Calcium is the most abundant mineral found in the body, where it plays a number of important roles.
Essential for healthy bones and teeth
Some of the primary roles which calcium plays in the body are:
- Maintenance of normal bones and teeth
- Normal muscle function and neurotransmission
- Regulating muscle contractions, including heartbeat
- Ensuring blood clots normally
Highly bioavailable premium formulation
Most calcium supplements contain Calcium Carbonate, however our Calcium capsules use a citrate form which is more easily absorbed and carries all the same benefits. It may be of particular benefit to those who are sensitive to antacids or who have difficulty producing adequate stomach acid; Calcium Carbonate carries a risk of the stomach overcompensating by producing more acid while Calcium Citrate has no effect on stomach acid.
Formulated to maximise absorption into the body
The high bioavailability of Calcium Citrate, combined with the ease of absorption makes this form of Calcium particularly suitable for those aged 65 and over. For those on the go, it's a convenient option too, as Citrate can be taken without food, will dissolve quicker and is absorbed faster into the body compared with regular Calcium Carbonate.
Just two of our improved Calcium Citrate capsules contains 1000mg of Citrate, which provides 210mg of elemental Calcium (Ca) in a vegetarian capsule shell.
