SHIFT™ Calcium Extra is a complete supplement for bone and bone building. The product contains both calcium malate and calcium bisglycinate which are effectively absorbed and utilized in the body. Calcium alone is not enough to build bone tissue and strengthen the skeleton, therefore SHIFT ™ Calcium Extra also contains boron, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 which contribute to increased absorption and utilization.

Calcium and bones
The human body consists of 206 bones, which are under constant re-building and degradation. As we get older, the various bones in the body slowly degrades. During and after menopause, bone loss in women often increases quite significantly due to a low estrogen production. If the bone tissue is weakened by more than 25 percent, it is defined as osteoporosis. 99 percent of the body’s calcium is found in bone tissue, and calcium is the most important building block for developing and maintaining a strong bone structure.
Calcium malate is a patented and documented magnesium compound developed by the world’s leading manufacturer of effective absorbing minerals, Albion Minerals Inc. In calcium malate, the calcium compound is bound to malic acid, resulting in a highly bioavailable calcium raw material. An intake of calcium malate results in minimal digestive side effects.
Calcium bisglycinate-chelate is a patented and documented amino acid chelate produced by Albion Minerals Inc. The calcium is bound to two amino acids of glycine, forming a dipeptide. The dipeptide structure protects the calcium molecule from breaking down while passing through the digestive tract, where it is exposed to other food components and different pH.
When reaching the small intestine, the calcium is absorbed through the intestinal wall and into the blood stream via the active transport system for amino acids. Hence, the calcium bisglycinate-chelate is a highly bioavailable form of calcium. An intake of calcium bisglycinate-chelate also results in minimal digestive side effects.
Calcium alone is not enough
To build strong bones, calcium alone is not enough. Vitamin K2, vitamin D and boron are among important nutrients needed for our bones. In SHIFT™ Calcium Extra, Vitamin K2-MenaQ7 is added, and can contribute to bone health by increasing the bone mineral density and bone quality.
Vitashine vegan vitamin D is added to promote the absorption of calcium from the intestine, thereby increasing the bioavailability of calcium in the body. Vitamin D also helps to transport calcium to the bones and mineralize the calcium to bone tissue. Without sufficient vitamin D3, bone tissue will become thin and soft.
Boron is an element that appear to affect how calcium and magnesium act in relation to the formation of new bone tissue, and in addition helps to keep calcium in place in the bone tissue. The boric acid is bound to glycine for better uptake, and is manufactured by Albion Laboratories Inc.
Approved by the Vegan Society
The product is approved by Vegan Society and can be safely used by vegans.
