BioCalth - Calcium L-Threonate Food Supplement Tablets
Biocalth® The fastest, most effective form of calcium supplementation:
• Has a 94% absorption rate, compared to the 45% of Calcium Carbonate
• Improves deposition of calcium in bones
• Helps to maintain healthy bones and teeth
• Helps normal muscle function and neurotransmission
Biocalth is a food supplement containing Calcium L-Threonate. Research shows that L-Threonate enables the body to absorb and deposit Calcium into the bones more effectively than any other form of Calcium.
Each tablet provides 775mg of Calcium L-Threonate, which equates to 100mg of Calcium per tablet. It is intended to be taken as an additional source of calcium, alongside a healthy, balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
What are the advantages of Calcium L-Threonate?
It is more bio-available to the tissues of the body than other forms of Calcium, such as Calcium Carbonate. It has a 94% absorption rate, compared to the 45% of Calcium Carbonate.
Calcium L-Threonate has a longer 'Elimination Half-Life' than other calcium salts. This means it stays in the blood plasma for longer and is absorbed mor efficiently. This in turn means less calcium will be excreted or resorbed from bone. To read the study click here.
