Facts you didn’t know about Calcium…


Calcium is helpful in the growth process and bone development, it reduces fracture risk, prevents osteoporosis and facilitates normal blood clotting. It also has an important role in the transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction and relaxation. In addition it regulates hormone levels and stimulates immunity. Being the most present mineral in the body, calcium represents 1.5% of body weight.

Calcium uptake in the body is dependent upon the presence of vitamin D3. In the absence of this vitamin, the whole calcium absorption process is deficient. Generally, only 40% of ingested calcium is absorbed at the intestinal level, the process being negatively influenced by multiple factors such as: high fat meals, excessive sodium intake, cereal consumption, various drugs and even seasonality (from September to March).

Recently developed pharmaceutical technologies have made ​​possible a calcium preparation for children, which manages to overcome all barriers mentioned above.
