Genestra - Cal Mag Liquid - 450 Millilitre(s) - NPN: 80029496 -- Cal Mag Vanilla Liquid + helps to maintain bone health and muscle function using a combination of organic calcium and magnesium citrate minerals, plus vitamins D and K. Osteoporosis is the primary cause of bone fractures in postmenopausal women 50 years and older, with an estimated 80% of all fractures in this group being osteoporosis related.1 Regular physical activity helps to maintain bone mass during aging, as bone metabolism is stimulated by the mechanical stress generated from impacts.2-5 However, supplementation with calcium and vitamin D may support bone formation even when incorporated into a low-impact physical exercise program. In a randomized clinical trial, 64 healthy postmenopausal women received 500 mg of calcium and 1000 IU of vitamin D daily while undergoing 6 months of low-impact aquatic exercise. At the end of the study period, there was a 15.8% increase in bone formation biomarker P1NP (precollagen type 1 amino-terminal propeptide) compared to baseline measurements.6 P1NP has been identified as a clinically relevant osteoporosis risk biomarker by the Bone Marker Standards Working Group.7 Vitamin K helps to maintain bone health, partly via the activation of gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (GLA) proteins involved in skeletal mineralization, such as matrix Gla protein (MGP) and osteocalcin.8,9 Low vitamin K status may impair the function of Gla proteins involved in regulation of bone mineralization.
Adults: Take one tablespoon daily with a meal, a few hours before or after taking other medication or natural health products, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Shake well before each use.
