Calcium Lactate Description

Suggested use: 4-12 T/day

Calcium Lactate is highly soluble form of calcium from a nondairy vegetable source and contains the proper balance of calcium and magnesium (5:1 ratio). It is blended with magnesium citrate, thus providing balancing magnesium and making the product slightly acid for better absorption and assimilation. This is not a dairy product as it contains no whey or lactoand and is safe for people allergic to milk products. Calcium Lactate is a very important supplement. More calcium is sold in the U.S. than any other nutrient. Unfortunately, most calcium supplements are poor or useless because they cannot be utilized by the body.

How Calcium Lactate keeps you helthy:

* Calcium Lactate supports absorption of calcium and magnesium.

  • Supports muscle contraction and nerve conduction
  • Supports maintenance and function of cell membranes and membrane permeability
  • Supports blood coagulation
  • Supports proper functioning of enzyme systems
  • Supports and helps maintain healthy bone density and remodelin
  • Provides additional support for immune system
  • Adequate calcium as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life.

Why Calcium Lactate is differet:

Your body uses a form of calcium called calcium bicarbonate. It is known as the ionizable form of calcium. Unfortunately calcium bicarbonate cannot be made into tablets, it doesn’t exist in nature. So we need to take an alternative form of calcium that is chemically changed bicarbonate inside the body. Calcium Lactate is form changing to calcium bicarbonate in one biochemical step. Other calcium sources require to a dozen steps to finally become the calcium your body can utilize.

Don’t confuse calcium bicarbonate with calcium carbonate. Calcium bicarbonate is the form of calcium that you find in spring water. If you take that spring water and heat it in a tea kettle, the soft organic calcium bicarbonate changes to the hard inorganic calcium carbonate, which is insoluble. But calcium bicarbonate is ionized in the bloodstream. The ionization of minerals makes them functional in the tissues. If calcium is not ionizes, for example, it stays in the fluid. Calcium lactate is closest form to calcium bicarbonate, and it takes just one step in the body to convert it to calcium bicarbonate which is very bioavailable and ionized in the body.

By the way, lots of people cannot make calcium bicarbonate easily, even if they use a Calcium Lactate supplement. There are many reasons for this but the main ones include a digestive system that is too alkaline and a diet that lacks trace minerals. Metabolizing calcium so it can be used in your muscles requires good stomach digestion. If you constantly pop antacids, you are robbing yourself of calcium. And taking TUMS won't help—the alkaline nature of this product will inhibit your body from metabolizing its calcium content. If you are in this predicament, you should do everything in your power to get off these acid stoppers. In addition to the right kind of calcium and a properly functioning digestive tract with plenty of stomach acid, your body requires trace minerals to metabolize calcium into its usable form.

In fact, your body requires trace minerals to metabolize just about everything—including vitamins. That's correct—all the vitamins you may take from the store cannot ever be used without adequate supplies of trace minerals and enzymes. That is one reason why the supplements from whole food are so superior—they are made from food and naturally contain trace minerals and enzymes, which all synthetic vitamins lack.

Also, to determine calcium deficiency you can often use the pH of your saliva as an indicator as well. Most people with a calcium deficiency have acid saliva anywhere from 4 to 6.5. This also correlates with physical ailments and/or disease. If a calcium deficiency is causing acid saliva, adding supplemental Calcium Lactate will serve to keep your saliva pH at about 7, while other body excretions (like urine) would stay acidic (below 7). Suck on a strip and then read your salivary pH (the container has a small chart and you simply match the color). If your pH remains acidic, you are probably calcium deficient and would do well to supplement with Calcium Lactate. For most people in this situation, as the pH becomes neutral, the aches, pains, and health problems also begin to disappear. Aches, pains, canker sores, acid saliva, and more are all red lights or signals of impending health problems caused by calcium deficiencies.

Don't cover up the red light the way the modem world of medicine does with drugs that treat symptoms – that’s like disconnecting the wire to the light in your car. Rather, find out what the cause of the problem is and correct it. See about calcium supplementation in the Osteoporosis and Fibromyalgia.

Also, for most athletes and people who suffer from chronic cramps, a combination of Cataplex F, Cataplex D and Calcium Lactate from Standard Process is the treatment of choice. For most people including professional athletes, this combination is a miracle.
