Calcium Malate

This product provides di-calcium malate, which is calcium bound to malic acid for excellent absorption in the body. Malic acid is a naturally occurring compound found in apples and other fruits and vegetables; it helps to support energy production by playing a role in the process of deriving adenosine triphosphate (ATP; the energy currency that runs the body) from food.

The di-calcium malate in the product is a patented form of calcium which is comprised of two moles of calcium attached to one mole of malic acid.  This form of calcium contains a high amount of elemental calcium, and with the presence of malic acid, it also supports the Krebs and glyoxylate energy producing cycles. Calcium Malate is highly bioavailable, and does not cause the formation of gas in the presence of stomach acid.

The recommended dosage of two capsules yields 500 mg of elemental calcium along with 100 IU of vitamin D.  

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.

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.

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.
