Calcium is the most present mineral in our body, with healthy individuals carrying over 2% of their body weight in calcium alone. Many of us think that calcium is used to strengthen bones and while this is true, it does so much more than that. Calcium contains essential nutrients that strengthen teeth, support a healthy blood pressure level and encourage efficient muscle and nerve function.
It’s important to note that we continually lose calcium through our sweat, skin, urine and stool and because our bodies can’t make calcium, we must replenish this every day by eating foods that are rich in calcium such as milk, green vegetables, cheese and yoghurt.
Calcium is heavily involved in the growth and nourishment of our skeletal system. Calcium helps to maintain bone density and a lack of calcium can lead to brittle bones, fractures and disorders such as osteoporosis. Calcium works in conjunction with vitamin D, vitamin K and protein to protect the skeletal system.
The compounds in calcium help to dilate blood vessels, improving the flow of blood through your body and supporting healthy blood pressure levels. Calcium also improves the transport efficiency of chemical nerve signals from the brain to the heart, helping to regulate heart rhythms and circulation.
The nutrients in calcium are also beneficial in the release of neurotransmitters from the brain that take ownership of muscle movement. By improving the flow of communication between the brain, muscle and nerves, your body is able to function at a capacity that enables you to operate at optimal levels.
More than just a bone supplement, calcium is an essential nutrient required by the whole body. Our Liquid Calcium soft gels are suitable for adults of all ages and two capsules daily totals 50% of your daily calcium needs. Strong levels of calcium can also be found in our Soy Isoflavone with Calcium soft gel.
