Calcium Benefits

Calcium is vital for a number of basic functions in your body, yet despite it being an essential mineral, your body cannot produce it.

SunVit-D3 offers vitamin D supplements with added calcium carbonate for those who, maybe due to dietary restrictions or medical conditions, perhaps don’t get enough calcium through the food they eat. Consuming enough calcium – 700 milligrams per day for healthy men and women, as recommended by the NHS – can benefit your body in the following ways:

Developing And Maintaining Strong Bones

Children need calcium for the development of healthy bones as they grow up, and it helps to ensure that our bones stay healthy and strong throughout our lifetime.

 

Your Blood

Calcium contributes to normal blood clotting. It’s not a glamorous topic but it is an important one – without the blood clotting process, damaged blood vessels are not able to repair themselves, meaning even the smallest cut or scrape could be dangerous.

 

Thinking, Learning, Moving

According to the EFSA, Calcium contributes to normal neurotransmission. What does that mean? When brain cells need to pass messages to one another, they use chemicals called neurotransmitters. This sharing of chemical messages is known as neurotransmission. Neurotransmission has a role in everything we do – the way we learn, behave, move and feel. The brain uses neurotransmission to tell your heart to beat and your lungs to breathe.

 

Your Teeth

Calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal teeth.

 

Healthy Digestion, Metabolism And Muscles

Calcium helps certain enzymes in your body function normally, which help digest the food you eat and absorbs other important minerals and vitamins. Calcium also contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism and  muscle function.

How Vitamin D And Calcium Work Together

Vitamin D contributes to the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium, and helps to ensure normal calcium levels in the blood. This is why we offer vitamin D and calcium in one supplement.

Both calcium and vitamin D are needed for normal growth and development of bone in children.

Please Note:

The above claims have been verified by the European Food Safety Authority.

If you’re unable to meet your recommended daily calcium intake from food, supplements can be used but ask your doctor for advice. Please note that it is possible to overdose on calcium – see our FAQs for more information.
