Info: 150 gram Powder; Raspberry Flavoured
Our bones are kept healthy and strong by a complex interplay of calcium, phosphorus, and certain essential vitamins, but our bone mass generally peaks at the age of 30 and can start deteriorating thereafter, especially when we reach our senior years (or even just post-menopause, for women). While many rely on dairy and other animal products to try to ensure they take in enough calcium to help maintain their bones, that is simply not an option for some. Similarly, due to the sheer amount of minerals needed, many supplements in this category come in very large capsules which are difficult to swallow. This new product solves both those problems with Vegan, non-GMO and gluten-free effervescent powder which quickly becomes a bubbly drink with a pleasant raspberry flavour just by adding a little hot water.
IonicBone uses a mineral complex produced from natural calcified Atlantic Seaweed (CAS®), which provides a third more elemental calcium than other leading organic calcium source; plus a vegan form of Vitamin K to help ensure that calcium gets used by the bones; plenty of magnesium, which helps get the calcium absorbed and metabolized, which contributes to the strength and firmness of the bones; and a good deal of the amino acid glycine, which helps us form collagen, and has been found to be associated with higher bone mineral density*.
Each 5.5 g teaspoon provides:
Magnesium (Magnesium bisglycinate): 200 mg
Calcium (Lithothamnion corallioides - Whole): 100 mg
Vegan Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) Vitashine™: 10 mcg (400 IU)
Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone 7) [K2Vital® Delta]: 60 mcg
Glycine (Aminoacetic acid): 1.7 g
Non-medicinal ingredients: Citric Acid, Raspberry Flavour, Xylitol, Stevia.
Take with food, either a few hours before or after taking other medications or natural health products (if applicable). Place 1 teaspoon of powder in a glass or mug; slowly add 6 ounces of hot water while stirring, allowing it to fizz and mix completely. It is best to do this in two stages: first adding 2 ounces of water, and allowing to dissolve completely, and then adding the additional 4 ounces to fizz up. Drink slowly.
Consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you are taking blood thinners. Ensure that you drink enough fluid before, during and after exercise. Health Canada Natural Product Number: 80086275.
