Advacal for Men contains 1000mg of the same special form of calcium (AAACa) long found in regular Advacal. This is the calcium studied by Dr. Fujita, of Japan,
In addition it contains 1000IU of Vitamin D3, long know as necessary for bone building, Magnesium, Vitamin K2 (to make sure that calcium winds up in your bones and not lining your arteries) and what makes this supplement different from regular Advacal, it contains saw palmetto and pumpkin seed extracts. The latter are included for their qualities of prostrate support.
So often the media shows Osteopenia or Osteoporosis as only a woman's problem.
But this is not true. As men age, they too develop bone loss. And if
nothing is done to reverse your thinning bones, you are likely to
experience a fracture - and the prognosis for men who suffer hip
fractures, is not very good. You do not want that. You plan to reverse
your bone loss. It is why you are reading this web site. When Lane
Labs began producing Advacal for Men, they add the additional
ingredients because scientific studies showed their value.
Science References for these additional ingredients: In 2009 a study published in Nutrition Research Practice reported that in a "study of 62 Korean men with an average age of 53, those taking a combination of pumpkin seed and saw palmetto saw significant improvement in prostate health and quality of life.*)Ref: Nutr Res Pract. 2009 Winter; 3(4): 323–327.
If you already have Osteoporosis and are taking medication for it, you should know that Lane Labs states that this supplement can be taken safely with prescription Osteoporosis medications.
And given the extensive research on Advacal, you may find that your bone density increases sufficiently that you will be able to come off your medications. In 2009 the journal Osteoporosis International published a paper that showed that those using Advacal had an impressive increase in bone density of +3.3% each year. Nordin B.E.C. Osteoporosis Int’l (2009) 20:2135-2143
And an earlier study published in the Journal of Bone Mineral Metabolism in 1997 showed that both women and men taking "AAACa (3A Calcium - the technical name for this product) saw significant gains in bone density at 6 months, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years vs. placebo. The average increase after 3 years was +8%. Reference: Fujita et al J Bone Miner. Metab (1997) 15: 223-226
NOTE: The studies noted above were done before Lane Labs introduced some extra ingredients to make this supplement more oriented towards the health needs of older men.
