Calcium Collagen Combination Benefits
There are 2 important reasons why you should use a calcium collagen combination supplement. Let’s take a look at all the benefits.
Osteoporosis & Osteopenia, also known as the “silent epidemic” there are usually no visible symptoms.
Bone is a living substance comprised of a hard outer shell (Calcium) and spongy inner tissue matrix (Collagen). The entire skeleton is replaced approximately every seven years.
1 in every 3 women and 1 in every 5 men in South Africa will develop osteoporosis at some time in their life. This is a serious systemic disease-causing your bone to lose density, strength and flexibility. This can result in serious and life-changing bone fractures in especially the spine, hip and wrists. These fractures can result in extreme pain, immobility and in some cases even death.
Prevention and treatment include doing regular exercises, taking calcium, vitamin D, vitamin K2 and other important minerals and vitamins as well as other osteoporosis medications, if needed.

- 500 mg Calcium per serving – Calcium is a mineral that is necessary for life.
In addition to building bones and keeping them healthy, calcium helps our blood clot, nerves send messages and muscles contract. About 99 percent of the calcium in our bodies is in our bones and teeth. Each day, we lose calcium through our skin, nails, hair, sweat, urine and faeces, but our bodies cannot produce new calcium.
That’s why it’s important to try to get calcium from the food we eat. When we don’t get enough calcium for our body’s needs, it is taken from our bones, resulting in bone loss.
- 4 600 mg Bio-Active Collagen Peptides (as Peptan) per serving
Collagen makes up 90% of the organic matrix of bone. Type I collagen fibres twist around each other in a triple helix and become the scaffold upon which minerals are deposited.
Collagen peptides have been shown to stimulate the production of collagen by bone cells, leading to higher levels of new bone tissue formation. Collagen is the matrix upon which calcium is deposited and is also responsible for the flexibility of bone. Peptan has in addition been scientifically proven to promote bone mass density and increase bone strength in in-vivo studies.
It is recommended to use the following products in combination with your CalciCol supplementation:
