EZorb Calcium Frequently Asked Questions


Frequently Asked Questions About EZorb Calcium

Q. What is in the EZorb Calcium?

A. EZorb Calcium is made of organic compounds. Unlike inorganic calcium sources such as calcium carbonate, calcium citrate or calcium gluconate, which are easily found in the earth as reefs, rocks or limestone, EZorb Calcium is scientifically synthesized based on Elixir Industry's proprietary technology, and is guaranteed to be soluble for absorption and subsequent bio-utilization. EZorb Calcium is made of anhydrous l-aspartic acid chelates of calcium, also referred to as anhydrous calcium aspartate.

Anhydrous calcium aspartate is the most stable form of calcium aspartate. It is created by binding molecules of l-aspartic acids to atoms of calcium. Laboratory tests show that anhydrous calcium aspartate is 6 times more stable than other forms of calcium aspartate. Among various forms of calcium aspartate, anhydrous calcium aspartate stands out with an unprecedented 92% absorption rate.

L-aspartic acid is one of the important amino acids that make up the human body. When bonded to calcium, l-aspartic acids serve as body guards to protect calcium against attacks from inorganic compounds regularly found in foodstuffs. They also function as transport media to deliver calcium to the destination where calcium consumption takes place.
The raw materials of EZorb are extracted from plants and vegetables.

Q. Why is EZorb Calcium superior to inorganic calcium sources?


A. In contrast to the high-tech nature of EZorb Calcium, common inorganic minerals that are used in majority of vitamin and mineral supplements today are minerals that are easily found in nature or in the earth as rocks or limestone.

EZorb Calcium is formed of l-aspartic acid chelates of calcium. L-aspartic acid chelates of calcium (also referred to as anhydrous calcium aspartate) and common inorganic calcium supplements are not considered in the same league in the school of nutrition.

First of all, EZorb Calcium is substantially more bioavailable than common inorganic minerals. In order for calcium supplements to be absorbed by body, they have to be soluble in the luminal fluid of the small intestine. The pH of the small intestinal fluid below the duodenum is 7.0-7.2. Inorganic calcium supplements will form insoluble hydroxides and become nonabsorbable at this pH. EZorb Calcium, on the other hand, is well shielded by l-aspartic acids, and will not precipitate. As a result, EZorb Calcium commands an unmatched 92% absorption rate which is 3-9 times higher than that of calcium carbonate or calcium citrate.

Secondly, EZorb is the only supplement that increases bone density by stimulating osteoblast activities and enhancing collagen production.*

Thirdly, choosing EZorb Calcium also prevents gastrointestinal (G.I.) distress. Inorganic calcium supplements can cause magma precipitation. This precipitation can coat the mucous membrane, resulting in diarrhea and constipation. Anhydrous calcium aspartate, however, does not form magma precipitation, and using them will not cause stomach disorders, small intestine stones or kidney stones.

In addition EZorb Calcium is kept intact from many compounds regularly found in foodstuffs. Those compounds that commonly exist in foods, such as carbonates, phosphates, oxalates and phytates, oftentimes attach themselves to inorganic calcium to form insoluble precipitates. These precipitates will further reduce the absorption of calcium in the small intestine.

Finally using EZorb Calcium helps protect vitamin stability. Inorganic calcium may serve as a catalyst to further the oxidation and degradation of vitamins. Chelated calcium, on the other hand, are well shielded by bonded organic ligands. They will not come in contact with vitamin molecules; thus, the vitamins will be protected from oxidation and degradation. And since magma precipitation is prevented, EZorb Calcium will not absorb vitamins and cause them to become nonabsorbable - problems that common inorganic mineral are known to cause.

Q. What are the benefits that I can get only from EZorb Calcium but not from others?


A. EZorb Calcium has created a gap between itself and others with its unmatched high absorption rate and high bioavailability. Its unique approach of increasing bone density by stimulating osteoblasts activities and enhancing collagen production also sets it apart from competition.*

There are many benefits you can only get from EZorb but not others. To name a few, choosing EZorb Calcium will help prevent G.I. distress, kidney stones or small intestine stones. Using it will also help protect vitamin stability.

