Not just a calcium story

Ageing results in loss of bone density, muscle mass (sarcopenia) and deterioration of joints. The ability to undertake essential weight bearing exercise required for bone density maintenance can be severely inhibited by muscle loss and joint pain.

Sarcopenia – a forgotten consequence of ageing

Sarcopenia is an age related degenerative condition that may affect as many as 24% of people between 65 and 70 years of age2. It is characterised by loss of lean muscle mass, quality and strength. This often overlooked consequence of aging can drastically affect quality of life and lead to increased frailty and loss of independence.

Highly processed single nutrient solutions, like calcium for osteoporosis, are not the answer, rather, a multi-pronged approach is needed.

Protein supplementation is highly beneficial for muscle protein synthesis, providing amino acids that are readily absorbed and utilised by the body . CytoC is made up of a complex matrix of collagen proteins, bone proteins, microcrystalline hydroxyapatite calcium and glycosaminoglycans. The collagen in CytoC contains the 8 essential building blocks required for muscle growth, repair and development. What’s more, the bone proteins in CytoC have been shown to inhibit bone resorbing osteoclasts, and promote bone matrix formation through their effect on osteoblast differentiation.

CytoC Manufacture

CytoC is manufactured from edible raw materials that are minimally processed to preserve their naturally occurring biological activity.

Alternative products are manufactured from starting raw materials that may not be fit for human consumption and require aggressive “clean up” processes. This results in highly processed finished products with greatly reduced effectiveness.

CytoC is a completely natural, unrefined nutritional ingredient with no synthetic additives, manufactured entirely in New Zealand from New Zealand sourced raw materials.
