How It Works

AdvaCAL | How It Works

Calcium salts are formed in nature by binding pure (or elemental) calcium with other elements. Calcium carbonate (OsCal®, Tums®, AlgaeCaL® Grow Bone™) is calcium is bound to carbon. Calcium citrate (Citracal®) is calcium bound to citric acid. Hydroxyapatite (Bone-Bullder® and Bone Up®) is a calcium-phosphate combination. Milk contains calcium lactate, or calcium and lactic acid bound together. The calcium hydroxide & calcium oxide in AdvaCAL is calcium bound to oxygen.

To absorb calcium, the chemical bond between calcium and the other element must be broken. Stomach acid has the power to break this bond, and young stomachs, which secrete generous amounts of acid, do the job quite efficiently. But as we grow older our stomachs secrete less acid, and the process breaks down. The calcium bonds in AdvaCAL are easily broken, even with little stomach acid production. That means higher absorption and more calcium reaching your bones.*

AdvaCAL is an ionic calcium. It starts out as oyster shell, which is then smelted at 800° C. Smelting changes the chemical structure of oyster shell from calcium carbonate to calcium oxide and calcium hydroxide. The superheating process removes nearly all of the heavy metals, such as lead, found in oyster shell. The end result is a highly absorbable calcium that can supply all the daily needs of your heart and nervous system with a surplus left to build bone density.*

Clinical research shows that AAACa calcium has a second bone benefit: it modulates PTH (parathyroid hormone) secretions, which can needlessly deplete calcium from bone.*

As a final step, the calcium in AdvaCAL is potentiated with HAI™ (Heated Algal Ingredient). HAI is a amino acid complex from super-heated hijiki seaweed. Tiny amounts of HAI have been scientifically shown to further elevate calcium oxide & calcium hydroxide absorption.*

Calcium oxide/calcium hydroxide + HAI provides superior calcium absorption and PTH modulation. This combination has demonstrated consistent improvements in bone density in clinical research.*  These two ingredients are only available in AdvaCAL.

AdvaCAL is an excellent calcium supplement for women of all ages and men concerned about their bone health. Three tiny capsules twice daily builds stronger bones for life.*
