Diets high in animal and grain proteins contribute to the body’s acid load. In response to the overproduction of acid, buffering elements stored in and around bone, including calcium and magnesium, are dissolved, while bone cell function and bone mineralization can become impaired. These bone minerals play a critical role in electrolyte metabolism, which is important for maintaining a wide range of physiological functions. Magnesium, like calcium, also promotes healthy bone metabolism. In addition to providing these essential bone matrix minerals, Tri-Alkali offers vitamin D to promote intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption, and reduce urinary calcium loss – essential mechanisms for maintaining proper calcium levels in the body and for healthy bone composition. Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet, and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.
