Around ninety-nine percent of calcium is stored in the bones and teeth, while the remaining one percent circulates in the blood supporting muscle function and nerve transmission. When calcium blood levels are low the body robs calcium from the bones, which can cause them to become porous and weak. This is a key reason why sufficient dietary intakes of calcium are essential to reduce the rate of age-related bone loss.
The presence of vitamin D is required for the body to effectively absorb calcium, and may also reduce the excretion of calcium in the kidneys. The body produces vitamin D when exposed to natural sunlight, however it can be tricky to receive the recommended daily levels in the UK, particularly during the winter months. In fact, findings from a recent survey show that over half of the UK population have insufficient levels of vitamin D. This is one of the reasons we have designed this unique formulation to offer both of these beneficial nutrients in one convenient tablet.
This synergistic formula provides the advised levels of calcium and vitamin D, which are proven to work in harmony to grow and maintain healthy bones and teeth as we age. This high quality calcium vitamin D supplement can provide a safe and cost-effective intervention for people at risk of deficiency.
