Choose your calcium supplement carefully
Berthelsen KalkBalance+ is an effective calcium tablet that contains the new bioactive bone mineral Aquamin®, magnesium from 2 sources, vegan vitamin D3 from lichen and vitamin K2 (MK-7). This combination is necessary to maintain and care for the body's bones effectively, as all 4 active ingredients are interdependent, to achieve the best result and keep the body's calcium level in balance.
The bioactive and easily absorbable Aquamin® calcium and magnesium are added in a ratio of 2:1. Magnesium is extremely important in relation to your calcium intake, as magnesium regulates the distribution of calcium in the body's cells and provides calcium to the bone cells, while the calcium content in softer tissues, such as Muscle cells, blood vessels, skin cells and connective tissue are allocated far less calcium.
In addition, studies show that magnesium embedded in the bone matrix helps the body's osteoblasts to form new bone cells. Vitamin D3 ensures optimal absorption of the calcium, and vitamin K2 activates the protein osteocalcin, which ensures that the calcium is deposited in the bones and not in the blood vessels.
What is Aquamin®?
Aquamin® is a unique marine multimineral complex, which is extracted from the red algae Lithothamnion calcareum.
Aquamin® contains bioactive calcium, magnesium and 72 other trace minerals. The many trace minerals in Aquamin® are all building blocks for the body's many functions, and must be supplied from the outside, as the body cannot produce minerals itself. Aquamin® is thus ideal for this purpose.
Aquamin®'s unique structure is very porous, and is therefore much easier for the body to absorb than calcium sources extracted on land. Sea plants (including algae and seaweed) are also 10 – 20 times richer in minerals than plants that grow on land.
Aquamin® is also 100% sustainable, as you only harvest the fully mature algae that have reached their highest content of nutrients, namely when the algae has finished growing. Aquamin® is harvested in the cool waters northwest of Iceland, where the warm water from the Gulf Stream meets the cold water from the Arctic, creating the perfect growth conditions for the red algae Lithothamnion calcareum.
The advantages of Aquamin® are thus:
- Natural and vegan multi-mineral source
- 100% sustainable source
- Clinical studies of the health-promoting effects of Aquamin®
- Maintains bones and teeth
The Aquamin® raw material has the following certifications:
- Certified by the Organic Trust so that Aquamin® can be used in organic products
- Certified NON-GMO. Aquamin® therefore contains NO genetically modified components
- Certified FDA GRAS – Generally Recognized As Safe. Aquamin® is thereby approved by the FDA
- Certified Kosher and Halal
- HACCP and ISO certified production facilities, which is why consumers are guaranteed the highest standards for food safety.
Joint Health Research; A natural seaweed derived mineral supplement (Aquamin F) for knee osteoarthritis: A randomized, placebo-controlled pilot study. By Frestedt, Kuskowski & Zenk, Nutrition Journal 2009: 8:7
The result: the Aquamin® group got significantly more points in the Range of Motion test, and showed a significant increase in the walking distance in the "6 Minute Walking Distance" test.
