Calcium 600mg with Vitamin D – 90 tablets
Calcium is needed throughout the body not only for healthy bones, but also for muscle contraction, transmission of nerve impulses, and chemical reactions within cells. Vitamin D enhances the absorption of calcium. In the absence of adequate vitamin D, only very little of calcium is absorbed. Calcium balance is generally positive during growth, neutral in the mature adult, and negative in older adults. Reduced oestrogen levels in women result in reduced calcium absorption and retention, increased bone turnover, and lower bone mass. Elderly women, in general, have an impaired intestinal response to vitamin D which can lead to negative calcium balance and bone loss.
