100% Food Calcium Complex is a plant source of calcium. It does not contain calcium mineral salts such as calcium carbonate, calcium citrate, or calcium lactate.
Contains naturally occurring carbohydrates, lipids, proteins (including all ten essential amino acids), superoxide dismutase, and truly organic bioflavonoids as found in enzymatically processed Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Rice bran Oryza sativa, Mixed vegetable fiber Cellula vegetabalis, Kelp thallus Ascophyllum nodesum, Dulse plant Rhodymenia palmatta, and Buckwheat rutin Fagopyrum esculentum —all the nutrients shown above are contained in these foods. Unlike many so-called “natural” calcium formulas, Calcium Complex is a true food calcium (not a mineral salt) contains no synthetic USP nutrients or mineral salts, but only contains foods, food complexes, and food concentrates.
Numerous university studies have concluded that supplements containing food nutrients are better than USP isolates. Food nutrients are better because they contain important enzymes, peptides, and phytonutrients CRITICAL to the UTILIZATION of vitamins and minerals which are not present in isolated USP nutrients. Published research has concluded that food vitamins are superior synthetic/USP vitamins.
Some of these studies (or citations) may not conform to peer review standards, therefore, the results are not conclusive.
