Calcium Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite, supplies 500 mg of
elemental calcium from 2,000 mg of microcrystalline
hydroxyapatite(MCHC), a bioavailable source of
calcium derived from whole bone.
The adult human body contains approximately 1,200 g
of calcium, about 99% of which is present in the
skeleton. Bone is constantly turning over, a continuous
process of formation and resorption.
In children and
adolescents, the rate of formation of bone mineral
predominates over the rate of resorption. In later life,
resorption predominates over formation. Therefore, in
normal aging, there is a gradual loss of bone.
Osteoporosis, a condition of reduced bone mineral
density that can increase risk of fractures, affects a large
proportion of the elderly in developed countries.
Caucasian and Asian women typically have low peak
bone densities, and therefore, are at the greatest risk of
It is generally accepted that
obtaining enough dietary calcium throughout life can
significantly decrease the risk of developing
osteoporosis. Among other factors, such as regular
exercise, gender and race, calcium supplementation
during childhood and adolescence appears to be a
prerequisite for maintaining adequate bone density later
in life. But even elderly osteoporotic patients can benefit
significantly from supplementation with dietary
Calcium Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite provides a
highly beneficial source of dietary calcium together with
other nutrients that assist in the maintenance of healthy
bone structure and function.
For example, boron affects
the composition, structure, and strength of bone. It
appears to be necessary for calcium and magnesium
absorption, their adequate renal reabsorption, and their
incorporation into the bone matrix. Boron is absorbed at
about 90% efficiency and is rapidly distributed among
Calcium Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite tablets may
be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who wish
to increase their intake of calcium and other nutritional
factors for the maintaining of healthy bone function.
