Calcium Citrate Caps by Now Foods is a food supplement that supplies an optimal dose of high assimilation calcium. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. Total corporal calcium is approximately 1200g, which is the equivalent of saying that it represents 1,5-2% of our body weight. In fact, almost 99% of calcium is found in bone tissue and the remaining 1% is distributed throughout the blood, interstitial fluids and muscle cells.
A lack of calcium considerably contributes to the development of osteoporosis. Many studies have been published that indicate that an inadequate consumption of calcium during ones life is linked to a reduction in bone density and with a high rate of fractures. National polls on nutrition reveal that most people do not take enough calcium to ensure that their bones grow and remain healthy.
This is why it is essential to maintain a healthy diet and add a food supplement such as Calcium Citrate to our diet. Calcium Citrate is also enriched with some minerals (such as amino acid chelates), essential for maintaining bone health such as Magnesium, Copper, Manganese and Zinc and vitamin D (as ergocalciferol).
