Uses of Calcium Supplement

Calcium Supplements may be used to treat conditions caused by low calcium levels such as
  • Bone loss (osteoporosis)
  • Weak bones (osteomalacia/rickets)
  • Decreased activity of the parathyroid gland (hypoparathyroidism)
  • Certain muscle disease (latent tetany- spasm or cramping of hands and feet)

Maintains Bone Health
  • Calcium positively impacts bone mass and bone density strengthens the bones, thus may prevent conditions such as osteoporosis and bone fractures.
  • Calcium Supplementation helps both the genders but especially benefits post-menopausal and lactating women where the need for calcium is high

Benefits in Dental Care
  • Similar to bones Calcium is also required for maintenance of teeth, as it strengthens the outer hard shell also called as caramel layer of the teeth

Helps in Muscle Contraction
  • Calcium helps in transferring signals between our nervous system and the muscle cells to coordinate muscle contraction and relaxation. It is especially required to coordinate heart pumping, facial and eye movements and movements of respiratory muscles

How to Choose a Right Calcium Supplement

1. Choosing the right Calcium Compound
Calcium in supplement is found in combination with other substances. Elemental calcium is the amount of calcium actually used by the body. Consumers may look for Calcium compounds that contain higher amount of elemental calcium in their supplement.
  • Calcium carbonate (40% elemental calcium)
  • Calcium citrate (21% elemental calcium)
  • Calcium gluconate (9% elemental calcium)
  • Calcium lactate (13% elemental calcium)
Although calcium citrate is easily absorbed in the body but since it contains only 21% of elemental calcium, one may need to take high dosage of this compound. Hence, Calcium carbonate is suitable since it contains the highest amount of elemental calcium (about 40%) than other compounds and needs to be taken in comparatively smaller doses.
GNC Calcium plus 600 mg with Magnesium and Vitamin D3 contains Calcium carbonate, the most abundant form of element calcium compound.
2. Presence of nutrients that absorbs Calcium efficiently
Mineral Magnesium and Vitamin D3 work in synergy in absorbing calcium. Magnesium helps in conversion of Vitamin D in its active form known as Calcitriol which in turn plays a major role in improving the concentration of Calcium. Both Magnesium and Vitamin D3 are present in GNC’s Calcium Plus that enhances the absorption of calcium in our body.
