How does calcium support health?

Calcium is essential to the normal transmission of nerve impulses.1 Calcium ions mediate many different important cellular processes throughout the body including cells of the immune system, liver, nerves, blood vessels, and endocrine system.2,3 Calcium also affects the processing of fats in the body, may reduce absorption of fats (lipids) by the intestines4,5,6 and can modulate gallbladder absorption.7

Calcium provides many additional benefits for women. Menopausal and post-menopausal women are at increased risk for bone loss that often leads to osteoporosis.8 Research suggests that women who take in adequate amounts of calcium throughout their lives greatly reduce their risk of excessive bone loss later in life.9 Calcium intake (at 1,000-1,200 milligrams per day for adults) from food and supplementation may support proper muscle function.10 For women, adequate calcium intake may also reduce monthly discomfort by helping to maintain the normal functioning of parathyroid hormone.11*

How does phosphorus support health?

Phosphorus is involved in several biological processes, including bone mineralization, energy production, and cell signaling.12 The kidneys and intestine regulate the concentration of phosphorus, which is required by almost every cell in the body for critical processes such as cell signaling, nucleic acid synthesis, maintaining energy balance, formation of cell membranes, and bone formation.13,14*

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.*
