Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, and approximately 99% of the body’s calcium exists in the bones. Calcium requirements increase with age, gender, post-menopause, a diet low in calcium, pregnancy and lactation.
The major function of calcium is building and maintaining bones and teeth. Calcium helps assist in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Adequate intake of calcium reduces the risk of osteoporosis, increasing bone and skeletal strength. Calcium is also involved in various metabolic roles such as nerve transmission, contraction of muscles, enzyme activation and hormone function.
Vitamin D is essential for the absorption and utilisation of calcium. As we have been limiting our exposure to sunlight, low Vitamin D levels have been observed in some individuals. Deficiency of vitamin D results in lack of bone strength and density, and joint pain. Vitamin K also plays a necessary role in regulating the function of calcium in bone mineralization.
