CALCIOBASE

What it is

Calciobase is a calcium-based food supplement with sweetener, which provides calcium in its bioactive form calcium-citrate.

Why calcium is important

Calcium is a mineral involved in many of your organs’ functions and is mainly stored in the bone, where it is used for the preservation of it’s anatomical structure, and in the muscle, where it guarantees its regular contracting function.

Why take Calciobase

Although the best way to maintain calcium levels within normal range is through a balanced and adequate diet, you may not always be getting the right calcium intake from your food: when that happens, Calciobase can help you boost your daily dietary calcium intake.

How much calcium do we need on a daily basis?

According to Institute Of Medicine (IOM) Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs; covering requirements of 97.5% of the population) for calcium range from 700 to 1300 mg/d for lifestage groups at least 1 yr of age, with higher requirements during periods of growth such as during adolescence, or during older age.

Who is Calciobase for

Calciobase is useful to anyone who needs to integrate shortage of dietary calcium caused by eating habits, lifestyle, or other factors influencing the calcium homoestasis. Calciobase may also be useful to women in post-menopause, elderly, and people who have an increased calcium requirement (1,2).


What it looks like

Calciobase is a white cherry-flavoured solution, packaged in a pre-dosed slim pocketsize stick packs.

How to take Calciobase

Pour the contents of the wrapper directly in your mouth.

How much Calciobase to take

Take 1 or 2 stick packs per day, based on need. Do not exceed the suggested dose. Before using Calciobase for other purposes than those listed herein, consult your physician.
In the event you change to different dosage, consider that each Calciobase stick pack contains10 ml of product, providing 500 mg of calcium. So, for example, if you needed to take 1000 mg of calcium a day, you would take two 500 mg stick packs per day at different times of the day. This increases the absorption of calcium, as daily dosage is broken down in several administrations throughout the day (3,4).

When to take Calciobase

Calciobase can be taken before or during meals. This is due to the fact calcium citrate is absorbed with either a full or empty stomach and is not influenced by the acid environment of gastric secretions (5,6).

Store Calciobase in a cool and dry space kept away from direct light or exposure to heat. The expiration date on the stick packs refers to the unopened stick pack stored appropriately without tampering. Do not dispose of in the environment after use.
