Ultimate Osteo fx
Contains a rich complex of nutrients to support healthy bones and joints which not only includes calcium, but also the necessary co-factors needed for optimal calcium absorption such as magnesium, zinc and glucosamine.
Calcium is one of the most important nutrients your body needs and is especially important to bone and joint health. However, in order for calcium to be efficiently absorbed by your body it needs other mineral co-factors. Ultimate Osteo fx contains a rich complex of nutrients to support healthy bones and joints which not only includes calcium, but also the necessary co-factors needed for optimal calcium absorption such as magnesium, zinc and glucosamine.
SUGGESTED USE: Adults, mix one fluid ounce of Ultimate Osteo fx per 100 pounds of body weight, one to two times daily. Children, one teaspoon of Ultimate Osteo fx daily per 20 pounds body weight. Not to exceed one fluid ounce.
WARNING: If you are pregnant, nursing or taking medications consult with your healthcare professional. As with any nutritional supplement program consult with your healthcare professional. Ultimate Osteo fx contains ingredients derived from shellfish. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

Here is one of the best papers on Calcium, as found in Ultimate Osteo Fx. It’s from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University.
- Calcium is a major constituent of bones and teeth and also plays an essential role as second messenger in cell-signaling pathways. Circulating calcium concentrations are tightly controlled by the parathyroid hormone (PTH) and vitamin D at the expense of the skeleton when dietary calcium intakes are inadequate. (More information)
- The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for calcium is 1,000 mg/day-1,200 mg/day for adults. (More information)
- The skeleton is a reserve of calcium drawn upon to maintain normal serum calcium in case of inadequate dietary calcium. Thus, calcium sufficiency is required to maximize the attainment of peak bone mass during growth and to limit the progressive demineralization of bones later in life, which leads to osteoporosis, bone fragility, and an increased risk of fractures. (More information)
- High concentrations of calcium and oxalate in the urine are major risk factors for the formation of calcium oxalate stones in the kidneys. Because dietary calcium intake has been inversely associated with stone occurrence, it is thought that adequate calcium consumption may reduce the absorption of dietary oxalate, thus reducing urinary oxalate and kidney stone formation. (More information)
- Data from observational studies and randomized controlled trials support calcium supplementation in reducing the risk of high blood pressure and preeclampsia in pregnant women. The World Health Organization advises that all pregnant women in areas of low calcium intake (i.e., low-income countries with intakes around 300 to 600 mg/day) be given supplemental calcium starting in the 20th week of pregnancy. (More information)
- Prospective cohort studies have reported an association between higher calcium intakes and lower risk of developing colorectal cancer; however, large clinical trials of calcium supplementation are needed. (More information)
- Current available data suggest that adequate calcium intakes may play a role in body weight regulation and have therapeutic benefits in the management of moderate-to-severe premenstrual symptoms. (More information)
- Adequate calcium intake is critical for maintaining a healthy skeleton. Calcium is found in a variety of foods, including dairy products, beans, and vegetables of the kale family. Yet, content and bioavailability vary among foods, and certain drugs are known to adversely affect calcium absorption. (More information)
- Hypercalcemia, a condition of abnormally high concentrations of calcium in blood, is usually due to malignancy or primary hyperparathyroidism. However, the use of large doses of supplemental calcium, together with absorbable alkali, increases the risk of hypercalcemia, especially in postmenopausal women. Often associated with gastrointestinal disturbances, hypercalcemia can be fatal if left untreated. (More information)
- High calcium intakes — either from dairy foods or from supplements — have been associated with increased risks of prostate cancer and cardiovascular events in some, but not all, observational and intervention studies. However, there is currently no evidence of such detrimental effects when people consume a total of 1,000 to 1,200 mg/day of calcium (diet and supplements combined), as recommended by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine.

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body. About 99% of the calcium in the body is found in bones and teeth, while the other 1% is found in the blood and soft tissue. Calcium concentrations in the blood and fluid surrounding the cells (extracellular fluid) must be maintained within a narrow concentration range for normal physiological functioning. The physiological functions of calcium are so vital to survival that the body will stimulate bone resorption (demineralization) to maintain normal blood calcium concentrations when calcium intake is inadequate. Thus, adequate intake of calcium is a critical factor in maintaining a healthy skeleton (1).