EZorb Calcium can be most effectively used for the following symptoms

  • osteoporosis
  • loss of bone mass
  • arthritis (osteoarthritis)
  • joint and cartilage damage
  • bone fracture
  • bone spur
  • fibromyalgia
  • back pain / lower back pain
  • nerve / muscle pain
  • boost energy

EZorb is the best choice for children and teens for bone, teeth and muscle development. Its highest absorption rate guarantees that the young generation will have the opportunities to develop to their full potential.

EZorb Calcium also plays an important role in cardiology and hepatology. In Asia, EZorb Calcium has been widely used for*:

  • protection against myocardial necrosis

  • enhancement of liver function

  • detoxification of digitalis

  • bone tuberculosis

  • fibro cyctic induration

  • treatment of osteoporosis and arthritis (osteoarthritis)

Q. How do you compare EZorb Calcium to your competitors products?


A. Competing products including various forms of amino acid chelates of calcium available for commercial use are in hydrous form, in other words, they all contain two or more crystalline water in the molecules. As a result, the bonding of amino acid molecules to calcium ions is often too weak to stay stable. Hydrous form of calcium aspartate will become insoluble in the pH environment of the small intestine, and will not be bioavailable for absorption. In essence they are not better than common inorganic calcium supplements.

EZorb Calcium is made of anhydrous (waterless) chelates of two l-aspartic acid molecules and a single calcium ion. The strong and stable bonding of l-aspartic acid ligands to the calcium allows complete dissolution over a wide range of pH values. We guarantee that EZorb Calcium is soluble in the small intestine for absorption and subsequent bio-utilization.

Q. How do you compare EZorb Calcium with Coral Calcium?


A.
Coral calcium products are composed of calcium carbonate, the very same inorganic calcium compound you may find in other sources such as rocks or limestone. From a scientific point of view, there is hardly any difference between coral calcium and other once popular traditional calcium supplements such as Tums. They are all hard to absorb, and may all cause kidney stones, lung stones and small intestine stones in the long run.

On the other hand, the development of EZorb Calcium was powered by many years of persistent research on the myth of Okinawa and a latest technology breakthrough.

The technology invented literally reduced thousand-year evolution process in the nature to a few months. EZorb Calcium works even better than its natural counterpart. It has achieved significantly higher absorption and works in a wider range of pH environment.

The tremendous success of EZorb Calcium is a victory of science and mankind. Once again it proves to the world that nature wonders CAN be explained by modern science, and CAN be enhanced to produce better results.

Q. Why doesn't EZorb Calcium contain Vitamin D or magnesium?


A. Traditional calcium supplements are hardly absorbed in the pH medium of the small intestine. With the help of Vitamin D, their absorption rate is slightly higher.

Taking traditional calcium supplements also suppress your body's ability to absorb magnesium. In the pH environment of the small intestine, inorganic minerals tend to attach themselves to one another and form magma precipitation. Once precipitated, the minerals become nonabsorbable. Therefore taking inorganic calcium supplements will dramatically reduce magnesium absorption. And that is exactly why one needs to supplement magnesium while taking inorganic calcium.

EZorb Calcium, on the other hand, does not need participation of Vitamin D for better absorption. Calcium aspartate anhydrous (CalAA) is absorbed in its molecular form therefore it doesn't need to use Vitamin D as a carrier to penetrate the mucous membrane.

CalAA doesn't interact with other compounds thanks to its strong molecular structure. Therefore EZorb will not affect magnesium absorption.

Q. What should I expect to feel when I start taking EZorb Calcium?

A. In general you will notice that you have more energy. And most pre-existing symptoms such as pain, cramps, and weakness subside in about 3-6 weeks.

Fibromyalgia patients typically notice improvement within 1-3 weeks, if not just a couple of days, of starting EZorb. You will have much better sleep and have more energy during the day. Muscles will become relax and pain level will drop dramatically. Even vision will become more clear.

For people who have arthritis and/or bone spurs you will start seeing results in about 3-6 weeks. Pain level will reduce continuously while joint cartilage is being repaired. You'll notice that the spurs gradually shrink.

Theoretically people with osteoporosis are not expected to see results until next bone density check. However, since your bone and joint metabolisms are quite low you may also have developed other problems such as joint pain, for which you will notice the difference in 3-6 weeks.

Q. How could a calcium be effective on so many different types of diseases?


A. EZorb is not a traditional calcium supplement. Yes, it does provide your body with highly absorbable calcium. But calcium alone won't solve the problems. What's more important about EZorb is its ability to raise bone, joint and muscle metabolisms.

