Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D
Promotes healthy bones, teeth, and supports healthy heart-muscle function
Calcium Citrate (with vitamin D) - Supports healthy bones and teeth, and is important for muscle and blood vessel contraction
Benefits of Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D
- Supports healthy bones and teeth
- Supports skeletal structure and function
- Enhances heart-muscle function
- At optimal levels, promotes proper coagulation (blood clotting)
- Promotes correct blood vessel expansion and contraction
- Supports correct hormone and enzyme production
- Supports correct muscle function
Calcium supports healthy, strong bones and teeth, enhances heart-muscle function and muscle response, and, when at optimal levels ensures proper coagulation. Calcium is critical for nervous system messaging, hormone and enzyme production, muscle function, blood vessel expansion and contraction, and thus heart health.
Calcium citrate has long been recommended by doctors and nutritionists around the globe, as it is more easily absorbed and used by the body. In fact, the bioavailability of calcium citrate is 2.5 times more than that of calcium carbonate.
Due to its increased bioavailability rate, calcium citrate is appropriate for the elderly, who naturally have a slower calcium uptake, and for menopausal women and andropausal men, where hormonal changes occur, and which can adversely affect calcium uptake.
The absorption of calcium is positively influenced by the addition of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is important for correct absorption of calcium in the intestines and bones. Without sufficient vitamin D3, calcium cannot 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 (also found in the vitamin B complex), for the activation of numerous enzymes, and is involved in coagulation, cell growth, and hormone metabolism. Calcium also contributes to the maintenance of 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.
A ‘ full comprehensive’ anti-osteoporosis formula should include, magnesium, vitamin K2 (as menaquinone), zinc, selenium, collagen, and silicon, all of which support strong healthy bones.
