Calcium is an essential mineral that your body needs every day. Calcium plays a number of important roles in the body. A deficiency can cause numerous adverse health issues. First, calcium is the major constituent of bones and teeth. More than 98% of the body’s calcium is found in those structures. In the rest of the body, calcium supports heart function, circulation, nerve function and muscle tone.
Insufficient calcium intake can cause the body to “rob” calcium from the bones to make up for the shortage. When this happens, low peak bone mass can result; this means that there will be a low amount of bone mass present at maturity. Low peak bone mass can be a contributing factor to the development of a potentially crippling disease of weak, thin, fragile bones called osteoporosis. More than 25 million people in the United States have this multifactorial disease, which is also affected by race, sex, heredity, body stature, diet, exercise level and lifestyle. Excess alcohol consumption and smoking are also considered risk factors in osteoporosis.
This product, like all of Kirkman’s calcium products, is manufactured from the highest quality calcium compounds that meet or exceed all governmental standards for purity, including heavy metals.
