Calcium plays a very important role in maintaining the normal physiological function. It is the most abundant mineral in the body found in some foods, added to others, available as a dietary supplement, and present in some medicines (such as antacids). Calcium is required for vascular contraction and vasodilation, muscle function, nerve transmission, intracellular signaling and hormonal secretion, though less than 1% of total body calcium in needed to support these critical metabolic functions.
Reservoir of Calcium- bone and teeth:
Serum calcium is very tightly regulated and does not fluctuate with changes in dietary intakes; the body uses bone tissue as a reservoir for, and source of calcium, to maintain constant concentrations of calcium in blood, muscle, and inter cellular fluids.
The remaining 99% of the body’s calcium supply is stored in the bones and teeth where it supports their structure and function. Bone itself undergoes continuous remodeling, with constant resorption and deposition of calcium into new bone.
Calcium intake and age:
The balance between bone resorption and deposition changes with age. Bone formation exceeds resorption in periods of growth in children and adolescents, whereas in early and middle adulthood both processes are relatively equal.
In aging adults, particularly among postmenopausal women, bone breakdown exceeds formation, resulting in bone loss that increases the risk of osteoporosis over time.
RDA of calcium intake:
Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is designated as average daily level of intake sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements of nearly all (97%-98%) health individuals.
They are listed in the following table in milligrams (mg) per day.
Dosage and directions for use: 1-2 softgels at a time, once a day
