An interesting thing to analyse and then answer….
“Which nutrient are helpful for proper growth and functioning of bones and teeth??”
I know. You would be confident enough to answer its “Calcium” considering it a perfect answer for this jackpot question. But let me put into your kind knowledge that you are not completely right. Because Calcium absorption is not possible without Vitamin D, .
WE PEOPLE are born to have vitamins and minerals deficiencies that are majorly required by our body such as Calcium, Magnesium, zinc and list of Vitamins.
So, I would like to take initiative about Calcium supplementation, with its proper use in combined effect with other vitamins and minerals that are Magnesium & Vitamin D.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in our body. Our body requires calcium for building up and maintaining strong bones. It reduces blood pressure, helps in maintaining the bone density and strength. Moreover, our nerves, muscles and our heart also needs calcium for proper functioning. But one should always keep in mind that proper Calcium absorption is the major necessity without which, our task of taking Calcium is not complete.
It is a proven fact and a strong belief that Calcium works better in synchronization with Magnesium & Vitamin D because of two reasons preferably –
- Vitamin D increases the Calcium absorption & utilization from the stomach and hence, reduces its excretion from the kidneys. And thus, promotes Bone Health and Muscle contraction.
- As Calcium is preferred to decrease irregularities of heart, so it helps in regulating heart contraction and relaxation.
Did you Know..!!!
“After the age of 40 years, human body stops making calcium by its own So one has to take it through other sources.!!”
Studies have shown that when we take the combination of Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D altogether, then apart from helping in improving bone health, it could prove to be helpful in various degenerative diseases such as protection against cancer, controlling blood sugar level & high BP issues (though these add-ons are not definite).
CalMagD (from Nutrilite) is a dietary supplement that shows results by providing extra calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D in your body. Also, this combination results in proper Calcium absorption.
Note : If you are having high blood levels of Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D, OR you have allergy from any of these minerals or Vitamin, then it is strongly recommended that you DO NOT USE them without consulting your family doctor.
