  • Research has shown that the vast majority of American adults do not get nearly enough calcium in their diets. Calcium deficiencies are usually even more common for those maintaining a vegetarian or vegan diet. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for calcium is between 1000 and 1200 mg for everyone over the age of eight. For this reason‚ many doctors may advise patients to start taking a calcium supplement. A quick comparison of the many calcium supplements available on the market will reveal obvious differences—it will also show that Designs For Health’s Calcium Malate Chelate is one of the best.

    Calcium offers many benefits. Most notably‚ your body uses it to help keep your teeth and bones healthy and strong. However‚ the mineral is also involved in nerve signaling‚ proper heart function and the contraction and relaxation of muscles. Treatment with a calcium supplement such as calcium citrate malate helps boost your calcium levels; it may also help prevent or treat health conditions like high blood pressure‚ osteoporosis‚ premenstrual syndrome (PMS)‚ rickets‚ high cholesterol‚ obesity and hypoparathyroidism (a condition characterized by abnormally low levels of the parathyroid hormone). Studies are ongoing and seek to explore further uses for calcium supplements.

    Calcium malate chelate is different from other supplements in that it’s a formulation in which calcium and malic acid are bonded to each other‚ which enhances absorption by your body. Malic acid is contained in its natural form by fruits and vegetables‚ including apples. Through the process of chelation‚ Calcium Malate Chelate Vegetarian Capsules by Designs for Health has been manufactured to have a larger absorption rate than calcium carbonate‚ calcium citrate‚ and calcium hydroxyapatite. Most impressively‚ calcium malate chelate has even been shown to be absorbed by the body than the calcium from milk!

    Designs for Health was founded in 1989 by a team of clinical nutritionists‚ and puts science first when creating products and formulas. Ever since then‚ the company has focused on manufacturing dietary supplements that contain quality‚ natural ingredients at effective dosages. It strives to provide the best products for health care professionals and patients.

    this product contains stearates

    Stearates are like teflon - they interfere with absorption.
