NATURE'S SUNSHINE SKELETAL STRENGTH
Supports the health of the skeletal system such as the health of bones, cartilage, teeth and gums. Magnesium and Phosphorus help the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet, and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis
How It Works: Skeletal Strength is a vitamin, mineral and herbal supplement formulated to nourish the structural system of the body. The formula contains a wide range of nutrients known to benefit the structural system, as well as the nutritive herbs horsetail, parsley and valerian.
Recent research shows that calcium operates according to a diurnal time cycle. During the day when the body is active, calcium in nerve cells is utilized for muscle contraction and nerve transmissions. When this calcium is depleted, muscle fatigue is experienced. During sleep when the body is inactive, calcium is extracted from bone tissues to replenish cellular stores, that is, unless calcium is being adequately supplied in the diet.
Researchers have shown that taking calcium supplements at night helps to balance calcium levels in the blood, reducing the risk of calcium deficiency and osteoporosis.
There is more calcium in the body than any other mineral. Almost 99 percent (two to three pounds) of all the body’s calcium is found in the bones and teeth.
Calcium, magnesium and phosphorus all work together for healthy bones and teeth. When stress is present calcium is lost, and a deficiency in magnesium may occur in highly stressed individuals.
Magnesium has been referred to as the anti-stress mineral.
