Reparen is a bone, tissue and muscle maintenance support supplement that supplies the body with a ready source of calcium phosphate.
Reparen contains monobasic calcium phosphate, a special water-soluble, ionic form of calcium which helps support healthy bones, tissue and muscle function.
Reparen provides a source of nutritional calcium and phosphorus. Calcium and phosphorus are integral to bone, tissue, muscle function, cartilage integrity. Calcium and phosphorus are essential nutrients for a wide range of physiological functions and needs in the body.
Why is calcium important?
Calcium is not only important for bone health, it is also required for healthy muscular contraction and relaxation and plays a role in normal cell division. Calcium has a role in the conduction of nerve impulses as well as neurotransmitter and hormone release. It also supports healthy heart function by playing a vital role in the heartbeat’s regulatory cycle. Calcium is involved in digestion; additionally it carries out a vital role in various enzymes responsible for fat digestion and protein metabolism.
Why is phosphorus important?
Phosphorus is needed for healthy growth and development in children. It helps tissue repair and maintenance and supports bodily energy production. Phosphorus is also important for helping maintain the body’s healthy acid/alkali balance and cell membrane structural integrity.
Who may need more Calcium or Phosphate?
• 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 individually, but they also act synergistically within the body to support bone, tissue, muscle, cartilage, tendon, ligament, skin and teeth health.
