A healthy skeleton is made up of bones that are strong and supple. Bone strength is a result of sufficient bone mass‚ which comes from a variety of nutrients. Calcium is the most vital mineral‚ because it is converted into new bone matter while helping retain existing amounts‚ structure‚ and hardness; this is especially important as you get older.
However‚ since calcium is also required for your muscles and nerves to function properly‚ some also needs to be present in the blood stream at all times. If you don't get enough from foods (like dairy products such as milk‚ cheese‚ or yogurt) or supplements‚ or if your digestive tract is unable to absorb sufficient amounts‚ the body will take it from your bones. This can contribute to bone loss‚ as well as weakened bones that are more likely to result in painful falls or breaks that may inconvenience you.
Despite its clear importance‚ calcium isn't the only nutrient your bones need. That's why +CAL+® with Ipriflavone by Pure Encapsulations provides a wide array of helpful compounds in one broad-spectrum formation. Along with highly bioavailable calcium‚ every capsule also provides magnesium and vitamin D--among others--to support calcium absorption. Vitamin K also promotes the formation of bone matter by helping osteocalcin bind to calcium.
Ipriflavone may be particularly helpful. This synthetic derivative of natural isoflavones is a unique addition to the mix‚ and helps maintain healthy activity of osteoclasts by spurring secretion of cacitonin‚ a hormone. Finally‚ horsetail extract is an herb that may work to form elastin‚ while also supporting the strength and synthesis of the bones' and cartilage's connective tissues.
Take two to seven vegetarian capsules daily. At the recommended dosage‚ each 210-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' +CAL+® with Ipriflavone should last from one to three-and-a-half months.
Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

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.
