Why you need Calcium?
You probably know that Calcium helps give you strong bones. That’s because Calcium combines with other minerals to give your bones their strength and structure.
But, your body also uses a small amount of calcium dissolved in your blood to make sure your heart, muscles, blood and nerves all function in a healthy way.
Bones act like a calcium bank - almost 99% of the body’s calcium is stored in them.
If you do not take in enough calcium from your diet to maintain adequate levels in the blood, the body reacts by ‘withdrawing’ calcium from your ‘bone bank’ and depositing it into the bloodstream instead.
This means that the calcium that makes your bones strong starts being taken away and used elsewhere in the body.
If your body keeps using the calcium from your bones because it isn’t getting enough from your diet, your bone density (bone strength) will gradually decline putting you at risk of developing osteoporosis.
How do I know how much calcium you need?
The amount of calcium you need depends on your age and gender. You need the most daily intake when you are a teenager. You also need a high daily intake if you are a woman older than 50, or if you are a man older than 70.
Our bones achieve their highest density by our early twenties and nearly 40% of this is acquired during puberty.
This is why it is so important for children and teenagers to have a diet that provides adequate calcium. Achieving a high bone mass during these younger years can help you maintain better bone health throughout the rest of your life. In adulthood, getting adequate amounts of calcium in your diet becomes vital to maintaining bone strength. As we age, our bodies absorb calcium less effectively, so calcium intake needs to be maintained at a higher level.
For women, rapid bone loss can occur during menopause as oestrogen levels drop.
Similarly, as ageing men experience lower testosterone levels, their bones can become more fragile as well.
HydroCal will help reduce the risk of osteoporosis in both men and women.
Why do you need Magnesium?
Many processes in the body rely on magnesium to complete them efficiently. From absorbing nutrients, to converting food into energy, regulating heart and blood pressure, and absorbing and using calcium, this essential mineral plays an important role in keeping our bodies in top shape.
A deficiency in magnesium can disrupt nerve and muscle impulses, which often causes irritability, nervousness, twitches, and muscle cramps. If these symptoms are keeping you up at night, it might be your body telling you that you need more magnesium in your diet.
Supplementing your diet with HydroCal can give your body the magnesium it needs to function efficiently, and helps to prevent insomnia, depression, dizziness, constipation, muscle weakness, and muscle cramps.
Why HydroCal is the supplement for you.
Your body will absorb magnesium when taken by itself. But, to efficiently absorb calcium, the body requires magnesium also. For optimum benefit, the mineral ratio should be 2:1.
Many calcium tablet and powder supplements do not have this essential ratio, and are produced in capsule and tablet forms that will pass through the digestive without being properly absorbed.
In order for your body to recognise these elements in supplements, they must be available in ionic form, or they will pass through your system with little effect.
Unlike HydroCal, this advantage is not seen in capsules, caplets or chewing forms of calcium such as antacids as they first need to be processed by the stomach to be converted into an ionic form before being useful nutrients.
The extra impact of trace minerals
We include trace minerals in our unique HydroCal formula for maximum health benefits.
Inulin is a natural soluble dietary fibre, which is derived from chicory root. It significantly increases the absorption of calcium and magnesium from food and supplements by making the digestive system more efficient.
It’s known as a prebiotic and stimulates the growth of friendly intestinal bacteria which supports good colon health while at the same time hindering the growth of harmful bacteria preventing some common digestive ailments.
Foods with Inulin, including HydroCal, are recommended for people with diabetes due to the zero glycemic index and <1 glycemic loading.
We also include trace amounts of copper, zinc and manganese, as they assist in metabolic processes involving collagen and bone, as well as immune system function.
Hydro-Cal can be taken after the evening meal, or as two ‘half’ doses; one morning and one evening. Simply add recommended dose, stir and enjoy the citrus effervescence.
