Taken 3 times a day, the Bio Health Extra Calcium+ provides 100% RDA (recommended daily allowance) of the nutrients vitamin D, calcium, magnesium and zinc associated with bones.
Calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and zinc are needed for the maintenance of normal bones and normal teeth. Calcium and vitamin D are needed for normal growth and development of children`s bones.
Most of the body’s calcium is deposited in the bones and teeth but is also required by nerves and muscles. It is a mineral easily lost from the body’s reserves or lost because of poor absorption from foodstuff.
Calcium is the main contributor to the skeletal frame consisting of 206 bones which together provide structure, articulation and protection of vulnerable organs.
The rate of calcium depletion is much higher in older women so a regular dietary intake is important to ensure reserves are kept at optimal levels. Calcium is equally important for nerve impulse transmission and blood coagulation.
