Pure Encapsulations +CAL+ with Ipriflavone, 350 count
This broad spectrum combination of vitamins, minerals, and herbs is formulated to aid in the formation and strengthening of the skeletal system. It provides highly bioavailable forms of calcium, a mineral essential not only for the maintenance of the functional integrity of the nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems, but also cell membrane and capillary impermeability.
+CAL+ with Ipriflavone also provides substances which nutritionally support and enhance the absorption of calcium and the incorporation of calcium into bone. It provides nutrients essential to healthy bone structure and formation, the synthesis and strengthening of connective tissue in cartilage and bone, and the formation of elastin.
Ipriflavone, an advanced addition to this formula, is a synthetic derivative of naturally occurring isoflavones. It supports healthy bone maintenance by promoting secretion of the hormone calcitonin, and maintaining healthy osteoclast activity. Ipriflavone also supports type I collagen and the formation of mineralized bone matrix.
Vitamin K enhances bone formation by carboxylating osteocalcin. This enables osteocalcin to bind to calcium and promote healthy bone mineralization. +CAL+ is also enhanced with 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 for optimal bone health.
Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. Rarely, ipriflavone has been associated with epigastric pain, diarrhea, dizziness or lymphocytopenia. Individuals with heart or kidney problems or who experience water retention or swelling should avoid products containing horsetail extract.
Theoretically, ipriflavone could affect the way that the liver breaks down medications metabolized by the cytochrome P450 pathway, altering the effects of these medications and possibly the dose needed for treatment. Horsetail extract may be contra-indicated with diuretic medications. Consult your physician for more information
