This supplement is used to prevent or treat low blood calcium levels in people who do not get enough calcium from their diet. It may be used to treat condi tions caused by low calcium levels such as bone loss (osteoporosis), weak bones (osteomalacia/rickets), decreased activity of the parathyroid gland (hypoparathyroidism) and a certain muscle disease (latent tetany).
Calcium plays a very important role in the body. It is necessary for normal functioning of nerves, cells, muscle, and bone.
HOW IT WORKS :
ELCAL-M is an innovative form of calcium developed by Expert Health Solutions. The company launched this mineral complex in 2008, seeking to improve the existing malates on the market by maximizing the elemental metal potential for the malate ligand. Because each molecule of malic acid has two carboxyl groups instead of one, a calcium ion can be attached at each carboxyl site—effectively doubling the amount of calcium obtained from the malate complex.
Calcium citrate malate (CCM) is a water-soluble calcium supplement. It is the calcium salt of citric acid and malic acid. Calcium citrate malate’s bioavailability stems from its water solubility and its method of dissolution. When dissolved, it releases calcium ions and a calcium citrate complex. Calcium ions are absorbed directly into intestinal cells, and the citrate complex enters the body through paracellular absorption. CCM has been shown to facilitate calcium retention and bone accrual in children and adolescents. In adults, it effectively promotes the consolidation and maintenance of bone mass. In conjunction with vitamin D, CCM also decreases bone fracture risk in the elderly, slows the rate of bone loss in old age, and is of benefit to the health and well-being of postmenopausal women. CCM is exceptional in that it confers many unique benefits that go beyond bone health. CCM can be consumed with or without food and delivers a significant nutritional benefit to individuals of all ages.
Chelating* calcium to malic acid enhances bioavailability and solubility, delivering an important mineral with the energy-enhancing power of the fruit acid.
