Calcium Info

Calcium is an essential ‘macromineral’ – required by the body in large quantities – and a critical nutrient during preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding. Our bodies require more calcium than any other mineral.

The balance of magnesium to calcium is vital for healthy function and particularly to prevent calcification and calcium deposits forming everywhere from the microcellular level through to tissues and organs. A ratio of no more than 2:1 calcium to magnesium is needed by the body for optimal functioning.

Also essential to correct calcium absorption are adequate levels of vitamin D, silica, boron, dietary fat intake and hydrochloric acid production in the stomach. Too much dietary fibre, sodium, and caffeine can reduce calcium absorption.

Calcium Benefits

Our bones contain 98% of our calcium stores, our teeth 1% and the remaining 1% is a vital element in blood clotting, neurotransmission, digestive enzyme activity, insulin secretion, regulating heartbeat and muscle contraction.

Maintaining optimal calcium levels keeps bones strong and healthy, improves weight management, stabilises blood pressure and protects your heart, eases premenstrual tension and reduces the risk of colon cancer. The best form of supplementation provides a balanced, bioavailable mineral formula, and focuses on enhancing our body’s absorption rate of calcium from food sources.

Calcium Side Effects

There are health risks associated with elevated blood calcium levels, so it’s important not to over-supplement. It is not advisable to take a stand alone calcium supplement over the long term without professional guidance.

    Since taking the Ultimate Bonecare my Bone scans have been on the plus side rather than negative. Far better than what I was asked to take originally.

  • go healthy calcium 1 a day

    star

    Great product. Decide to try as low calcium in diet.
    Always had problems in pass with other tablets digesting the calcium.
    Notice the difference nails stronger, and hopefully will help bones as been diagnosed with arthritis in knee.
    Also nice just to take the one capsule a day as many other brands are 3-4.
    Good value for money.
    Health post always delivers quick, never had any issues, and loving the value for money. Way cheaper than the shops. Great product

  • Easy to use, little flavour, great product.

    star

    Out of all the many calcium supplements we have tried over many years, this is definitely now our favourite. We are both getting on in years & with health issues requiring a calcium supplement we find this easy to take either sprinkled on our food on in a little water. It has stopped the cramps my husband got very badly as well.
