Calcium Hydroxyapatite is young bovine bone, and is processed without heat or chemicals to retain all bone minerals and organic residues completely intact and in their natural physiological ratios. It is the organic components of bone -- collagen, mucopolysaccarides, amino acids, etc. -- that contribute to the enhanced absorption of calcium into the bone.
Calcium Hydoxyapatite is the microcrystalline form of calcium and phosphorus in the exact ratio formed by the body. According to clinical trials, Hydoxyapatite Calcium is one of the most absorbable and effective forms of calcium for the prevention of bone loss. The surface of hydroxyapatite helps attract and hold in reserve the Potassium, Magnesium, Boron, Zinc, Silica, and Chromium that are also included in this powerful product. This calcium complex also contains proteoglycans, primarily chondroitin (chondroitin sulfate), gel-like substances that fill the bone matrix and transfer minerals in and out of bone tissue.
Calcium hydroxyapatite (HA) is the primary mineral component of bones and teeth. It can be found in rocks as well as in sea coral. Solid HA is coated onto titanium, titanium alloys, or stainless steel and used to make bone implants. HA may also be used in a spreadable paste form to repair bone. This material forms a porous surface onto which tissue may adhere and grow. The chemical structure of HA is that of a hydrated calcium phosphate.
Calcium hydroxyapatite crystal is the inorganic portion of bone and makes up 75% of the dry weight of bone. Calcium hydroxyapatite is a complex salt in which three molecules of calcium phosphate are linked with one molecule of calcium hydroxide and includes other minerals such as magnesium, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, silicon, and iron. The inorganic matrix of bone is responsible for providing bones with the ability to withstand hard impact, such as jogging. Calcium hydroxyapatite is highly absorbable and a superior source of calcium that provides other essential minerals and proteins necessary for bone health.
