Vitamin Code RAW Calcium

Is your Calcium RAW, organic, whole food and plant-form calcium? It is if it’s Vitamin Code RAW Calcium. Using a patented form of marine algae known as algas calcareas.sp which is ecologically harvested off the pristine shores of remote South America, this is the only raw, organic, pure plant form of calcium that Garden of Life has ever found.

Why Choose This Form of Calcium?

There are many advantages to choosing this plant-form calcium over a rock-source calcium. It is widely known that plants from nature are the preferred source of nutrients for the body. Of equal importance is that the plant-form calcium used in Vitamin Code RAW Calcium, algas calcareas.sp, also provides 73 naturally occurring minerals and trace elements such as magnesium, silica, boron, vanadium and strontium that have all been linked to healthy bones.

Other Nutrients Found in Vitamin Code RAW Calcium

In addition to the raw, plant-formed calcium, Vitamin Code RAW Calcium contains a host of other raw vitamins and minerals as well as live probiotics and enzymes. Raw Vitamin D, an important bone-building vitamin, is included in the amount of 1,600 IU per serving. Vitamin D is vital to bone health and acts as a hormone to increase the absorption of calcium by up to 80%.

Also known as an important factor in bone health, vitamin K2 comes in two forms: MK-4 and MK-7. Vitamin Code RAW Calcium uses the MK-7 form which was shown in a pilot clinical study to last longer in the body than MK-4.

Vitamin Code RAW Calcium Ingredient Highlights:

  • RAW, Whole Food, Organic, Plant-Form Calcium
  • 1600IU RAW Vitamin D3
  • 100mcg Vitamin K2 as RAW MK-7 from natto
  • 386mg of RAW Magnesium
  • Completely free of limestone rock, chalk or animal bone-source Calcium

Bone Ultimatum

If you’re 50 or older, you could be in greater danger of suffering an unexpected fracture...but there are steps you can take to build bone density instead of steadily losing it.

In 2004, the U.S. Surgeon General rocked the medical community. America’s top doctor at the time, Richard H. Carmona, M.D., released the 2004 Bone Health Report, which warned that if we don’t change our lifestyle habits by 2020, half of American citizens older than 50 years of age would be at risk of fractures from osteoporosis. Notice that Dr. Carmona did not say that those over 50 would be at risk of developing osteoporosis, but of experiencing fractures from active osteoporosis. The report’s thesis statement—that widespread and serious bone health issues will likely happen at the relatively young age of 50—has worrisome implications… especially if 50 is the new 40.

How did this happen? Like most global health issues, several factors are combining to rob your body of healthy bones. While we tend to think of declining bone health as a consequence of old age, the stage is being set much earlier in life—even during the peak bone-building years of childhood and adolescence. The Surgeon General noted that “85% of adolescent girls and 65% of boys do not get enough bone-building nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D to support normal bone growth.”

Clearly the issue starts with the young. Optimum bone health, for young and old, is hindered by our diets and sedentary lifestyle. Where diet is concerned, consider this quandary: Our modern diet has become more reliant on meats and grains, while foods richer in calcium and other important minerals - such as dark, green leafy vegetables, have been sent to the sidelines.

Basically, we are eating less calcium-rich foods and more acid-forming foods. Meats and grains have an acidic effect on the body. In order to combat this, the body has to release minerals to balance pH levels. One of the minerals the body releases? Calcium, which is leeched from the bones and teeth.

It’s not helping matters that our lives have become more sedentary. Our TV addiction and the increased use of computers and hand-held devices negatively impacts physical activity, which is an extremely important factor in bone health. Being sedentary often equates to being indoors, away from the rays of the sun. Our bodies are designed to transform sunlight into vitamin D, another key element to bone health.

We tend to think of bone health as it relates to the elderly, but bone health - and more appropriately bone mineral loss, should be a concern at all ages of life.

We tend to think of bone health as it relates to the elderly, but bone health - and more appropriately bone mineral loss - should be a concern at all ages of life.So, if you are over 30, the age that is associated with end of the “bone growth” stage of life and the onset of normal age related bone mineral loss, then the Surgeon General’s report should be particularly alarming to you. Thankfully, Dr. Carmona and his team of medical experts laid out a three-part plan to address the alarming trends described in this report.

Dr. Carmona noted that increased health literacy was vital to overcoming the issue. The idea behind health literacy is rooted in the fact that the disturbing increase in fractures due to low bone mineral density—especially among younger persons—had gone largely unnoticed by the general public. The thinking is that by becoming more informed, the public will gain awareness—and take steps to combat—the issue of declining bone health. 

Unfortunately, the 2004 Bone Health Report was a one-day story when it was released—and promptly overshadowed by the 2004 U.S. presidential election and scintillating major-league baseball playoffs. (The Boston Red Sox were making headlines for coming back to defeat the arch-rival New York Yankees in the playoffs and winning the World Series for the first time since 1918.)

