Ions are electrically charged atoms or particles: cations are positive and anions are negative. Ions (from the Greek word “to go”) are more chemically active than non-charged particles because of the attraction of opposites. Ionic minerals are more readily absorbed because they are negatively charged and the lining of the stomach is positively charged.
The process of absorbing minerals is complex and requires a lot of energy. By taking minerals that have already been ionized, you make it easy for your body to absorb those minerals. That’s an important point, since vital physiological processes require ions to keep the body going. Ionic Fizz™ Super D-K Calcium Plus™ contains ionized minerals for enhanced absorption plus other ingredients specifically to help build strong bones.
Although bones contain up to 50 different minerals, calcium and magnesium play starring roles in bone maintenance. Ninety-nine percent of our calcium and 66% of our magnesium is in our bones, which are constantly being rebuilt. But both of these minerals are also necessary for healthy teeth and gums; heart, nerve and muscle function; cellular energy and structure; enzyme activation and much more.
Super D-K Calcium Plus contains ionized minerals that enhance bone health and, by association, strong teeth. Zinc and copper stimulate bone growth and healing of fractures. Zinc also reduces tooth decay and copper and silica help to maintain connective tissue including collagen. Potassium helps to balance sodium levels reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Manganese stimulates osteoblasts, the bone-building cells, and suppresses osteoclasts, the cells that break down bone. Boron is concentrated in bones and tooth enamel and it enhances calcium absorption, as does silica. And finally, ionic trace minerals from seawater are included. Although we don’t need them in large quantities, trace minerals are also essential for healthy bones.
Super D-K Calcium Plus also contains Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K as MK-7, both of which are necessary for calcium deposition in bone tissue. Vitamin C is essential for collagen formation and collagen makes up about 90% of the bone matrix where minerals are deposited. Vitamin A (as beta carotene) is an antioxidant necessary for bone formation and maintenance. Vitamins B-12, B-6 and folate work synergistically to control homocysteine. Elevated homocysteine levels have been linked to a greater risk of bone fractures (in postmenopausal women) as well as cardiovascular disease.
Super D-K Calcium Plus is the same great formula as Calcium Plus but it has more Vitamin D (1,000 IU) plus Vitamin K as menaquinone-7 (MK-7). It is naturally sweetened with lo han and stevia and is an easy and delicious way to support healthy bones.
