The ingredients in Vitamin Code RAW Calcium and Growth Factor Shave been clinically studied to increase bone mineral density, increase bone strength and stimulate bone density growth! There is good news on the horizon for the millions of women and men looking to reverse normal bone loss that comes with aging. Garden of Life is proud to introduce their new Vitamin Code Grow Bone System with RAW Calcium and Growth Factor S.
Far from “just another calcium supplement” intended to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, the Grow Bone System is intended to stimulate bone growth, increase bone strength and bone mineral density, and has been clinically demonstrated to do so.
The Grow Bone System starts with Vitamin Code RAW Calcium. Most calcium supplements come from ground-up rock, usually limestone. The RAW Calcium in the Grow Bone system is a patented form of marine algae known as algas calcareas.sp, which is sustainably harvested by hand off the pristine shores of remote South America. The algas calcareas.sp forms organisms the size of a tennis ball. It is picked up in knee-deep ocean waters, rinsed in fresh water, dried in the sun, and then milled at low temperatures into a powder. This is the only raw, organic plant form of calcium that Garden of Life has ever found.
Using plant-form calcium has huge advantages over rocksource calcium. For starters, while rock is technically a natural substance, it’s not in human nature to eat rocks. Plants are, of course, a different subject. Sun-drenched and teeming with life, our bodies thrive on the nutrition that plants provide. The same will never be said of rocks. Second, and of particular importance for bone health†, when you take a whole food plant-form calcium supplement, you’re getting far more than just calcium.
While calcium is an important bone-building mineral, there are other nutrients vitally important to bone health. The consumption of minerals such as magnesium, silica, boron, vanadium and strontium have all been linked to healthy bones. And all of them are naturally occurring in the RAW Calcium algas calcareas.sp.
In addition to the raw, plant-formed calcium, Vitamin Code RAW Calcium also contains a host of other raw vitamins and minerals as well as live probiotics and enzymes. Raw Vitamin D3, an important bone-building vitamin, is included in the amount of 1,600IU per serving. Vitamin D is vital to bone health and acts as a hormone to increase the absorption of calcium by up to 80%.
Emerging research has also shown that vitamin K2 has important bone health implications by ensuring that calcium gets to the bones where it belongs and not in the arteries, where calcium doesn’t belong. One thing you may want to note where vitamin K2 is concerned is that there are two forms generally available in most supplements: MK-4 and MK-7. Vitamin Code RAW Calcium uses the MK-7 form, which was shown in a pilot clinical study to last longer in the body than MK-4.
The raw plant-formed calcium, algas calcareas.sp, contains 73 naturally occurring minerals and trace elements that work synergistically to support the body’s bone-building functions, but the RAW Calcium formula doesn’t stop there. In order to maximize the benefits of Vitamin Code RAW Calcium, Garden of Life has added powerful minerals such as raw magnesium and boron. Finally, live probiotics and enzymes are added to the product as well as raw organic fruits and vegetables, for what could be the most complete RAW whole food calcium supplement available today.
The second formula in the Grow Bone System is Vitamin Code Growth Factor S, which is a combination of strontium, a critical bone-building mineral, along with probiotics, enzymes and raw organic fruits and vegetables.
Chances are that you have never heard of strontium. Strontium is a common element that is found naturally in your bones in trace amounts of approximately 100 micrograms in every gram of bone. Clinical trials conducted on strontium found it most effective at 680mg per day—the same amount contained in Growth Factor S.
It is important to note that you shouldn’t take strontium and calcium at the same time of day since they compete for the same absorption sites in the body. Be sure to also eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, and chances are that by 2020, no matter what your age, you’ll be more likely to have strong, healthy bones.
