Calcium is essential for maintaining body health. Your body needs it every day not just to keep your bones and teeth strong over your lifetime, but to ensure proper functioning of muscles and nerves. Well Calcium Complex helps to maintain normal bone density and development. It not only contains Calcium but also other vital nutrients like Vitamin D, Magnesium, Vitamin K2-7 and Zinc that promotes bone health and gives body a strong foundation.
Bones are living tissues and throughout life, they experience remodeling, since old bone tissue gets worn-out and fresh bone is produced. We reach our maximum bone strength by about the age of 30 years. After that we slowly start losing our bones as our body absorbs less of calcium with the age. A body, stores about 99 percent of its calcium in the bones and teeth to help make and keep them strong. Calcium deficiency is usually due to an inadequate intake of calcium. When blood calcium levels drop too low, the vital mineral is "borrowed" from the bones. If an individual's calcium intake in diet is low, there may not be sufficient amount of calcium available in the blood to be returned to the bones to maintain strong bones and body health.Therefore healthy actions to promote bone health should begin in childhood and continue throughout our lifetime.
Adequate Calcium and Vitamin D throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. (The U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized a health claim related to Calcium, Vitamin D and Osteoporosis for foods and supplements)
