ABOUT WOMAN TO THE BONE

MenaCal.7, the calcium supplement that understands women’s calcium needs, is proud to celebrate South African women and all they do for their families, their communities and the nation. This unique campaign is focused on showing South African women as they truly are… Beautiful and powerful to the bone.

 

The phrase “TO THE BONE” means total and complete. Women are wholly committed to protecting their families, uplifting their communities and contributing to our nation, no matter what the impact on their health. So we’re committed to creating and providing a calcium solution to support their physical needs, and offering further support to the role they play in society.

 

MenaCal.7 – the proud supporter of women, the backbone of South Africa.
