|Calcium, Magnesium||Essential minerals of the body and building blocks of bones. Important in the strengthening of bones and teeth, and the prevention of osteoporosis; functions in the regulation of heart rate and muscle contraction; maintains nerve reactions.|
|Collagen complexes||Mainly consists of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) and type II collagen, used in the synthesis of proteoglycans (PG, major component of extracellular matrix). One function of PG is the binding of calcium to prevent calcium loss and increasing bone density and tensile strength. Another function is the involvement in the formation of collagen and elastin, hebnce promoting cartilage and ligament repair and regeneration to prevent formation of spurs.|
|Zinc||Synergistic role, fast-acting, high absorption and bioavailability. Zinc deficiency prevents protein synthesis and causes loss in appetite, hence affecting child growth and development.|
– Supplements and nourishes the bone to prevent osteoporosis
– Collagen composites in binding calcium
– Scientific formulation of “Calcium + Magnesium” for easy absorption
– Supplements daily zinc recommended dietary allowance for balanced nutrition. Suitable for children.
Target Patient Groups
– People with calcium deficiency due to bad eating habits: smoking, alcoholism, overconsumption of soft drinks, concentrated tea and coffee
– Vegetarians (excessive fibre in food reduces calcium absorption)
– Elderly people (poor absorption and significant loss)
– Teenagers in puberty
– Menopausal or post-menopausal women

Introduction to collagen complexes
Collagen complexes consist of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) and type II collagen which are used in the synthesis of proteoglycans. Collagen acts as an adhesive agent in the metabolic process. It also promotes cellular metabolism, increases cartilage nutrition and increases bone density and strength, hence preventing osteoporosis and promoting growth and development.
