Description Usage Supplement Facts Also known as AdvaCal, 3A Calcium is created by heating elemental calcium to a very high temperature, and combining it with a natural amino-acid rich complex from sea algae. This produces a pure form of calcium with an extremely high absorption rate. 3A Calcium has performed exceptionally well in clinical studies. In four separate groups of patients taking 3A Calcium, bone density increased by an average of 10.6%, 7.8%, 5.7%, and 5.7% after 12 months. A fifth group took 3A Calcium for 24 months and had an average increase of 13.5% in bone density. 3A Calcium can be a life-saver for those with serious concerns about bone health. 3A Calcium was developed by Dr. Takuo Fujita, leading researcher and head of the Osteoporosis Foundation of Japan. Dr. Fujita focused his research efforts on developing a type of calcium that could be easily broken down and absorbed in the intestinal tract, even for older people who have weak digestion. By heating elemental calcium to a very high temperature, and combining it with a natural amino-acid rich complex from sea algae, Dr. Fujita developed a form of calcium with an extremely high absorption rate. 3A Calcium can be taken along with any type of hormone replacement therapy, or with osteoporosis drugs such as Fosamax and Evista. 3A Calcium is the #1 bone building calcium, clinically proven to build strong, more fracture resistant bones. 3A Calcium caplets are well tolerated in the stomach, safe, small and easy to swallow. Leading calcium supplements cannot increase bone density. It's been proven repeatedly in clinical trials. In contrast, 3A Calcium (AAAca) has consistently increased bone density in human studies, even increasing bone density in the critical spine area. That's why 3A Calcium is recognized as the #1 bone-building calcium. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
