Calcium Malate Chelate

This new improved form of Calcium is an Albion? chelate, known to be the best for its superior absorption and efficacy over all types of calcium. Albion's patented calcium amino acid chelate are absorbed better than calcium salts (i.e. ca carbonate), and they are retained better in bone. Calcium carbonate from Tums? is capable of causing the milk-alkali syndrome which leads to stomach upset and kidney problems. Also, ionic minerals in other products interfere with the absorption of other minerals including phosphorus and iron whereas this chelated calcium does not. Albion calcium has demonstrated long and short term safety.

A study performed by Professor Robert P. Heaney, MD from Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska, that compared absorption rates of many common forms of calcium showed Albion's calcium, completely and properly chelated to glycine, to have far greater absorption than calcium citrate, calcium hydroxyapetite, calcium carbonate and even greater absorption than calcium from milk. (Heaney, R.P. et al Calcit Tissue Int (1990) 46: 300-304.)

This Calcium tablet is a combination of the two best and most absorbable forms of calcium available. Some of the calcium is bound to glycine and the rest to malic acid. Malic acid is found naturally in apples and other fruits and vegetables. Glycine is a very low molecular weight amino acid which makes it ideal for aiding the absorption of minerals.

Vitamin D has been added to this superb calcium formula because of the tremendous amount of positive research surfacing on the health benefits of Vitamin D. Vitamin D plays a major role in calcium absorption and bone health. The relationship between calcium absorption and vitamin D is similar to that of a locked door and a key. Vitamin D is the key that unlocks the door and allows calcium to leave the intestine and enter the bloodstream. Vitamin D also works in the kidneys to help resorb calcium that otherwise would be excreted. Regular exercise and a healthy diet with enough calcium helps teens and young adult Caucasian and Asian women to maintain good bone health and may reduce their high risk of osteoporosis later in life.

Calcium is a critical mineral useful for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis, high cholesterol, heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke, insomnia, decaying teeth, low birth weight babies, spontaneous labor, colon cancer, and pancreatic cancer.

Calcium May Help Prevent:
Decaying Teeth
Osteoporosis/Bone Loss
Heart Disease
High Blood Pressure
Low Birth Weight
Spontaneous Labor
Heart Attack/Stroke
Colon Cancer
Nervous System Disorders
Colon and Pancreatic Cancer

    What nutrients help Calcium work more effectively?
    Vitamin D is imperative for calcium absorption into the bones. Thus, it was added to this Albion Calcium Malate Chelate. Also, getting some sunshine each day can help increase your vitamin D levels naturally. Other important nutrients include magnesium, Omega 3s (EPA), GLA, manganese, copper, zinc, boron, vitamin K, vitamin C, and a diet containing green vegetable and protein all increase the effectiveness of calcium.

    High Cholesterol
    Calcium supplementation may contribute to heart health by helping to lower cholesterol and triglycerides. One study indicates, a higher amount of calcium in the blood corresponds to a higher amount of HDL cholesterol.1

    Pregnancy Complications
    It is shown that women have fewer pregnancy complications when they take 1,200mg of calcium daily.

    Cancer
    Calcium supplementation may guard against cancers of the colon, pancreas, and endometrium. A study of 1,900 men found that 1,200 mg per day lowered the incidence of colon cancer by 75 percent.

    Insomnia
    Calcium is prescribed for it?s sleep-inducing effects. Taken at bedtime, it will promote a better night?s sleep.

    Research Review

    Designs for Health's new improved calcium tablet is a combination of the two most health promoting, most absorbable forms of calcium available. Some of the calcium is bound to glycine and the rest to malic acid. Malic acid is found naturally in apples and other fruits and vegetables. Glycine is a very low molecular weight amino acid which makes it ideal for aiding the absorption of minerals. The amino acid glycine is naturally found in foods and can be synthesized by the body. Calcium can be perfectly chelated to two moles of glycine. A study performed by Professor Robert P. Heaney, MD from Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska, that compared absorption rates of many common forms of calcium showed Albion's calcium, completely and properly chelated to glycine, to have far greater absorption than calcium citrate, calcium hydroxyapetite, calcium carbonate and even greater absorption than calcium from milk. (Heaney, R.P. et al Calcit Tissue Int (1990) 46: 300-304.)

    Chelating chemically involves the process of binding a calcium ion by covalent and coordinate covalent bonds to either one, or two amino acids. The structure looks like putting two crab claws together hence the name chelate from the Greek word "chele" or claw. The end result of the chelating process is a dipeptide-like calcium protein molecule which (1) survives the acidity of the stomach and is non-ionizing like a calcium salt, (2) has a small enough molecular weight to be absorbed through the intestines intact, and (3) has a neutral charge, so it?s absorption is not hindered at the entrance of the intestinal cell. Many manufacturers attempt to chelate minerals by simply mixing the amino acids with the minerals in a dry powdered form. This will not allow these covalent bonds to occur and will not result in a chelate according to the NNFA definition of a chelate. Only Albion produces mineral chelates that meet the NNFA definition. NNFA is The National Nutritional Foods Association is an important regulatory organization for the dietary supplement industry. They defined a true chelate in order to attempt to stop manufacturers from calling minerals chelates that are not truly chelates. Their efforts have been unsuccessful thus far. Always look for the Albion logo or Patent numbers on your supplement bottles to be sure you are getting valid chelated minerals. Many Albion minerals have received GRAS status and may be used in foods. All the research out there performed on chelated minerals, use Albion minerals for the study. Their chelating process is so advanced, effective and unique that it is patented. The holder of the patent has written a Textbook on Mineral Absorption.

    Albion also successfully bonds minerals to ligands that are healthy for the body such as glycine and malic acid as compared to questionable piccolinic acid. Let?s compare absorption rates of different types of calciums based on what research shows. Research is in the works on Di-Calcium Malate. It?s absorption is believed to be approximately 30%. Absorption of calcium bis-glycinate is 44% without food (possibly closer to 50% if taken with food). Calcium Citrate has an absorption of between 20-24%. Calcium hydroxyapetite shows absorption of about 14% while calcium carbonate shows absorption as low as 10%. Realize that patients taking 1000 mg of calcium carbonate are actually getting as little as 100 mg of calcium daily from it.

    Designs for Health chose to combine two forms of Albion calcium to yield a high quality, well tolerated, well absorbed, efficacious dose of calcium. We combine the Di-Calcium Malate with Calcium Glycinate, known as Calcium bis-glycinate since it is bonded to glycine on both sides. Then, knowing the great benefits of Vitamin D and how it aids calcium metabolism, Designs for Health added 100 IU of Vitamin D to this superb Calcium Formula. Our Calcium Malate Chelate yields a total of 250 mg of elemental calcium per tablet. The recommended dose is two tablets per day, 500 mg of total elemental calcium.

    The Ca Malate seems to be working great in that my body doesn't produce bone spurs on my knuckles when I take it. Hopefully this means that it's using the calcium to make bone.
