ADVANCE RESEARCH NCI Calcium Orotate 100 CAPSULES
Calcium Orotate is one of Dr. Hans Nieper’s formulas
Calcium Orotate is a premier calcium supplement for the discriminating consumer. Calcium orotate is a mineral transporter where calcium is bound to orotic acid, a natural component of whey. Calcium orotate penetrates the entire cellular membrane and delivers the calcium to the INTRACELLULAR structures (mitochondria, and other organelles). This compound is attracted to bone, cartilage, liver, brain and the circulatory system where the molecule can enter the cells of these tissues releasing calcium inside the cell avoiding the hypercalcemia common to other calcium supplements.
How do mineral transport substances work? Mineral transporters release mineral ions at a site where we want it to be released. Dr. Hans Nieper believed that mineral transporters can write an address on the mineral — and have it go to selective organs to activate enzymes, or for restoring tissue structure. Calcium orotate along with calcium arginate are ideal mineral supplements in conditions connected with decalcification and injury of bones and joints, such as bone fractures, cartilage degeneration, spinal pain, muscle cramps, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Dr. Nieper believed that the use of these active mineral transporters could be beneficial in improving calcium metabolism in these conditions.

Calcium is found in many multivitamin-mineral supplements, though the amount varies by product. Dietary supplements that contain only calcium or calcium with other nutrients such as vitamin D are also available. Check the Supplement Facts label to determine the amount of calcium provided.
The two main forms of calcium dietary supplements are carbonate and citrate. Calcium carbonate is inexpensive, but is absorbed best when taken with food. Some over-the-counter antacid products, such as Tums® and Rolaids®, contain calcium carbonate. Each pill or chew provides 200–400 mg of calcium. Calcium citrate, a more expensive form of the supplement, is absorbed well on an empty or a full stomach. In addition, people with low levels of stomach acid (a condition more common in people older than 50) absorb calcium citrate more easily than calcium carbonate. Other forms of calcium in supplements and fortified foods include gluconate, lactate, and phosphate.
Calcium absorption is best when a person consumes no more than 500 mg at one time. So a person who takes 1,000 mg/day of calcium from supplements, for example, should split the dose rather than take it all at once.
Calcium supplements may cause gas, bloating, and constipation in some people. If any of these symptoms occur, try spreading out the calcium dose throughout the day, taking the supplement with meals, or changing the supplement brand or calcium form you take.
