From the makers of Supracal, well trusted brand in Iran Over a decade
Supracal K2 is a unique combination of vitamin and minerals that helps to maintain bone architecture and cardiac health.
Osteoporosis is estimated to affect over 200 million people all over the globe and it is a serious public health concern. Approximately, 40% of post-menopausal women and up to 30% of men will experience one or more fragility fractures in their lifetime.
The increase in prevalence of this disease is proportional to the age group. In Iran, osteoporosis and osteopenia are common problems in the population above 30 years. As per the evidences, it is clear that this health concern and associated complications will become a critical health issue in the near future.
Osteoporosis is quite a challenging condition due to its several causes. Deficiency of calcium, vitamin D, estrogen and several micronutrients play an important role in the deterioration of the skeletal bone mass. Bone health is essential for all age groups of people. Vitamins play a vital role in protecting and strengthening the bones. Thus, providing right supplements at the right time is essential.
Calcium and Vitamin D3: importance is known and recognized since ages.
During early times, the concept of healthy bone was limited only to calcium. But large scales studies have validated the importance of vitamin D and vitamin K2 for proper utilization of calcium into bones and body.
Calcium plays a key role in the body as it is essential for normal functioning of nerves, cells, muscle, and bone. In case of shortage of calcium in the blood, the body utilizes calcium from bones weakening the bones. Vitamin D helps in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. Having adequate amounts of vitamin D, calcium and phosphorous is important for building and strengthening of bones. Calcium, vitamin D, a well-balanced diet and healthy exercises are integral elements in any osteoporosis management strategy.
Clinical evidences indicated that there is a missing link in the metabolism of calcium and the role of vitamin K2-7 in addition to calcium and vitamin D.
Vitamin K is recognized as a significant prophylactic and therapeutic agent in the maintenance and improvement of bone mass and bone quality.
Adequate amount of vitamin K2 are required for bone health and studies have revealed that good amount of Vitamin K2 has been found to significantly low rate of bone fracture and cardiovascular events.
Role of Vitamin K in menopausal women has greater importance in osteoporosis and coronary artery disease. Menopausal women have estrogen deficiency which may increase the risk of cardiovascular and metabolic dysfunction and in this instance, this vitamin has greater role.
Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc are necessary for proper function and growth of several systems in the human body and thus contribute to the overall health of the individual.
Zinc plays significant role in the function of immune system, wound healing, and stimulation of bone formation. Zinc in combination with calcium, has a positive influence on osteoporosis risk. This combination is especially useful for growing children, elderly women who are prone to be affected by osteoporosis due to reduced zinc levels.
Magnesium is vital nutrient and is the active mineral at least 300 known enzymes in the body. It is essential for energy production, protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and regulation of blood pressure.
Osteoporosis means porous bones. Bones become weak and increase the risk of fractures especially hip, wrist, spinal, and vertebrae.
Osteopenia: it is a condition where the density of the bone decreases. This leads to weakening of bones and increases the risk for fractures.
Calcium is an essential nutrient that helps build and maintain healthy teeth and bones. Calcium also plays a role in muscle contraction, blood clotting and nerve function.* Most notably, as part of a healthy diet, adequate calcium throughout life may reduce the risk of osteoporosis, a disease that's characterized by a decrease in bone mass and an increase in bone fractures.
Calcium is important to people of all genders and ages. Men would benefit by taking calcium supplements; one in eight men over 50 years of age will sustain an osteoporosis-related fracture in his lifetime.
Calcium is also important for children. Even postmenopausal women can benefit from calcium intake as this can help slow the rate of bone loss. Adequate calcium throughout life, including during peak bone-mass-building years, as part of a healthful diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. Vitamin D is either derived from the diet or produced by skin exposure to sunshine, which can vary throughout the year. So in addition to getting enough calcium in your diet through food or supplements, you must be sure to get enough vitamin D and magnesium as well, to help calcium absorption.
Calcium supplements provide elemental calcium. Two forms of elemental calcium are calcium carbonate and calcium citrate. Calcium citrate absorption is 2.5 times better than calcium carbonate. Calcium citrate less likely to cause gastric irritations and constipation. It also reduces the risk of kidney stone formation. Calcium citrate absoption does not get affected with meals or without meals.
The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends 1200 mg of calcium daily for women and men over 51 years of age.
|Life Stage Group||Calcium Recommended Dietary Allowance (mg/day)|
|14 - 18 years old||1,300|
|19 - 30 years old||1,000|
|31 - 50 years old||1,000|
|51 - 70 years old||1,000|
|51 - 70 year old females||1,200|
|71+ years old||1,200|
|14 - 18 years old, pregnant/lactating||1,300|
|19 - 50 years old, pregnant/lactating||1,000|
