 Why Do We Need Calcium?
Calcium is probably the most widely talked about mineral for daily nutrition. Simply put, every part of our body demands calcium. It is essential in building strong bones and teeth, as well as muscles and organs. There are many types of calcium on the market today, and each one has its own unique properties. For a calcium supplement to be effective, it must be bioavailable, or in other words, it must be absorbed and utilized by the body at an accurate and predictable rate. Unfortunately, using the wrong type of calcium can leave your body short on desired results.

A Superior Source Of Calcium
Key factors to a healthy bone structure include a balanced diet, weight-bearing exercise, reduction and/or elimination of smoking and alcohol, and a quality source of calcium. Vinco’s OsteoSheath® and OsteoSheath® 4 not only contain three bioavailable forms of calcium (MCHC, Calcium Amino Acid Chelate, and Calcium Citrate), they also contain Chelated Magnesium, Vitamin D, and trace minerals Manganese, Copper, Zinc, Boron, Silicon, Molybdenum, and Vanadium. These ingredients make Vinco’s OsteoSheath® and OsteoSheath® 4 superior sources of calcium.

Osteoporosis is often called the “silent disease” because bone loss occurs without symptoms. Bones are active, living tissues. They are a matrix comprised of protein and collagen fibers to which various minerals become attached. On a daily basis, our bones are continually being dissolved and rebuilt. It is part of a normal process where old bone tissue is replaced with new.

As we age, our body’s ability to rebuild new bone is surpassed by the rate at which bones are being dissolved. The result is an unhealthy bone loss condition called osteoporosis. There are no sudden signs of osteoporosis. This process of losing bone will usually proceed undetected until pain, physical changes, fractures and/or complications appear. Due to this silent progression, osteoporosis can claim as much as 40% of peak bone mass before anything substantial is done to correct it.
