These Cal Apatite Forte Capsules by Metagenics are an excellent bone support
formula that provides extra MCHC (as much as 3,036 mg per serving). This
comprehensive formulation also supplies beneficial levels of vitamin D along
with other nutrients that are essential for maintaining good bone health.
Cal Apatite provides a blend of bone-nourishing nutrients that were
specifically designed to be highly absorbable. It is available in a convenient
flexible dose format, ideal for delivering optimal levels of pure and certified
MCHS, vitamin D and calcium.
Cal Apatite Forte by Metagenics is perfect for those who need extra calcium,
but prefer swallowing capsules over tablets.
Vitamin D (as cholecalciferol)
Vitamin D is mainly responsible for maintaining normal blood levels of
phosphorous and calcium – two minerals that are essential to maintain bone
health. Vitamin D works by helping the body absorb calcium in order to help form
and maintain healthy bones. It can be used alone, or in combination with calcium
(as in this supplement) to increase bone mineral density and reduce the risk of
bone fractures. Recent research suggests that vitamin D may also protect the
body from hypertension, cancer and autoimmune diseases in addition to its role
in preventing osteoporosis.
Calcium (as MCHC)
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, so it is essential to
maintain adequate levels. It is impossible for the blood to become deficient in
calcium because that would result in a dire health emergency. The body avoids
such a catastrophe by stealing calcium from the bones to maintain adequate
levels in the blood, muscles and intercellular fluids. This is the main reason
that a calcium deficiency is most often related to weakening of the bones.
It is found in some foods naturally and it’s also added to other fortified
foods (such as cereals and milks), and it is also available as a dietary
supplement on its own or in combination with other bone strengthening vitamins
and minerals – as is the case with Cal Apetite Forte.
Calcium plays an integral role in muscle function, interacellular signaling
and hormone secretion, and vascular contraction and vasodilation. Even though
less than 1 percent of the recommended daily value is required for these
functions, that small amount of calcium is crucial to their function.
Phosphorus (as MCHC)
Phosphorus is among the most abundant minerals in the body; second only to
calcium. Both nutrients work together to help the body build strong teeth and
bones. Nearly 85 percent of phosphorus is found n the teeth and bones, but you
can also find phosphorus in tissues and cells throughout the body. This
essential mineral helps the body filter out waste within the kidneys, and it
also plays a vital role in the body’s energy storage and use. Supplementing with
phosphorus can also help reduce muscle pain and feelings of fatigue after a
tough workout. It is essential for so many bodily functions, including producing
genetic building blocks (DNA and RNA), and growing, maintaining and repairing
all tissues and cells.

By Barbara from California on May 28, 2011
I have been using this Cal Apatite Forte Caps for about a year now and am very pleased with the product. I feel that I am getting the appropriate amount of calcium and added vitamin D to maintain my bone health. This was recommended to me by my nutritionist.
The capsules are not so large as to be a problem in swallowing.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Cal Apatite Forte
By Fran from Fairfield,CT on May 19, 2011
My nutritionist recommended this product to me three years ago for osteopenia. So far I have remained stable with no increase in bone loss. I also take additional magnesium. I like it because the calcium seems to be in a more usable form and therefore less is needed.
