Older Men Lose Bone At the Same Rate as Women.
Weak bones are not just a women’s issue. Men experience age-related decreases in bone density and calcium absorption. According to the NIH, men and women over 65 lose bone mass at roughly the same rate. AdvaCAL for MEN contains patented AAACa calcium,. AAACa calcium and its ingredients, have been studied in women , women and and men and men alone, spanning 20 years Women and men taking AdvaCAL saw significant gains in bone density at 6 months, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years vs. placebo. The average increase after 3 years was +8%.
A daily serving features 1000 mg of AAACa calcium and 1000 IU of Vitamin D3, plus magnesium, and Vitamin K2 plus nutritionals targeted for a man's specific health needs.
Built-In Prostate Protection
AdvaCAL for Men features three ingredients recommended by health experts for aggressive prostate support and protection: Vitamin D3 (calcitrol, which also supports bone metabolism), saw palmetto and pumpkin seed. You’ll find full servings of these ingredients, at levels used in research, in of AdvaCAL for Men.
Key to a Healthier Prostate
Being born male may lead to bigger, stronger bones , but even those heavier bones can thin dramatically with age. It’s never too early or too late to fight back. Take AdvaCAL for Men (or give it to the man in your life). No other supplement offers this effective combination of bone and prostate support.
Advanced Absorption and PTH Modulation
AdvaCAL is a patented, ionic calcium. It starts out as oyster shell, which is then smelted at 800° C. Smelting changes the chemical structure of oyster shell from calcium carbonate to calcium oxide and calcium hydroxide. The superheating process also removes nearly all of the heavy metals, such as lead, found in oyster shell. The end result is a highly absorbable calcium that can supply all the daily needs of your heart and nervous system with a surplus left to build bone density. As a final step, the calcium in AdvaCAL is potentiated with HAI (Heated Algal Ingredient). HAI is a patented amino acid complex from super-heated hijiki seaweed. Tiny amounts of HAI have been scientifically shown to further elevate calcium absorption. Calcium oxide and calcium hydroxide + HAI (known as AAACa calcium) provide superior calcium absorption and PTH modulation. AAACa calcium has demonstrated consistent improvements in bone mineral density in clinical research and is only available in AdvaCAL.
The human body can only absorb pure ("elemental") calcium. In young adults, stomach acid has the power to release elemental calcium from most calcium forms. But as we grow older our stomachs secrete less acid, and the process breaks down. Because of its solubility and unique structure, AAACa calcium can easily release elemental calcium in the body, even with little stomach acid production. That means higher absorption and more calcium reaching your bones. Studies show that AAACa calcium has a final bone benefit: it modulates PTH (parathyroid hormone) secretions, which can needlessly deplete calcium from bone.
In one clinical study, postmenopausal women and men taking AdvaCAL increased their bone density on average by 8% more than those taking a placebo after 3 years. Your results will vary.
Takuo Fujita, M.D., is past president of Japan's Osteoporosis Foundation and author of over 400 scientific papers on calcium. He has studied AdvaCAL and its ingredients for two decades. "Bone loss is preventable" according to Dr. Fujita. Emphasizing the importance of good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, Dr. Fujita advises those concerned about weak bones to exercise, eat a low-salt, low-phosphorous diet, avoid smoking, and take AdvaCAL everyday. He told his audience in no uncertain terms, "Take the best calcium - not the cheapest one!"
Frequently Asked Questions
How is AdvaCAL unique?
AdvaCAL is the only line of calcium supplements with AAACa calcium, the #1 bone–building calcium. AAACa calcium (AdvaCAL) has shown statistically significant improvement in bone density in four different, published human studies. Participants in that research included women and men in their 60s and women in their 80s. In those studies, bone density improvement started as early as 4 months, up to 3 years.
There are many different types of calcium. The calcium is identical in each case but the salt to which the calcium is attached varies. These different combinations can dramatically affect absorption of calcium. Calcium carbonate, which is used in many calcium supplements, is poorly absorbed under certain conditions and can create stomach gas. Hydroxyappatite (from calf bone) is even less soluble than calcium carbonate. Calcium citrate is bulky, resulting in a large pill size.
AdvaCAL is highly soluble and does not produce stomach gas. The capsules are small and easy to swallow. Most importantly, AdvaCAL has consistently and significantly increased average bone density in multiple human clinical studies.
Who should take AdvaCAL?
Women and men concerned about bone loss would benefit most from AdvaCAL. Bone loss begins typically around age 35 and accelerates dramatically in women at menopause.
Can AdvaCAL help increase bone density?
Yes. In one study, average bone density of postmenopausal women and men taking AdvaCAL increased 8% over those taking a placebo. Your results may vary.
