Osteoporosis or bone decalcification is becoming a bigger problem. At the moment, one in three women and one in eight men aged over 55 will experience it. It is estimated that more than 800,000 people in the Netherlands have osteoporosis. The expectation is that these numbers will increase in the coming years. Not only because of the aging of our country, but also because of the increasing number of young people who are affected by this condition. In young people this is due to a wrong diet at a young age. In osteoporosis, the bones become so weak that they can only break. The most common fractures are wrist, hip and vertebral fractures. Every year, more than 83,000 people break a bone as a result of bone loss. A lot can be done to prevent osteoporosis, but then you have to be there on time. Research shows, however, that in most cases osteoporosis is only discovered when something breaks. So it is best to take preventive action.
Bone is living tissue. It is constantly being built up and broken down throughout your life. Until the thirtieth year, the build-up is greater than the breakdown, which makes the bone firmer and grows. After the 35th year, the degradation gradually becomes greater than the build-up, so that the bones become less firm. This in itself is not such a problem as the maximum bone mass is built up and there are therefore healthy solid bones. However, there are groups of people whose bone mass is broken down faster, so they have a greater chance of osteoporosis.
The risk groups include:
• Women who have osteoporosis in the family.
• Women who are already in transition in their 45th year.
• Women in whom the uterus and / or ovaries have been removed.
• Persons who have had an eating disorder.
• Persons with a disorder in the hormone system.
• People who do little physical activity or are bedridden.
• Persons with a chronic bowel disease.
• Persons who smoke and / or drink heavily.
Calcium (lime) is also indispensable for the growing youth because the 'growth' requires a lot of calcium from the body. Even older people, especially women in the transitional years, do well to use extra lime. But for a good one
to produce bone formation, more substances are needed.
That is why Kalk Complex not only contains calcium and magnesium, but also vitamins C and D. The added minerals (copper, zinc, manganese and selenium) also play a role in building healthy bone tissue. An additional advantage of the Kalk Complex is that the tablets do not contain lactose.
The following overview can give you an idea of what substances your body receives when using Kalk Complex and what they do in the body. The combination of these substances in Kalk Complex make this product a very special joint formula. The mineral calcium (lime) gives firmness to the skeleton and teeth. Calcium is also necessary for the proper functioning of the muscles and for guiding stimuli to the nerves. Calcium is also involved in blood clotting, cell growth and hormone metabolism. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), a water-soluble, is primarily important for good resistance. In addition, it ensures healthy bones, teeth and blood vessels. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant and protects the body together with vitamin E against free radicals. Free radicals play a role in aging processes. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron.
Vitamin D, a fat-soluble vitamin, is important for strong bones and teeth and promotes the absorption of the minerals calcium and phosphorus in the body. Vitamin D also plays a role in the maintenance of the resistance and in the proper functioning of the muscles. The most important source of vitamin D is the sunlight. Vitamin D is produced in the skin under the influence of sunlight. Manganese is necessary for the formation of bone tissue. Furthermore, manganese is involved in the metabolism of amino acids, cholesterol and carbohydrates. Copper ensures that iron is captured in hemoglobin, the red dye in our blood, and therefore plays a role in the oxygen transport in the body. Copper is also involved in the pigmentation of skin and hair and in connective tissue and bone formation. Manganese is necessary for the formation of bone tissue. Furthermore, manganese is involved in the metabolism of amino acids, cholesterol and carbohydrates. Zinc is necessary for the development of proteins and thus for the growth and renewal of tissue. In addition, it plays a role in the build-up and breakdown of carbohydrates. Zinc is part of the hormone insulin and it ensures that the immune system works well.
