SILVIA OSTEO PLUS with TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE of ALTA CARE Laboratoires, Paris is especially recommended for adolescents and women above the age of 50 and those who do not consume dairy products. It is a source of calcium and phosphorus.
Healthy bones store about 99% of the body’s calcium; the rest is used throughout the body for other vital functions. Bones also house about 85% of the body’s phosphorous and 50% of the body’s total sodium and magnesium.
Calcium is one of the most important minerals in the body, not only for bone health but for other physiological functions, including nerve transmission, blood clotting, muscle growth and contraction, heart function, hormone function, and metabolism.
Phosphorus is the second most important mineral. It is a mineral that makes up 1% of a person's total body weight. It is present in every cell of the body, but most of the phosphorus in the body is found in the bones and teeth. The main function of phosphorus is in the formation of bones and teeth. It also plays an important role in the body's utilization of carbohydrates and fats and in the synthesis of protein for the growth, maintenance, and repair of cells and tissues. It is also crucial for the production of ATP, a molecule the body uses to store energy. Phosphorus works with the B vitamins. It also assists in the contraction of muscles, in the functioning of kidneys, in maintaining the regularity of the heartbeat, and in nerve conduction.
Clients in pharmacies have 52 CALCIUM SALTS to choose from, too long a list to quote. What is important is the ratio between calcium and phosphorous. For this reason Alta Care Laboratoires chose TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE to produce SIVIA OSTEO, since calcium is the most important mineral in bones and phosphorus the second most important mineral in bones. Tricalcium phosphate also has the advantage that it is highly available because tricalcium phosphate does not cake as other calcium compounds do.
Alta Care Laboratoires would like to emphasize the importance of choosing SILVIA OSTEO PLUS because of the presence of TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, in other words, the two most important minerals in the body, so vital for anyone’s well-being.
