Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body ...primarily found in the bones and teeth. In bone formation, calcium forms crystals that provide strength to maturing bone.
Calcium is needed for more than just healthy bones. It is also important for muscle contraction, blood vessel contraction and expansion, the secretion of hormones and enzymes, and sending messages through the nervous system. Calcium is an essential mineral that is often inadequately supplied, inefficiently absorbed, or excreted faster than it is being assimilated. Calcium citrate dissolves easily even if one doesn’t have much stomach acid. Many people naturally produce less acid as they age, so calcium citrate is a good choice for older adults. The addition of vitamin D3 is also critically important because it stimulates calcium absorption and promotes healthy bone density. However, as people age, they often lose the ability to make vitamin D3
Calcium and other minerals are best not taken with fiber, because fiber can interfere with their absorption. Calcium supplements are best taken with meals. They should always be taken with a full glass of water, juice, or other liquid to enhance solubility. If calcium-containing formulas are taken only once daily, they may be best taken in the evening,
Take one (1) capsule, one to four times daily with food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
