Calcium ComplexBone Bricks
Your body does not produce calcium, so you must get it through other sources. Your body needs calcium to build and maintain strong, healthy bones. Your heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly.
Research suggests that the components in our Calcium Complex:
Are essential for development, growth, and maintenance of bones
Help regulate muscle contraction
Aid the cardiovascular system
Help ease PMS symptoms
Have powerful antioxidant properties
No Artificial Additives
A unique formula
We add vitamins D and K2 to our Calcium Complex, two co-factors that increase absorbtion and bioavailbility.
Gram for gram, spirulina is lauded as being one of the most nutritious foods on the planet.
Benefits backed by science
Heart & Veins
When in the bloodstream, calcium releases hormones such as insulin, and regulates both muscle contraction and nerve signals.
Bones have their personal calcium bank that gets eroded while maintaining muscle mobility. Calcium supplements remineralise bones and maintain bone mass.
Prenatal & Postnatal health
Your developing baby needs calcium to build strong bones and teeth, healthy heart, nerves, muscles, and blood clotting abilities.
The body requires calcium for smooth muscle action and for nerves to carry messages from brain to other body parts and back.
Why take our Calcium Complex
Vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 ensure that calcium is absorbed easily and reaches the bone mass, while preventing arterial calcification, helping to keep your heart and bones healthy. Vitamin D3 ensures that calcium is absorbed easily and vitamin K2 activates the protein osteocalcin, which integrates calcium into bone. Without D3 and K2, calcium cannot do its job effectively.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae, and is believed to be one of the oldest life forms on Earth. First used by the Aztecs as an endurance-booster, spirulina is considered a superfood — an all-in-one source of nutrients. It contains a powerful plant-based protein called phycocyanin. Research shows phycocyanin may have antioxidant, pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, and brain-protecting properties.
For your bones: Did you know that over 99% of your body’s calcium is stored in your bones and teeth? Our scientists recommend supplementing calcium to women who have reached menopause and for those who may not be getting enough of the nutrient from food (for example, those who do not consume dairy products). Calcium is critical for your body to build and maintain bone strength.
For your blood: Calcium is important when it’s released into the bloodstream. It releases hormones, such as insulin, and regulates both muscle contraction and nerve signals.
Research suggests the best time to take Calcium Complex is in the evening for better absorption. Some minerals tend to compete for absorption (e.g. Iron, magnesium, calcium), so they should be taken separately with 2 hours apart. It is also better to take calcium separate from alcohol, caffeine and sodium rich food.
It is recommended for everyone to balance the variety of food so you get a nutrient rich diet. However for some people it can be difficult to obtain appropriate calcium through their diet alone. These groups may include:
Older adults: With increasing age comes decreased absorption of calcium. Therefore middle aged or older people may need to consider calcium supplementation to keep their bones and muscles healthy.
Menopausal women: It is extremely important for women going through pre-menopause and post-menopause years to sustain calcium and avoid bone loss during the process.
Strict vegetarians/vegans: People who are strictly on a plant based diet and do not consume dairy at all, must consider calcium supplementation to avoid weakening of bones in later stages of the deficiency.
Yes. Research suggests supplementing with spirulina may:
Aid weight loss
Improve gut health
Lower blood pressure
Help lessen risk of heart disease
Reduce allergy symptoms
Support mental health
Calcium and vitamin D are team players when it comes to bone and dental health. Vitamin D increases calcium absorption from the gut and stops any excess excretion of calcium in our urine. Vitamin D is calcium’s little helper for making our bones and teeth strong and robust.
