New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care: Plant Sourced Whole Food Calcium

Categories: Bone Health, Osteoporosis, Womans Health

New Chapter is an excellent brand that is different from others as their line is always sourced from Whole Foods.  Their Bone Strength formula is

New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care

New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care

unlike any other as it is from plant source algae, not from rocks such as tradiational calciums.  We have many customers who love this calcium and Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus would like to share it with you!

Calcium Source: Plant Versus Rock

Many people think that all calcium supplements are created equal. The truth is that the most common form of calcium supplement today is derived from limestone or rock. We don’t eat rocks as part of our balanced diet, so why would we choose to supplement our bone health nutritional needs with limestone?

Our bodies understand and seek whole food sources of nutrition. That’s why New Chapter formulated Bone Strength Take Care with a whole-food plant source of calcium, magnesium, and other important trace minerals.

The calcium complex in Bone Strength Take Care is derived from a specific plant form called Lithothamnion Calcareum, 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.

Calcium must be completely dissolved in order to be absorbed. The plant-based calcium found in Bone Strength Take Care grows in a honeycomb structure and is extremely porous, which dramatically increases the calcium’s surface area. Stomach acid can then come into greater contact with the calcium, making it easy to dissolve. Calcium carbonate sourced from limestone has a much smaller, rocky surface area and is more difficult to dissolve.

The Calcium Paradox: Concerns with Heart Health

According to the National Institutes of Health, many people don’t get enough calcium from their diet, suggesting supplementation as an alternative to meet their daily required intake. Despite this dietary deficit, emerging research suggests that isolated calcium supplementation can increase cardiovascular risk.

Calcium supplementation alone is risky because calcium requires other nutrients to be properly utilized. The “calcium paradox” holds that without adequate Vitamin K, calcium will not be deposited in the bones where it is required for maintaining bone strength, but rather in the arteries and soft tissues where it can cause stiffening. It is therefore crucial that an effective bone health supplement be formulated with the necessary nutrients and minerals to ensure the optimal utilization of calcium.

TargetCal: Bones, Not Arteries

In addition to whole-food calcium, magnesium and trace minerals, Bone Strength Take Care is formulated with TargetCal® — a proprietary blend of whole-food vitamins designed to optimize calcium absorption and utilization and avoid the “calcium paradox.”

TargetCal provides a highly bioavailable, bioactive, and long-lasting form of natural Vitamin K2 (MK-7). Vitamin K2 is the most active form of Vitamin K in bones and arteries. This key nutrient helps put calcium into our bones where we need it, and helps keep calcium out of our arteries, where we don’t. Vitamin K2 (MK-7), sourced from fermented whole food, gently redirects “lost” calcium back into the bone bank.

The TargetCal complex is completed by Vitamin D3 — which is important for calcium absorption and has been found to aid in bone support and function.* New Chapter creates whole-food complexed Vitamin D3 by culturing the nutrient with probiotics and organic whole foods.

Beyond Bone Health: Joint Health and More

In addition to the primary benefit of promoting bone health, the ingredients in Bone Strength Take Care also provide other health benefits — including joint, cardiovascular, and eye health.* The plant-source of calcium found in Bone Strength Take Care has been shown to significantly promote joint health in a placebo-controlled human clinical trial.*

Whole-Food Vitamins D3 and K1, along with Natural Vitamin K2 and Calcium have been shown to promote numerous components of cardiovascular health.* Whole-food Vitamin D3 provides many other benefits including eye, immune, digestive, and respiratory health.*

Preferred Nutrition – Vitamin K2 (MK-7 from Natto Bean) Strong Bones, Healthy Heart!!

Categories: Bone Health, FLYER SALE!, Heart Health, Osteoporosis, Savings At Alive!, Womans Health

BEAT Osteoporosis with Vitamin K2, before Osteoporosis comes along and beats you.  Osteoporosis can be quite debilitating and anyone who is living with this will tell you… prevention is key!  Take the time to know what supplements are safe and in turn will be your friend. 

Right now is our Spring into Action flyer and Preferred Nutrition Vitamin K2 is in the flyer.  Below is the write up that is in the flyer.

Preferred Nutrition – Vitamin K2 (MK-7 from Natto Bean) Strong Bones, Healthy Heart!!

Many women think, “I take a calcium so I am covered.” Ladies think again… research shows K2 helps guide calcium towards the areas of the body where it is needed, such as your skeleton and bones, and away from areas where it could have a negative effect, such as the arteries and cardiovascular system. K2 is a group of fat-soluble vitamins long known for their role in blood clotting and for reduction of heavy bleeding during menstruation, bruising and nosebleeds. Clinical studies show that K2 deficiency in bone and in blood vessels exists in many healthy adults. K2 was once found in Green leafy vegetables, however, many foods considered rich in K2 have proven to have much less than originally thought. Don’t wait to break a bone take Preferred Nutrition’s Vitamin K2 (MK-7 form) as it is Highly absorbable and will help: promote cardiovascular health, healthy bones, is ideal for osteoporosis concerns and boosts the immune system!!

Vitamin D

Categories: Bone Health, Cancer, Depression, Diabetes, Immune System, Osteoporosis, Sleep, Womans Health

We all have heard a lot about Vitamin D and how important it is to have adequate amounts especially during the winter.  This article is a reminder to take your Vitamin D this winter.  Most of you know about Vitamin D, but sometimes it sits on the counter and we forget to take it.  Below will remind you of the reasons you shouldn’t forget.

Research states that Vitamin D deficiency in adults can lead to osteopenia, osteoporosis, depressed moods, sleeping problems, muscle weakness, fractures, cancers, autoimmune diseases, and cardiovascular diseases. There is also some evidence that Vitamin D may reduce several types of cancer and type-1 diabetes.  Many of us especially women walk around with tiny little fractures and silcea is a mineral that is very important to combat against osteopenia (the precursor of osteoporosis) but Vitamin D also plays a vital role in preventing fractures.  Vitamin D helps absorb your calcium so it is not not just sitting there doing nothing.  Reality is calcium is useless if it doesn’t get absorbed so make sure you take a good form of calcium, such as a calcium citrate with Vitamin D and magnesium.  Keep in mind there are even better calciums such as Coral Calcium and if you are older, already have osteoporosis, or there is osteoporosis in your family the AOR Brand Bone Basics is top notch.  At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus we can take the time to explain all the differences and we can find you what suites your needs based on gender, age, family history etc.   

So how much Vitamin D should you take?

There are many answers.  The recommended daily value still remains at 1000iu for adults.  Then there are other factors such as: age, your current health condition (for example if you have osteoporosis), and where you live.  Basically at the moment somewhere between 1000iu and 2000iu is good.  However, there are many studies where people have reversed osteoporosis with very high levels of vitamin D, and if you wish to do this see your doctor or your naturopath.   Another point about Vitamin D is many people say  “the sun gives you Vitamin D.” Remember that your body produces the Vitamin D, but when the sun is absent, your body cannot produce it. 

Good Brands?

There are many: Natural Factors, AOR Drops, Sisu Sublingual, those are some suggestions.

So keep things simple this winter, elevate your mood and keep yourself healthy by remembering to take your Vitamin D.  Vitamin D3 is what you will be looking for in the health store.  As always we look forward to helping you with your health care needs at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus! Take care and thanks for reading.
