Introducing RadiCAL Junior and Adult Chews containing active ingredients

When it comes to bone health the sooner one starts the better. Between the ages of one and 18 years, bones absorb calcium more effectively than at any other time of life because as bones grow and lengthen, the amount of calcium deposited in them increases. For most people the amount of bone tissue in the skeleton, known as bone mass, peaks by their late twenties.

In girls peak bone mass is acquired by age 18, and in boys by age 20. This makes youth the best time for people to invest in their bone health.

Calcium is required by the body to maintain the skeletal system. 99% of the body’s calcium is stored in the bones and teeth where it plays a vital part in building and maintaining bone structure (the remaining 1% resides in the body fluid and cells). The functions of calcium include:*

  • Building bones, both in length and strength
  • Helping bones remain strong by slowing the rate of bone loss with age
  • Helping muscles contract
  • Helping the heart beat
  • Playing a role in normal nerve function, transferring nerve impulses
  • Helping blood clot during bleeding
  • Building healthy teeth in children

While an adequate calcium intake and maximizing bone stores during the time when bone is rapidly deposited provides an important foundation for the future, it may not prevent bone loss later in life. The loss of bone with aging has several causes, including genetic factors, physical inactivity and lower levels of circulating hormones such as oestrogen in women and testosterone in men.

Whatever the situation in our early years, it is never too late to start boosting our calcium intake through improved diet and supplementing calcium and its nutritional counterparts of magnesium, vitamins D and C.

Nativa, which develops and markets a range of quality nutritional and alternative products through national pharmaceutical and retail channels, has added to its existing bone support range of RadiCAL cal/mag complex tablets and RadiCAL Effervescent by introducing RadiCAL Junior Chews and RadiCAL Adult Chewables.

New RadiCAL Junior Chews

Since youth is the best time to invest in bone health, Nativa has introduced RadiCAL Junior Chews for children from three years old, formulated with a daily intake of 400 mg calcium and supporting nutrients vitamin D and maganesium. See nutritional information below. Four tasty flavours – orange, passion fruit, pineapple, strawberry – are in each tub of 60 chews.

  • Vitamin D is used for the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth and helps the body to utilise calcium which is necessary for the normal development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth, helping to absorb calcium into bone.

Usage instructions:

Do not exceed the recommended daily dosage. Not to be given to children younger than 3 years of age due to choking hazard.

  • Folate plays a role in the metabolism of cell division and in the regeneration of blood and cells.
  • Vitamin B6 is used for energy release from protein, carbohydrate and fat and also plays a role in amino acid metabolism and maintaining healthy skin.
  • Vitamin B12 contributes to the health of the nervous system and is involved in the manufacture of red blood cells.

Usage instructions:

Calcium requirements over a lifetime:

Recommended daily allowance per age group:

Age 1 – 8: The amount of calcium deposited in the bones increases as the bones grow and lengthen. Bones absorbs the calcium more effectively than any other time of life. For effective bone growth and development, vitamin D intake is also important. Calcium is required for teeth development and growth and maintenance – primary teeth develop and appear.

Age 9 – 18: The amount of calcium deposited in the bones increases as the bones lengthen. Bones absorbs the calcium more effectively than any other time of life. Calcium is required for maintaining healthy new permanent teeth.

Age 19 – 30: Bone production exceeds bone destruction, therefore it is critical to maintain calcium deposit, especially in women.

Age 30 – 50: Typically, destruction exceeds production – if calcium needs are not met by the diet, your body extracts calcium from bone. Therefore, it is critical to take in enough calcium.

Age 50 – 70: Decrease in oestrogen (menopause) or testosterone causes calcium to be extracted from bone at a higher rate, therefore, it is critical to take in enough calcium.
