Calcium is one of the most important macronutrients that are present in the body. The largest amounts of calcium are deposited in teeth and bones and in the structures of some cellular walls. Calcium ions also contain intracellular and extracellular fluid.
In addition to building functions, calcium plays many other significant roles. It activates a large group of enzymes, determines the process of muscle contraction (including the myocardium), participates in the production of neurotransmitters, and ensures the proper conduction of bioelectrical impulses. Calcium deficiency is dangerous for health, resulting in bone fragility, tooth deterioration, muscle pain, and cardiac arrhythmia. There may also occur nosebleeds, limb numbness, and even depression.
It is assumed that a properly composed and varied diet should fully cover the body's demand for calcium. However, this is not so obvious. Studies show that calcium deficiencies most often occur in women (especially in menopausal age), athletes, people with milk allergy or lactose intolerance, seniors, and adolescents. Specialists are increasingly recommending calcium supplements to these groups, in order to easily supplement deficiencies of this element.
Calcium works in synergy with magnesium, and it is worth being combined with vitamins D and K2, which condition the calcium management in the body. We offer both calcium mono-preparations with and complex formulas, based on calcium and other compounds, allowing for the proper absorption of calcium and its effectiveness in the system.
