MCHA is raw bone prepared by a special low temperature process to preserve the protein content. The calcium thus provided is in an extremely bioavailable form. In addition, M.C.H.C. Caps may contain trace amounts of other beneficial minerals (such as phosphorus) that are naturally-occurring.‡
M.C.H.C. Caps has added boron. The body requires boron for healthy metabolism and is utilized in bone building. Some studies have shown that boron has mineral-conserving and hormone supporting actions that are helpful in women with low magnesium intake. Vitamin D3 is added to support bone health since studies show that vitamin D mobilizes calcium and phosphorus, promotes intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphates, and increases kidney absorption of calcium of phosphorus allowing for higher blood levels of those minerals for use in bone building.‡
Warning: If you are pregnant or lactating woman, have any health conditions, or are taking any medication, make sure to consult your healthcare provider prior to use.
