2 AEP Calcium
Also known as: Calcium 2-aminoethylphosphate, Ca-AEP, Ca-2AEP
Calcium 2-AEP is produced when calcium is combined with 2-Aminoethylphosphate. While people conventionally think of calcium as being essential to bone health and maintenance, this type of calcium is different. Calcium 2-AEP can be found within many of the body’s tissues and is integral to the structure of cell membranes and is required for cellular membrane functions. Further, as a component in the structure of cell membranes, calcium 2-AEP helps facilitate the absorption of nutrients as a mineral transporter while decreasing water solubility, which helps to protect cells.
