BONE TONIC TABLET
This dietary supplement is very beneficial for strengthening bones, teeth, hair and nails. Calcium: most abundant mineral found in the body. Its main role is construction and maintenance of bones, teeth, and enzyme activity. Magnesium: this mineral contributes to the formation of bone crystals. Zinc: It contributes to the health of skin, hair and bone. Vitamin D: It contributes to intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus. In the absence of this vitamin, absorption of calcium is not done properly.
No preservatives, flavors or gluten.
This product is merely a dietary - food supplement and is not intended for diagnosis, prevention or treatment of disease.
The benefits of Bone Tonic tablets:
- Contains calcium to the amount of 400 mg plus Vitamin D3.
- Contains magnesium and zinc.
- Zinc in gluconate formulation offers suitable absorption and better digestive tolerance.
The role of calcium:
• Adjusts the heart rate.
• Reduces insomnia.
• Contributes to iron metabolism in the body.
• Plays a fundamental role in regulating the nervous system of the body especially in the stimulus transmission.
• Calcium strengthens the bones. Adequate calcium should be present in adolescents’ food before maturity to render a good bone density and prevent osteoporosis resulted from aging.
• Essential for muscle function and without calcium no movement is possible.
• Transmission of nerve messages is mediated by calcium ion.
• Calcium is involved in the blood coagulation process.
Calcium deficiency symptoms in the body
Calcium deficiency in children appear as rachitism, osteomalacia in middle-aged adults, and osteoporosis in adults. These ailments also appear in vitamin D deficiency, so if you want to have strong bones, it is better to be careful about taking vitamin D. Severe deficiency of calcium will cause a severe contraction of the muscles similar to tetanus which appears initially as muscles cramps. Of course, this is rare and mostly the lack of calcium can cause osteoporosis in later years and to prevent it, we should think about it in adolescence ages.
Calcium is also wasted through the skin. Too much activity at high temperature and high skin transpiration increase calcium excretion through the skin. Because of the effects of aging, we will face bone pain, easy bone fracture and late bone healing. The amount of daily calcium requirement is 800 to 1200 mg. When calcium intake from food is not enough, the body balance system acts in order to keep the amount of calcium in the blood plasma but the bone mineral reserves will be reduced. These actions take place by regulating the hormone secreted from the parathyroid gland ( calcitonin ) which is a derivative of vitamin D ( parathyroid hormone derived from vitamin a D ). In kids and adolescents, the calcium exchange balance is positive in order to increase the bone mass but in adults and elderly people the bone mineral materials loss will gradually increase and calcium balance will inevitably turn to negative.
Loss of the ingredients of bone with aging is a physiological and common fact. This situation starts from the age of 25 to 30 years and its rate is approximately 1% to 5% per year. Of course, in women, it may reach 3% to 4% in the years after menopause. If the calcium reduction goes beyond a threshold, osteoporosis will result. Osteoporosis causes many problems particularly for older people and exposes them to a variety of bone fractures.
The role of vitamin D3 :
Vitamin D3 or calciferol is one of the most necessary vitamins of the body, and its function is similar to the steroid hormones. The greatest impact of this vitamin is on the bones and it does this with more absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the intestine.
Vitamins are divided in two categories: water - soluble and fat - soluble. Vitamin D, along with vitamins A, E, KK is a fat-soluble vitamin.
The structure of vitamin D3 is somewhat different than other vitamins and in fact, it is made of steroid hormones in the body and its deficiency in the body increases the likelihood of diseases related to the steroid hormones. This is one the most important vitamin necessary for the body. Inside the body, it consists of two types of D2و D3 and in the body, type D3 is more important with better performance and acts similar to steroid hormones.
The greatest impact of this vitamin is on the bones and it does this with more absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the intestine. Moreover, it balances calcium and phosphorus in bones. Bowing of the legs of children, osteoporosis in adulthood, an increase of autoimmune diseases (body against itself), etc. are diseases that have a direct or indirect relationship with the presence of this vitamin in the body. Its indirect role is increasing the immune system power and confronting autoimmune diseases.
The role of magnesium:
The presence of minerals in the human body is truly essential. These salts and minerals can be found in many of our foods, for example, magnesium is one of these materials that is essential for the body because of its direct role in the absorption of calcium.
This element plays a vital role in maintaining healthy bones and teeth. This means that it makes up part of the tooth and bones and creates bone strength. Magnesium in the body relieves the nerves and is important and useful for cardiovascular, muscle and kidney health.
Magnesium also induces a better sleep and reduces insomnia.
Magnesium keeps calm the blood circulation in the body, and helps to deal with stress, and maintain mental health in times of depression and emotional changes.
Most important of all, this element activates enzymes, energizes the body and contributes to better bodily functions.
Magnesium is absorbed all along the small intestine. Vitamin D increases its absorption. It is stored in the bones. Magnesium excretion is through the kidneys.
Magnesium deficiency is one of the reasons for the prevalence of neurological disorders, chronic fatigue, back pain, migraine attacks, paresis, decreased appetite, nausea, insomnia, and irregular heartbeat rhythm.
Despite the critical importance of magnesium for the body, sometimes its role in the health of the body is disregard and neglected. Because more than 80 percent of the American people are facing the deficiency of this micronutrient which can lead to impairment of health or even serious illness.
The role of zinc:
It has been observed that zinc concentration in skin and eye is more than other organs in the body. Taking zinc is necessary in burns, surgery, and wound healing of the body. Zinc improves faster wound healing and zinc deficiency postpones wound healing. Especially in diabetics, leg wounds and their infection could even lead to amputation.
Also, zinc consumption has been proven to be effective in the improvement of hair loss and today, zinc deficiency is known to be an important cause of hair loss, which of course must be considered along with other causes of hair loss, such as vitamin deficiency, anemia, etc. Also, white spots on nails is a symptom of zinc deficiency in the body.
The people that engage in regular sport activity as well as pregnant and lactating women need more zinc than other people, and if their zinc intake is not enough, they suffer its deficiency and symptoms. People who smoke a lot during the day need more zinc than other people. Patients who have liver and renal problems and patients with diabetes, need more zinc. When catching infections, the need for zinc is more than other occasions.
- People who do not get enough calcium, zinc, magnesium and vitamin D3 through the diet.
- People who are not exposed to sufficient sunlight.
- Women at menopause.
- Adolescents in the growth years.

Also, oral absorption of calcium with iron may be problematic. The minimum interval between iron and calcium intake must be 3 - 4 hours.
Avoid drinking tea and coffee with this supplement due to reduced absorption of zinc.
In case of taking thiazide diuretic, digoxin and phenitoin, consult your physician or pharmacist.
