Calcium Supplements Products

Nearly two percent of the human body is made up of calcium. In fact, it is the most abundant mineral in the human body because strong bones are mostly made of it. However, the bones are not the only part of the body that benefits from calcium. A good number of enzymes are dependent upon calcium for proper functioning. Calcium aids in blood coagulation and the proper functioning of the heart and nervous system. Sadly, many people are deficient in calcium, and this causes the body to rob the bones, leading to osteoporosis. For excellent overall health, it is smart to make good use of calcium supplements combined with vitamin D, which facilitates good calcium absorption.

Calcium can be very helpful in treating symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), and it is also helpful in treating pain during menstruation. It is also believed that pregnant women should receive the correct amount of calcium supplementation to help ward off the possibility of preeclampsia. Some studies have shown it to be helpful in treating disorders such as migraine headaches and attention deficit. Proper levels of calcium also help prevent a variety of cancers. This is especially true for women during and after menopause who also benefit from calcium supplementation to help prevent osteoporosis.

Naturally, calcium is helpful in preventing bone loss and also in maintaining healthy teeth. It is important to understand that mega-doses of calcium are neither necessary, nor desirable. The body can only absorb a maximum of 500 milligrams of calcium at a time, so it is best to supplement with this amount along with vitamin D and also eat a diet that is rich in calcium. Some of the best natural sources of calcium include dairy products, sardines, tofu, calcium fortified cereals and green, leafy vegetables. Vita Living provides an excellent assortment of calcium and vitamin D dietary supplements.