The second part of the plan was promoting increased exercise for bone health. Regardless of age, exercise and physical activity are an important part of building and maintaining strong, healthy bones. A good all-around program that incorporates weight-bearing strength-training exercises is most desirable. Weight-bearing and resistance exercises are useful for increasing or maintaining bone mass, while balance-training may help with coordination and maintaining muscle mass, which can help prevent falls and resulting bone fractures.

No health plan would be complete without dietary recommendations. The Bone Health Report specifically called for dietary changes to enhance health of our bones.

Not surprisingly, the list of foods considered important for bone health reads like a list of the healthiest foods on the planet - and seem to be the very foods that are missing from many people’s diet: green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, dairy products and fish. 

Of course, many people looking to boost their bone health choose to supplement their diets. It is in this area that one of the most common myths associated with bone health is found.

The Calcium Myth

If you want healthy bones, all you need is calcium, right? That is the sum total of many people’s knowledge of bone health nutrition. Thousands of manufacturers of calcium supplements would happily have you believe that first statement. That alone should make you wary. When thousands of companies profit from a single widely-held belief, it’s probably time to question that belief.

Here is the truth. No calcium supplement, taken in the absence of other vitamins and minerals and without proper diet and exercise, has ever been proven in clinical studies to help you strengthen bones. The best that can be said is that calcium supplementation helps slow down or stop bone loss.†† While slowing bone loss is a great goal, it’s a far cry from making them stronger and healthier by increasing bone mineral density.

As you will learn, there are several factors that go into actually building bone mineral density or growing bone. The source of your calcium is a key factor. Did you know that most calcium supplements are ground-up rocks or oyster shells? Of equal importance to the source of calcium are a host of other vitamins, minerals and trace elements that help calcium achieve its ultimate goal in the body. 

The Grow Bone System

There is good news on the horizon, however, for the millions of women and men looking to reverse normal bone loss that comes with aging. Garden of Life is proud to introduce their new Vitamin Code Grow Bone System with RAW Calcium and Growth Factor S.

Far from "just another calcium supplement" intended to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, the Grow Bone System is intended to stimulate bone growth, increase bone strength and bone mineral density, and has been clinically demonstrated to do so.

The Grow Bone System starts with Vitamin Code RAW Calcium. Most calcium supplements come from ground-up rock, usually limestone. The RAW Calcium in the Grow Bone system is a patented form of marine algae known as algas calcareas.sp, which is sustainably harvested by hand off the pristine shores of remote South America. The algas calcareas.sp forms organisms the size of a tennis ball. It is picked up in knee-deep ocean waters, rinsed in fresh water, dried in the sun, and then milled at low temperatures into a powder. This is the only raw, organic plant form of calcium that Garden of Life has ever found.

Using plant-form calcium has huge advantages over rocksource calcium. For starters, while rock is technically a natural substance, it’s not in human nature to eat rocks. Plants are, of course, a different subject. Sun-drenched and teeming with life, our bodies thrive on the nutrition that plants provide. The same will never be said of rocks. Second, and of particular importance for bone health, when you take a whole food plant-form calcium supplement, you’re getting far more than just calcium.

While calcium is an important bone-building mineral, there are other nutrients vitally important to bone health.  The consumption of minerals such as magnesium, silica, boron, vanadium and strontium have all been linked to healthy bones. And all of them are naturally occurring in the RAW Calcium algas calcareas.sp.

In addition to the raw, plant-formed calcium, Vitamin Code RAW Calcium also contains a host of other raw vitamins and minerals as well as live probiotics and enzymes. Raw Vitamin D3, an important bone-building vitamin, is included in the amount of 1,600IU per serving. Vitamin D is vital to bone health and acts as a hormone to increase the absorption of calcium by up to 80%.

Emerging research has also shown that vitamin K2 has important bone health implications by ensuring that calcium gets to the bones where it belongs and not in the arteries, where calcium doesn’t belong. One thing you may want to note where vitamin K2 is concerned is that there are two forms generally available in most supplements: MK-4 and MK-7. Vitamin Code RAW Calcium uses the MK-7 form, which was shown in a pilot clinical study to last longer in the body than MK-4.

The raw plant-formed calcium, algas calcareas.sp, contains 73 naturally occurring minerals and trace elements that work synergistically to support the body’s bone-building functions, but the RAW Calcium formula doesn’t stop there. In order to maximize the benefits of Vitamin Code RAW Calcium, Garden of Life has added powerful minerals such as raw magnesium and boron. Finally, live probiotics and enzymes are added to the product as well as raw organic fruits and vegetables, for what could be the most complete RAW whole food calcium supplement available today.

The second formula in the Grow Bone System is Vitamin Code Growth Factor S, which is a combination of strontium, a critical bone-building mineral, along with probiotics, enzymes and raw organic fruits and vegetables.

Chances are that you have never heard of strontium. Strontium is a common element that is found naturally in your bones in trace amounts of approximately 100 micrograms in every gram of bone. Clinical trials conducted on strontium found it most effective at 680mg per day - the same amount contained in Growth Factor S.

It is important to note that you shouldn’t take strontium and calcium at the same time of day since they compete for the same absorption sites in the body. Be sure to also eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, and chances are that by 2020, no matter what your age, you’ll be more likely to have strong, healthy bones.
