Ultra Cal Night Multiple System Support for Healthy Bones
Most people think the key to healthy bones is a large intake of calcium, but the picture is much more complicated than that. Ultra Cal Night influences multiple body systems involved with skeletal formation and maintenance, including bone synthesis, hormonal regulation, and calcium absorption and balance.
- Bone Synthesis: Mineral Building Blocks
Bone is living tissue and requires a continuous supply of nutrients for the rebuilding process. Most bone mineral mass is composed of calcium. However, other trace minerals are necessary for proper bone growth and the deposition of calcium in bone.
- Bone Synthesis: Organic Matrix
The organic matrix of bone is a specialized form of dense connective tissue, composed of collagen, non-collagen proteins and proteoglycans. Ultra-Cal Night includes nutrients to support connective tissue synthesis.
- Hormonal Regulation
Estrogen levels have a dramatic impact on bone mass. The soy isoflavones, genistein and daidzein, and the mineral, boron, support estrogenic activity.
- Calcium Absorption
Certain forms of calcium are more easily absorbed and are utilized more effectively in bone mineralization. Some nutrients enhance the absorption of calcium.
- Calcium Balance
An optimal balance between calcium absorption and calcium loss is essential for bone health. Lifestyle factors such as excess caffeine consumption and a highanimal protein diet lead to urinary excretion of calcium. Some nutrients help prevent calcium loss in the urine.
