Calcium & Vitamin D for Strong Bones & Muscles
Calcium and vitamin D are synonymous with each other due to their complementary roles within the body. Primarily, calcium supports bone density and muscle contraction, whilst vitamin D helps the body absorb this mineral. In this formula, we have included high amounts of calcium alongside vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) which is the body’s preferred type of this nutrient.
As calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, we require a relatively large amount of it on a daily basis. For this reason, it has gained the tag of a ‘macro-mineral’. Because of this, tablets that contain a relevant dose of calcium are notoriously large. Therefore, we have made this tablet chewable, making it easy to consume whilst boasting a delicious strawberry flavour.
Benefits for All Age Groups
Calcium and vitamin D provide health benefits for all, but they are especially important for children and older adults. In children, these two essential nutrients contribute to normal growth and development.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) also acknowledges that calcium and vitamin D help to reduce bone weakening in post-menopausal women which can in turn decrease the risk of osteoporosis. To help in this regard, women over the age of 50 are recommended to consume 1200mg of calcium and 20µg (800iu) of vitamin D per day. As this is difficult to obtain through food alone, a high quality supplement can certainly be of benefit.
Although vitamin C and zinc are the nutrients which come to mind when seasonal defence is mentioned, vitamin D also has an important role in ensuring the immune system functions normally in both adults and children. As our immune system can often become compromised during the colder, darker months, a vitamin D supplement can help make up for the lack of sunlight exposure.
