  • What Is It?
    +CAL+® with Ipriflavone is a comprehensive osteoporosis support formula designed to strengthen the skeletal system and resist the onset of osteoporosis.

    Uses For +CAL+® with Ipriflavone
    Osteoporosis Support: This broad spectrum combination of minerals‚ vitamins‚ and herbs is formulated to aid in the formation and strengthening of the skeletal system. It provides highly bioavailable forms of calcium‚ a mineral essential not only for the maintenance of the functional integrity of the nervous‚ muscular‚ and skeletal systems‚ but also cell membrane and capillary impermeability. This formula also provides substances which nutritionally support and enhance the absorption of calcium and the incorporation of calcium into bone.

    In addition‚ it provides nutrients essential to healthy bone structure and formation‚ the synthesis and strengthening of connective tissue in cartilage and bone‚ and the formation of elastin. Ipriflavone‚ an advanced addition to this formula‚ is a synthetic derivative of naturally occurring isoflavones. It supports healthy bone maintenance by promoting secretion of the hormone calcitonin‚ and maintaining healthy osteoclast activity. Ipriflavone also supports type I collagen and the formation of mineralized bone matrix. Vitamin K enhances bone formation by carboxylating osteocalcin. This enables osteocalcin to bind to calcium and promote healthy bone mineralization. Furthermore‚ +CAL+® is enhanced with 1‚000 i.u. of vitamin D3 for optimal bone health.

    What Is The Source?
    Calcium‚ magnesium‚ manganese‚ zinc‚ copper and boron are derived from earthen ore. Citrate/malate‚ glycinate and aspartate are synthetic. Horsetail extract (5:1) is derived from Equisetum arvense. Vitamin D3 is derived from lanolin. Ipriflavone and vitamin K1 are synthetically derived. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. Rarely‚ ipriflavone has been associated with epigastric pain‚ diarrhea‚ dizziness or lymphocytopenia. Individuals with heart or kidney problems or who experience water retention or swelling should avoid products containing horsetail extract. Consult your physician for more information.

Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Theoretically‚ ipriflavone could affect the way that the liver breaks down medications metabolized by the cytochrome P450 pathway‚ altering the effects of these medications and possibly the dose needed for treatment. Horsetail extract may be contra-indicated with diuretic medications. Consult your physician for more information.

Risk factors for osteoporosis include sex‚ race‚ age and inadequate calcium intake. Populations at highest risk for osteoporosis include Caucasian‚ Asian‚ postmenopausal women‚ and elderly women and men. Adequate calcium intake throughout life is linked to a reduced risk of osteoporosis‚ as calcium helps to optimize peak bone mass during adolescence and early adulthood in conjunction with exercise and healthy diet. Calcium intake greater than 2‚000 mg per day has no further known benefit to bone health.

    Ostepenia.....Beware

    I use CAL with Ipriflavone instead of using some of the drugs such as Fosomax and Boniva. It has come highly recommended by some homeopathic professionals and has all the D3 and magnesium one needs. And it is suppose to absorb easily. I have chohns disease and have had lots of prednisone so the bones have taken a beating. I was on Boniva for a few years but wanted to get off and CAL with Ipriflavone was the way off the drug.

    Pros

      That it is not a drug but a good calcium product with D and magnesium.

    Cons

      That you have to take 7 tablets a day.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Recommended by Naturopath

    Ive been taking Cal Plus for at least 10 years as recommended by my naturopathic physician. The physician checks all products recommended to make sure they are safe and effective. My scans show excellent bone density for my age so it must be doing something right. By the way the physician recommended taking it at night.

    Pros

      It seems to work.

    Cons

      Its expensive and the price keeps rising

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Glad I found you!

    I have been on this product for over a year at the suggestion of my naturopathic physician. He also happens to be an acupuncturist and a certified chinese herbalist and he has been treating me for many years. He is a true healer and only provides top of the line products. He even suggested going on line to get better pricing - so now I will be getting my products from you directly!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
