Getting enough calcium can be a challenge especially if you don’t like taking tablets or capsules. This new Blueberry Flavour Liquid Calcium plus Vitamin D, 1000 mg/400 IU makes it easy – and it tastes good for a change! The liquid mineral formula is specially designed to support bone health and being in liquid form it facilitates optimum absorption.
Supporting bone health with dietary minerals is essential for growing bodies, and is just as important to maintain skeletal strength through our latter years and may contribute to a reduced risk of bone fractures due to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is an all too common bone disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of the bone structure. The National Osteoporosis Society (NOS) note that “one in two women and one in five men over the age of 50 in the UK will fracture a bone, mainly as a result of osteoporosis.” When it comes to taking supplements for bone health the NOS comment that “If we eat a healthy, varied diet then we should be able to get all the vitamins and minerals we need from food.” However, they also go on to say that “as we get older, we absorb nutrients less efficiently. Many older people also have smaller appetites so may benefit from supplements if they are getting insufficient nourishment from food.”
While many studies focus on calcium’s benefits for bone health, studies have also shown the importance of balancing calcium and phosphorus as well as vitamin D for osteoporosis prevention. Liquid Calcium plus Vitamin D, 1000 mg/400 IU from webber naturals® contains optimum amounts of Phosphorus and Vitamin D to improve the body’s absorption and use of calcium.
Why blend Vitamin D with Liquid Calcium?
While Calcium is the most prevalent mineral in bone, bone diseases such as osteoporosis are not only caused by a lack of calcium. Other nutrients and minerals are critical to maintaining healthy bones. Phosphorus is fundamental to growth, maintenance, and repair of all body tissues, including bones; phosphate actually makes up roughly half the weight of our bones. Optimum phosphorus intake throughout life helps ensure the proper balance to promote remineralization of bones and teeth and keeps them healthy.
Vitamin D facilitates calcium absorption from the intestines, decreases urinary calcium loss, and facilitates incorporation of calcium into the bones. Many osteoporosis sufferers could have prevented the disease’s advance by ensuring adequate Vitamin D intake along with their calcium. Despite solar exposure, there is a natural age-related decline in our ability to make adequate amounts of Vitamin D. Many experts recommend 400 to 600 IUs of supplemental Vitamin D per day, and 800 IUs if you already have thinned or osteoporotic bones.
