Red algae: a calcium-rich plant

De Rode alg (Lithothamnium calcareum)

What is the Red Algae?

In the clean waters off the coast of Iceland, a special calcium-rich plant grows: the Red alga. The official species name of this plant is Lithothamnium calcareum (sometimes also written as Lithothamnion calcareum ). The red algae has the special property that it absorbs minerals from the sea and stores them in its tissues. This mainly concerns Calcium . But also Magnesium , Copper , Iodine, Potassium, Selenium, Iron, Manganese, Zink and dozens of other so-called ‘trace elements’ can be found in the Red algae. Red algae is the right place for you to supplement your minerals!

Calcium: good for the maintenance of strong bones

Calcium (lime) is an important component of the bones. As the years go by, the amount of calcium in the bones gradually decreases: we then speak of bone decalcification. Often you don’t feel it at all. The bones become more brittle and eventually even fragile: a broken hip is therefore relatively common in the elderly. It is therefore important that sufficient Calcium is used in the daily diet to keep the bones strong into old age .

Why Calcium from the sea?

There are many sources in nature for Calcium. For example, Calcium can be extracted from rock. Nevertheless, Synofit Bone Complex chooses Calcium from the Red algae from Aquamin. Why?

  • Several scientific studies have been published of the Red algae (Aquamin F), which show that use of this plant is actually good for the maintenance of strong bones (source: see below).
  • From the Red algae it concerns a Calcium of vegetable origin, not from rock. This makes this Calcium easily absorbable in the body.

This is what the mineralized Red Algae looks like

  • Not only Calcium is present in the Red algae, but also many other trace elements . This provides extra nutrients in addition to the Calcium. For example Magnesium, Copper, Iodine, Potassium, Selenium, Iron, Manganese and Zink.

Synofit Calcium Plus: fluid formula for maintaining strong bones

Synofit Calcium Plus is a unique liquid formula for the bones, in which Synofit has very consciously chosen for the Red algae as the source for the Calcium. Synofit Calcium Plus contains per capsule 570 mg Red algae, in which no less than 192.5 mg Calcium is present. This Calcium is highly absorbable, which is further facilitated by the liquid form of the capsule content.
Synofit Calcium Plus also contains Vitamin D3, which plays a role in the Calcium balance , and Vitamin K2, which aids in the actual absorption of Calcium in the bone tissue . Furthermore Magnesium, Zink and Manganese used in this total formula for the bones: Magnesium , Zinc and Manganese have a role in the bone production and Magnesium contributes also contributes to the reduction of fatigue.

Keep moving with Synofit!

Regular exercise is not only important for your joints, but also for your bones . There are studies that show that well-dosed exercise is just as important for bone structure as the use of supplements. Our advice is, in addition to using Synofit Calcium Plus, to give your bones a double pleasure by continuing to exercise sufficiently .
Synofit Calcium Plus therefore contains some B vitamins: Vitamine B2, Vitamin B3 en Vitamin B6 contribute to the reduction of fatigue. Together with the Copper also present in Synofit Calcium Plus, they also activate the natural energy in the body. Because for movement energy is necessary .

Frequently asked questions about Calcium

Why should I take a Calcium supplement?

Calcium is required to maintain strong bones . It plays a role in the bone creation . Our product Synofit Calcium Plus is completely focused on this: it is a liquid formula, packed in capsules, containing everything for the bones . In one product, so you don’t lose it Magnesium, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2 need to use with it. Furthermore, Calcium contributes to the proper course of blood clotting , to the process of cell renewal, to a favorable functioning of the heart muscle, to a normal energy metabolism and to a normal stimulus transfer in the nerves. Finally, Calcium is necessary for the teeth and helps with digestion.

Why the Red alga?

Calcium from Aquamin F is extensively supported by several < strong> scientific studies . These studies show that Calcium from the Red Algae is very good for the maintenance of strong bones. A technical advantage is that Calcium from the Red algae is extra easy to absorb . Much better than with Calcium from rock. Finally, the Red algae does not only contain Calcium, but also all kinds of other useful nutrients . Such as Magnesium, Copper, Iodine, Potassium, Selenium, Iron, Manganese and Zinc.

& nbsp;

What should I pay attention to when choosing a product with Calcium?

A product containing only Calcium is hardly or not at all absorbed into the body. It is important that a combination is always made with Vitamin D3, because that contributes to the normal absorption of Calcium . Then you can also Vitamin K2 not missing: this ensures the absorption of minerals, such as Calcium, in the bone tissue . It is therefore wise to use a product that contains all of this immediately, in the right quantities. In Synofit Bone Complex is that the case. In addition to Calcium, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2, it also concerns Magnesium, Zink and Manganese. All these ingredients together are strong for strong bones.
