Ca², Ca, Calcium

Calcium is an essential mineral, its importance is related to the functions it plays in bone mineralization, especially in bone health, from the formation and maintenance of the structure, to rigidity of the skeleton. Its absorption occurs by active transport in the digestive tract, mainly in the duodenum and proximal jejunum. The human body is unable to produce calcium and supplementation and / or consumption through diet is required.

What are Calcium benefits?

Calcium, widely known to be responsible for bone strength, is extremely important in our body. There is a recommended daily intake of 1,000 mg/day, but we do not always manage to ingest this amount. With calcium supplementation, you can meet your body’s needs without worrying, obtaining benefits not only for the bones, but also for muscle contraction, tooth structure, coagulation, and blood pH balance. Take our test and check the indications!

Bone and Joint Health Calcium and Bone and Joint Health

Bone and joint health are deeply affected by vitamins, hormones and minerals, such as calcium, vitamin D and thyroid hormones. Supplements that affect bone and joint health help their structure and strength, in addition to contributing to the healthy balance of involved nutraceuticals.
  • Bone Density

    Bone density or bone mineral density (BMD) is the amount of bone mineral in bone tissue. The measurement of bone mineral density is used in medicine as an indirect indicator of osteoporosis and risk of fractures.

Women's Health Calcium and Women's Health

The female body has specific physiological processes involving sex hormones, health of the ovaries, uterus and vagina, menstrual cycle, pregnancy and lactation and menopause. The compounds indicated for women's health assist in the synthesis and secretion of these hormones, in premenstrual and menopausal symptoms and in the protection of female sexual organs.
  • Pregnancy

    During pregnancy, it is natural for the baby to feed on whatever is ingested by the mother, so the mother's diet should be multivitamin for her body and that of the child. A varied and healthy diet should provide the nutrients necessary for good health, however, supplementation compensates for possible deficiencies and boosts the levels of certain substances in the ever-changing body.
