Do  you know your bones reach peak density (bone building) by the

time you are age 30? 

The good news is that bone remodeling and repair continue for your entire

life.  That’s why it is important to supply your body with the nutrients it needs to help your bones stay healthy and strong.

And you will love Fibro-Care Cal™. It’s  your  "Bone Building Kit in a Bottle”,  with highly  absorbable minerals and  supporting co- nutrients in one amazing formula. Balanced with magnesium, it is also a safe way to supplement your calcium needs. 

As mentioned, bones remodel throughout life. They do this with special bone cells that break down (resorb) bone and recycle the minerals bones contain . Other bone cells are in charge of making new bone matrix (repair/rebuilding). A network of enzymes and hormones control the remodeling.  About 10% of adult bones are remodeled each year. 


Bone  remodeling is an important process as it  repairs daily bone trauma and thickens bones at points of stress from muscles. Remodeling also helps regulate mineral balance by releasing  or absorbing minerals in the blood. 


For example, having a healthy heart rhythm requires calcium and magnesium working in tandem to contract and relax the heart muscle. If blood levels are low for either mineral, your body maintains life by “borrowing” the stored minerals from your bones. (About 60% of magnesium and 99% of calcium is stored in bones). 


If you don’t continually replenish calcium and magnesium on a daily basis, these minerals will not be there for bones or the many other functions these minerals provide for the rest of your body’s health. 


Diet alone may not be enough to maintain balance. Many foods are fortified with calcium and calcium is easily available  in dairy foods. However, few foods  are abundant in magnesium and cannot supply the 400-450 mg daily value needed. Magnesium is also involved  and responsible for more than 600 chemical reactions in the body so you don’t want to be low in this critical mineral.


What’ is your first step in maintaining optimal nutrient levels of both minerals for bones (and bone storage)? Take a supplement, one that is a balanced formula  Supplementing with calcium alone is not the best answer for several reasons. 


Your body needs a network of nutrients for the bone building equation. D3 to absorb calcium, as well as Vitamin K, Boron  manganese and definitely magnesium. Select B vitamins and C support the nutrient synergy.  One caution. Without its nutrient cofactors, calcium may not be absorbed and/or stored in bones properly  Any excess calcium could get deposited in blood vessels and tissues, making them “stiff” and unhealthy. Notably, calcified plaques in the arteries could put you at risk for a heart attack and stroke. 

In fact, more than a decade ago doctors stopped advising women to take 1200-1500 mg calcium a day* when the numbers for heart attack and stroke rose for post-menopausal women on that dose. 

Health professionals  took the drastic step of telling patients to avoid supplements altogether and only get their calcium from food sources. They missed the obvious reason for the increased  risk: the cofactors for absorbing calcium were missing in action. You don’t need to make that mistake!

*A note about the recommended calcium dose. A few brief studies in the 1970s suggested that 1200 mg of calcium a day might lower the risk of osteoporosis for post-menopausal women by preserving calcium stores. Thus in 1996, the Institute of Medicine  changed its daily 800 mg recommendation to 1200  for women aged 50  and older. Criticism for the brevity of those studies (weeks) called for longer periods of time for proof. The Institute, which sets the values for the U.S. has been reviewing recommended intakes but to date, the calcium is unchanged from 1997. Of note, the World Health Organization cites 400 to 500  mg of calcium a day are needed to prevent osteoporosis.
