Extra protection for your bones!
Calcium is an essential mineral the body needs for strong bones and teeth. In
addition, calcium encourages a strong, steady heartbeat, keeps blood pumping
efficiently and maintains nerves and muscles. In short–calcium pretty much helps
keep your whole body working the way it should!
Your body's entire skeletal system and your teeth are composed of calcium. If your
body isn't getting enough calcium through your diet, it will take what it needs from
your bones to make up for it. Over time, this process can lead to osteoporosis, a
crippling disease that can make bones very fragile and more susceptible to fracture.
As you age, your body stops producing bone and may begin to lose it. To
maximize your peak bone density, make sure you get plenty of calcium,
magnesium and vitamin D now, with Xtra-Cal!
It's never too late to start increasing your calcium intake. For people in their 40s
and 50s, increasing calcium levels can help you maintain the bone you have.
Xtra-Cal offers one of the most concentrated forms of calcium available in a tablet. It
also is formulated with other vitamins and nutrients, including magnesium and
vitamin D, that can promote healthy bones and skeletal health. Three tablets
supply 100 percent of the U.S. Percent Daily Value of calcium intake for men and
women over 40.
- Bone up on calcium: Calcium is essential to the health of bones, teeth and skin,
yet few adults get enough of it in their diets. Three Xtra-Cal tablets a day supply
100 percent of the U.S. Percent Daily Value for calcium intake.
- Ward off weak bones: To help prevent bone weakness and osteoporosis in the
future, make sure you're getting plenty of calcium now. Bone development slows
down around age 30 and bone strength continues to decrease throughout the
rest of your life. Increasing calcium intake is health maintenance for bones and
- Combine with other products: Xtra-Cal can be used in conjunction with the
ShapeWorks Weight Management Programs and Herbalife's entire line of nutritional
products to boost your overall nutrient intake-including calcium.
Did You Know?
More than 28 million Americans are afflicted with osteoporosis. Although mainly
considered a female problem, men are also vulnerable to osteoporosis and should
make sure they consume enough calcium to ward off future bone loss.
Magnesium is a mineral needed by every cell of your body. About half of your
body's magnesium stores are found inside cells of body tissues and organs, and
half are combined with calcium and phosphorus in bone. Only one percent of the
magnesium in your body is found in your blood. Magnesium helps maintain normal
muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, and bones strong. It is also
involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Although magnesium is present
in many foods, such as spinach, nuts, seeds, and some whole grains, it usually
occurs in small amounts. As with most nutrients, daily needs for magnesium cannot
be met from a single food.
