Calcium


Good quality calcium is necessary for strong bones and teeth and is also critical for many enzyme reactions, cardiovascular health and nerve and muscle function.*

A healthy diet and sufficient uptake of high quality calcium may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life, espcially for teen and young adult women. Magnesium works with calcium to promote cardiovascular health. *

Calcium absorption can be hindered by the presence of too much phosphorus.

Food Sources:
  • dairy foods
  • broccoli
  • green leafy vegetables
  • tofu
  • fish

When supplementing, look for products with:
  • magnesium, vitamin C and betaine hydrochloride for improved absorption
  • organically derived from bioavailable human food sources of calcium
  • no bone meal, dolomite, Tums or coral
