Sigma Anti-bonding Calcium (SAC)
Revolutionary Technology Brings Breakthrough Bioavailability
SAC Calcium is an innovative new bio-material based on calcium carbonate derived from small oyster shells. Highly advanced process formulates it to maintain positive charges (2+) by altering the bonding structure, namely sigma anti-bonding. The positive charges of the molecule attract water molecules to cluster around it, making it incredibly water soluble and allowing direct and passive absorption into the body.
SAC Calcium is directly absorbed because of its anti-bonding positive charge, and is immediately bio-available. SAC bypasses active transport delivery that requires digestion with peptides and vitamin D, a complicated process that leaves absorbed calcium far less bio-available.
"SAC is the world's first safe calcium-ion delivery system directly into our body."
SAC is the first calcium-ion-delivery-system to help build and support strong bones while promoting normal bone mass. SAC also plays an important role in other functions such as nerve transmission and muscular function. Unlike other electrically neutral calcium supplements that require Active Transport, SAC calcium’s Passive Transport brings full absorption of calcium without the need for Vitamin D, peptide, or other agents.
Inside our cells, SAC calcium quickly breaks down to yield calcium ions, which are absorbed into capillaries and triggers our body’s natural bone formation process.
What is Sigma Anti-bonding?
Anti-bonding orbitals are essentially the “opposite” of bonding orbitals. They are formed when atomic orbitals combine in ways that lead to predominantly destructive interference.
The key feature of anti-bonding orbitals is that the molecular orbitals have a higher energy than the corresponding atomic orbitals. Thus, the molecule has a higher energy than the separated atoms (atoms separated by a large distance) and the atoms would prefer to be in the lower atomic state.
Anytime two atomic orbitals combine to give a lower-energy bonding orbital, an analogous higher energy anti-bonding orbital is also formed. Above is a figure depicting this simple bond/anti-bond molecular orbital diagram that we had for hydrogen. The diagram also shows that electrons (in this case) completely fill the bonding orbital and leave the anti-bonding orbital empty.
SAC calcium’s sigma anti-bonding keeps the calcium atoms in the molecule very loose and unstable. Our innovative technology locks calcium atoms in place until it is released in our body.

Absorption by Passive Transport
Anti-bonding of SAC calcium makes it hundreds of time more water soluble than conventional calcium supplements and maximizes the calcium absorption rate by 200 times more, all because SAC is passively absorbed without requiring any energy from cells.
Common ‘electrically-neutral’ calcium supplements must go through active transport to be absorbed by digestion involving peptides and vitamin D. This process brings calcium into our blood vessels as physiologically inactive protein calcium.
Taking Calcium Where It Needs to Go
While most of the body’s calcium is found in bones and teeth, the remaining calcium is circulated in the blood for use in other physiological functions. SAC’s cascading effects on physiological functions of our body also activate inactive protein-bound calcium in our blood to further boost and maintain good bone health.
Only SAC Provides PAC
(Physiologically Active Calcium)
Almost all your body’s calcium is stored in bone, but the tiny amount that circulates in your bloodstream is disproportionately vital to good health. About half of this circulating calcium (50%) is “ionized”, which means it carries electrical charges and this calcium ions (Ca2+) are the only physiologically active form that can be recognized by our body and responsible for numerous functions of our body such as the firing of muscle and nerve cells, promoting blood clotting, preventing the depletion of bone mass, securing proper cell multiplications, etc.
Calcium ions in the blood are so vital that the body cannot permit it to fluctuate. Therefore, even a slight increase in the concentration of ionized calcium in the blood triggers the bone building process to take excess calcium into bones. Utilizing this process is by far the most effective and safe way to support strong bones since it follows the body’s natural bone building mechanism.*
