Calcium + Vitamin D3
Calcium is an important component of a healthy diet and a mineral necessary for life. The National Osteoporosis Foundation says, “Calcium plays an important role in building stronger, denser bones early in life and keeping bones strong and healthy later in life.” Approximately 99 percent of the body’s calcium is stored in the bones and teeth.[This product contains ingredients derived from animal sources.

Approximately 99 percent of the body’s calcium is stored in the bones and teeth. This product contains ingredients derived from animal sources. Long-term calcium deficiency can lead to rickets and poor blood clotting and in case of a menopausal woman, it can lead to osteoporosis, in which the bone deteriorates and there is an increased risk of fractures. A lifelong deficit can affect bone and tooth formation.
Vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium. Proper vitamin D status is important because vitamin D is converted to a hormone in the body, which then induces the synthesis of intestinal proteins responsible for calcium absorption. For older people with osteoporosis, taking vitamin D with calcium may help prevent hip fractures. Vitamin D deficiency causes osteomalacia (called rickets when it occurs in children). Osteomalacia reduces calcium absorption and increases calcium loss from bone; it is a disease in adults that results from vitamin D deficiency. Characteristics of this disease are softening of the bones, leading to bending of the spine, bowing of the legs, proximal muscle weakness, bone fragility, and increased risk for fractures.