When you grow older your bone, joint and muscle metabolisms naturally slow down. Once that happens you will start to experience all sorts of bone/joint/muscle problems, including arthritis, osteoporosis, bone spurs, fibromyalgia and etc. For some people this process moves faster than others. That's why some people would experience bone loss, joint pain and bone spurs in 40s even 30s.

The only way to correct all those problems is to raise your bone, joint and muscle metabolisms. That's exactly what EZorb does and that's why EZorb is so effective against many bone, joint and muscle problems.

Q. I'm on medication. Is it safe to take EZorb Calcium?


A.
EZorb Calcium is absolutely safe and does not interfere with any prescription drugs.
Back To Top

Q. Will EZorb Calcium cause kidney stones?


A. It is common for inorganic calcium supplements to cause kidney stones and small intestine stones due to low absorption rate. EZorb Calcium is made of anhydrous calcium aspartate which boasts an exceptional 92% absorption rate. EZorb Calcium is one of the few, if not the only, calcium supplements that will not cause kidney stones.

Q. I'm pregnant. How much EZorb Calcium do I need?


A. During the last three months of pregnancy, calcium intake is crucial because the baby's bones are developing.

Babies in utero always take the nutrients they need from their mothers, whether or not they leave anything for their mother's bodies to use. If you don't get enough calcium in your diet your baby will be fine in terms of bone and teeth development because the baby will mobilize your own stores of calcium; but relying on your own calcium stores to build your baby's bones can be detrimental to you in the long run. You can develop osteoporosis later in life if you don't consume enough calcium for both you and your growing baby.

Our recommended dosage for you is 6-8 capsules or 3-4 teaspoons of powder a day.

Q. I'm a 36-year-old man. Do I need to take calcium supplements?

A. Osteoporosis and low bone mass are a major public health threat for an estimated 44 million US women and men aged 50 and older. A new NOF report estimates, by state, congressional District and the top 25 metro areas, the prevalence of low bone mass and osteoporosis in women and men aged 50 and over.

While women who have osteoporosis are four times more than men, almost 12 million men are now estimated to have low bone mass. By 2010, this figure is expected to climb to over 14 million and reach over 17 million men by 2020.

Studies show low calcium intake during younger ages is the major cause of osteoporosis or low bone mass at a later date.

The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends that men of all ages have adequate daily calcium intake to prevent development of osteoporosis. So the answer to your question is yes. You should start taking EZorb as early as possible.

Q. Are there any side effects of EZorb Calcium?


A. EZorb Calcium is perfectly safe. There are no known side effects to this date.

Q. Can you give us some background about EZorb Calcium?


A. EZorb Calcium is the result of a five-year project that was initiated and funded by the State Pharmaceutical Administration of China.

The project was called upon by the Administration based on the fact that over 13% of the population in China suffer from symptoms of calcium deficiency. Significant correlation was identified between unbalanced food structure and calcium deficiency. Chinese have little demand for dairy products.

The project team was formed of some of the best nutrition scientists across both sides of the Pacific Ocean.

The scientists started out by tackling the Okinawan myth of longevity, seemingly related to massive amount of calcium supply from the water they drank. Once they had full grasp of the scientific facts they moved on and developed a new calcium supplement that retained and enhanced only the best of what Okinawans got from their water.

The project was successfully completed in March of 2000 upon positive results from 12-month extensive clinical trials.

A total of 2,031 were enrolled in the program. The population was formed of people in normal health conditions, women in different stages of life, and those with symptoms such as osteoporosis, arthritis, osteoarthritis, back pain, neck pain, and joint problems. Subjects of male and female, and of different ages, were selected to ensure fair representation. 94% of the population reported positive results after taking EZorb Calcium.

EZorb has been recognized worldwide for its unmatched effectiveness on osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and other bone and joint disorders. EZorb is on top of doctors' lists in many countries. In the U.S., EZorb Calcium is marketed as a dietary supplement.

Q. Can I use EZorb Calcium on my children?


A. EZorb Calcium is the best friend for children and teens. Calcium is essential to their bones, teeth and muscle development.

Choosing a good calcium supplement for your kids is critical to their growth. Traditional calcium supplements may damage their stomach and cause problems in the long run.

