The Organic Calcium Supplement From Natural Milk Source
Did you know that some off-the-shelf calcium supplements are made from calcium carbonates such as rocks, oyster shells and bones? Most of the other calcium supplements are made from sea shells, rocks, stones and bones. These are not natural foods and are not what nature intended for natural calcium absorption. Also they could be contaminated with heavy metals. Omical™ is a calcium mineral complex made from milk of ORGANIC source. Milk is a natural food that has been trusted for centuries to be safe. Omical™ is free of hormones, steroids and antibiotics. It has been tested in Singapore to be free of toxic metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic and copper. It contains no fat and is safe for consumption even by children and expectant mothers.
Calcium is critical!
The awareness of the importance of dietary calcium has increased because research has established that in addition to maintaining and obtaining healthy bones and teeth, calcium is important for the regulation of cell function, protect cells from free radical damage, nerve transmission, control muscle contraction and relaxation such as the heart and blood clotting.
In addition, calcium provides a protective role against osteoporosis, hypertension (high blood pressure), pregnancy-induced hypertension, hypercholesterolemia (high blood cholesterol), certain cancers (colon and mammary) and possible gallstones (Miller et al.,1994; Barger-Lux and Heaney, 1994; Moerman et al., 1994).
Calcium is important for both men and women!
Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue. This leads to bone fragility and an increased susceptibility to fractures of the hip, spine, and wrist. Inadequate calcium intake is a contributing factor in the development of osteoporosis.
Unfortunately, a calcium deficiency is usually undetectable until you experience loose teeth, receding gums, or a bone fracture. There is no known cure for osteoporosis, and it seems to be affecting people at younger ages more and more. Hence, it is important to ensure you have enough calcium to prevent the preventable!
The National Academy of Sciences and the National Osteoporosis Foundation (US) recommend daily calcium intake of 1,000 – 1,200mg/day for adult men and women.
Food – Best Source of Calcium!
Everyone agrees that food is the best source of calcium. However, most people do not have enough calcium in their diets. Even if they do, calcium is not easily absorbed as no more than 10-20% of what is found in foods is actually consumed and metabolized.
Meals high in fat decreases absorption of calcium. Calcium in certain vegetables can be inhibited from releasing by oxalates that are found naturally in foods such as kale, spinach, broccoli, grains and cereals. Vitamin D must be present in the body in order for absorption to occur. Lactose and vitamin C increase calcium absorption. Calcium requires an acid environment for absorption, which is a huge problem for older people or those on acid-reducing medicines who have less production of digestive acids.
Facts On Calcium Absorption
With poor diet and lack of exercise, calcium supplementation is a must for most people. However, studies have concluded that in order for your body to utilize bio-available calcium in the bloodstream and build strong bones, trace minerals like magnesium, potassium, zinc, copper and phosphate need to be present.
These trace minerals are essential to fully maintain optimal bone health. The effects of calcium supplementation with and without the said minerals showed that bone loss in postmenopausal women could be only partly arrested by calcium supplementation, but to fully maintain bone mass, trace minerals were required (Strause et al., 1994).
Omical™ – Total Bone Nutrition!
- Helps strengthen bones.
- Maintains healthy teeth.
- Complete mineral complex nearest to human bone.
- Helps reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis as part of a healthy diet and physical activity.
Omical™ -Nature’s Food With Balanced Minerals For Optimal Bone Health!
Omical™ is real calcium from nature’s food – Milk! Omical™‘s mineral ratio is amazingly close to the mineral composition of human bone. If you look at the percentage of the mineral constituent of bone and the percentage of the mineral constituent in Omical™, you will find them very similar. This means that you are receiving the same amount of the minerals your bone requires to achieve optimal bone health.
Omical™ is a milk mineral complex which, in addition to calcium, contains:
- Vitamin D
Our calcium comes from nature’s first source of calcium for humans – milk. Milk calcium is what we were designed to absorb and utilize. Most commercial calcium products on the market are derived from mining a rock called dolomite or calcium carbonate. Other “natural” calcium products may come from oysters, coral, or farm animal bones.
Omical™ is more than a calcium supplement. It is a natural occurring Milk Mineral Complex! Omical™ is from a natural organic source and is suitable even for children and expectant mothers. It does not have a problem with absorption, unlike other calcium sources that require an acid environment for absorption.
Hence, even older people or those on acid-reducing medicines who have less production of digestive acid can enjoy optimal absorption of calcium from Omical™. It does not carry any risks of being contaminated with naturally occurring heavy metals found in oyster bed environments.
Calcium is best absorbed by the body in small amounts. Therefore, a supplement with a low recommended dosage, taken several times a day, is ideal. Omical™, which contains 250mg of elemental calcium, respects the advice.
