A recent report in the medical journal Osteoporosis International found that women taking AdvaCAL® calcium had the highest bone density increase among 32 different calcium clinical studies conducted between 1977 and 2008. The 32 studies involved 3,169 postmenopausal women, 79 skeletal measures and 7 different types of calcium, including dairy calcium.
(PRWEB) January 29, 2010 -- The report entitled “The Effect of Calcium Supplementation on Bone Loss in 32 Controlled Trials in Postmenopausal Women” was authored by calcium researcher B.E.C.Nordin, M.D. of Australia. Nordin concluded that calcium intake generally prevented bone loss in postmenopausal women for at least four years. Results from the 32 studies showed a wide range of bone change from taking different calciums. Most calciums only slowed down bone loss. However, one study, in which participants took AdvaCAL calcium, showed a 1.5% bone density increase per year, the highest increase among all 79 skeletal measures.
Results from this study dovetail with other published comparative calcium research. A 2007 meta-analysis in the journal The Lancet found that women taking AdvaCAL had the most favorable fracture-risk change among 17 different calcium studies between 1992 and 2006. The 17 fracture studies involved men and women aged 50+, taking 6 different calciums either alone or with vitamin D over multiple years.

AdvaCAL is a natural ionic calcium. It begins as oyster shell, which is then smelted at 800° C. Smelting changes the chemical structure of the calcium to calcium oxide and calcium hydroxide. The super heating process also removes heavy metals, such as lead, naturaly found with calcium. Finally, the calcium is blended with HAI™ (Heated Algal Ingredient). HAI is a patented amino acid complex from hijiki seaweed. Tiny amounts of HAI have been scientifically shown to increase calcium absorption In one study, absorption was up to 4 times greater.
“We are pleased but not surprised by AdvaCAL’s top ranking in these studies,” comments Andrew Lane, president of LaneLabs, Waldwick, NJ. LaneLabs sells AdvaCAL, mainly in natural food stores. “AdvaCAL has shown consistently impressive results in 20 published scientific studies. Leading researchers are finally starting to learn our little secret .”
