Calcium is perhaps the most important nutrient for the maintenance of bone health. As we age, our bones become more susceptible to damage as our bone-building cells, known as osteoblasts, diminish while the cells responsible for bone destruction, osteoclasts, continue to thrive. With proper calcium intake, one can help offset this potential damage. Vitamin D’s principal function is to maintain adequate levels of calcium in the blood. Recently, vitamin D deficiency has been referred to as the silent epidemic, with an estimated 40% of the population over the age of 50 affected. Without vitamin D, the body is unable to utilize the calcium supplied via the diet or supplements. Calcium plus vitamin D makes for an outstanding bone support product.
