Effecti-CAL is a scientifically blended multi-element supplement which is rich in calcium acetate, and fortified with an optimal amount of magnesium, zinc, and vitamin
Pre-clinically, this calcium acetate formula has been shown to significantly reduce the rate of bone loss. Targeting the $167 million (Nutrition Business Journal,
2007) calcium ingredient market in the United States alone, Effecti-CAL is challenging the calcium absorption of its competitors. Studies show that not all calcium supplements
are the same. There are two major forms of calcium in the market: carbonate and citrate. Calcium carbonate, the most popular form, is highly insoluble in the intestine; therefore, the percentage
available for absorption is very low. Calcium citrate is a soluble form of calcium; however, its absorption efficiency is contentious among research groups. One reason could be that calcium citrate
is not that soluble in the intestine.
Consuming excessive amounts of calcium has been linked to severe side effects such as heart problems and kidney stones. Residual calcium not absorbed by the body can lead to uncomfortable stomach
upset, gas and constipation. Effecti-CAL absorbs readily reducing these side effects and the need for multiple doses throughout the day. Additionally, research has shown
that calcium alone is not efficient in promoting bone health. For optimal results, elements such as magnesium and zinc are important to maximize the effects of calcium and minimize its side