EZorb has the highest absorption rate and it does not have any side effects. It is simply the best calcium source for all ages.
Back To Top

Q. Why can't I just increase calcium absorption by taking more dosage of inorganic calcium?

A. You could. But as a result there will be more inorganic minerals precipitated in the stomach and small intestine, and the excess amount of magma precipitation will cause G.I. tract distress such as diarrhea or constipation. The precipitate can also absorb crucial vitamins as it is excreted, thus depriving the body of essential vitamin. Therefore, increasing the amount of common inorganic calcium supplements would actually be detrimental.

Q. Is Rheumatoid Arthritis Really An Autoimmune Disease?

A. Conventional wisdom believes that Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which the body's defense system responds to a "false alarm" and attacks the joints. Different opinions center on which part of the joint is involved. Some believe that the synovium is attacked. Others argue that the collagen is assaulted. None of the argument really matters because the cause of the disease remains unknown to researchers.

It is not a secret that over the past four decades, RA research has often been driven by the pharmaceutical industry rather than researchers. This was particularly so in the 1970s-80s, with a focus on NSAIDs - drugs which do not alter the course of RA at all. The same mistake was repeated with anti-rheumatic drugs - researching combinations of often expensive drugs to achieve minor goals. And then again, the infamous COX-2 drugs represented by Vioxx - causing more harm than benefit.

  • Isn't it time to accept the fact that it has been a total failure in attempting to control inflammatory arthritis?

  • Isn't it time to alter the goal of RA research from CONTROL to CURE?

From a broader perspective, this is not just an isolated problem in RA research. Current medicine research typically places its emphasis on suppressing symptoms of a disease rather than addressing the root cause of those symptoms. Patients often end up taking more drugs to counter the side effects of other drugs.

In order to create more effective treatment for RA, researchers must completely change the way they understand diseases. It's totally unnecessary to create more sophisticated names for different combination of symptoms. There are already too many "diseases" for doctors to spell and pronounce.


As the Chinese discovered four thousand years ago, "if you don't find the disease in youngsters, it's about weak metabolism."

Rheumatoid Arthritis is one of those diseases. You don't find RA in children very often. Yes, some children develop juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). But just as unusual as they have JRA, their bone, joint and muscle metabolisms are unusually slower than that of a normal kid. This is evidenced by the proven effectiveness of EZorb against JRA.

Rheumatoid arthritis, just like osteoarthritis, is linked to weakened bone, joint and muscle metabolism, which also causes bone spur, bone loss and many other musculoskeletal disorders. The only effective way to correct all those diseases is to go to the source of the problem by raising bone, joint and muscle metabolism. EZorb does exactly that.

In average it takes about 6-12 weeks for RA patients to notice the improvement once they start taking EZorb. Pain level reduces continuously as the healing process goes on. Thousands RA patients have used EZorb to their satisfaction. Many have since returned to their previous life style.

Q. Why is Ezorb so effective against Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis?


A. Like many other bone, joint and muscle diseases, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is caused by weakened bone, joint and muscle metabolism. As part of the aging process, metabolism slows down gradually. It's not unusual for elderly to develop rheumatoid arthritis.

Unfortunately a small percentage of the population may experience a decelerating bone, joint and muscle metabolism at an earlier stage of life. As a result they become extremely vulnerable to diseases like juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. The only effective way to correct those diseases is to go to the source of the problem by raising bone, joint and muscle metabolism. EZorb does exactly that.

Q. What causes osteoarthritis?

A. Nearly half of all Americans older than 60 develop osteoarthritis and most people older than 80 will develop it. The percentage of people with osteoarthritis in Canada is even higher. But joints don't just wear out with age. Researchers now recognize that several factors lead to the development of osteoarthritis rather than one single factor.

These are: biological Factors, age, joint damage by injury or by chronic obesity, and heredity.


Interestingly all of those factors eventually lead to osteoarthritis through weakening bone and joint metabolism.


Although it seems that only those "over the hill" get osteoarthritis, it has been detected in people before they reach 21. Osteoarthritis may be more common in older people, but age is definitely only one of the causes.


An injury such as a fracture or torn cartilage may result in osteoarthritis later in life. It may follow unusual or prolonged strain on a joint either in work or sport. People who constantly stress their joints are at particular risk of getting osteoarthritis, e.g., bus drivers, coal miners and foundry workers. But long distance runners who are trained in avoiding and recovering from injury are not more likely to develop osteoarthritis.

