Women lose an average of 15% of their bone mass during menopause, therefore calcium supplementation is essential. Calcium glycinate is the most bioavailable and most soluble form of supplemental calcium. It is 180% better absorbed than calcium citrate and 21% better absorbed than calcium citrate-malate. Vitamin D3 is required for optimal absorption of calcium. Boron plays an important role in mineral metabolism, by preventing calcium loss and bone demineralisation.
