Reparen provides a source of ionic calcium and phosphorus which maintains bone health, healthy teeth and assists healthy bone development in children.
Reparen contains monobasic calcium phosphate, a water-soluble, ionic form of calcium which supports bone health, bone integrity, digestive and nervous system function. A diet deficient in calcium can lead to osteoporosis in later life. Calcium may help prevent osteoporosis when dietary intake is inadequate.
Reparen provides a source of phosphorus which is a major component of bone and supports healthy body tissues. It helps maintain energy production and healthy acid/alkali balance in the body.
Why is calcium important?
Calcium supports bone strength, bone integrity, joint cartilage health and muscle function. It maintains healthy muscle contraction, heart health, and digestive and nervous system function.
Why is phosphorus important?
Phosphorus is a major component of bone and supports healthy body tissues. It helps maintain energy production and healthy acid/alkali balance in the body.
Who may need more Calcium or Phosphorus?
• Athletes and Sports people
• Menopausal women
• Vegans and Vegetarians
• Pregnant Women
Calcium is an important factor in many cellular processes. Most calcium supplements come in a form that only breaks down in acid. Some only break down in water. Reparen has the benefit of being soluble both in water and stomach acid, so it can be easily broken down and readily absorbed.
Reparen uses a form of calcium phosphate which rapidly dissolves to provide the body with a ready source of ionic or free, physiologically active calcium. In the body, ionised calcium represents the calcium that is most metabolically active. Solid evidence demonstrates that ionised calcium rather than total calcium is the physiologically pertinent component of blood calcium. [Ref. Calvi L. et al. When is it appropriate to order an ionized calcium test? J Am. Soc. Nephrol. 2008:19; 1257-60]
Calcium and phosphorus are important essential minerals. They maintain bone health and healthy teeth and assist healthy bone development in children.
Why is Calcium and Phosphorus essential?
Vitamins and minerals can only be of assistance if dietary intake is inadequate.
