Calcium supplementation and bone mineral density in females from childhood to young adulthood: a randomized controlled trial.
Matkovic V, et al. (2005) Am J Clin Nutr. 81(1):175-88.
This study evaluated the long-term effects of calcium supplementation on bone accretion among females from childhood to young adulthood. Multivariate analyses of the primary outcomes indicated that calcium-supplementation effects vary over time. Follow-up univariate analyses indicated that all primary outcomes were significantly larger in the supplemented group than in the placebo group at the year 4 endpoint. However, at the year 7 endpoint, this effect vanished for TBBMD and distal radius BMD. Longitudinal models for TBBMD and proximal radius BMD, according to the time since menarche, showed a highly significant effect of supplementation during the pubertal growth spurt and a diminishing effect thereafter. Post hoc stratifications by compliance-adjusted total calcium intake and by final stature or metacarpal total cross-sectional area showed that calcium effects depend on compliance and body frame.
Conclusions: Calcium supplementation significantly influenced bone accretion in young females during the pubertal growth spurt. By young adulthood, significant effects remained at metacarpals and at the forearm of tall persons, which indicated that the calcium requirement for growth is associated with skeletal size. These results may be important for both primary prevention of osteoporosis and prevention of bone fragility fractures during growth.
Effect of calcium and vitamin D supplementation on bone density in men and women 65 years of age or older
Dawson-Hughes B, et al. (1997) N Engl J Med. 337(10):670-6.
Inadequate dietary intake of calcium and vitamin D may contribute to the high prevalence of osteoporosis among older persons. METHODS: We studied the effects of three years of dietary supplementation with calcium and vitamin D on bone mineral density, biochemical measures of bone metabolism, and the incidence of nonvertebral fractures in 176 men and 213 women 65 years of age or older who were living at home. They received either 500 mg of calcium plus 700 IU of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) per day or placebo. Bone mineral density was measured by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry, blood and urine were analyzed every six months, and cases of nonvertebral fracture were ascertained by means of interviews and verified with use of hospital records. The difference between the calcium-vitamin D and placebo groups was significant at all skeletal sites after one year, but it was significant only for total-body bone mineral density in the second and third years. Of 37 subjects who had nonvertebral fractures, 26 were in the placebo group and 11 were in the calcium-vitamin D group (P=0.02).
In men and women 65 years of age or older who are living in the community, dietary supplementation with calcium and vitamin D moderately reduced bone loss measured in the femoral neck, spine, and total body over the three-year study period and reduced the incidence of nonvertebral fractures.

"I suffer from severe calcium and vitamin D deficiencies. My throat has become damaged from swallowing the large tablets and capsules required to improve my condition. I had been dissolving up to 12 tablets a day and drinking them in juice, but they still had a horribly bitter taste.

"I use the Wellesse Calcium and Vitamin D3 Liquid and the new Vitamin D3 5000 IU. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis a few years back and could not take the medication because of allergies to it. I was told to start taking Calcium and Vitamin D supplements to slow bone loss. I recently went in for a bone density test again, because of Wellesse I was told there was new growth and I now have Osteopenia and am headed in the right direction to possible complete regrowth. Test said: Since your prior study there has been a significant increase in the bone density of your spine."

"Sometime around 2003 I had a bone scan done and was diagnosed with Osteopenia. I was in my mid 50s with a family history of osteoporosis.

Two years ago I had a bone scan done again and I was within the normal range!"

The Calcium is wonderful tasting! My biggest thing is, I have always had horrible soft fingernails, not anymore, what a difference!"
"Congratulations on producing such a great product! I have been a consistent patient at the Mayo clinic eleven years. Each year my internist would get upset with me because I had not found a brand of calcium I could tolerate. As a result I had problems with bone density. Each year he would get more upset with me until February of 2010. He looked at the results of the tests and proclaimed they were perfect! I owe these improvements to the Wellesse Liquid Calcium with Vitamin D3 and the Wellesse Liquid Vitamin D3. They are very delicious and comfortable to take. Thank you for changing my life!"
"My rheumatologist recommended that I increase vitamin D3 intake to 2000 IU a day. In addition to my daily multivitamin (500 IU of D3) and Wellesse calcium (which contains 500 IU of D3), I am taking 1,000 IU of Wellesse Vitamin D3 liquid supplement (a total of 2000 IU per day). My blood test from April shows vitamin D3 level at 34; my next test is scheduled for early January 2009. So, this time of year any increase in my vitamin D3 level will be due to the supplement, not other factors. Since I increased my calcium and vitamin D3 I am already feeling better. Thank you, Wellesse!"
