Lifestream Natural Calcium: Reducing the risk, naturally.

Calcium supplements are effective in reducing fracture risk(i).

But are all supplements created equally?

Lifestream Natural Calcium is a naturally grown calcium sourceproduced from a calcified sea vegetable known as Lithothamnium Calcareum.

Osteoporosis Australia states that every 8 minutes, someone is admitted into an Australian hospital with an osteoporotic fracture(ii).

Calcium is one of the most vital and important minerals in our body. It is important for the normal function of our heart, muscles, blood and nerves and is relied on by the body for the development and maintenance of bone structure.

If we do not have enough calcium in our diet, our body takes the necessary calcium straight from our bones to cover all the other functions. This can result in low bone density and weakness, especially in later life.

Food researchers have concluded that food complexed calcium is "the most suitable form of calcium for long term supplementation" (iii) . Calcium in wholefood is superior to non-food calcium, therefore calcium naturally occurring in plants is the best choice for calcium supplementation.

But most calcium supplements are predominantly sourced and processed from non-organic material:
CALCIUM FORM SOURCE

Calcium Carbonate The rock known as limestone or a precipitated chalk(iii).

Calcium Citrate Limestone / chalk processed with lactic and citric acids.

Calcium Gluconate Limestone / chalk processed with gluconic acid.

Calcium Hydroxyapatite Degreased & processed cow bone.

Calcium Lactate Limestone / chalk processed with lactic acid.

Lifestream Natural Calcium is the only certified organic food complex calcium supplement available in Australia.

Lifestream Natural Calcium is produced from a sea vegetable found off the Irish coast - in some of the worlds cleanest, purest waters. The sea vegetable rapidly absorbs minerals and nutrients from the seawater and grows into a hard and brittle coral-like structure with high natural mineral and calcium content.

The sea vegetable is ecologically harvested, washed, dried, finely milled and processed under strict quality guidelines. It is not contaminated by lead, heavy metals or residues from agricultural chemicals or pesticides. Lifestream Natural Calcium is tested to pharmaceutical standards for quality and purity before use.

Lifestream Natural Calcium is an off-white, non-hydroscopic, odourless powder with a unique organic porous structure and natural composition, which makes it able to be absorbed and utilised by the body.

How is Lifestream different to other calcium supplements?

Lifestream Natural Calcium is a pure, totally vegetarian (suitable for vegans), certified organic, dairy free, gluten free, GM free and animal by-product free calcium source.

Lifestream Natural Calcium can assist in relief from muscular or menstrual cramps, arthritis, osteoporosis and bone pain. It may also support fracture healing. Lifestream Natural Calcium can also be used during pregnancy.
