NOW® Bone Meal Powder—An excellent source of calcium

NOW® Bone Meal Powder is derived from cattle raised in the United States. Bone meal powder is an excellent source of calcium. Calcium in bone meal occurs as a calcium phosphate compound known as hydroxyapatite.

Adequate calcium throughout life, as part of a well balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

What is bone meal powder?

Bone meal powder is a by-product of the animal rendering industry. It’s made from bones that are first steam-stripped of any remaining meat or connective tissue, then ground into a fine powder. The powder is rich in minerals, including calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. It also contains small amounts of other nutrients such as sodium, potassium, and Iron.

Why is calcium important?

Calcium is essential for human health. It’s needed for the development and maintenance of bones and teeth, and it plays a role in muscle contraction, blood clotting, and nerve function. Most people are aware that calcium is important for bones, but what many don’t know is that it’s also vital for muscle function. Calcium helps muscles contract and relax, which is why it’s essential for things like heart function and blood pressure regulation.

How much calcium do I need?

The amount of calcium you need depends on your age and gender. Adults 19-50 years old need 1,000 mg of calcium per day, while women 51+ and men 71+ need 1,200 mg per day. Pregnant and breastfeeding women have an increased need for calcium; they should aim for 1,300 mg per day. You can get calcium from food sources or supplements; both options have their pros and cons.

Food sources of calcium include dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt; leafy green vegetables like kale and spinach; fish with edible bones like sardines; tofu; almonds; and fortified foods like cereal and orange juice. The main advantage of getting your calcium from food is that you’ll also get other important nutrients like vitamin D (which helps with calcium absorption), protein, phosphorus, and magnesium. However, it can be difficult to meet your daily needs through diet alone—this is where supplements come in handy.

Supplements provide a convenient way to increase your intake of essential nutrients like calcium without having to change your diet too much. However, it’s important to choose a supplement that’s right for you; not all supplements are created equal! When choosing a supplement, look for one that contains vitamin D (to help with absorption), isn’t too high in sodium (which can cause Hypertension), and doesn’t have any added sugars or artificial flavors/colors. NOW® Bone Meal Powder fits all these criteria—it contains vitamin D3 for absorption, has no added sugars or artificial flavors/colors, and has only 40 mg of sodium per serving (about 2% of the Daily Value). Plus, it’s affordable and easy to find!

If you’re looking for an easy way to get more calcium in your diet, look no further than NOW® Bone Meal Powder!
