CalciAIM contains calcium lactate, calcium gluconate and calcium carbonate.
•Calcium lactate is a soluble form of calcium that is bioavailable throughout the entire digestive tract.
•Calcium gluconate is a highly soluble form of calcium that inhibits kidney stone formation and stimulates bifidobacteria in the intestine, which enhances the absorption of calcium.
•Calcium carbonate has been found to reduce the reoccurrence of colon cancer in animal studies
The Physician’s Desk Reference states: “The average person can only absorb 20% of calcium from tablets and 30% from capsules. Solubilized in a beverage, calcium powder provides approximately 98% of its bioavailable elemental calcium to the body.”
By combining calcium lactate, gluconate or carbonate with water and acids we create ionic calcium.
•Ca++ = ionic calcium
•Ionic calcium is a calcium ion with two additional electrons
Only when calcium is in its ionic form can it be properly absorbed by the body
CalciAIM can also Alkalize
•Potential Renal Acid Load, or PRAL.
– It uses a formula to convert the protein and select minerals of a food into a PRAL value.
– Acidifying foods have a positive PRAL value and alkalizing foods have a negative PRAL value.
– Higher protein and phosphorous contributes to increased acid in the blood. – – – Higher potassium, magnesium and calcium result in decreased acid in the blood.
Q: Can I take other products in conjunction with CalciAIM?
A: Yes. CalciAIM can be mixed with all AIM products. The vitamin K1 content in BarleyLife and LeafGreens complements CalciAIM and may lessen the risks associated with calcium deficiency. Combining CalciAIM with Veggie D Capsules significant about of vitamin D. CalciAIM and Peak Endurance taste great when mixed together. Although CalciAIM is mildly acidic, it can be mixed with BarleyLife because the combination of both products is less acidic than your stomach. High-fiber beverages like Herbal Fiberblend will slow the rate of calcium absorption, but both products will still provide benefits.
Q: Is there anyone who should not use CalciAIM?
A: This product is not recommended for those under the age of 4 and those on calcium-restricted diets based on heart disease medications. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if pregnant, nursing, or taking medications.
