Related Technical Questions with the product:
I was taking two Osteoguard tablets a day, for about two months I have switched to Osteoguard ADVANCE tablets and continue to take two tablets. The question that arises is because I saw an article that says that an Osteoguard ADVANCE tablet contains 250 mg of calcium and an Osteoguard tablet contains 500 mg of calcium. I would like to know the exact equivalence that I should take of Osteoguard ADVANCE so that it is equivalent to the two Osteoguard tablets that I took previously.
R/ If you want to reach the calcium level provided by 2 Osteoguard® tablets, you would have to take 4 Osteoguard® Advance. Magnesium intake would double to 500 mg (which is still at an acceptable intake level). However, the dose of vitamin K2 would go from 90 µg to 180 µg, which exceeds the recommended daily dose so we cannot advise you to double the intake of the Osteoguard® Advance product.
Remember that food supplements are not drugs, even though we find them in tablet or capsule forms, but rather necessary nutrients, which in many cases we cannot adequately acquire from a regular diet, but since they are concentrated healthy substances, They collaborate optimally completing our individual nutritional requirements and that intervene in numerous chemical processes in the body, helping in many health disorders. The dose should be as indicated on the product label or directed by a health professional who handles the case in a personalized way.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Information about vitamin D3" title_tag="h2"]
I wanted to receive information about vitamin D3. Especially how to take it and if you can maintain a very long-term treatment or you have to take breaks since it is fat-soluble.
R / LAMBERTS® offer 3 presentations of vitamin D with different potencies in its natural form, according to each individual need: 400 IU (10μg), 1000 IU (25μg) and 4000 IU (100μg). Vitamin D can also be found in the multi-nutrient formulas of LAMBERTS® and in products such as: Vitamin D3+K2, Osteoguard®, Chewable Calcium and Cold Liver Oil.
This vitamin, like other fat-soluble nutrients, can be measured in Micrograms (μg) or in International Units (IU). 1 IU of vitamin D = 0.025 μg of colecalciferol.
Vitamin D is called “the sun’s vitamin”. It is essential for bone health and can slow the progression of osteoporosis, strengthen the immune system and help prevent some diseases. There are numerous studies on vitamin D that support the argument that we should all monitor our intake of vitamin D. What’s more, the body’s ability to produce vitamin D decreases with age, so vitamin D deficiencies are common in people greater.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be ingested with food or manufactured by the body as a result of the incidence of sunlight on our skin. People with little exposure to sunlight often decide to supplement their diet with an extra supply of vitamin D. It is also important for the absorption and normal use of calcium and phosphorus, and contributes to the process of cell division.
Without enough vitamin D, the body cannot absorb calcium from food or supplements. When blood calcium levels are low, the body will remove calcium from the bones into the blood to supply the muscles (especially the heart), and the nerves with the amount they need. Over time, this reassignment of calcium leads to a loss of bone mass.
Therefore vitamin D contributes to reduce the risk of falls related to postural instability and muscle weakness. Falls are a risk factor for bone fractures in men and women from 60 years and this benefit is achieved with a dose of 20 μg daily. Today scientists continue to discover more functions of vitamin D and health professionals recommend their intake, monitoring the appropriate levels by analytics.
Update December 2020: LAMBERTS® offers 7 presentations of vitamin D3.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Which of our products are alkalizing?" title_tag="h2"]
