Calcium is one of the most crucial chemical element that builds and regulates our body. It is responsible for the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. The proper concentration of this element ensures normal blood clotting and s foster proper muscle function and neurotransmission. We get recommended amounts of calcium from the food we eat. Sometimes, to avoid calcium deficiencies, a diet supplement should be considered.
The product compounds exhibit a broad spectrum of activity:
- Calcium and vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
- Both calcium and vitamin D also helps to reduce the loss of bone mineral in post-menopausal women. Low bone mineral density is a risk factor for osteoporotic bone fractures.
- Vitamin D – helps to reduce the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness. Falling is a risk factor for bone fractures among men and women 60 years of age and older, It also contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
- Calcium plays important role in the maintenance of normal muscle function, energy-yielding metabolism, as well as a normal function of digestive enzymes.
- Vitamins A is crucial in the maintenance of normal skin, vision and function of the immune system.
- Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system, as well as normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, skin, teeth, cartilage, gums.
- Dissolve ½-1 sachet in 100 ml of water at about 40ºC. The supplement should be taken at 30 minutes before food, once a day, preferably in the afternoon.
The preparation should not be used by children under 12 years. In case a doctor prescribes an antibiotic, inform them of taking calcium, as this may decrease antibiotic absorption.
Excess calcium is equally disadvantageous as its deficiency. Calcium supplementation should be consulted with the doctor, as for instance in patients suffering from kidney stones, excessive calcium intake may increase kidney stone formation. Excess calcium may also limit the absorption of other minerals such as zinc, magnesium, iron or fluorine. It is hence recommended to keep a three-hour break between supplements containing these elements.
