Calcium and vitamin D work together in tandem to potentially strengthen your bones and help reduce one's chances of weak or porous bones‚ which would result in osteoporosis. Progressive Labs' Calcium Citrate + D is one calcium supplement that not only offers the bone-essential mineral‚ but also other ingredients meant to possibly promote absorption and bone growth.
Calcium supplements like these are meant to address low calcium levels in the blood. Calcium plays an integral role in several life-essential processes in our body. For instance‚ the proper functioning of nerve‚ cells‚ muscles‚ and‚ most famously‚ bones‚ relies on healthy calcium levels in our blood. However‚ bones are unique among these because both inorganic (outer) and organic (inner) bones can act as calcium storage for the body. Therefore‚ if calcium levels are low‚ our body's will steal calcium from our bones in order to facilitate the other calcium-dependent processes. This then leaves our bones weak and susceptible to osteoporosis. That's why‚ in addition to diet‚ calcium supplements can be essential for not only optima bone health‚ but general health as well.
If healthy bones are your goal‚ you can't ignore vitamin D. Calcium supplements with vitamin D know that this essential vitamin is responsible for regulating the level of minerals (including calcium) in our body. Vitamin D is most commonly acquired through direct sunlight‚ storing itself in our body fat. But if you receive very little sun exposure due to an office job or if you live in a region that sees very little sunlight‚ sometimes you can't get the vitamin D your bodies require. That's why these calcium supplements include vitamin D‚ to make sure the calcium your body is getting‚ isn't wasted.
Like calcium‚ manganese is another mineral. Some studies and research suggest that manganese could potentially be involved in bone formation‚ which is why it's included in this calcium supplement.
