New Technology Increases Calcium Absorption, Retention Rates

February 21, 2011: 12:14 PM EST
Israeli researchers have developed a technology that creates a stable form of calcium carbonate with higher biological absorption and retention rates than current dietary calcium supplements. An important mineral for the human body, calcium contributes to bone mass and cardiovascular health. The researchers used a new technology inspired by crustaceans to stabilize synthetic amorphous calcium carbonate that consists of unstable nanoparticles. In experiments performed on lab animals, absorption and retention rates were 40 percent higher in blood and 30 percent higher in bone, compared to other calcium sources.
