Natural Vitality - Osteo Calm Bone Health Support Natural Orange -Vanilla Flavor - 30 oz. (887 mL)
Peter Gillham's Natural Vitality Osteo Calm Bone Health Support is formulated for premium bone health support by an equal balance of calcium and magnesium to account for calcium already in most daily diets. Natural Vitality Osteo Calm Bone Health Support helps avoid a buildup of excess unassimilated calcium.
Natural Vitality hears a lot about calcium and how important it is to our bones. But what they don’t hear is that the balance of calcium and magnesium is a critical factor not only to bone health but to overall health in general. Magnesium helps the body absorb and transport calcium into the bones and makes bones stronger and more flexible. Approximately 50 percent of total body magnesium is found in bone.
According to the National Institutes of Health, Office of Dietary Supplements, “Some evidence suggests that magnesium deficiency may be an additional risk factor for postmenopausal osteoporosis. This may be due to the fact that magnesium alters calcium metabolism and the hormones that regulate calcium. Several human studies have suggested that magnesium supplementation may improve bone mineral density to a greater degree than a lower magnesium intake. Diets that provide recommended levels of magnesium are beneficial for bone health.”
Many experts agree that the majority of the population don’t meet the minimum daily requirement for magnesium in their everyday diets. Magnesium supplementation is the way to balance calcium intake (from diet and/or dietary supplements) and to maintain a healthy level of magnesium—required for over 300 of the body’s biochemical processes. It is important to note that this applies to both women and men. Statistically, one in two women and one in four men over age 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their future. The total annual bill for osteoporotic fractures alone is estimated to be $30 billion.
The Liquid Revolution
No matter how good the vitamins or mineral supplements are that you start with, they are only as good as they are bioavailable. Supplements must be absorbed and assimilated into the body and be available at the proper area in order to be of use. All pills and capsules have to dissolve into liquid form before they can be absorbed and assimilated. Some people with weaker digestive systems (and digestive ability often weakens with age) don’t fully break these down and the result is only partial or no absorption, so the pill or capsule doesn’t do much, if any, good.
At Natural Vitality we begin with liquid. There is nothing to break down. The nutrients are naturally engineered for bioavailability. For those who have trouble taking pills and capsules, a liquid avoids this problem altogether. You also get fast action, as you don’t have to wait for supplements to be digested.
Premium Quality Ingredients
Osteo Calm is designed around top brand-name ingredients. They use GloCal calcium. It has solubility (which means it goes into solution in liquid) and bioavailability significantly superior to many other forms of calcium, such as calcium carbonate.
Their magnesium is Natural Calm, the best-selling magnesium in the natural products market for three years running. It also is super soluble (both Natural Calm and GloCal will go clear when mixed in water)and has excellent bioavailability.
Vitamins to Support Bone Health
Along with vitamins A, C, B6 and folic acid, two vitamins stand out as having an important role in bone health.
Vitamin D3 is essential for the efficient use of calcium by the body. According to the National Coalition for Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases, “Vitamin D is necessary for the absorption of calcium….For bone health in particular, calcium partners with vitamin D; a deficiency of either can contribute to the mechanism of bone loss.”
Vitamin K2 is needed for proper bone formation. It helps put calcium in the bones rather than in your artery walls (where you don’t want it).
All minerals in Osteo Calm that contribute to strong bones are in ionic form (having molecular charge that allows the element to readily bond with water) for better absorption. These include zinc, manganese, potassium and boron.
Convenient and Tasty
Osteo Calm is formulated for effectiveness but also to be a convenient and enjoyable experience. Simply mix a half capful with an equal amount of water. Most people comment on its natural orange-vanilla flavor. There’s no sugar or fructose added—simply organic agave nectar and organic stevia. There are also none of the binders or fillers used in pills and capsules.
We suggest starting with ? capful and gradually increasing to ? capful twice a day, then working up to ½ capful twice daily. Because magnesium can have a mild natural laxative effect (which is good news for many who experience constipation), you can judge the optimal amount when bowels are comfortably loose.
Your body needs calcium, magnesium and vitamin D every day. We hope you’ll find Osteo Calm a pleasant way to help you feel healthier and be happier.
About Natural Vitality
Natural Vitality is a purpose-driven organization.
They believe that the general level of health Americans experience today is far from ideal. What is considered “normal” constitutes the acceptance of aches and pains, lack of energy, the aging process and a long potential list of non-optimum conditions.
With the epidemic of obesity and diabetes in America, it is dawning even on the most reluctant, that there is a relation between what they put into their bodies and the level of health they experience.
In the last 70 years, the shift over to factory farming, both in produce and in livestock, has greatly contributed to the declining nutrient value of the food they eat. An example of this is the fact that you would need to eat five apples today just to get the same nutrients from eating one apple back in 1965!
It’s hard to imagine that with supermarkets filled with such a variety of fruits, vegetables and meat that they have become used to in this country that they might be suffering the effects of malnutrition. But they certainly feel it. It may be stress or low energy or trouble sleeping or headaches or indigestion or many other possible symptoms but the bottom line is that their bodies are not getting the minerals and vitamins they need to function properly.
Natural Vitality is best known for its flagship product Natural Calm, The Anti-Stress Drink. For over five years in a row, Natural Calm has been the best-selling magnesium supplement in any form (SPINS 2011). Natural Calm was also recognized by Vitamin Retailer magazine with its Vity Award in 2010 and again in 2011 and by Better Nutrition magazine for three consecutive years with its Best of Supplements Award. Natural Calm is approved by Mommy MD Guides and Ashley Koff, RD Natural Calm is available from all leading distributors and is sold in natural products stores in America, Canada, Italy, Russia, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Iceland, Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Taiwan.
Their popular Organic Life Vitamins is a complete liquid multi-nutrient made with certified organic ingredients. OLV provides a food-based cornerstone of quality nutrition in liquid form for quick absorption and maximum bioavailability. It is unique among whole-food liquids for both its comprehensiveness and its light fruit taste, with organic raspberry and cranberry extracts sweetened with organic agave nectar and organic stevia.
Natural Calm Plus Calcium is their sports formula. It is very popular with elite athletes as it virtually eliminates muscle cramping.
From their experience with magnesium and calcium, they have found that a ratio of 1:1 calcium to magnesium (or even slightly more magnesium) both supports bone health and avoids the buildup of unassimilated calcium that can lead to problems associated with calcification. Osteo Calm is a liquid formula for bone health support that is unique in featuring this ratio along with vitamins and minerals designed to enhance calcium absorption.

They Take Their Social Responsibility Very Seriously.
Their vision at Natural Vitality is a higher level of health. Health is not a static condition and needs to be viewed in context with the total environment.
While nutritional supplements are required to repair, maintain and enhance health, it is vitally important to limit the number of toxins found in food and in the environment. They have created a society with about 80,000 industrial chemicals and many of these chemicals end up in the food chain one way or another.
In order to address this broader view of health, they devote a percentage of their profits to their Natural Revitalization environmental action initiative, now in its fourth year. As part of this, they support both financially and actively, a number of non-profit groups covering areas of food safety, animal welfare, soil regeneration and carbon sequestration, the practical development (including growing, certification, distribution and marketing) of a new category of nutrient dense produce and support of local, sustainable farms through Chef Rick Bayless’ Frontera Farmer Foundation.
They also publish their online magazine, Organic Connections that covers food, health, the environment and green technology.
