Calcium is found in Food with accompanying Food factors including protein chaperones which aid in absorption of calcium (calcium mineral salts are chemical compounds which are industrially processed rocks). When serum calcium levels drop, calcium leaves the bone, therefore higher absorption of calcium is better for bone health. Clinical reports consistently confirm that dietary/food calciums are important in the management of blood pressure. This does not appear to be the case with isolated calcium salts (the results appear inconsistent). One study found that calcium in Food raised serum ionic calcium levels from 1.08 to 1.15 mmoles, but that serum ionic calcium levels were not raised with calcium carbonate. Serum calcium levels affect blood pressure. Since low bone mass is somewhat inversely correlated with high levels of diastolic blood pressure, this suggests that calcium from Food may be superior when hypertension issues are present. Calcium is important for optimal health as calcium deficiencies can contribute to osteoporosis, muscle (especially the legs) cramps, insomnia, mood/behavioral/nerve problems, hypertension, kidney stones, and colon cancer.
Food researchers have concluded that 100% Food Calcium Complex is “the most suitable form of calcium for long-term supplementation”. It does not cause stomach upset as nightly alkaline calcium rock forms do. 100%Food Calcium Complex is the doctor’s choice for calcium supplementation.

Other ingredients: Vegetable Lubricant, Silica, Food Glaze, Lecithin, Guar Gum.
Contains naturally occurring carbohydrates, lipids, proteins (including all ten essential amino acids), superoxide dismutase, and truly organic bioflavonoids as found in enzymatically processed Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Rice bran Oryza sativa, Mixed vegetable fiber Cellula vegetabalis, Kelp thallus Ascophyllum nodesum, Dulse plant Rhodymenia palmatta, and Buckwheat rutin Fagopyrum esculentum --all the nutrients shown above are contained in these foods. Unlike many so-called “natural” calcium formulas, Calcium Complex is a true food calcium (not a mineral salt) contains no synthetic USP nutrients or mineral salts, but only contains foods, food complexes, and food concentrates.
Numerous university studies have concluded that supplements containing food nutrients are better than USP isolates. Food nutrients are better because they contain important enzymes, peptides, and phytonutrients CRITICAL to the UTILIZATION of vitamins and minerals which are not present in isolated USP nutrients. Published research has concluded that food vitamins are superior synthetic/USP vitamins.
Suggested use: 1-9 tablets per day or as recommended by your health care professional. Adjust usage according to nutritional lifestyle requirements.
