Osteoporosis, just one of the many joys of growing older, NOT! Osteoporosis International found that women taking AdvaCAL calcium supplements had the highest bone density increase among 32 different calcium studies that were conducted between 1977 and 2008. The 32 studies involved 3,169 postmenopausal women, 79 skeletal measures and 7 different types of calcium, including dairy.
Results from the 32 studies showed a wide range of bone density changes that were mostly negative. These negative results meant that women taking calcium still lost bone mass each year, however, the AdvaCAL calcium users actually saw their bone density increase by 1.5% per year. This was the highest increase among the 79 skeletal measures.
Wondering what AdvaCAL is all about? Well, AdvaCAL is a natural ionic calcium from Japan. Oyster shells are smelted at high temperatures, which removes lead and other impurities, as well as creates a bioavailable calcium ash.
The calcium is then belended with HAI, an amino acid complex from seaweed. HAI has been scientifically shown to boost calcium absorption. The calcium and HAI that are found in AdvaCAL have both been awarded patents.
