Q & A ABOUT AMORPHOUS CALCIUM CARBONATE

Q & A ABOUT AMORPHOUS CALCIUM CARBONATE

WHAT IS AMORPHOUS CALCIUM AND HOW DOES IT DIFFERENT FROM REGULAR CALCIUM?

Amorphous Calcium Carbonate (ACC) appears in the form of sub-micron particles, which results in a much higher absorption rate. It is called ‘amorphic’ due to the geometrical abstract form of the particles, in contrast to the crystalline form and small surface area of other minerals. The molecular form and size induce improved absorption and evident results.

 

WHO SHOULD CONSUME CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS?

While recommended calcium daily dosage is 1000-1200 mg, it is a known fact that most of the population consumes no more then 500 mg a day. High-risk groups are individuals over the age of 50, menopausal women, smokers, patients consuming steroids for more than 3 months, and those who do not consume calcium in their regular diet or have absorption malfunctions.

 

WHAT DOES DENSITY COMPRISE?

Each caplet comprises 1 gr (1000 mg), of which 200 mg are amorphous calcium. Other ingredients are: calcium carbonate, cellulose, microcrystalline, povidone, stearic acid, sodium chloride, silica, and magnesium stearate.

 

CAN DENSITY REPLACE OSTEOPOROSIS DRUGS? 

DENSITY is a supplement and not a drug, hence it has no medical identification for osteoporosis. Yet, the use of drug treatments with calcium and vitamin D proved to have a positive outcomes. Pre-clinical research based on DENSITY and alendronate has shown excellent results in improving bone density.

 

ARE THERE ANY KNOWN SIDE-EFFECTS?

Amorphous calcium has been clinically tested prior to its release on the market and was found safe for use with no toxication concerns. Calcium consumption may evoke some unpleasant side-effects, mainly in the digestive system. From practical experience it has been proven that DENSITY is accompanied by fewer side-effects than traditional crystline calcium supplements.
