Calcium/Magnesium/Vitamin D/Boron Combination When it comes to strong, healthy bones, the synergistic effect of several vitamins and minerals is important. While calcium is essential for bone formation and maintenance, more and more studies are showing the importance of magnesium for bone mineral density (BMD). In fact, a total dietary program emphasizing magnesium instead of calcium megadosing is recommended. (See page 6.) Vitamin D is also important for stimulating bone mineralization and the intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphate. Boron is a trace nutrient thought to activate vitamin D. Folic Acid It is widely known that folic acid can lower the high levels of homocystine associated with two of the biggest concerns for postmenopausal women, heart disease and osteoporosis. Folic acid should be taken along with vitamin B6 and B12 which also influence homocystine levels. Women’s Health America, Inc. • 800-558-7046 • | 5
  6. 6. ProCycle® Golds Nutritional Formula Is Clinically Proven A Total Dietary Program Emphasizing Magnesium Instead of Calcium Effect on the Mineral Density of Calcaneous Bone in Postmenopausal Women on Hormonal Therapy Guy E Abraham, MD and Harinder Grewal, MD The use of calcium supplementation for the management of primary postmenopausal osteoporosis (PPMO) has increased significantly in the past few years. A review of the published data does not support calcium megadosing during postmenopause. Controlled studies showed no significant effect of calcium intake on mineral density of trabecular bone and a slight effect on cortical bone. Since PPMS is predominantly due to demineralization of trabecular bone, there is no justification for calcium megadosing in postmenopausal women. Soft tissue calcification is a serious risk factor during calcium megadoisng under certain conditions.
