What is Calcium?

Calcium is a mineral that our body needs to MAINTAIN STRONG BONES and to carry out many important functions. Almost all calcium is stored in BONES & TEETH, where it supports their structure and hardness.
The body also needs calcium for MUSCLES TO MOVE and for NERVES to carry messages between the brain and every body part. In addition, calcium is used to help BLOOD VESSELS MOVE BLOOD THROUGHOUT THE BODY and to help release HORMONES and ENZYMES that affect almost every function in the human body.

  Calcium is especially important to prevent OSTEOPOROSIS.

What happens to bones during Osteoporosis?

By about 20, the average woman acquired 98% of her skeletal mass. This process of bone acquisition slows as you get older. Between age 35-40, you began to loose bone mass, remains reasonably stable until age 50 & then declines progressively, This loss if severe can lead to Osteoporosis.


What are the signs and symptoms of Osteoporosis?

– Bone pain in the Hip or Wrist.
– Low back pain.
– Loss of height and a stopped posture.
– Neck Pain.
– Fractures of the Hip, Spine, back or wrist, sometime without falling.

What are the risk factors?

The following risk factors may trigger Osteoporosis:

– Family history.
– Low calcium diet
– Lack of physical activity.
– Being underweight
– Consumption of alcohol
– Smoking
– Medicines such as Corticosteroids, Diuretics, Hypertension etc.
– Early Menopause
– Women whose ovaries are surgically removed.

How to prevent Osteoporosis?

Adequate calcium and vitamin D intake are necessary to develop and preserve healthy bones throughout our life. 
– Good sources of calcium-dairy products such as milk, cheese, yogurt, green leafy vegetables, nuts especially almonds and sea food like fish.
– Vitamin D may be obtained from eggs, liver, or by spending 15 minutes in the sun 2-3 times a week.
– 15-20 minutes walking daily helps stop further weakening of bones.
– Weight bearing exercise such as low-impact aerobics, stair climbing running and swimming helps keep your bones strong.
– Muscle-building exercise are not recommended for people with Osteoporosis
– Cut back on cigarette smoking or excessive alcohol intake.


Calcium is also VERY VERY important in PREGNANCY & BREASTFEEDING.

For breastfeeding mothers, calcium intake can not be overstated. In breastfeeding, calcisum will be absorbed from the calcium  available in the mother’s body. If this persists and the mother does not replace the calcium she uses, then she would run the risk of osteoporosis, feeling sore legs and spine, easily tired and weary, and wrinkles on the face.  
Pregnant women need 1000mg-1300mg a day of calcium. Ostematrix contains calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, 3 in 1. Each 1 tablet contains 250mg calcium OsteMatrix.  Calcium is very important for building cells, the growth of baby’s teeth and bone formation. Stimulation of nerve repair, prevent muscle cramps, especially for pregnant women and calcium is also important to stabilize the heart rate and high blood pressure. If pregnant mothers lack calcium it may also cause bone shrinkage and causing damage to the mother’s own teeth. 
Soooo, why is OSTEMATRIX so special ?
Ostematrix contains calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, 3 in 1. Each 1 tablet contains 250mg calcium OsteMatrix. Magnesium works to help incorporate calcium into bones and strengthens, vitamin D to stimulate calcium absorption. 
And we have clinical studies to prove the absorption and bioavailability of Ostematrix !
