How it works
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, and approximately 99% of the body’s calcium exists in the bones. The major function of calcium is building and maintaining bones and teeth.
Calcium is also involved in various metabolic roles such as nerve transmission, contraction of muscles and the regulation of heart muscle function.
Both calcium and magnesium are essential for bone health, as well as playing important roles in healthy muscle and nerve function. The levels of calcium and magnesium in this formula are in the desired ratio of 2: 1.
Vitamin D is essential for the absorption and utilisation of calcium. Deficiency of vitamin D results in lack of bone strength and density, and joint pain.
