Throughout your life, it is essential to ensure strong bones: The normal intake of calcium alone is not enough, to optimise its absorption, magnesium and vitamins D and K are also needed.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, it is essential for the mineralization and consolidation of the bones. At any life stage, calcium has an important role: in children it allows bone growth, in adults the maintenance of bone capital as well as the prevention of osteoporosis and fractures for older people. From the menopause for women and from around 60 years of age for men, physiological bone loss appears which constitutes a favourable basis for the development of osteoporosis.
Before calcium can strengthen the bones, it must be absorbed by the intestine. This is where vitamin K and vitamin D are key. Like vitamin D, other nutrients have been identified to promote the absorption of calcium from the body, among these there is a mineral essential to the body: magnesium.
She+ Calcium provides calcium and magnesium in a natural, patented and marine form with exceptional bioavailability. This unique and essential combination of 2 minerals is supplemented by the 2 vitamins necessary for calcium absorption: natural vitamins D3 and K2. Vitamin D3 comes from lichen. She + Calcium is an ultra complete and effective formula blending the unique combination of calcium, magnesium, vitamins D3 and K2 in their most assimilable forms. This formula is perfectly suitable for vegans.
Calcium along with magnesium, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 are necessary for the maintenance of normal bones.
Vitamin D3 also contributes to normal teeth, absorption and normal use of calcium, as well as normal calcium levels.
Calcium and vitamin K2 contribute to normal blood clotting.

She+ mature & fit
For mature women, it is highly recommended to supplement with calcium in order to optimise their bone structure! From the menopause onwards, it is essential women consume sufficient nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, plants and nutrients necessary to maintain their health, vitality and well-being. For all these reasons She+ Mature & Fit with its 35 high-quality nutrients is the best health ally for mature women.
Calcium supplementation, the ally for the health of your bones!
Osteoporosis is a skeletal condition that increases the risk of fractures in the event of a fall due to weakened bones. One in three women is at risk of osteoporosis after the menopause and the frequency of fractures increases significantly after the age of 45.
Calcium supplementation is essential but not sufficient: it is also necessary to concurrently take the micronutrients that attach the calcium to the bone structure. Studies have shown that taking calcium alone can even be harmful and increase the risk of a heart attack*.
That’s why our research team has developed the She+ Calcium formula by adding the 2 vitamins to attach the calcium (vitamin D and vitamin K), and magnesium. Magnesium is also essential for healthy bones.

Nutritional advice to maintain strong bones and good blood clotting
In people over the age of 45, bone resorption develops and a loss of bone mass occurs. It is therefore important to include sufficient calcium-rich foods in the diet to cover the body’s needs and avoid deficiency. Calcium is mainly found in cheese, tofu products and dairy products. Calcium-rich foods of plant origin provide the best assimilation.
Calcium is also found in the following foods:
- Oily fish
- Herbs and spices
- Nuts and seeds
- Vegetables, especially greens
- Mineral enriched cereals
In addition to nutrition, certain mineral waters that are particularly rich in calcium can help meet the body’s needs. Water is said to be rich in calcium if it contains more than 150 mg of calcium per litre.
Vitamins D and K2 are essential for calcium restoration in the bones. Vitamin D is mainly found in fish and dairy products, especially if they are enriched with it. Vitamin K2 is found in fermented products such as natto (fermented soya), miso (fermented soya bean paste), liver, yogurt, and fish oils.
