AAACa
by Andrew Lane: CEO of LaneLabs

 
AAACa calcium, and its ingredients, have been the subject of 30 medical journal articles, spanning 20 years of research. AdvaCAL is a recognized partner of the National Osteoporosis Foundation, has been recommended twice by the Health Sciences Institute and has been selected as a “Best Supplement” award winner by two leading natural health magazines.

AAACa calcium, and its ingredients, have been the subject of 30 medical journal articles, spanning 20 years of research.

.

AdvaCAL is the only line of calcium supplements with AAACa calcium, the #1 bone–building calcium. AAACa, a patented ionic calcium, has shown statistically significant improvement in bone density in four published human studies. Participants in that research included women and men in their 60s and women in their 80s. In those studies bone density improvement started as early as 4 months, up to 3 years. The average increase over placebo ranged from 2.6% to 3.3% per year in long term studies.*

Below are summaries of Research that have been done one AAACa:


BONE DENSITY INCREASE

A report in A medical journal summarized 32 studies conducted between 1977 and 2008 on calcium intake and bone density. The 32 multi-year studies involved 3,169 postmenopausal women, 79 skeletal measures and 7 different types of calcium. AdvaCAL users reported impressive results. With AdvaCAL, average bone density increased +1.5% per year, +3.3% per year compared to a placebo.* Click here to compare multi-year research results.

FRACTURE RISK

A report in the medical journal The Lancet examined results from 17 different studies conducted between 1992 and 2006 on calcium intake and fracture risk. The 17 studies involved men and women over 50, taking 6 different calciums either alone or with vitamin D over multiple years. A study in which participants took AdvaCAL reported an impressive reduction in fracture-risk.* Because the AdvaCAL fracture risk study was small, more research is suggested.

ABSORPTION

A 2010 study published in the journal, Nutrients, found that AdvaCAL calcium (AAACa) was 57% better absorbed than the most popular type of calcium -- calcium carbonate. In this study, both AdvaCAL calcium and calcium carbonate were taken with food. This new study showed a statistically significant improvement in calcium absorption from AdvaCAL using dual stable isotope measurement, considered the gold standard in calcium absorption testing. Calcium carbonate is used in many calcium supplements, from inexpensive antacids to expensive coral and marine algae calcium brands. Earlier research in the calcium field has shown that calcium carbonate is absorbed the same as calcium citrate and calcium citrate malate, when all are taken with food.*

Calcium carbonate from algae (so-called "algae calcium") has one, unpublished 6-month study available. Participants took algae calcium, strontium, two different levels of bone nutrients and followed a bone-healthy diet and exercise plan. Only one of the two groups showed "improved" bone density. The "improved" group took higher levels of bone nutrients, suggesting that those nutrients may have been more beneficial than the algae calcium. In contrast, participants taking AdvaCAL calcium alone after 4-6 months had impressive increases in bone density in three different studies.without strontium, bone nutrients, exercise or diet changes
