Vitamin D 400 IU – 180 tablets
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.
Bone Health: Vitamin D improves calcium absorption and reduces the urinary excretion of calcium.
