Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D
Promotes healthy bones, teeth and heart health
Calcium Citrate (with vitamin D) - Supports healthy bones and teeth, and is important for muscle and blood vessel contraction
Calcium Citrate with vitamin D as a supplement is in the form highly recommended by doctors and nutritionists as it’s the form most easily absorbed and used by your body.
The bioavailability of calcium citrate is 2.5 times than that of calcium carbonate.
This Calcium Citrate supplement with added vitamin D is appropriate for the elderly who have a slower calcium uptake, and for menopausal women and andropausal men, where hormonal changes occur that adversely affect calcium uptake. Also, over-consumption of alcohol can be responsible for reduced uptake of calcium.
Calcium supports healthy bones and teeth, enhances heart-muscle function and muscle response and when at optimal levels, it ensures proper coagulation. Calcium is critical for nervous system messaging, hormone & enzyme production, muscle function, blood vessel expansion & contraction, and thus heart health.
If you are looking for a ‘comprehensive’ anti-osteoporosis formula, you should include magnesium, vitamin K2 (as menaquinone), zinc, selenium, collagen, and silicon.
Calcium is needed for healthy bones, teeth and correct blood coagulation. It is used by the muscles to help produce energy and plays a role in the heart-muscle function and muscle response. In the absence of adequate dietary calcium, the body goes into a ‘negative calcium balance’, which forces it to extract calcium from the skeletal stores (bone) so it can supply many other bodily needs. This will, of course, weaken the bones over time if it is continual.
Abnormalities in coagulation and heart-muscle function rarely occur when calcium levels are balanced and optimal.
The absorption of calcium can be positively influenced by vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is important for correct absorption of calcium in the intestines and bones. Without sufficient vitamin D3, calcium will not integrate into the bones and as a result, they will become soft.
Calcium also plays a crucial role in nerve impulse transmission, is needed for the absorption of vitamin B12 (or B50 complex), for the activation of numerous enzymes and is involved in coagulation, cell growth and hormone metabolism. Calcium also contributes to the maintenance of a normal energy metabolism, to the healthy functioning of digestive enzymes, and plays a role in cell division and cell proliferation.
The uptake of calcium by the body is affected by numerous factors: Sufficient exercise and adequate vitamin D3 will help supply an increased uptake. Too little exercise and inadequate vitamin D3 will decrease uptake. Magnesium should also be taken with calcium to help protect the heart.
Magnesium can help avoid a build-up of calcium in the arteries.
