Features and benefits
Nutrients in Fusion Calcium Advanced support:
- Strong, healthy bones and teeth
- Healthy bone mass and mineralisation
- Healthy bone development and growth in children and teenagers
- Healthy muscle contraction and immune system function
Fusion Calcium Advanced has been specially formulated with calcium glycinate and calcium citrate, which are more readily absorbed and used by the body than some other forms of calcium (such as calcium carbonate). Many people of all ages don’t get the recommended amounts of calcium from their diets, which may lead to osteoporosis in later life. In post-menopausal women whose dietary intake is inadequate, Calcium Advanced may help prevent osteoporosis.
Calcium Advanced also contains vitamin D3, which is required for calcium uptake and its absorption into the bones.
How it works
Are you getting enough calcium and vitamin D? Research has shown that many Australians have inadequate levels of these two important nutrients, which are required throughout life in order to maximise the formation, mineral density and strength of your bones.
A large body of scientific evidence has shown that taking calcium and vitamin D may help to reduce osteoporosis risk as you get older (for example by minimising bone loss at the hips and spine), and in older people, may also decrease the risk of fractures.
Fusion® Calcium Advanced is a high potency supplement containing calcium glycinate and calcium citrate. These organic sources of calcium are more readily absorbed and utilised by the body than inorganic sources of calcium (such as calcium carbonate), without causing digestive difficulties or interfering with your ability to absorb iron and other minerals.
For example, studies have shown that calcium is absorbed up to 24% more effectively from calcium citrate supplements than it is from calcium carbonate supplements.
This formula also includes vitamin D, which aids calcium absorption, helps reduce the rate at which calcium is lost from bone and has additional benefits for musculoskeletal health. For example, in older people, improving vitamin D status has been shown to reduce the risk of fractures and falls.
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, talk to your health professional. Vitamins and minerals can only be of assistance if dietary intake is inadequate.