How does AdvaCAL work?
AdvaCAL works at least two ways to build bone density. First, the AAACa calcium in AdvaCAL is highly absorbable. AAACa calcium is patented and comprised of bioavailable calcium oxide and calcium hydroxide plus a seaweed amino extract called HAI. In scientific research HAI improved calcium absorption. Second, AAACa calcium helps modulate PTH hormone activity. PTH robs calcium from bone.
Which AdvaCAL is right for me?
AdvaCAL is available as AdvaCAL 1000, AdvaCAL Ultra 1000 and AdvaCAL INTENSIVE. AdvaCAL 1000 and AdvaCAL Ultra provide 1000 mg of AAACa elemental calcium and 1000 IU of Vitamin D3 daily. Either is appropriate for women under 50 and men of any age. AdvaCAL Ultra 1000 also contains seven bone nutrients, including magnesium, vitamins K2 and C, copper, zinc, boron and manganese. AdvaCAL INTENSIVE is designed especially for women 50+, as bone loss accelerates at menopause and beyond. AdvaCAL INTENSIVE contains more AAACa calcium, more vitamin D3 plus clinically proven bone builders— a specific blend of copper, zinc and manganese.
Is AdvaCAL more effective with added magnesium?
Not necessarily. A study published in the 1999 American Journal of Nutrition suggests that the bone benefit of magnesium results from its alkalinity (i.e. high pH). Because the AAACa calcium in AdvaCAL is already highly alkaline, it likely offers the same alkalinity bone benefit as magnesium. Those who desire to take magnesium with their AdvaCAL should use AdvaCAL Ultra 1000 which contains 600 mg of magnesium per daily serving.
What are the directions for use?
Take 3 capsules in the morning and 3 capsules at bedtime, preferably with food. PTH activity, which robs calcium from bone, is believed to be most active during sleep, so taking AdvaCAL before bed can be especially beneficial. Some research also suggests that calcium may enhance sleep.
When could I see a change in bone density from taking AdvaCAL?
In clinical research AAACa calcium ( AdvaCAL) showed an increase in trabecular bone density in as little as four months. Studies with AdvaCAL on spinal or radial bone density showed significant improvement at 6, 12, 18, 24 and 36 months. The addition of vitamin D3, plus bone nutrients or builders in AdvaCAL 1000, AdvaCAL ULTRA or AdvaCAL INTENSIVE may help improve your overall bone density. The best way to monitor improvement is through bone density tests as recommended by your doctor.
What other lifestyle changes can I make to improve my bone health?
Most experts recommend that you:
- Engage in regular weight-bearing and muscle strengthening exercise (three or more times weekly)
- Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol
- Talk to your health care provider about bone health
- Have a bone density test done regularly
Are AdvaCAL capsules large?
No. Some calcium supplements are available as large horse pills. Other calcium chewables are chalky tasting. AdvaCAL 1000, AdvaCAL Ultra 1000 and AdvaCAL INTENSIVE capsules are all small and easy to swallow. The smallest is the AdvaCAL 1000 capsule.
Are there any side effects?
AdvaCAL calcium is safe and well tolerated by most people. People with chronic granulomatous disorders may wish to consult with a physician first if concerned about the vitamin D in AdvaCAL. There also are many side benefits to taking AdvaCAL. Published studies suggest that calcium intake may support sleep, balance, weight management, more secure teeth and PMS symptoms.
Can I take AdvaCAL with prescription Osteoporosis medications?
Generally yes, as commonly prescribed Osteoporosis drugs do not supply necessary calcium to the body.
Can I take AdvaCAL if I am pregnant or nursing?
Generally yes, but it's recommended consulting with your doctor first.
Is AdvaCAL free of gluten and dairy?
Osteoporosis is characterized by weakened and fragile bone tissue, leading to an increased chance of breaking a bone. The weakened tissue is due to changes in the amount and structure of the bone. While people with osteoporosis are most likely to break bones in the spine, hip or wrist, almost any bone can be affected. The bone breaks often occur with minor accidents such as falls, or banging into objects, but can even occur without an injury.
Calcium carbonate from algae (so-called "algae calcium") has one, unpublished 6-month study available. Participants took algae calcium, strontium, two different levels of bone nutrients and followed a bone-healthy diet and exercise plan. Only one of the two groups showed "improved" bone density. The "improved" group took higher levels of bone nutrients, suggesting that those nutrients may have been more beneficial than the algae calcium. In contrast, participants taking AdvaCAL calcium alone after 4-6 months had impressive increases in bone density in three different studies without strontium, bone nutrients, exercise or diet changes.
