Calcium is an important mineral for proper bone health, but also plays key roles in nerve and muscle function, and blood clotting. Our Calcium Citrate is a superior form of calcium over calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate needs stomach acid to be absorbed in the body, whereas calcium citrate does not have this requirement, making it more easily digested and absorbed.*
Calcium is stored primarily in the bones and teeth, though a crucial amount is contained in the blood. During the bone mineralization process calcium combines with phosphate to form calcium phosphate, a major mineral component that adds strength and structure to bones. The body regulates the amount of calcium in the blood to ensure that enough is available to carry out its necessary functions. When calcium intake is low and the body is unable to maintain sufficient blood levels of calcium, the body will take the mineral from bones. If this process is prolonged over time, bones may become weak, brittle and porous (osteoporosis), leaving bones more susceptible to fractures.*
To maximize calcium absorption, adequate intake of Vitamin D is needed. Vitamin D accelerates the absorption of calcium from the digestive tract, which makes calcium available to perform its various functions throughout the body. *
Blood levels of calcium influence contraction and relaxation of muscles, including the heart muscles. Low blood calcium, or hypocalcemia, can cause muscle irritation, often in the back and legs, in the form of cramps.*
Calcium intake is also an important factor in blood clotting. Working with Vitamin K and a protein called fibrinogen, calcium helps in the blood coagulation process to stop blood loss from damaged blood vessels.*
