Why Omega-3 is Important to take with Calcium

Research now shows that bone health is improved when you take both a good calcium supplement with all the right cofactors, and a good Omega 3 supplement.

A good calcium supplement is made from plant sourced whole food red marine algae. This algae is harvested from pristine waters off the coast of Iceland, and is very high in immediately absorbable calcium that your body can use right away, from a plant source, not from chalk.

It is also important that your calcium supplement contains adequate amounts of D3 and K2 to direct the calcium to your bones.

However, Omega 3 EPA and DHA have been shown to reduce bone loss by tuning down the inflammatory signalling that tiggers excessive bone loss, and ultimately osteoporosis! It has been shown that anything that promotes chronic, low-grade inflammation activates your osteoclast cells: specialized cells that break down your bones. EPA and DHA counter this inflammation in many ways. EPA and DHA use enzymes to produce anti-inflammatory compounds: resolvins and protectins. The aptly named resolvins resolve the inflammatory process. And the protectins protect you from chronic inflammations’ harmful, bone-removing effects.

What’s more, EPA and DHA increase the production of bone-building cells, inviting them in and giving them enough time to lay down new bone.

A good calcium supplement, a well made omega 3 supplement, as well as a healthy diet and exercise, are all vitally important for your healthy bones.
