Calcium Supplement

Calcium Supplement - why calcium.

Why is calcium supplement so important? People would usually use calcium supplement when they don't intake enough calcium with the food they eat. Calcium is critical for many body functions. Examples of these functions are transmission of nerve impulses, regulation of the heartbeat, clotting of blood, and building and maintaining healthy bones. That is why controlling the intake of calcium (whether it is with the food or by using the calcium supplement) is so important.

Calcium Supplement - intake of calcium.

Sufficient calcium intake is essential since the human body cannot produce calcium by itself. And the body loses calcium all the time through shed nails, skin, sweat, hair, etc. This is where the calcium supplement comes to help. Calcium could be found in many foods so the accurately designed diet may replace the need for calcium supplement.

Calcium Supplement - calcium daily intake.

Whether you decide to use calcium supplement or follow some specific diet, you can find the information about how much calcium to intake daily from various sources. For example, the National Academy of Sciences and the National Osteoporosis Foundation advises daily calcium intakes of 1000-1200 milligrams for adult men and women.

Calcium Supplement - make sure you get enough calcium.

You should use calcium supplement only if you are sure that the proper diet and consumption of calcium from food is not enough to make sure that your body gets enough calcium. If you do not have enough calcium in your diet, consult with doctor to make sure that calcium supplement is right for you and that you balance the intake of calcium from diet and from supplement. Calcium supplements are usually available without a prescription.
