Cal-Amo® supports normal cellular pH.*

  • Contains compounds that are useful in supporting proper acid/alkaline balance
  • Supports respiratory function*
How does Cal-Amo help support proper acid/alkaline balance?

Ammonium chloride is converted by the liver into urea.1 This reaction liberates hydrochloric acid, which immediately reacts with buffers in body fluids to acidify tissues.2 Proper pH balance in body fluids enhances respiratory function.3*

How does the calcium in Cal-Amo support health?

Among many other important functions, calcium plays a role in immune system efficiency. While the human body requires calcium daily for many different reasons, nutritional surveys suggest that Americans could use supplemental calcium to make up for dietary shortfalls.4*

How does the magnesium in Cal-Amo support health?

White blood cells contain small amounts of magnesium, which plays a significant role in human metabolism. Nutritional survey results report that while magnesium deficiency is rare, Americans could use supplemental magnesium to make up for dietary shortfalls. Magnesium and calcium act synergistically to regulate apoptosis (cell death).6*

Whole Food Nutrient Solutions

Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.

Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*
