Description: Calcium (citrate) + vit. D3

Health claims

According to the European Commission, calcium is essential for maintaining healthy bones.

Calcium, the most abundant mineral in the human body, has an essential role in the building and solidity of bone mass as well as the prevention of osteoporosis.

Present in almost all the cells of the body, it is involved in the very many biochemical reactions vital to their functioning.

The calcium citrate is combined with Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), which enables the bone to absorb the calcium: this vitamin, supplied by food or produced by the body when it is exposed to the sun, is all the more indispensable as it is often deficient in adults, and in particular, in old people.

Furthermore, it plays a part in the prevention of colon cancer: during digestion, the excess of calcium neutralises fatty acids, a source of irritation to the mucous membrane of the intestine.

Of organic origin, calcium citrate is the source of calcium most easily absorbed, best assimilated and best tolerated by the body. Potentialised by Vitamin D3, it is also the most efficient in preventing and treating osteoporosis.

Detailed information

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body. It plays an essential role in the construction and solidity of the bone mass as well as in the prevention of osteoporosis.

Its presence is found in nearly all the cells of the body and it plays a part in very many biochemical reactions and is indispensable to their function: it enables muscles to contract, the heart to beat, blood vessels to control blood pressure, nerve cells to communicate, and blood to clot.

Also, it plays a role in the prevention of cancer of the colon: during the digestive process, surplus calcium neutralises fatty acids, which are a source of irritation of the intestinal mucosa.

According to the experts, calcium supplies are very often insufficient, in particular in old people. Indeed they take in calcium less efficiently in the intestine, although their needs are greater due to ageing of the bone.

The bone is a dynamic tissue which is continually being destroyed and reformed. With age, the destruction (resorption) of the bone becomes preponderant, causing osteoporosis, a risk factor in fractures and compression of the vertebrae. This is a mechanism made worse where external supplies are insufficient as the body will have to draw directly on the calcium which is indispensable to many bodily functions from bone reserves, making the skeleton even more fragile.

The supply of extra calcium can be ensured by nutritional supplements containing a source of calcium. It is usually calcium carbonate or calcium citrate.

Calcium carbonate is often obtained from shells, from bone or coral powder, or dolomite. The “raw materials” are of natural origin but may be contaminated by toxic metals (heavy metals) and other pollutants. Moreover, they can be badly tolerated by some people who do not have enough gastric acid to digest them, causing constipation and bloating.

We use calcium citrate which is organic in origin. It is well-tolerated, as calcium citrate is the source of calcium best absorbed and assimilated by the body. Nor does it interfere with the absorption of other minerals (iron, magnesium, zinc) or vitamins (A, D, C).

The calcium citrate is combined with Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), which enables the bone to absorb the calcium: this vitamin, supplied by food or produced by the body when it is exposed to the sun, is all the more indispensable as it is often deficient in adults, and in particular, in old people.

The Calcium is manufactured by a laboratory according to the BPF pharmaceutical standards in force (the BPF are the Good Manufacturing Practices of the European Pharmaceutical Industry (in English GMP: Good Manufacturing Practice). It also conforms with the Standard ISO-9001, an international quality standard.
