zinc. It can be found in food like: beans, eggs, carrots, beef and pork meat, milk, nuts, citrus fruits, seafood, rice, cottage cheese, lettuce.
Dosage: Daily 12-15 mg zinc. Exceeding the daily dose of 20 mg cause symptoms of poisoning of the body.

 

Copper

Information

Copper - trace mineral that facilitates the introduction of iron into hemoglobin, allowing the correct functioning of antioxidant processes. It is an important component of enzymes that affect the processes of aerobic metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism and in the formation of collagen. With proper diet, do not use supplements containing copper, as an overdose can cause insomnia, hair loss. It occurs in foods such as legumes, offal, plums, seafood. Copper compounds must be used in a responsible way, because many of them have toxic properties.
Dosing: A sufficient amount of copper provides proper diet.


 

Manganese

Information

Manganese, of which a natural source is chocolate, grain products with whole grain, nuts, legumes and dried cranberry, is a component of enzymes and their activator. It stimulates the properties and functionality of connective tissue and provides proper functioning of the brain. It affects the function of the pancreas, ensuring proper insulin metabolism and condition of the bone and joints. Magnesium deficiency contributes to serious disorders in synthesis of hyaluronic acid and chondroitin, reduction in insulin sensitivity of tissues, affects bone resorption. Manganese chelates are used in complexometry in chemical analysis and in medicine for the treatment of severe poisoning (antitoxin) by heavy metals, in sports supplementation, manganese impact on the functioning of the locomotor system is used. It is a component of the so-called regenerators of joints and a vitamin-mineralizing and mineralizing supplements.
