New Chapter Calcium Supplement – Bone Strength Whole Food Calcium with Vitamin K2 + D3 + Magnesium, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free 120 count (40 day supply)
The plant calcium in Bone Strength Take Care™ is sourced from Red Marine Algae (Lithothamnion) sustainably harvested from along the pristine Icelandic coastline. Many calcium supplements are not from plants but from limestone rock which lacks many other bone-supportive nutrients.
Our Red Marine Algae grows wild along the coast where it is allowed to mature naturally, then is sustainably harvested. Young, living plants are left untouched, preserving the vital coastal ecosystem.
Calcium Supplement Benefits For Women
Women have a lower bone density than men, so they need a regular source of calcium and vitamin D to keep their bones sturdy.
A woman’s body functions in a far more complex way than a man’s. A woman’s body goes through many different phases like menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause. As the body goes through these phases, the nutritional demand of the body increases. Also, women have a lower bone density than men, so they need a regular source of calcium and vitamin D to keep their bones sturdy.
With growing age, the essential nutrients present in the body, like iron, vitamin B12, vitamin D and calcium, start decreasing, especially in the case of women. Moreover, as women reach menopause, their ovaries stop producing estrogen, a hormone that promotes the formation of bone-forming cells in a woman’s body. As the levels of estrogen drop, the absorption of calcium by the bones also reduces, leading to weaker bones.
Calcium Supplements for Bone Strenght
Supplementation of calcium has its place, especially in populations where calcium needs are increased or calcium-rich foods are lacking. When deciding what type and how much calcium to supplement, you should assess how much calcium is missing from your diet and what form of calcium supplement is most appropriate for your individual circumstances.
There are two main forms of calcium found in supplements: carbonate, which is 40 percent calcium by weight, and citrate, which is 21 percent calcium. However, as the percent of elemental calcium increases, absorption decreases, which means that calcium citrate is actually more readily absorbed. This form is also better tolerated by people who have low amounts of stomach acid.
Vitamin D and Calcium Supplementation for Bone Health
Recognizing high rates of dietary calcium and vitamin D deficiency in their patients, many clinicians prescribe calcium and vitamin D supplementation to maintain bone health and prevent debilitating and life-threatening fractures, particularly in older patients. Recent studies and meta-analyses, however, have arrived at differing conclusions about the efficacy and safety of supplements. With more than 50% of older men and more than 60% of older women taking calcium supplements, it’s time for a closer look at some of these studies.
Benefits of Vitamin D and calcium supplements are minimal
Many women take calcium and Vitamin D supplements after menopause, in hopes of reducing their chances of breaking a bone and of attaining other health benefits.

Calcium plays a critical role in many areas of health, including bone health, normal muscle and nerve function, blood clotting, cellular health, and the release of certain hormones. Calcium is even required for a normal heartbeat! Given this vital role, our bodies try to maintain a constant level of calcium. If blood calcium levels are low due to dietary intake, then calcium is taken from our bones and used by the body—which can affect bone strength. Replacing this lost calcium on a daily basis is essential to maintaining normal calcium levels in bones. That’s a great reason to seek the best calcium supplement for you!||The Plant-Based Calcium Difference Did you know that typical calcium supplements are derived from limestone rock? Simple, rock-based calcium has a flat, basic architecture and lacks many other bone-supportive nutrients. Bone Strength Take Care is different. Plant-sourced and porous, this Calcium is part of an intricate matrix of minerals that are organized in a natural honeycomb structure. For holistic bone health, it delivers whole-food Calcium, Magnesium, and multiple other trace minerals.