Being overweight for a long period is also considered to speed up the process. People who are obese may be more likely to develop osteoarthritis but the jury is still out on this exact link.


Too much weight leads to increased stress on weight bearing joints such as the knees, hips and lower spine and people who are overweight are also more likely to develop osteoarthritis in their fingers and hands.


Some forms of osteoarthritis do run in families, especially those that affect the small joints of fingers. But in general, heredity is not a major reason for osteoarthritis. In some people, osteoarthritis may be triggered by another disease, for example, Paget's disease.


Although the main cause of osteoarthritis is known to be weakened bone, joint and muscle metabolism, the precise mechanisms leading to osteoarthritis are still unknown and research is continuing. Research is underway regarding cells within cartilage that break down, leading to osteoarthritis.


Osteoarthritis is not caused by bacteria or poisons in the blood, acids in the body, diet deficiencies or excesses, gland abnormalities, the weather, exercise or sudden shock, although some of these may influence the pain.


Normally, joints have such a low friction level that they don't wear out unless they are used excessively or are injured. When bone and joint metabolism slows down, even at a low friction level the joint cartilage wears out easily.

Osteoarthritis probably begins most often with an abnormality of the cells that synthesize the components of cartilage, such as collagen (a tough, fibrous protein in connective tissue) and proteoglycans (substances that provide the cartilage's resilience).


Next, the cartilage may grow too much, but it eventually thins and develops cracks on the surface. Tiny cavities form in the marrow of the bone beneath the cartilage, weakening the bone.


Bone can overgrow at the edges of the joint, producing bone spurs (osteophytes), which can be seen and felt. These bone spurs may interfere with normal joint function, causing pain.


Ultimately, the smooth, slippery surface of the cartilage becomes rough and pitted, so that the joint can no longer move smoothly. All the components of joints fail in various ways.


It's not uncommon for people who have developed osteoarthritis to also display symptoms of osteoporosis, bone spurs or fibromyalgia. In fact, many bone and joint related problems can be traced down to a common problem: weakened bone and joint metabolism. When you grow older your bone, joint and metabolism slows down naturally. When that happens you'll start to experience all sorts of problems with bone, joint and muscle. EZorb is the only product that has successfully addressed all those problems from the source - by raising the level of bone, joint and muscle metabolism.

Q. What is the Importance of Collagen?

A. Collagen is a type of protein. Protein is abundant in the human body, as it is with all living creatures. In humans different systems and parts of the body require different proteins that have a variety of functions. It is these "functional proteins" that are the essence of life.

It is easier to understand collagen if we have some knowledge of the role of proteins within the body and what a protein is made from. Proteins are used by the body for a whole host of things, e.g. within blood (for carrying molecules and for clotting), for digestion (enzymes are proteins), for movement (muscle), etc. etc. One other major role of proteins is that of "structural proteins", i.e. those proteins that contribute to and sustain the integrity of the human structure. Collagen is a structural protein and in this sense is both "functional" and "structural".

Hold this thought for a moment while we look at what makes a protein. Proteins are constructed from biological building blocks called amino acids. There are about 20 amino acids that occur in nature and different proteins are built from some or all of these. By using different numbers of amino acids and by altering the relative sequence of them it is possible to make unique proteins, with unique qualities.

Collagen is unique and also has two amino acids not found in other biological proteins; they are hydroxylated versions of known amino acids that confer special properties. Collagen is found in a number of tissues, in various sub forms, but is particularly abundant within and around joints. Tendon and cartilage owe much of their desirable properties to collagen. Collagen containing structures, such as the ones mentioned, are prone to wear and tear in the body.

Indeed, they are in a constant state of turnover, as with most tissues, but have the disadvantage of having a poor blood supply (this does not favor ease of repair). Due to the demands upon the collagen containing structures (movement and weight bearing) and their slower ability to repair it is vital that we optimize the conditions for helping to maintain joint mobility.

