Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. 99% of it is stored in the bones and teeth‚ where it helps to provide structural support. But calcium doesn’t work alone – magnesium and vitamin D have been found to be important co-factors in calcium metabolism and bone health.
The body uses vitamin D to help absorb the calcium you consume. And research shows that adequate calcium and vitamin D intake throughout life as part of a healthful diet‚ along with physical activity‚ may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life. Magnesium also helps support strong bones‚ and optimal levels of this important mineral can help support calcium metabolism in the body.
Rapid weight loss – such as that experienced by bariatric surgery patients – can be associated with bone loss‚ so it is especially important for these individuals to meet their daily calcium requirement post-surgery. Additionally‚ patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery may experience reduced calcium absorption due to a reduction of stomach acid.
Twinlab Bariatric Support Calcium Wafers help to address the unique calcium needs of bariatric surgery patients by providing 100% of the Daily Value for calcium in an easily absorbed form‚ as well as magnesium and vitamin D to further assist with calcium absorption.
