A Dietary Supplement
from Douglas Laboratories® provide 1,500 mg of elemental calcium from
calcium carbonate, citrate, and caseinate, together with significant
amounts of Vitamin D and magnesium oxide and citrate. Other nutrients
are also included to assist the body in maintaining healthy bone
Dyna-Cal tablets may be a useful dietary
supplement for those at risk for osteoporosis, or anyone who wishes to
increase their intake of calcium and other nutritional factors for
maintaining good bone health.
The adult human body contains
approximately 1,200 g of calcium, about 99% of which is present in the
skeleton, and 20-30 g of magnesium with about 60% located in bone. Bone
is constantly turning over, a continuous process of formation and
resorption. In children and adolescents, the rate of formation of bone
mineral predominates over the rate of resorption. In later life,
resorption predominates over formation. Therefore, in normal aging,
there is a gradual loss of bone. Intestinal calcium absorption ranges
from 15 to 75% of ingested calcium.
Vitamin D is a key
regulatory hormone for calcium and bone metabolism. Adequate Vitamin D
status is essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and
maintenance of healthy calcium plasma levels. Magnesium absorption is
independent of Vitamin D status and ranges from 30 to 60% of ingested
magnesium. Osteoporosis, a condition of reduced bone mineral density
that can increase risk of fractures, affects a large proportion of the
elderly in developed countries.
Caucasian and Asian women
typically have low peak bone densities, and therefore, are at the
greatest risk of developing osteoporosis. It is generally accepted that
obtaining enough dietary calcium throughout life can significantly
decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis. Among other factors, such
as regular exercise, gender and race, calcium supplementation during
childhood and adolescence appears to be a prerequisite for maintaining
adequate bone density later in life.
But even elderly
osteoporotic patients can benefit significantly from supplementation
with dietary calcium. Dyna-Cal provides a highly beneficial source of
dietary calcium together with other nutrients that assist in the
maintenance of healthy bone structure and function. For example, boron
affects the composition, structure, and strength of bone. It appears to
be necessary for calcium and magnesium absorption, their adequate renal
reabsorption, and their incorporation into the bone matrix. Boron is
absorbed at about 90% efficiency and is rapidly distributed among the