Bones with sufficient collagen composition are steels that are both strong and elastic. Bones with low level of collagen composition are brittle wood that are easily broken. Prescription drugs for osteoporosis slow down loss of bone mass by suppressing bone metabolism. The dead bone mass and collagen "saved" by the drugs take up all the space that would have been filled up by new bone mass and collagen. That's why we've seen so many reports complaining that osteoporosis drugs such as Fosamax, Actonel and Evista made bones brittle, and that people who were treated with them tend to suffer more from bone fractures.

Wear and tear of joint cartilage is the major cause of osteoarthritis. Joint cartilage is 95% built with collagen. The more collagen you have in the joints the less chance you will develop osteoarthritis.

If we consider all the above points, what we need is a way of speeding up collagen production so as to help the repair processes of collagen structures in a safe and preferably natural way.

EZorb Calcium is one of the most effective solutions for that purpose. Clinical trial results indicate that the symptoms associated with collagen structure degradation, osteoporosis and osteoarthritis included, are clearly reduced while taking EZorb.*

EZorb Calcium stimulates metabolism to enhance collagen formation in bones and joints. As a result, bone density will increase (osteoporosis reversed) and cartilage will be repaired (osteoarthritis healed). Other collagen products simply feed your stomach with collagen without knowing whether or not it will be absorbed in its original form, let alone transported to bones and joints.

Q. Can you tell me more about bones and joints and what types of things can go wrong?

A. Bone is a constantly changing bodily tissue that has several functions. All the bones together make up the skeleton. The skeleton, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other components of joints all together form the musculoskeletal system. The skeleton provides strength, stability, and a frame for muscles to work against in producing movement. Bones also serve as shields to protect delicate internal organs.

Bones have two main shapes: flat bones, such as the plates of the skull and the vertebrae, and long bones, such as thighbone and arm bones. But their internal structure is essentially the same. The hard outer part consists largely of proteins, such as collagen, and a substance called hydroxyapatite. Hydroxyapatite is composed mainly of calcium and other minerals; in fact it stores much of the body's calcium and is largely responsible for the strength of bones.

The marrow in the center of each bone is softer and less dense than the rest of the bone and contains specialized cells that produce blood cells. Blood vessels run through a bone, and nerves surround it.

Bones come together to form joints. The configuration of a joint determines the degree and direction of possible motion. Some joints, such as those between the plates of the skull, called sutures, don't move in adults. Others allow a range of motion. For example, the shoulder joint, which has a ball-and-socket design, allows inward and outward rotation as well as forward, backward, and sideways motion of the arm. Hinge joints in the elbows, fingers, and toes allow only bending (flexion) and straightening (extension).

Other components of joints provide stability and reduce the risk of damage from constant use. In a joint, the ends of bones are covered with cartilage - a smooth, tough, protective tissue that acts as a shock absorber and reduces friction.

Joints also have a lining (called synovial tissue) enclosing them to form the joint capsule. Cells in the synovial tissue produce a clear fluid (synovial fluid) that fills the capsule, which further reduces friction and aids movement.

Muscles are bundles of fibers that can contract, or tighten. Skeletal muscles, which are responsible for posture and movement, are attached to bones and arranged in opposing groups around joints. For example, muscles that straighten the elbows (triceps muscles) counter muscles that bend them (the biceps muscles).

Tendons are tough bands of connective tissue, attaching each end of a muscle to a bone. Ligaments, which are similar tissues, surround joints and connect one bone to another. They help strengthen and stabilize joints, permitting movement only in certain directions.

Bursas are fluid-filled sacs that provide extra cushioning, usually between adjacent structures that otherwise might rub against each other and as a result might cause wear and tear - for instance, between a bone and a ligament.

Q.How does Ezorb get rid of bone spurs?

A. Bone spurs are caused by weakened bone metabolism. Calcium deficiency also contributes to bone spur formation. When bone metabolism starts weakening, osteoblast (bone forming cells) activity diminishes. As a result, less bone mass is being created from calcium. And oftentimes the new bone mass creation process is not completed. Bone spurs are essentially incomplete bone mass.

Calcium deficiency also plays a role. Calcium is consumed by many of body functions. If the body doesn't get it from daily supply, it takes calcium away from the bones, causing calcium "erupted" from bones, hence the bone spurs.

Taking EZorb ensures that the body will never run out of calcium for daily consumption, and it stimulates osteoblast activity to convert more calcium into bone mass. Doing so will cut off the supply to the existing bone spurs. And the existing spurs get reabsorbed or reused to create bone mass.
