The firm says Osteum contains native micellar calcium derived from fresh milk.
Ingredia Nutritional (Arras, France) promoted its new bone-health ingredient, Osteum, which the firm says contains “native micellar calcium derived from fresh milk.” According to Marc Dellière, the company’s medical advisor, “Clinical studies show that micellar calcium is the most bioavailable form of calcium, which means concretely that Osteum enables a better absorption of minerals into bone than any other ingredient available on the market.”
The firm says Osteum has been clinically shown to decrease bone degradation by stimulating osteoblast activity. Osteoblasts are the cells responsible for bone formation and mineralization. “By taking into account the different stages of bone life, from its formation to its resorption, Osteum reinforces bone tissue, while preventing the risks of osteoporosis,” the company says.
