When it comes to calcium supplements, you cannot go wrong asking for quality. There are so many thousands of brands of calcium products out there on the market that one would think it would be easy to choose a good one. We often assume we are getting a quality product–unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Varying degrees of quality can result in products which do not live up to the high standards of FDA regulations. These standards were established for the field of Nutritional Supplement Manufacturing several years ago.
Therefore, it is important to know where your vitamins and minerals are coming from. You want to know what qualities and characteristics your products have. It also helps to know a tiny bit of science and chemistry so you know which forms of vitamins and minerals are best absorbed by the body.
Not All Vitamins & Minerals Are The Same
Did you know that not all calcium is the same? Research shows that calcium is better absorbed by the body when bonded with proteins and amino acids (the building blocks of protein).
Pure calcium is often dumped by the body because it cannot be assimilated. Therefore, when buying mineral products, one is better off buying supplements which contain calcium gluconate instead of the cheaper alternative, calcium carbonate, which is generally used in antacid formulations. Calcium gluconate will be more efficiently absorbed and used by the body for the functions most people want it for–processes such as bone building and keeping teeth strong.*
How Our Calcium Supplements Are Different
At Standard Vitamins Distribution Co., we ensure that all of our products pass rigorous testing and we even go as far as ensuring that our suppliers are themselves using quality ingredients. We screen our ingredients and verify them to ensure they come from reliable sources. They must be usable so that the body can actually digest it.
Our line of calcium products sold as part of our wholesale catalog contain calcium gluconate–which is a chelated mineral ( this process is known as chelation, wherein an amino acid is bonded with the calcium to ensure the body is able to assimilate it more easily).
CalMag has been on the market for over 20 years and is a fast-absorbing calcium supplement which comes in powder form, and can be prepared in a few minutes. We also offer calcium & magnesium capsules for fast absorption.
