Life Extension's "Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D" - super-absorbable calcium form fortified with Vitamin D
Healthy bone support and much more
Calcium is among the 24 vitamins and minerals that humans are required to ingest in order to have a good health. It is also the most abundant mineral in the human body and commonly referred to as what is known as a macromineral due to the large amounts required in the diet (sometimes in amounts that exceed a gram per day). It predominantly occurs naturally in foods such as dairy products and vegetables. The primary benefit of calcium is its' preventative effect, i.e. mitigating the risk of developing osteoporosis during the ageing process.
As a dietary supplement, is it primarily used to support bone and joint health, yet it is still important for much more, such as muscle contraction, blood vessel contraction and expansion, secretion of hormones and enzymes and sending messages throughout the nervous system. Calcium is often inadequately supplied and thus underingested. Furthermore, it is also very commonly seen that it is poorly absorbed and excreted much faster than it is being assimilated in the body. The very high rate of absorbability and utilisation of the citrate form has been well documented. In fact, this very form of calcium is recommended by many doctors and nutritionists world-wide. It dissolves very easily, even if the person ingesting it does not have a lot of stomach acid.
The "Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D" by Life Extension has been fortified with vitamin D3 in order to stimulate the absorption of the calcium found in the product and also because it supports healthy bone density.
Please note that calcium and other minerals should not be ingested with fiber products. Please also note that some forms of medication and other dietary supplements may have their absorption interfered with by calcium products and foods. Dietary supplements containing calcium are best taken with meals and should always be taken with a full, tall glass of water. If calcium-containing formulas are taken once a day, they may be best taken in the evening.
