Calcium 600mg + Vitamin D3 1000IU

‘Healthy bone development’

Why do we need Calcium + Vitamin D3?

Calcium:

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, and approximately 99% of the body's calcium exists in the bones. The major function of calcium is building and maintaining bones and teeth. However, calcium is also involved in various metabolic roles such as nerve transmission, contraction of muscles and the regulation of heart muscle function. Thus Calcium is essential for bone health, as well as playing important roles in healthy muscle and nerve function.

Vitamin D3:

Vitamin D3 stimulates the absorption of calcium from the small intestine, and the reabsorption of calcium from the kidneys. It also decreases parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels which decreases the amount of calcium released from bone. A major function of calcium is building and maintaining bones and teeth, thus adequate levels of Vitamin D are important for healthy bone mass, and in maintaining bone density. Low levels of Vitamin D have been associated with reduced bone density and increased risk of hip and other fractures in the elderly.

Vitamin D has the added benefit of helping to improve muscle strength in the elderly. Improving muscle strength can help to reduce the incidence of falls, which can also reduce the risk of fractures.

Who should be taking Calcium 600mg + Vitamin D3?

There are a significant number of Australians who are at risk of Calcium and/or Vitamin D deficiency. In particular the elderly are at risk, as ageing increases the amount of calcium released by the bone, and decreases the skin's capacity to produce Vitamin D3.Others at risk include all people who have inadequate exposure to sunlight (for example people with dark skin).

Dosage

Adults: take 1 tablet daily with food and a glass of water, or as directed by a healthcare professional.

Ingredients

Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) equivalent to 1000IU, Calcium (as Carbonate) 600mg.
