It’s Never Too Early To Invest In Your Bones


Our skeletons are replaced every seven years. Providing regular supplementary assistance will help keep bones healthy, before it’s too late.

Body Builders
Our bones have a hard outer shell and a spongy bone matrix inside which contains cells that both build healthy bone tissue and remove old, damaged bone tissue. This is known as a bone ‘remodelling’ process. It is vital that this balance between the build-up and removal of bone tissue is maintained for optimal bone health. More importantly, this balance should be maintained throughout your running life. 

Exercise Is Essential
As a runner, we keep our bodies healthy by doing what we love. Exercising, in itself, is a great way to maintain good bone health and to ensure you do not end up with fractures in the hip and spine. Studies have found that calcium can be lost through sweating, which is a normal healthy process.  The thing to remember is that you should be supplementing this loss, especially in order to protect your bones. Research has found that even though you lose calcium after you exercise, you lose less if you ingest a supplement containing calcium and vitamin D.

MenaCal.7 is a calcium supplement with bone-fortifying nutrients vitamin K2 and vitamin D3. This formulation works synergistically to ensure an optimal intake of the three key ingredients for the development and maintenance of strong healthy bones. 

Calcium is also important for stabilising blood pressure, promoting blood clotting, maintaining brain function, promoting insulin sensitivity and even helping your muscles contract. If you don’t eat calcium-containing foods, you can take a calcium supplement to ensure you get your recommended daily allowance of approx. 1000mg-1200mg/day. 


Three Heroes
Ca: Calcium strengthens bones and teeth and gives them structure.

Vitamin K2: Regulates bone remodelling, assists with calcium absorption and prevents the accumulation of calcium in blood vessels.

 Vitamin D3: Inhibits bone resorption, increases the effect of vitamin K and helps with the absorption and urinary loss of calcium.

Fight Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to become porous and more susceptible to fractures, especially of the spine, hip and wrist. It is very common, affecting 1 in 3 women over the age of 50, and 1 in 5 men over the age of 50.There is no cure for Osteoporosis. That is why prevention is as important as treatment. Preventative measures aim to ensure maximum accumulation and reduced loss of bone tissue during your running life.
