About Calcium with Vitamin D3:
This highly absorbable calcium, reduces risk of osteoporosis†; combined with vitamin D3 to support bone, cardiovascular and colon health.
*Several clinical trials reveal the positive effects of combined supplemental calcium and vitamin D for bone health. Vitamin D is important for its ability to promote intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption, reduce urinary calcium loss and enhance healthy bone composition.
Vitamin D may also provide cardiovascular support for some individuals, which may be attributed to its effect on calcium metabolism or possibly by helping to maintain healthy plasma renin function. Additionally, calcium has been associated with supporting distal colon health. A role for vitamin D in supporting colon health by promoting healthy cellular function has also been suggested.
Preliminary evidence suggests that vitamin D may also support healthy glucose metabolism, since vitamin D receptors are present on the islet cells of the pancreas.
Calcium with Vitamin D3 supports optimal calcium absorption and bone mineral composition, in addition to promoting potential cardiovascular and colon health.
In a large trial published in the New England Journal of Medicine involving over 3,000 women, supplementation with calcium and vitamin D daily for one and a half years supported bone composition of the femur.
In another study, calcium and vitamin D supplementation promoted calcium utilization and maintained healthy bones in postmenopausal women. Calcium citrate malate combined with vitamin D moderated the rate of bone loss for a separate group of postmenopausal women, maintaining support for the spine.
An analysis of several trials indicates a positive influence of calcium on cardiovascular health, an effect that may be most specific for salt-sensitive individuals.

†Risk factors for osteoporosis include sex, race, age and inadequate calcium intake. Populations at highest risk for osteoporosis include Caucasian, Asian, and postmenopausal women, and elderly women and men. Adequate calcium intake throughout life is linked to a reduced risk of osteoporosis, as calcium helps to optimize peak bone mass during adolescence and early adulthood in conjunction with exercise and healthy diet. Calcium intake greater than 2,000 mg per day has no further known benefit to bone health.
