Calcium to aid in the formation and maintenance of bones and Vitamin D3 helps to improve calcium absorption.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, about 99% of the calcium in the body is stored in the bones and teeth, and the rest is stored in the blood. The main function of calcium is to form bones and teeth and maintain their health. Calcium is also responsible for many metabolic functions, including nerve signaling, muscle contraction, and keeping the heart muscle functioning properly. Vitamin D is indispensable in the process of calcium absorption and mode of action. A lack of vitamin D in the body can reduce the strength and density of bones, leading to joint pain.
Bone mass grows rapidly in childhood and adolescence, reaching a steady peak at age 30, and then slowly losing it with age. Once the bone mass is lost, it cannot be replaced. Therefore, before the age of 30, we should pay an effort to increase calcium absorption and increase the peak of bone mass. After the age of 30, supplementation should be recommended to strengthen the bones and delay the loss. In women after menopause, the secretion of estrogen decreases, which reduces calcium absorption and increases the required calcium intake.
