Calcifood® supports calcium absorption.*

  • Helps the body build strong, healthy bones
  • Adequate calcium as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life.*
How does Calcifood help support bones?

Approximately 99 percent of the body’s total calcium store resides in the bones.1 While bone acts as a calcium depot for the body, the skeleton is an active and dynamic player in whole body health, especially as we age.2 During periods of rapid growth, such as infancy and adolescence, new bone formation occurs as calcium deposition is greater than resorption of calcium, resulting in peak bone density around age 30. In older adults, calcium resorption outpaces deposition, especially in postmenopausal women.3 The veal bone whole food ingredient in Calcifood contributes complex vital nutrition to help keep bones healthy.*

How does calcium support optimal health?

A great percentage of the population fails to acquire adequate amounts of calcium from the daily diet.4 Calcifood contains ingredients sourced from whole foods like carrot, defatted wheat germ, dates, rice bran, veal bone, and bovine bone for their nutritional complexity and support of calcium absorption and use by the body. Calcium is essential for bones as a component of bone mineralization and for the body in general because bones are calcium depots for bodywide use.5 Calcium is an essential component of bone health, and inadequate intake of calcium may change bone mineral density, particularly in older adults.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.*
