Our bones are in a constant state of remodeling: osteoclast cells dissolve our bones and osteoblast cells rebuild them.
As we grow older, bones dissolve more than they should, causing osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a physical condition in which bones have lost their normal density, increasing the risk of life-altering bone fractures. This condition affects 52 million people in the U.S. with 1 in 5 women being diagnosed after age 50.
When our bodies remodel our bones, some of the dissolved calcium is lost from the body altogether. To avoid developing weakened osteoporotic bones, this lost calcium needs to be replenished. Although balanced diets can provide a fair amount of calcium, our bodies often use up much of our calcium intake on other bodily processes. Calcium alone regulates more than 300 chemical reactions in the body, so supplementing our bodies with some extra help is important.
Totally Calcium® makes it easy to supply the body with extra calcium, helping make sure that our bones can keep up with our active lives.
